Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 19

Mark Foster (Foster The People) teamed up with Kimbra (featured on Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”) and DJ A-Trak for Converse’s 3 Artists, 1 Song project.

The excitement surrounding a Theophilus London/A$AP Rocky collaboration is hard to contain. Using a Cy Coleman/Dorothy Fields sample circa 1966 made famous in 1967 by Shirley Bassey.

Finally some new material from the New York Indie Hip Hop artist Aesop Rock. It’s been awhile.

Joshua Tillman is a folk singer/songwriter who’s been around the map, literally and figuratively. He’s released 7 solo albums over 4 different record labels. Tillman drummed for the Philadelphia band Saxon Shore from 2001-2004 and Seattle’s Fleet Foxes from 2008-2011. After recording a cassette tape before his 4:30 AM shifts at a Seattle bakery, Damien Jurado heard it, and invited him on tour with him. Now, Josh is recording under the alias Father John Misty for Sub Pop Records, you can find his first single in the mix.

New music from Breakbot, Meek Mill, B.o.B, French Montana
