It’s raining here in Massachusetts but I forgot all about the dreary weather once I pressed play on this new song from Washed Out. “It All Feels Right” is more of the same from Ernest Greene in the sense that it’s a laid-back chillwave track meant to make the listener feel good, but he manages [...]
HAIM stopped by Letterman last night to perform their fantastic single “Forever.” The sisters are currently playing the festival circuit so be sure to catch them if you’re going to Bonnaroo or Firefly. Also, keep an eye out for their debut album which will be dropping this fall.
More Ty Dolla $ign for you on this beautiful Thursday night. This time the Californian is joined by Wiz Khalifa, and while the pairing sounds good in theory I’m not so sure it works here. Listen to the track below and decide for yourself. Ty Dolla’s Beach Hou$e 2 will be out on July 1.
Brooklyn rapper OnCue hooked up with The KickDrums for this update of their previously released “Machines,” a track from their recent Inspiration For Conversation EP.

Young Replicant’s video for The xx’s “Fiction” is a slick and stylish take on one of the standout tracks from Coexist. The video features all three members of The xx but focuses on Oliver Sim as he walks through the night. The xx are on tour now so be sure to check the dates here.
I first heard of Iamsu! back when he had a stellar feature on Ty Dolla $ign’s “Young Honey,” and since then the Bay Area rapper has been working on a mixtape called Kilt 2.
