Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius are currently working on a little album you might have heard of called WZRD, and today we received the second single off of that project. We were teased with a snippet of “Teleport 2 Me, Jamie” back in December, and now we have the full thing. If you’ve seen the movie “Drive” you may recognize the music used on the track is “Under Your Spell” by Desire, and I actually like this song more than I liked “Brake”. Be sure to check out WZRD when it comes out on February 28th.
Although he is usually busy enjoying soup and harassing the members of Odd Future, Chris Brown had time to shoot this video for “Why Stop Now” with Busta Rhymes. This comes on the heels of their hit “Look At Me Now”, which spawned countless viral videos last year. There’s no doubt that this is a Hype Williams video, and it has some crazy cool visuals (Bussa Buss covered in diamonds?) throughout. One problem though: Is the crazy-out-of-control look really good for Chris Brown, what with his past involving Rihanna and all?
Phony Ppl are a nine piece ensemble from Brooklyn who make jazz/hip-hop/funk music unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. This album has been in the works for a few years, and it looks like the hard work payed off. It’s hard to put into words just how good the music itself is, so I guess you’ll just have to give it a listen. If you like what you hear, heard over to their Bandcamp page and buy the whole album (it’s only $5).[audio http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/2/3246123//11 Break it Off..mp3]
Does this count as softcore pornography? I’ve never watched that stuff but this is pretty damn close to what I imagine it being like. The hair, the lips, the empty stare, I love it all.
Another great song off of the “Drive” soundtrack was “Under Your Spell” by Desire, and I’ve been listening to some of their other music recently. I came across this video today, and apparently it was filmed in Miami during a hurricane watch last fall. The video has a lo-fi feel to it that reminds me a lot of the visuals for Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”.
So I saw the movie “Drive” a few weeks ago and I’ve been listening to the soundtrack ever since. The synth-driven pop music that makes up the soundtrack provides a fitting backdrop to a movie that feels both vintage and modern at the same time. One of the songs that caught my attention right off the bat was “A Real Hero (ft. Electric Youth)” by College, and it has been played multiple times a day since watching the movie. Listen to the song below and hit the link for a download if you like it.
Everyone knows that Sunday mornings suck. As a college student, I can tell you that there is nothing worse than realizing that the weekend is almost over and tomorrow you have to get up for that dreaded 8am lecture. Fortunately for us, Frank Ocean put up a new track called “Voodoo” over on his Tumblr for all of us to enjoy on this beautiful morning.[audio http://www.fileden.com/files/2012/1/2/3246123//Voodoo.mp3]
