Back from the Dead: What You’ve Missed

Well, It’s been a busy few weeks for me, and now i’m ill so I finally have the time to update you on all you have missed.

I warn you this is a long one:

Rap News:

The Cool Kids came back with a few more tracks, ‘Swimsuits’ of course, but now also ‘Penny Hardaway’, ‘Gas Station’ and my favourite ‘Summer Jam’, I have listed them in that order below, and The Cool Kid’s new album is due for release on the 12th of July.

In other Rap news Nas released a track with Common called ‘Ghetto Dreams’ which is more of Nas’ old skool style hip hop so worth catching up on. Jim Jones teamed up with Girl Talk to make ‘Believe in Magic’ which is available for download:

Finally for rap Tyler, The Creator has released a summer mix tape which you can download here.

In general ‘indie’ music:

A band called Gross Magic released a track entitled ‘Sweetest Touch’, they self describe there genre as Psychedelic Lo-Fi Pop, which sounds a hell of a lot better than the diseased and infected word ‘INDIE’:

Bombay Bicycle Club churned out a new track ’Shuffle’ which sounds refreshingly different to both ‘Flaws’ and ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose’ and has a catchy kind of ‘bounce’ to it:

CSS came out with their new track with Bobby Gillespie from Primal Scream ‘Hit’s Me Like A Rock’ it’s available for free download off their website, and here it is linked below:

Coldplay released Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall’s EP and this gem was found on it , it actually interested me because I found out Brian Eno was responsible for their new sound, again here it is below:

Tennis covered Brenda Lee’s ‘Is It True?’ in their usual 60’s revival fashion:

AND FINALLY TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS RELEASED HIS VIDEO TO ‘TROUBLE’ (which happened a while ago but only just realised i never posted it)


Lucky for you I have The Horrors ‘Skying’, Beirut’s ‘The Rip Tide’, AND Washed Out’s ‘Within And Without’ before release so I can give you a nice review of which songs to buy and which to avoid.

It’s good to be back
