TGIF. Get out and enjoy the weekend. A little AWOLNATION to kick it off.
Thanks to the fine folks at Carlsberg, beer isn’t the only reason why you should love them. Check out this killer video from their Where’s The Party? promotion from this past summer featuring Axwell. Sick video and I’m sure like me, you’ll want to be there next year. Carlsberg and Axwell teamed up to visit Gothenburg, Stockholm, Bastad and Visby as part of the quest to bring a slice of Miami and Ibiza to Sweden.
New music Tuesday is here and a good week if you love hip-hop.
- Drake’s much anticipated sophomore effort, Take Care, drops and should come firing out the gate and reach number one on the charts.
- Donald Glover and his alter ego, Childish Gambino, release his debut album CAMP, a follow-up to his heralded EP.
- Betty Wright: The Movie with The Roots, a soulful album with plenty of guest spots may be the play however.
- And on the indie front, Los Campesinos! are back with their latest full length release, Hello Sadness.
Kicking this week off with a little soul mostly because I can’t wait for new music Tuesday tomorrow and Betty Wright: The Movie – with The Roots. Yes, you didn’t misread that, the 70s soul singer has teamed up with one of my favorite groups to put together quite the album which also includes guest spots by Snoop Dogg, Joss Stone and Lil Wayne who drops in on the track below, “Grapes on a Vine.”
It’s also great timing for The Roots who put out their latest album, Undun, at the beginning of December.
The latest track to surface off The Black Keys’ upcoming El Camino. Thanks to ListenBeforeYouBuy.net for the tip earlier today.
Tonight should be a fun one over at Rain Nightclub at Palms where the RedBull Thre3Style DJ battle will be taking place. Add in special guest Talib Kweli and DJ Vice with wicked performance and this is a night any music lover won’t want to miss. Click HERE to read up on the Thre3Style event.
On February 14, indie-pop duo Tennis follow up this year’s Cape Dory with a new album, Young and Old, on Fat Possum. The album was recorded with the Black Keys‘ Patrick Carney manning the decks. Before that, Tennis have a single out on Forest Family, Origins, that’s due on December 6.
