    G-Eazy Recruits French Montana to 'Say' Goodbye to the Haters

    For a guy who has referred to himself as the "rap game James Dean" (on "The Day It All Changed") and honed his performances on Warped Tour, G-Eazy doesn't have the most traditional hip-hop background. With his new B-side, "Say," the Bay Area rapper taps French Montana to take on the haters. G-Eazy spits his mantra ("A crew full of misfits / Now watch us go the distance") over dramatic piano and blasting horns in the Ty Fife-produced track.G-Eazy spent most of the past five years building hype online through EPs and mixtapes, but finally dropped his These Things Happenfull-length this past June. Listen to and download "Say" for free below and pick up the LP on his website. (Bonus: For those of you who are averse to paying for music, G-Eazy also gave away a big portion of his back catalog for free in the lead-up to the LP's release.)

  • Kiesza

    Arches Delivers Pulsing House Remix of Kiesza's 'Giant In My Heart'

    Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza danced through Brooklyn in her one-take video for "Hideaway" (which was also the title track of her debut EP released earlier this month). Here Belgian house duo Arches keep the party going with their synth-driven, extended remix of her second single, "Giant in My Heart." The cut deals with love lost, but Kiesza's commanding voice triumphs over the heartbreak. The song will appear on the singer's Giant in My Heart EP, which features five remixes of the lead track and is due out on August 11 in the UK via Lokal Legend/Virgin EMI.

  • Mystery Skulls

    A Grim Basketball Game Sets the Scene for Mystery Skulls' 'Paralyzed' Video

    A team of Grim Reapers take their talents to the basketball court in a hilariously bizarre new music video for Mystery Skulls' pulsing synth-pop track "Paralyzed." In the Bo Mirosseni-directed short, the cloaked and hooded figures (who all wear gold high-top sneakers) show off their skills, from trick dribbling to dunking so hard the rim catches fire.This isn't the first time Mystery Skulls, the artist name for Luis Dubuc, has referenced the occult in one of his music videos: The equally awesome homage to The Exorcist for "Ghosts" features an incompetent priest whose dance moves prove far better than his ability to actually banish demons.Details are scarce about Mystery Skull's debut album, which will arrive this fall via Warner Bros. Records, but today "Paralyzed" is re-released as a single.

  • Kevin Morby

    Hear Kevin Morby's Wistful Instrumental 'We Did It All Wrong'

    The Babies singer/Woods bassist Kevin Morby doesn't need words to tell a story on his lastest solo track, the stripped-down "We Did It All Wrong." The Kansas City native's instrumental begins with slow, melancholy strumming before the tempo speeds up to do away with the heartache. After a brief pause, Morby starts over with his warm, upbeat acoustic guitar as subtle strings resonate in the background.

  • Hear Christopher Denny Triumph Over His Past in 'Watch Me Shine'

    Hear Christopher Denny Triumph Over His Past in 'Watch Me Shine'

    It's been nearly seven years since Little Rock native Christopher Denny released his debut album, Age Old Hunger. In that span of time, the heart-on-the-sleeve country singer has had his lows, struggling with addiction and an earlier, failed attempt at making a second record. Now clean, Denny returns with the jubilant "Watch Me Shine," taken from his sophomore LP, If the Roses Don't Kill Us, which will be released on August 5 via Partisan Records.He told Fader that the lyrics were "just about some of the more fucked-up times in my life," but Denny's resonant voice shimmers with defiant, positive energy, buoyed by warm guitar strumming and intermittent piano. Check out Christopher Denny's "Watch Me Shine" below, and pre-order If the Roses Don't Kill Us at Partisan Records or iTunes.

    7 Albums to Stream: Aaron Freeman, White Fence, La Roux, and More

    To celebrate the end of yet another work week, we've rounded up a new batch of albums for your streaming pleasure. Grab a pair of headphones, scroll down, and dive into the latest releases from Aaron Freeman (formerly known as Gene Ween), White Fence, La Roux, and more. 1) Aaron Freeman, Freeman. "In some ways, Freeman is a continuation of Ween, but with additional mainstream appeal. (Think Paul McCartney post-Beatles.) The album delivers artful songcraft with subtly offbeat hooks; it's lush contemporary pop for fans of classic rock. While the 14-track full-length contains charming phrases for the masses, die-hard Ween fans can still enjoy quirky experimentalism via 'El Shaddai' or the mind-warping psychedelia of 'Golden Monkey.'" (via SPIN)2) White Fence, For the Recently Found Innocent.

  • Roses

    Roses Deliver Shimmering New Wave on 'It's Over'

    If emerging Los Angeles trio Roses' new song "It's Over" indicates what's in store for their first EP, Dreamlover is certainly a fitting title for the record. The whimsical track calls to mind '80s New Wave, with sprawling guitars, shimmering synths, and frontman Marc Steinberg's mellow vocals. The ethereal outfit's sound also matches the sonic evolution of guitarist Juan Velasquez, whose previous band Abe Vigoda shook off their tropical punk roots in favor of a more conventional darkwave sound on their last LP. Alex DeGroot, engineer for synth-pop outfit Zola Jesus, recorded Roses' debut effort.The Dreamlover EP will be released on August 5 via Group Tightener, but in the meantime, listen to "It's Over" below.

  • Robin Thicke

    7 Albums to Stream: Robin Thicke, Judas Priest, Braid, and More

    Happy Fourth of July! Kick off the holiday weekend by streaming new records from Robin Thicke, Judas Priest, Antemasque, and more. Find links and details below.1) Robin Thicke, Paula. "The LP is his latest ploy to win back his estranged wife Paula Patton, and, if you ask us, a potential publicity stunt engineered to sell loads of records. The cover features a melancholy Thicke with his eyes cast down, and the song names don't pull any punches — 'Get Her Back,' the number he performed at the Billboard Music Awards last week, is joined by titles like 'Love Can Grow Back,' 'Forever Love,' and 'Too Little Too Late.'" – SPIN (via USA Today)2) Judas Priest, Redeemer of Souls. "Guitarist Glenn Tipton told fans not to expect wild experimentation. 'Sometimes in the past we may have come under fire for being too adventurous musically – so we have listened,' he said.

  • Zeds Dead

    Zeds Dead and Perry Farrell Collaborate on Paranoid Dubstep Burner 'Blink'

    Zeds Dead have enlisted Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell for their new slow burner of a track, "Blink." At a glance, the partnership might seem unlikely, but Farrell has shown his affinity for EDM, even remixing house legend Matthew Herbert."Blink" appears on the Toronto duo's new Somewhere Else EP and begins with Farrell's subdued crooning backed by sparse synths before giving way to an earth-shattering drop. The record also includes the disco-infused collaboration with Twin Shadow and D'Angelo Lacy, "Lost You." Check out the new cut below and preorder the EP, which will be released tomorrow, at Mad Decent. You can also catch Zeds Dead at select dates during this summer's Mad Decent Block Party tour.
