Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 42

Monday means new music on AHM, so update those libraries, playlists and iPods.

Another track from Kendrick Lamar, who’s releasing his good kid, m.A.A.d city later this month. DJ Drama let go a couple more tracks off his Quality Street Music, dropping tomorrow. Along with new stuff from Lana Del Rey, Crystal Castles, Frank Ocean, J. Cole, and more…

UPDATE: Another late addition from Kendrick Lamar, it’s too good not to throw in the mix.

Kendrick Lamar – Art of Peer Pressure

I think everyone is looking forward to the new album from Black Hippy’s K.Dot. It features the likes of Drake, GaGa, Dre, T-Minus, Hit-Boy and most likely his TDE label mates. Produced by Rune Rask.

Kendrick Lamar – Compton (feat. Dr. Dre)

K. Dot just announced his tracklist/features and drops this absolute beauty featuring The Doctor, with a banging beat from Just Blaze. good kid, m.A.A.d city out October 22, Pre-Order on iTunes Here

J. Cole – Get Free ColeWorld

5 months ago, I posted the original by Major Lazer called “Get Free,” now the synthpop happy-go-lucky track gets some sass courtesy of Roc Nation’s Jermaine Cole.

Lana Del Rey – Ride

Lana Del Rey – Burning Desire

Ms. Del Rey finally announced the official tracklist for the re-released of Born To Die (The Paradise Edition). It will feature 9 new tracks (the two above are included).

DJ Drama – Same Ol’ Story (feat. Kid Ink, ScHoolboy Q, Corey Gunz & Childish Gambino)

A Drama record is similar to a Khaled record in the fact it has a handful of quality joints, mixed with a bunch of sub-par ones. This one however, is that of quality stature. Produced by V12 The Hitman. Quality Street Music drops tomorrow, Pre-Order on iTunes HERE

Mayer Hawthorne – No Strings (RAC Remix)

I always look forward to The Remix Artist Collective doing their thing. Hawthorne released a 6-track free remix album today, download it HERE.

Crystal Castles – Wrath of God

The Toronto experimental electronic grop are back at it, announcing Crystal Castles (III) will be out November 5.

Frank Ocean – Blue Whale

Frankie let this joint go via Tumblr, where he spits some impressive bars.

Rihanna – Diamonds

A new single from RiRi, and just as addictive as the rest of them. Produced by Stargate and Benny Blanco, co-written by Sia, who’s found herself aligned with a few mainstream artists these days.

The Album Leaf – Descent

It’s been a couple years since we’ve heard from one of my favourite dream pop artists, but Jimmy LaValle has a new EP out Forward/Return, Download it on iTunes HERE

Boaz – America (feat. ScHoolboy Q)

Off his brand new mixtape Bases Loaded. The beat is fire thanks to I.D. Labs, and the lyrical content is spot on, with a wicked verse from Black Hippy’s ScHoolboy Q.
