Curren$y – ‘Here’ (EP)

The 2012 season has officially began for Curren$y. He dropped a brand new, unexpected 5-song EP while the world was fixated on the Super Bowl Sunday night. Curren$y delivers his usual quality bars over a pack of beats that range from somber, fairly simple tracks to a couple flashy samples with upbeat nature. If you’ve never listened to Curren$y…. start #Here

The Black Keys – “Gold on the Ceiling” (Video)

The Black Keys dropped El Camino not too long ago and we’ve been basking in its shear awesomeness ever since.  Though, on an album chocked full of bluesy rock bliss, the foot-stomper “Gold on the Ceiling” may be the standout track.  The video’s a fairly low-risk assortment of live performance shots, recording studio footage, and down-time antics that lets the track do all the work.  Hit the jump and give it a watch.  Enjoy.

M.I.A. – “Bad Girls” (Video)

Last night she flicked off America’s on its largest stage and now, she’s got a new video for backup.  I’m not sure how M.I.A. continues her streak of being just so fucking cool but let me assure you, “Bad Girls” does nothing to tarnish her image.  I don’t think anyone can make dancing in the streets of Morocco look so awesome.  Jump and enjoy, children.

The Darkness – “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” (Video)

Right on the heels of their pretty fucking sweet Super Bowl commercial, The Darkness are back with a new set of visuals.  The video for “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” is a cartoon-filled, classic rock romp-fest that’s really a whole bunch of fun.  I can’t really say when their next LP is set to drop, but I think it’s fair to assume it won’t be too long from now.  It’s great to see these guys back on the scene, putting out some new tuneage.  Jump and enjoy.

The Shins – “September” (Video)

Not too long ago, The Shins graced us with the brand spankin’ new single for their track “Simple Song” and now, we have the B-side (with a video, no less).  “September” itself is a fairly listenable track but its accompanying video is another story.  Chocked to the brim with ‘wordy’ visuals, this video was inspired by the artwork of one Jacob Escobedo.  Jump away and give it a watch (and read).  Port of Sorrow is out March 20.  Enjoy.

James Blake – “Left & Right (Harmonimix Remix)” (D’Angelo Cover)

I absolutely love it when two of my favorite artists come together for remixes.  D’Angelo’s Voodoo was one of the best R&B records of the last twenty years.  Each track was a little piece of grooveable, soul and hearing it reworked by one of the best in the business today is just plain wonderful.  Here’s James Blake’s remix of D’Angelo’s “Left & Right” under his Harmonimix moniker.  Jump and enjoy.

M. Ward – “The First Time I Ran Away” (Video)

Generally, I run pretty hot and cold with M. Ward.  There’s no discounting the fact that he’s one of the best songwriters of the past 20 years, but his recent stint with Zooey Deschanel was, in my opinion, entirely too fucking long.  Though, “The First Time I Ran Away” is a great way to reestablish himself on the scene as the venerable solo act he really is.  The visuals for this one showcase some really innovative animation that for what ever reason sets off a melancholic Invader Zim vibe inside me.  Kudos, M. Ward.  Jump and enjoy.
