Future Honest Details
Mar 10, 2014 12:52pm | StereoGum
We’ve been feverishly anticipating Future’s sophomore album Honest for well over a year now, since those glorious late 2012 days when it was going to be called Future Hendrix. Now, after its initial November release date was pushed back indefinitely, the album finally has an official release date and tracklist.
15 Rising Bands To See At SXSW
Mar 10, 2014 12:50pm | CMJ
With a cold Lone Star in hand, we trudge forward toward a sleepless week of the all-music-all-the-time schmoozefest that is SXSW. While navigating Sixth Street is enough of a challenge in itself, plus meeting up with friends who have flown in from all over the globe, catching the most interesting new acts remains our modus operandi. Bands of varying levels of noteriety are funneling into Austin by the minute. But we love nothing more than catching an artist that’s catching their moment in a small venue. Sure that keynote with Lady Gaga will be neat, but those who caught her at her 2008 CMJ showcase at the Highline were in for a bigger treat. There are tons of great artists on this year’s giant SXSW bill. Lovers of finding the diamonds in the rough as we are, we’ve highlighted 15 up-and-comers (okay, 14 newbies and one old-time favorite) to catch between the free breakfast burritos and booze.
It’s going to be a sweat-and-sun week, so get your dose of
reverby jangle pop, Ray-Bans and cutoff-style, along with that
Lorde may have all the press, but New Zealand has long been
pumping out glorious rock of the indie variety. The dreamy vocal
coos and splashing wall of sound of kiwi outfit, Broods, is a
must-hear charmer of the week.

Wonky pop newcomer Tirzah returns with No Romance EP for Greco-Roman stream the title track
Mar 10, 2014 12:46pm | Fact Magazine
The scruffy pop newcomer follows up last year’s ace ‘I’m Not Dancing’.
London-based singer Tirzah was introduced in 2012 by way of her pal and producer Mica Levi, aka Micachu, who dropped the wonky pop number ‘I’m Not Dancing’ during her Boiler Room DJ set.
An EP of the same name followed on Greco-Roman in 2013 and laid the groundwork for the singer’s appealingly unpolished style, built on bare, soulful vocals and shuffling DIY beats (courtesy of Micachu’s ear for an unlikely sample).
Tirzah returns to Greco-Roman on April 21 with a five-track EP titled No Romance, which she and Micachu describe as their “emo” record.
Dummy have got the premiere of the title track hear it here and see the artwork and tracklist below.

Watch: LIFE Money
Mar 10, 2014 12:45pm | The Line Of Best Fit
LIFE are well on their way to making a name for themselves as one of the country’s most exciting new acts. Cue their latest single, “Money”, a stellar song that’s certain to leave you satisfied.
Channeling The Strokes through a Skaters-esque veneer, LIFE place themselves within a category of bands that have become known as ‘skate punk’. Short-but-sweet explosive songs, catchy choruses, and sprawling guitar riffs are all to be expected.
What makes LIFE stand out from their contemporaries is their youthful vigour. There’s an energy and an enjoyment here that seems too honest to be forced, and proves all to easy to fall for.
“Money” boasts a dynamic bassline and a driving drumbeat you can hardly resist dancing to. Mez Sanders-Green’s vocals switch between a smooth croon and a boisterous quirk, sweet-talking you along bounding rhythms and resounding riffs into a state of contented appreciation. No complaints here.
“Money/Crawling” will be released as a double a-side via Birthday Records on 17 March.
They play the following dates:
11 March The Sesh (Free), HULL
Listen: Jay Electronica pays homage to The Notorious B.I.G. with In The System
Mar 10, 2014 12:33pm | Cosequence Of Sound
We haven’t heard much from Jay Electronica since he lent a verse to Big Sean’s “Control”, but today the reclusive emcee returns to pay homage to The Notorious B.I.G. (Yesterday marked the 17th anniversary of the rapper’s death.)
Electronica’s teamed with producer J. Period for “In the System”, a remix of Biggie’s Life After Death standout “Niggas Bleed”. Here, Period flips the track on its head, infusing the classical piano loop and thudding bass with random lyrical tidbits from Jay Z’s “What More Can I Say” and “I Just Wanna Love U”. The nostalgia-laden beat is the perfect accompaniment for Electronica, whose verse mixes references to classic Biggie lyrics with Biggie-esque wordplay about life on the streets. Listen in below (via HipHopDX).
“In The System” is part of a larger Biggie tribute from Period entitled #MARCH9REVISITED Remix Project, featuring a “non-stop collection of remixes over new and classic instrumentals” from Hov, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, 2 Chainz, Busta Rhymes, and more. Stream and/or download it here.

The Atlanta rapper readies the follow-up to Pluto.
On Friday, Future took to Instagram to share the cover to Honest one ninth at a time. While it looks like drip-feed press campaigns are here to stay, at least we have more information on the Autotune addict’s latest album, which is now due out on April 22.
Honest is executive produced by Future’s go-to-beatsmith Mike Will Made and is said to feature Kanye West, Drake, Nicki Minaj and more. Future’s crew-heavy single ‘Move That Dope’ just received a video and an 80s-styled video game.
Update: The tracklist has been revealed as well. As rumored, Drake and Kanye made the cut (Nicki didn’t), with Andre 3000, Young Scooter and Wiz Khalifa also featured. [via P4K]

Song : Jarbird : Such is the House
Mar 10, 2014 12:28pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
Jarbird is a brand new five-piece that just came on our radar calling London home. Their debut song is titled “Such is the House” that has an official release as a single slated for next month. On the song, vocalists Ric Hollinberry and Lana Verney croon out the lyrics in soulful falsettos over intricate musicianship that holds a lot of similarities to Dirty Projectors. We have math rock, maybe this could be called math R&B? No matter how you wish to describe it, it has us wanting more. Listen below.

MOKB Premiere : Night Panther : I Want You To Know
Mar 10, 2014 12:12pm | My Old Kentucky Blog
The self-dubbed sex pop group Night Panther hailing from Doylestown, PA have a new three-song EP, KISS, they are giving away. The release continues the trio’s trajectory of feel good vibes that could be categorized as nu-yacht rock. It comes just in time as the sun slowly starts to creep through the cold winter clouds that have been hanging over much of the States the last few months.
The song we have from it is the upbeat and carefree “I Want You To Know.” When we hear it, we begin to think of all of those less-than-serious movies that littered the ’80s like Mannequin, Weekend at Bernie’s, and so on. That is the best thing about Night Panther, they make great hook-laden indie-pop that doesn’t take itself too seriously. You can stream the track below and the full EP here. Also, for those in or around Philly, the band will be having a residency at Bourban & Branch (see flyer below). So be sure to check that out.

Watch TDE signee SZA commit suicide by creek in Babylon
Mar 10, 2014 12:00pm | Chart Attack
SZA is saying goodbye to her old life in “Babylon,” the video for a gloriously weathered, bruised soul track. What initially seems like a remake of Ophelia is likely just the L.A. singer peacing out of an existence where she wasn’t signed to TDE with a new album out this spring. Suicide is painless, especially when you’re saying goodbye to a not-signed-to-Kendrick-Lamar‘s-label kind of life.
SZA’s new album Z is out April 8th via Top Dawg Entertainment/Interscope.
