"Humility" by Gorillaz

This past June, Gorillaz released another new album, The Now Now, hot on the heels of Humanz which had won the BRIT Award for Best British Group in February.  Damon Albarn, who left Blur to explore relentless fusions of hip-hop, synth-pop, folk, techno, funk and so much more, conceived this album while on tour in the US.  The virtual band and artwork of Jamie Hewlett is genius, and you're never quite sure where you're going to go with each song, but it's sure to be a sonic adventure!  Check out Humility feat. George Benson! Read More...

"Gratitude" by Big Red Machine

In 2008, The National's Aaron Dessner sent Bon Iver's Justin Vernon an instrumental sketch of a song called "Big Red Machine".  This was before they had met in person.  Justin wrote a song to it, interpreting the Big Red Machine title as a heart.  10 years of friendship later and their band, Big Red Machine, was born.  Each song on their album includes a large number of collaborators via the PEOPLE platform and the record was produced by Justin and Aaron with longtime collaborator Brad Cook primarily at Aaron's studio, Long Pond, in Upper Hudson Valley, NY.  Check out the song, Gratitude!

"The Order" by Apathy

If you listen to a certain brand of Hip Hop, then you are already well aware of Apathy who reigns from Connecticut and reps the Demigodz crew.  Ap's 7th studio album, The Widow's Son, is chock full of brilliant verses, so much so that we'd dare to say he is one of the best lyricists around.  The golden age of hip hop has long been replaced by unauthentic acts and auto-tuning, but it isn't dead.  Check out The Order which pairs Ap's verbal skills with a beat from one of the best who does it, DJ Premier.   Read More...
