Good evening and welcome to Volume Seventy-Four of the Monday Blues & Beats. Today might belong to the Maybach Empire, seeing as they hit us with not one, not two, but three brand new jams off the upcoming Self Made, Vol. 3. Only slightly outdone was Cole, with his two fresh cuts of his upcoming sophomore effort Born Sinner. We also have new material from CHVRCHES, Joey Bada$$, Gold Panda, Hodgy Beats and Ellie Goulding covering an Alt-J number…Let’s go!
OH LAWD! Welcome to Monday, Volume 62, and a unbelievably luscious week of music. Four Tet chopped up JT/Jay-Z’s “Suit & Tie,” both She & Him and James Blake announced new albums accompanied by brand new tracks and both Lupe and Drake dropped freebies on the same day. Plus we have the first taste of Meek’s Dreamchasers 3, the next instalment of HS87’s All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of, a couple jams from Harry Fraud & Mac Miller and much more.
Happy Monday and welcome to the new look. I’m testing out a few new themes currently, and having fun with it. Regardless, there’s still new music that takes precedence over aesthetics. AlunaGeorge has done it again with a brand new single, Little Boots is finally back in the studio, Juicy J goes in on a Passion Pit instrumental, and Kid Cudi has superpowers? Plus new jams from Joey Bada$$, Still Corners, Ty Dolla $ign and more.
Good evening and happy Monday to all of you. I took a mini vacation to San Francisco last week, so I apologize for the lack of posts. However, that just means Volume 60 is twice the size. 22 tracks coming at you today including J. Cole’s first official single to Born Sinner, Phoenix with their new single, as well as fresh material from Hit-Boy, The Strokes, Purity Ring, London Grammar, Frank Ocean, Dave East and more. I was hoping i’d have a new song from The National seeing as they just announced a new album (coming May) and tour with the Dirty Projectors, but sadly nothing yet.
I hope you all enjoyed the Grammy’s and Family Day, because I did exactly that. However, after ignoring the world for a day, it’s time to post some new music. J. Cole dropped a FreEP this morning out of nowhere, but i’m not complaining. After they announced a tour last week, The Postal Service have graced us with new material. Justin Timberlake has released his second single from the upcoming LP, and you’ll find new music from Youth Lagoon, Lloyd Banks, A$AP Rocky, Chvrches and more in this weeks mix.
Happy Monday to everyone, hope you all were feeling the Top 25 Albums list. This week Vampire Weekend announced an upcoming (experimental) album, The Postal Service is apparently headlining a tour, it’s been what 10 years; but who’s counting and as per usual lots of good music came out of the week.
