[NEW] M.I.A. – Bring The Noize


M.I.A. returns to the scene the only way she knows how, with a brash, blaring in-your-face new single, “Bring The Noize.” Paying tribute to the Public Enemy classic, Maya told Zane Lowe of BBC Radio 1 that the single is “coming out at a time where I think in America it’s kinda cool to hear something like this,” likely referencing the recent debacles involving the NSA and Edward Snowden. There’s no word on when M.I.A.’s fourth studio album, Matangi, will finally come out, but it’s pretty clear that she’s getting frustrated with the entire process right now, “It’s just one of those things where I’ve given up at this point. I was literally going to start putting out records from my bedroom. This was my last stab at it– I’m going to hand it in and wait for it to go out the way albums go out. If I didn’t get it out right now, I would’ve definitely exploded.” She also went on to mention that the album had been rejected for being “too positive,” whatever that means. Either way, we hope we get a chance to hear the album in its final form, through whichever delivery method she finally settles on.

[TMN Premiere] Carousel – Dancing On My Own (Robyn Cover)

Dancing On My Own (Robyn Cover)

Mondays are likely not the most exciting of days for many of our Ninja contingent out there in the blogosphere, but today’s exclusive premiere should hopefully pull a childish smile and a hip-wiggle out of your afternoon. Over the last few years, L.A. stationed “Happy-Dance” duo and TMN favorites Carousel have become a live act that hasn’t been missed once by some form of your Music Ninja squad in Denver, and one that even warranted an elated event review for their last jaunt out here with Mansions on the Moon. On that note, if you have found yourself fortunate enough to capture one of their intimate sets, then no doubt one of our favorite staples in their live diet – the duo’s synth-pop take on Robyn’s smash single “Dancing On My Own” – was happily consumed by an entranced audience. At least that is the effect it had on us. Jackson Philips’ smooth vocals and deft touch on an intimidating synthesizer sets this emotive pacesetter off, while Kevin Friedman’s sprightly guitar licks add another layer of depth only Carousel could add to a fun, but quite honestly vapid pop single. The Robyn cover has been begging to be recorded and released, so it was akin to an early birthday present when this gem was waiting for us this morning. Carousel’s version of “Dancing on My Own” could be played for an hour straight on our in house monitors and I don’t think many of us would have an inkling of a problem with that…. so you should maybe do the same. Check it out above and as always, let us know how this one strikes your fancy.

[Hip-Hop] Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Stay At Home Dad

Macklemore X Ryan Lewis
Stay At Home Dad

In honor of Father’s Day, Macklemore decided to revive this hilarious ode to all the “Stay At Home Dads” out there. Conceived back in 2010, the track is meant to make light of certain gender roles and stigma surrounding dads who choose to take care of the kids and handle the chores around the house while the wife is out making all the bread. The song gives us a glimpse of what life for Mack might’ve been like if he never made it big. Thankfully for us though, everything worked out for him, meaning he won’t have to be concerned about how many bagels to toast for his wife in the morning. Check out the goofy track above, and make sure to grab a free download for yourself as well.

[NEW] Kanye West – I Am A God (Prod. Daft Punk)

Kanye West
I Am A God

As I’m sure you already know by now, Kanye West’s Yeezus has experienced a case of the leaks. Depending on how you look at it, that’s either a triumph for the internet or a failure for Ye. Yeezy’s been heralded as one of the most paranoid, tight-lipped artists’ out there, taking every measure to prevent his album from leaking, even going so far as to ensure that there would be no pre-order streams to get hacked into. Despite all his efforts though, the album wasn’t able to release on his own terms. Much mystery still remains around the album, with an official tracklist yet to be revealed. While we won’t be sharing the leak with you, I’m sure you can do some digging to easily find a copy on your own. Instead, we’re providing you with a chance to hear one of the album’s most talked about tracks, “I Am A God” which according to sources was produced by Daft Punk–one of the few artists to cause this much hysteria around the release of their album earlier this year. Check out the supposed final tracklist–including credits–below, and make sure to grab a copy of Yeezus when it officially drops on June 18th.  Continue reading

Bastille – Pompeii (Rise & Fool Remix)

Pompeii (Rise & Fool Remix)

French House and Nu-Disco purveyors Rise & Fool, who like to be simply listed as “a boy and girl making music”, dropped their latest track to us and quite honestly it had our heads unconsciously shaking like a cheap bobblehead.  Countless remixers have plied their sound unto Bastille’s “Pompeii”, but it took a pair of fellow Europeans to pull the disco out of it, and their execution was spot-on. While not an officially licensed remix, Rise & Fool just wanted the chance to throw the cut into their DJ sets, while maintaining much of the original’s musical integrity and for us, they hit the nail right on the head. After a slow-burning build, we are taken into four-to-the-floor drum kick territory complete with echoing synths and a slight reverb added to the vocal track to finish it out nicely.  As an even greater treat to our DJ contingent out there in cyberspace, they’re giving the 320 away as a free download, so do please take advantage and show a little support to the artistic community. Grab and stream Rise & Fool’s remix of Bastille’s “Pompeii” above.
