  • From wedding singer to the world

    A team of poets who write lyrics on the spot and an electronica twist help singer from war-torn Syria go global

    Bank notes rain down on Omar Souleyman. Beautiful women in silk gowns dance around him. Backed by music of hypnotic intricacy, he runs through a series of rabble-rousing party chants. It's a decadent wedding bacchanal, but currently one that's only available on YouTube. Souleyman is now in exile, his native Syria wracked by civil war. "All I want is for it to stop and for everyone to go back to their normal lives," he says. "When I see hungry people, or dead people, it saddens me. Sometimes I no longer feel like singing."

  • Hear a New Earl Sweatshirt Song, "Chum"

    "NU TREATS," Earl Sweatshirt screamed on Twitter before advising onlookers: "my phones been turned off... speak not to me... im leaving twitter now". It's understandable, given the personal and self-reflective nature of the new song, he's posted on Tumblr called "Chum". It's possible it was recorded a long time ago, because it includes the line, "Been back a week and I already feel like calling it quits." He also raps about his relationships with his father and mother, his own aimlessness and his struggle to find a place amongst his peers. Listen above.
