Atlanta's Black Lips release another freebie from their Mark Ronson-produced LP Arabia Mountain.
Planningtorock - "The Break"
DFA recording artist Planningtorock is Janine Rostron, a Berlin-based UK artist making stunning, melodramatic music, not unlike what the Knife was making in 2004 & 2005. Planningtorock's forthcoming W LP is out June 14. You can stream it here.
Jhameel - "The Human Condition"
Jhameel's "The Human Condition," the title track from an album released earlier this year (for free), is bursting at the seams with pop joviality, the kind of summerific grooves meant for a day out in the sun. You can download Jhameel's album The Human Conditionhere.
Lil B - Bitch Mob: Respect Da Bitch Vol. 1
Here is the new mixtape from the prolific and controversial Based God, Lil B. Recently, the rapper has made headlines claiming he will release an album called I'm Gay.
Soft Metals - "Psychic Driving"
We've mentioned dreamy Portland-based electro duo Soft Metals only once before, but now they're back with "Psychic Driving" and with news of the release of their self-titled debut LP. Soft Metals, the album, will drop July 19 on Brooklyn label Captured Tracks.
