Dungeonesse is the new project of Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner and multi-instrumentalist Jon Ehrens. Along with news of their self-titled debut album, the duo have also released this fresh, fresh single called “Shucks”. It’s a velvety, addictive treat that features some Grade A genes from the electronica + soul + pop genres. As the track plays on, rocking side to side with an air of cool and confidence, and Wasner’s breathy, sensual vocals take charge — “I wanna hear your heartbeat, my love” — it’s really difficult not to want to put this on repeat for at least a few hours. I’m officially very excited for more material.
Dungeonesse’s self-titled debut album drops May 14th via Secretly Canadian.
Jon Connor has consistently been one of the hardest working emcees in the game, constantly releasing quality music seemingly just for the hell of it. On this dope new single, the Flint, Michigan native boasts about the many luxuries of life on the road as a talented young emcee. Although Connor puts together an energetic performance on the mic, he still does a phenomenal job of creating a chill atmosphere. This is mainly due to the sampling of Röyksopp‘s “Remind Me,” which most of you will probably recognize from one of those old school GEICO caveman commercials. With no word on where this one will land, we’ll just have to enjoy this free download for now.
A little while back, we posted the smile-inducing infectious indie rock tune from Birmingham quartet, Swim Deep. Well the feel good popsters have released their video directed by Dan Brereton. The fun, dancy tune has been given a 1990′s feel in this interpretation. This may age us by saying this, but we often yearn for the days spent traversing our local mall. Well, Swim Deep has brought back those adolescent memories with this entertaining video.
If you get a chance, make sure to catch these guys with Two Door Cinema Club before heading out on their own tour, and landing at SXSW. “The Sea” is out March 4th on Chess Club / RCA Victor.
The often quirky, retro, lo-fi vocals of BETS are anything but conventional. With that being said, this lazy and wandering indie rock tune is rather infectious. At first listen, this track from the bicoastal singer songwriter made us grin a little. Then after a few times over, her unique tone and catchy hooks had us craving more. Now, we just simply can’t help but listen to this track over and over again.
This self-titled debut EP is now available for purchase. Click the song below, then head over to itunes when you’re ready to buy.
Today we’re featuring an incredible re-work of Baauer‘s track “Dum Dum” from Steven V. Remixing anything from Baauer is no easy task, because the production level is always so clean. Steven V takes a safe route, tweaking each drop while still staying true to the original. Both of drops are equally as satisfying allowing you to fall in love with this massive tune all over again. Cheers

Both fresh off of solid projects, young emcees Casey Veggiesand Rockie Fresh team up for a new track, appropriately titled “Energy,” celebrating their early success. Over a bright, oscillating instrumental, the Veggies and Fresh, from LA and Chi-town respectively, both show off their individual styles while cultivating the type of excitement that surrounds rising stars. Listen and download this dope collaboration below.

“24K of Gold” was just one of many highlights on Big Sean‘s excellent Detroitmixtape. Now Sean’s go-to producer, Key Wane, has released the remix featuring none other than The Chef, Raekwon. The Wu-Tang affiliate blesses the track with his usual abrasive yet eloquent flow, while Big Sean and J. Cole lock things down on the front end of the track. This little gem can be found on Key Wane’s new mixtape, So Many Keys, which features a myriad of songs he’s produced over the last year.
