The younger new artists appear, the more impressive it is to hear how much talent they carry.
Feast your ears on this young 16-year-olds voice who goes by the name of Lorde. She hails from New Zealand and is already getting a hefty following of fans who are captivated by her soft yet strong voice. When I first heard her new hit song “Tennis Court” I found myself hearing a little bit of a young Lana Del Ray in Lorde. The lightness of the lyrics, the playfulness of her tune, both of these carry something similar to Del Ray. But Lorde is unique in her own sound and in her lyrics which speak to every teenager and anyone who has been one. Her big influences are T.S. Eliot, Allan Ginsburg and Sylvia Plath, some deep reading for people of any age. Lorde’s full EP is coming out today, June 10th, and I’m excited to hear what else this talented artist has in store. Enjoy walking down to the tennis courts with this talented NZ musician.

The Rockers ft. Wiz Khalifa
With the release of Action Bronson‘s SAAAB Stories EP right around the corner, he decides to liberate one of the album’s more anticipated singles, “The Rockers” featuring Wiz Khalifa. Just as the title suggests, this laidback tune features Wiz and Bronsolino rocking over some incredibly dope Harry Fraud production. If this track hasn’t convinced you to grab a copy of SAAAB Stories, I don’t know what will. Make sure to pre-order the EP on iTunes before it drop this Tuesday, June 11th.
Oh shit! It’s that time of the week again. Another 40 hours of grueling work has come and gone and it’s time for the weekend. I know that a good portion of you probably don’t read this, so I’ll skip to the good stuff. Crack open a cold one and…

Up (Fell In Love) (Prod. The Mekanics)
After hitting us up with street-wise singles like “Hate Me On The Low” and “Fourteen & 40′s” Tory Lanez slows things down with his latest cut, “Up (Fell In Love). Following in the vein of fellow Canadian Drake, Lanez constantly shifts talents between both rapping and singing throughout the entire emotionally charged track. This brand new bedroom anthem might be the best leak from Tory’s new project so far, and we’re definitely looking forward to what else the Toronto representative has in store for us when Conflicts Of My Soul drops on August 8th.
Have you ever fallen in love with a song immediately after you pressed play? If you’re a constant visitor of this site then of course you have, but this new tune from Freeze-Tag may be the first to predict its fate right in the title. The Cleveland based crooner/beatsmith continues to stretch the boundaries of R&B music, blurring the lines between dream pop and chillwave on this delicate, enchanting melody. Complete with intricate drum patterns, shuffling synths and floating chimes, this song will easily melt away your troubles as you drift off into a lush, euphoric landscape hidden within the depths of your mind. Before you completely disconnect yourself from the rest of the world though, make sure to check out Freeze-Tag’s magnificent Eskimo EP, available for streaming on his SoundCloud page right now.
TRAILS AND WAYS
Como Te Vas
It’s not officially summer until we’ve heard new music from Trails and Ways (well, technically it’s not really summer until June 21st). Last year’s “Nunca” served as one of our favorites of 2012, and we have a feeling “Como Te Vas” will have the same impact on us in 2013. Trails and Ways’ music has always had a way of transporting you off to a distant land, which is due in large part to the influences the band has gained from their own extensive travels in countries like Brazil and Spain. It might also explain the name of the group’s upcoming EP, Trilingual, which is set to drop this Tuesday, June 11th and also includes other outstanding singles like ”Border Crosser” and “Mtn Tune“.
