  • Kid Cudi Talks 'Indicud' Details, Promises Guest Spots from RZA, Kendrick Lamar and Too Short

    Earlier this year, G.O.O.D. Music crooner Kid Cudi promised that his long-awaited Indicud album would finally see a release on April 23, but the details surrounding the set are still relatively vague. Now, he's offered some more details from the record. Though he had originally hoped to get Jay-Z, Diplo, 50 Cent and Ratatat in on the action, he doesn't confirm or deny their appearances on the record during a new Billboard interview. He does promise, however, that the album will include guest slots from RZA, Too Short, Kendrick Lamar and, most likely, A$AP Rocky. ...Read More

  • Report: El-P's Cancer for Cure Record Release Show

    Last night was a big one for El-P. After emerging from the kind of semi-exile that swallows lesser rappers whole following 2007's I'll Sleep When You're Dead, El released two of the year's best rap albums, in two consecutive weeks: the incendiary Killer Mike record R.A.P. Music, which he produced entirely, and his own majestically gloomy fourth album Cancer for Cure. He is in the giddy flush of a late-career resurgence, and at Santos Party House, he gathered everyone responsible for the moment together.

  • New music: Bjork – Crystalline (Current Value remix)

    Wondering what Crystalline sounds like with a gargantuan drum'n'bassy beat shoved underneath it? Wonder no longer

    If there are two things Bjork likes, they are remixes and fancy packaging. Throughout her career, she's had her songs reworked by everyone from RZA to Patrick Wolf, Switch to Beck, and Ratatat to Alec Empire. Each remix has been housed either as part of a 3-CD set ("back in the day") or on heavy-weight vinyl, as with the singles from 2007's Volta album.

  • New music: WZRDZ – Break

    Kid Cudi promises to 'bring punk rock back with a whole energy and sound' with his new band. Has he managed it?

    It seems rapper Kid Cudi is restless when it comes to the music he makes and the people he works with. His first album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, featured collaborations with Kanye and Common, but also New York instrumentalists Ratatat and MGMT, while the follow-up, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr Rager, featured production from the Smeezingtons (with Bruno Mars) alongside a track called Maniac, an oddly affecting collaboration with St Vincent. Teaming up with producer Dot Da Genius – who he worked with on his biggest hit to date, Day N Night (Nightmare) – Cudi has decided to start a band he hopes will "bring punk rock back with a whole energy and sound". The first fruits of their…

  • Justice – “Helix”

    “Helix,” the Audio, Video, Disco cut you’ve spent an entire 15 seconds with so far, is now a fully formed song available for your stream. It’s an ebullient serving of cut-and-paste digital funk with guitars that honor Ratatat and a chopped-up vocal sample that bobs like Billy Ocean poured into a blender on pulse. Stream [...]
