The Daily 5: a feature in which we provide at least five absolutely guilt-free MP3s every day (more or less). Check out today’s goods.
Jens Lekman – “An Argument With Myself”
This is easily our new summer jam. New EP out September 20. Finally.
Big K.R.I.T. – “Happy Birthday Hip-Hop” f/ Yelawolf
These two talented rappers on the rise can rhyme circles around most of the young MCs that dominate the conversation these days, as shown on their latest collaboration, “Happy Birthday Hip-Hop”. KRIT’s Last King 2 mixtape is out soon.
EMA – “Endless, Nameless” (Nirvana Cover)
For SPIN‘s Nirvana tribute album, Newermind, reverb-loving babe, EMA covered Nevermind hidden track “Endless, Nameless”. It’s brash and loud and free.
Spectrals – “Big Baby”
UK singer/songwriter Spectrals will be releasing a new album called Bad Penny on October 25. You can download teaser track “Big Baby” in preparation.
Fam-Lay – “Beach Cruiser” (prod. by Chad Hugo)
With “Beach Cruiser”, The Neptunes’ Chad Hugo provides a grimy beat for underrepresented Norfolk rapper Fam-Lay that would paint Tyler The Creator green with envy.
