New Music // Major Lazer – Get Free

27 Aug
Get Free is the first track released from the upcoming sophomore album from Major Lazer, the Jamaican dancehall inspired side project from producer Diplo.
I can’t say I care too much for the first Major Lazer release, but this new track is stunning. Diplo’s downtempo groove coupled with Amber Coffman’s (from Dirty Projectors) beautiful lyrics and voice come together in what’s sure to be one of the best tracks of 2012.

New Music // Crystal Castles – Plague

18 Aug

Crystal Castles are on the verge of releasing their third album, no album title or release date as of yet, and they’ve unceremoniously dropped a new track, Plague, that we can only guess will be a part of it.

Love them or hate them, you can’t deny this bands sincerity. They’ve remained uncompromising with their sound, their style, their live shows, and their approach to fame.

While listening to Plague you just know Alice Glass truly feels what she’s singing, to her core. She has pain, and anger, and she lays these emotions bare for all to hear. She is a genuine rock star, both wonderful and terrifying to behold.
