Ashtrays and Heartbreaks ft. Miley Cyrus
File this under: “Holy crap, did this just happen?” To answer you: Yes, yes it did. What’s your take on this…interesting collaboration? Let us know in the comments!
Just in case you’re by your computer right now (well, duh, you’re reading this), tune into the LIVE stream of Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ forthcoming album, Mosquito, this very moment HERE . The “listening party” is courtesy of Noisey. The LP officially drops April 16th via Interscope.
You should all get hip to the name Valentina. The Italian-English artist — who previously collab’d with Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard — will soon put out her own Wolves EP (out April 18th via Greco-Roman) and, judging by this track “Ladders”, it’s going to be full of weightless, elegant electro pop. The latest cut, with its slowly-swaying, sweet chorus and breathy, curling vocals, is an instant charmer. Listen to it below, along with her previously released single “Wolves”.
Sad to say this is no April fools joke as another month comes to a close and April begins we have to say goodbye to another amazing artist. Bass Kleph has kept our ears entertained and our music love growing this past month and we hate to see him go but we love to see what he has in store for the next year. Cheers mate for amazing month! And of course he couldn’t just leave us with five songs that he is digging right now, no, BK threw in an extra song as we roll along into April. Have a listen and enjoy the sound that is Bass Kleph.

Medicine (The Chainsmokers Remix)
By now you know how enraptured we are by London’s folk rock trio Daughter, but did you know we also have a soft spot for New York electronic duo The Chainsmokers? We’ve featured a number of their remixes in the past, but this one, “Medicine”, is especially breathtaking as it features both artists. Listen to it above, and below, the remixing pair share a few words about the rework:
“We heard this song on a depressing cold winter day in NYC (it can get pretty bad) but as soon as we heard the haunting voice of Elena from Daughter and the bands equally incredible wallowing piano chords, we didn’t necessarily feel happier, but we fell in love with the song and knew we had to try give our Chainsmokers touch to it without ruining the already beautiful song.”
