The Joy Formidable – Wolf’s Law

I’m incredibly happy to announce the Welsh indie rock/dream poppers are back for their sophomore record. Stay tuned for details on the project.

A.C. Newman – Not Talking

New Pornographers frontman is ready for his third solo release, Shut Down The Streets out October 9.

Common – No Sell Out

No I.D. let this freebie go via Twitter a couple days ago. There’s a great old school, demo vibe to this joint. These two Chicago natives always cook up something good.

Freelance Whales – Spitting Image

The Queens indie poppers let go of the second single off their upcoming second album Diluvia, also out October 9.

Rapsody – Round Table Discussion (feat. Mac Miller & The Cool Kids)

The North Carolina rapper is finally ready to drop her first official album. This one is produced by Mr. Manager 9th Wonder and features some smooth emcees.

Rita Ora – Love And War (feat. J. Cole)

An All-Roc Nation compilation here, with Stargate on the beat. No verse from Cole, but a mean hook.

Busta Rhymes – Till We Die (feat. Rick Ross & Trey Songz)

Busta released Year Of The Dragon this week for free via Google Play. Produced by Dready Beats with Trey Songz murdering the hook.

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti – Only In My Dreams

Ariel Pink just released his ninth album in ten years via 4AD Records. This track has a 60s vibe to it, soak it up while we still have some summer left.

Consequence – Why Do I Even Go Home (feat. John Legend)

Consequence hooks up with his old label mate to complete this smooth jam.
