[Get Crunk] Friday Party Playlist Vol. 113

fpp

After a major scare this morning, I thought my entire life had just been washed down the drain. In other words, I thought I lost my cat but in all reality she was just being her typical cat self and ignored my desperate call for attention. Now that that’s out of the way, I can finally focus on getting all of you ninjas ready for the ultimate turn up this weekend.

With the Summer vibes in full force, the music seems to be getting hotter and hotter as the season progresses. I’m worried we might melt into the Earth’s core by the time we survive this heat wave and I blame it all on the music that’s been coming out these days. I have been doing my best to provide all of you with more and more F-I-R-E each and every Friday to help satisfy that burning desire to rage your asses off for 3 days straight.

I sure hope you can stand the heat for a little bit longer, otherwise you might want to stock up on some SPF so you don’t burn your face off. Seriously, go put some sunscreen on because this playlist is equivalent to a third degree burn.

Until next Friday, ninjas. #danceirresponsibly

altj-600-1403711676

English indie trio alt-J have released a new music video for their single “Hunger Of The Pine” not unlike a nightmare most of us have had before. With a barrage of inescapable arrows chasing after him, the unfortunate soul in the video frantically and determinedly sprints through the forest in a desperate fight for his life while Joe Newman’s chilling voice coos.

Along with “Left Hand Free,” this Miley Cyrus sample laden track is another preview of alt-J’s forthcoming album, This Is All Yours, which is slated for release on September 22 in the US via Canvasback / Infectious Music. Check out the video and tour schedule below.

[Alternative/Rock] Cold War Kids – All This Could be Yours

coldwarkids
Cold War Kids
All This Could Be Yours

It seems Cold War Kids are in a giving mood; not even a month after frontman Nathan Willett and bassist Matt Maust released Is Exotic Bait, the debut album from their side-project French Style Furs, the Kids have revealed new single “All This Could Be Yours” to the world along with the announcement of new tour dates and an as-of-yet unnamed LP on Downtown Records this October.

The forthcoming record will be a surprisingly early addition to what has been a period of high productivity for the LA artists, with the full band’s last LP, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts, coming out only little over a year ago, followed by the EP Tuxedos last fall, and one-off single “A Million Eyes” in March.

The new album will be Cold War Kids’ fifth overall, but the first with what appears to be a new lineup following reports that drummer Matthew Aviero has been replaced by Joe Plummer, who, along with guitarist Dann Gallucci, is best known for his tenure with indie rock classics Modest Mouse, in addition to work with The Shins, Mister Heavenly, and more.

The single itself kicks off with a piano riff just as last summer’s “Miracle Mile” did, followed by Willett’s signature vocals at their most piercing and a marching pulse of percussion from Plummer. A catchy track, “All This” further pushes the boundary of anthemic pop-ness for the band, leaving fans to wonder just would could be theirs come October.

TOUR DATES

07/20 – Chicago, IL @ Rock N Roll Half Marathon
07/26 – Tulsa, OK @ The Center Of The Universe
08/29-31 – Columbus, OH @ Fashion Meets Music Festival

[R&B] Jhené Aiko – The Pressure

Jhene Aiko
The Pressure

After a breakout year in which she toured the world with Drake, found herself featured on seemingly every top rap album, and culminated with the release of her remarkable Sail Out EP, it seems as if Jhené Aiko is primed to make even bigger moves in 2014. Now, as she gears up for the release of her debut album, Souled Out, it’s time to find out if the 26 year old songstress is ready to handle “The Pressure” associated with her newfound stardom.

Premiered earlier today on Vogue, Jhene’s latest single serves as a stress reliever of sorts, as she vents about some of the issues currently ailing her the best way she knows how–through gorgeous melodies constructed with her confectionery sweet vocals and breezy Fisticuffs production. As always, the writing is completely on point, striking a cool balance of meaningful, candid and relatable lyrics, with the highlight being, “Have you seen my fucks to give? I have none, I cannot live with the pressure.”

I caught myself zoning out more than a couple times in the middle of this write-up, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself getting lost in this one, of course followed by you scrambling to hit the replay button once it’s finished. Check out the single above, and make sure to grab a copy of Souled Out when it hits shelves in September.

[NEW] Jeremih & Shlohmo – No More (EP)

jeremih-shlohmo-no-more-ep

After announcing the project late last year, Jeremih & Shlohmo took to the net today to finally drop their highly anticipated EP, titled No More. Although initially slated for release back in February, some issues between WeDidIt and Def Jam prevented the album from seeing the light of day, leaving its status in limbo (and perhaps inspiring the above artwork). With the label problems still left unresolved, the two decided to take matters into their own hands, releasing the entire EP for free in honor of Jeremih’s birthday.

Since first teaming up for the single “Bo Peep (Do U Right)” as part of Yours Truly Adidas Songs From Scratch series last year, the pair have been a perfect match, with Jeremih’s smooth, enticing vocals melding beautifully with Shlohmo’s hazy, lo-fi electronic production. The duo bring back many of those same elements on this EP, which features previous singles like “Bo Peep,” “No More,” and an extended version of “Fuck You All the Time (Remix),” as well as fresh new material that even includes a brand new track with fellow Chicagoan, Chance The Rapper. Although short at only six tracks in length, the project does a great job of keeping things interesting, with each song sounding fresh and unique enough to stand out on its own, while still coming together to form a cohesive whole that seems like it was thoughtfully placed together. After a few listens, this is already one of our favorite projects of the summer, and a guaranteed must download.

[Indie/Synth-Pop] Mansions on the Moon – Don’t Tell

motm
Mansions On The Moon
Don't Tell

If you’ve scrolled the pages of TMN regularly over the past few years, you may have realized that we absolutely adore most everything from alt-pop purveyors Mansions on the Moon. From their excellent Full Moon EP last year, which was championed around the TMN office as the year’s choice extended play by more than one staffer, all the way back to their first ever mixtape produced by Diplo & Benzi and everything in between; it’s safe to say we’ve been hooked on their uniquely sophisticated sound for years. Today, Ted Wendler, Ben Hazlegrove, Lane Shaw and Jeff Maccora are back with their first single in almost an entire calendar year, “Don’t Tell” and as with every passing album, we’re offered a slight shift in instrumental focus with all of the careful execution we’ve come to expect from the So-Cal troupe. Fueled by a punchy kickdrum before diving into an irresistible synth pattern and Wendler’s reverb soaked angelic refrain; “Don’t Tell” plays like just as much rooftop pop anthem as it does disco and funk fueled club number; striking a delicate balance between pop sensibilties & structure and expert musicianship. As if we weren’t already excited by this one, the real icing on the cake is that it is the lead single from an impending debut, self-titled Long Player due out on October 22, which we have been drooling for like one of Pavlov’s canines since our first taste of Mansions. About the forthcoming LP the band this to say: “The name, “Mansions On The Moon,” comes from the concept of turning a dream into reality, which for us, means making the best music we can possibly create. After countless studio sessions, nights of crashing on friends’ couches, and bus rides to mixing sessions – our Mansion On The Moon is here.” Keep your eyes on us as we’ll be following every single leading up to the LP’s official release, but until then, enjoy “Don’t Tell” above.
