God. This is just bliss. If you’re unfamiliar with Poliça, today is your lucky day. The band, led by sensual vocalist, Channy Leaneagh, put out an excellent debut in 2012. Titled Give You The Ghost, it was the perfect combination of sexy electronica and smooth R&B — I mean, it’s certainly etched a spot in my playlist even after more than a year(!) — leaving many listeners anxious for more. Now, this week we get a new single called “Tiff”, featuring another infallible singer, Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon. By default, it should be damn good…and it totally is. Listen in.

Autumn

Here’s a new track from UK producer Rob McAndrews, aka Airhead, a friend, colleague and James Blake frequent collaborator. Delicate and patient, it pleases and soothes by massaging soft, tender tones of folk and electronica that bubble and bloom just below the surface. “Autumn” is off his forthcoming debut album, For Years, due out in June via R&S Records. Enjoy.

[Indie Rock] Portugal. The Man – Purple Yellow Red and Blue

Purple Yellow Red and Blue

Portugal. The Man has followed up their first single, “Evil Friends“, with a second single that demonstrates a very different musical direction. As opposed to the garage rock style found in “Evil Friends”, “Purple Yellow Red and Blue” shows off a more electronic side of PTM. Coupled with a heavy drum beat and typical falsetto vocals, this makes for a very appealing track and shows the versatility this band has. Every indication points to Evil Friends being a great album, but we’ll just have to wait until June 4th to find out.

[Hip-Hop] J. Cole – Maine on Fire

Fresh off the release of his visual for the hit single “Power Trip,” featuring Miguel, North Carolina native J. Cole leaks a previously unreleased track today. The single titled “Maine on Fire” is a hard-hitting, self-produced track that has the Roc Nation rapper spitting some witty lyrics over an old school beat. Lately, Cole has been on his grind preparing for the release of his sophomore LP, Born Sinner, dropping June 25th, but fans of this nostalgic track can find it on Funk Master Flex’s mixtape, Who You Mad At? Me or Yourself?

[Hip-Hop] Childish Gambino – Think Of Me (Prod. Chemist)

Think of Me (prod. Chemist)

As you’ll soon notice over the next 24 hours, most of the new hip-hop leaks you’ll be hearing will be from Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself?, Funkmaster Flex‘s monstrous new 53 track mixtape. While the tape is already available for streaming through the official Funkmaster Flex app, it hasn’t fully hit the net yet, meaning we’ll have to settle for individual song releases until then. Lucky for us, this new Childish Gambino track managed to slip through the cracks already. While the sound quality leaves something to be desired, the delivery is classic Bino: witty, clever, and poignant. It’s refreshing to finally hear from Childish again, after some radio silence over the last few months. We can only hope that means another project is on the way, although it could just have something to do with that whole acting thing he seems set upon doing.

Be on the lookout for more exclusives from Who You Mad At? Me Or Yourself?, coming your way soon.

The Big Blue

With wavering distorted guitars reminiscent of classic 90′s tunes from the likes of Pearl Jam and the Stone Roses, we are introduced to Sulk for the very first time. This London based five piece has a nostalgic sound that’s truly infectious. A shoegazy blend of Britpop and Psychedelia, Sulk is the perfect soundtrack for a rainy London day, with a pint in one hand and a joint in the other. Lay back in the grass and soak this one in.

This single is out on May 20th via Perfect Sound Forever.
