STREAM: How To Dress Well- What Is This Heart?
Get a box of tissues and lay into the new LP by Tom Krell. It’s a contemporary RnB masterpiece and it feels like his most complete record yet. He pulls in sounds from all over the place, using decadent orchestral strings alongside ‘90s nostalgia-inducing beats. It’ll tug at your heart strings but will also allow the occasional groove-off. Have a listen before it’s released in Australia tomorrow.
WATCH: Warpaint’s full Bonnaroo set
If you were at Bonnaroo in Tennessee over the weekend then you have our undivided jealousy, if you weren’t then you can join us in being couch appreciators. YouTube has deleted most of the full set videos but Warpaint’s has remained. It’s odd to watch them in the full light of day and without the festival atmosphere surrounding, but there’s no doubt they rate 100 on the cool scale and can shred guitar like no other girls.
DOWNLOAD: LPLX- STNR
Lapalux clearly doesn’t like vowels as of late. His track, the Young Thug-sampling DNY GLVR also left out it’s O’s and E’s and it’s no different with his Young Thug remix, STNR. Lapalux keeps it true to the hip-hop genre adding some thumping bass and cascading percussion. Get it fresh, get it free.
WATCH: DJ Rashad + DJ Spinn: Teklife in Monterrey (Documentary)
DJ Rashad tragically died earlier this year but before he passed Pitchfork went to Mexico to film a short documentary about a weekend in the life of the Chicago DJ and his fellow producer, DJ Spinn. The black and white affair is an interesting but ultimately bittersweet watch. There’s plenty of weed, alcohol and a few beats at DIY music-festival NRMAL.
STREAM: Kaskade releases free album ‘The Calm’
The Santa Clause of Deep House has now gifted us with his 2006 album The Calm; the third installment in a series of releases from his YouTube channel. Labelled as one of his more ‘difficult collections to get your hands on’ by none other but Kaskade himself, this stream is sure to take you right back to yesteryear, when lockouts weren’t a thing and you had to actually pay for music. Featuring songs Soft Upon the Lips and Wink of an Eye, let Kaskade take you away to a simpler time (and don’t forget to check out his other album offerings). Merry Christmas.
WATCH: Miley Cyrus Bangerz Tour bootleg
In celebration of this loveable country gal coming down-under we’ve found a bootleg of a full show on YouTube. Yes, it’s a little bit of a shotty filming job but not even a camera phone can miss the giant hotdog. Once you’re done watching you can bet on whether or not she will be deported from the country or whether she will spray-paint a wall. See, you could make money out of Throwaway Thursdays this week.
