Will Brennan & Madeaux
Wait One Second
It’s the Friday right before Holiday break, which means it’s as appropriate a time as ever to just chill out and relax. What am I saying? I’m really just searching for any excuse to bump this new track from Will Brennan and Madeaux. “Wait One Second” seems like a perfect team up between the talented pair, with the South Florida emcee lacing the dense, sirenic instrumental with a confident swagger and provocative lyrics. We haven’t featured Madeaux at all in the past, but after checking out his SoundCloud, that’s certainly bound to change moving forward. Stream the single above, and make sure to grab a free download to keep this one in your rotation.
We’ve been all ears on deck since debuting AYER, the independent musical melding of vocalist Danny Schmittler and producer Mickey Valen of NOOSA acclaim back in October. “YOUNG” the second single released from AYER‘s forthcoming debut EP, takes its form behind a synth progression plucked right out of a John Hughes movie, and a low end that had this writer melting all over. There is a heavy sense of emotion contained within AYER’s music, evoking shades of being in love, slight melancholia, inspirative instrumentation and it just downright oozes sexiness. As we approach the weekend, we wear a large grin knowing that as a free download “YOUNG” will be many a weapon of seduction in the coming days. Make it yours.
Pot of Gold (Prod. Blended Babies)
It’s been a minute since we last heard from college rapper Asher Roth, but the young spitter graces the interwebs to drop off a new track for our listening enjoyment. His new single, “Pot of Gold,” is a signature chill track that echoes the sound Roth has been experimenting with for the past few releases.
The laidback mood and wavy Blended Babies production fit well with Roth’s mellow flow. It seems as if he’s more on the serious side or may have just recorded this track after waking up with a vicious hangover from partying the night before. Irregardless, this track is a subtle listen. Be sure to stay on the lookout for his upcoming, long-delayed sophomore project RetroHash, dropping January 7th.
The Devil Is A Lie (Feat. Jay Z)
Despite whatever your feelings may be about Rick Ross and his MMG collective, you have to admit that he knows how to craft a hit, even if his recent efforts have fallen a bit short. Whenever Rozay and Hov team up though, we’re almost guaranteed a certified banger, and that’s exactly what we have with “The Devil Is A Lie.” This soulful trap joint features both emcees at their finest, with Ross deploying his verses with his usual swagger, and Jay Z adopting a flow that sounds eerily similar to Drake a la “Worst Behavior.” The real winner here though is that instrumental from K.E. On The Track, and you can learn more about the process that went behind the track from the producer himself below.
The guitar driven indie pop project COOPER is the newest project from Kate Cooper, and it’s a real gem. The latest tune from this Australian indie rocker features an anthemic feel that calls on associations of Tegan and Sarah (whose producer is working on the project) and folk rock artists such as Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers.
“Flood” is a foot-stomping journey that beckons you to grab a guitar and play along with it. Its infectious in its drum-centric nature, making you press play again and again.
