Sorry for the tardiness, my music hosting server was down yesterday. But here we are.
April 21st marked the fifth annual Record Story Day! Subsequently leaving us with a great week in music.
This week the Icelandic group Sigur Rós released a double single with two incredibly heartfelt, emotional tracks.
The lovely Fiona Apple has released a single for her album coming this summer after a seven year absence.
Beach House let off another gorgeous single for the upcoming project.
Feist and Mastodon put together remixes of each other’s songs. A very odd combination but the folk and metal actually work well together.
A$AP Rocky and Hit-Boy teamed up for an addictive banger, while Mac and Curren$y chill out.
Also included in this week’s mix: Lana Del Rey on BBC, Wiz Khalifa, MellowHigh, Major Lazer, A Thousand Fuegos, Gotye & Tiësto, Talib Kweili, B.o.B, Riz & Drake, Hoodie Allen, Drink To Me & Nipsey Hussle.
