Hey everyone! Here’s a round-up of everything that went on the wonderful world of music on Tuesday, January 8th, 2013.
Foxygen put out a new music video, and garnered a sparkling review from We All Want Someone To Shout For. Check it out here.
Somehow, amazingly, David Bowie is preparing to release a new album. Consequence of Sound has that story, as well as a video, to inform you further. Link is here.
Even more impossibly, there’s a brand new cut from Jimi Hendrix floating around the web. Apparently a posthumous release is being prepped of previously unreleased material! Check out the story here at 2dopeboyz.
Beat master and producer Karriem Riggins has released a new track! You can listen to it here at 2dopeboyz.
There’s been a lot of crazy news coming from the California music festival Coachella in the past few days. Consequence of Sound put together a very nice and convenient write-up to keep track of all the information. You can view that here.
Kid Cudi went on a Twitter rant against his label for not getting his new songs as much radio time as his contemporaries. And he has a point. I haven’t heard a track by Kid Cudi in a long time. And let’s not forget his side-project WZRD, which came and went without so much as a spark of momentum.
Flux Pavilion, after too long of a wait, has finally come around to start releasing music again. Ahead of his EP out January 28th, you can listen to a new track or two at The Music Ninja.
17-year-old rapper Dillon Cooper has put out a new video. The guys at 2dopeboyz have some very complementary words for him, so you should probably check it out.
Sky Ferreira performed on Jimmy Fallon! With the Roots!
Alternative band Bleached has announced a new album and put out a new single. You can read and listen here.
Indie band Theme Park announced their new album.
The brilliant Juicy J has a new song out, featuring Wiz Khalifa. Listen to the song here.
This up-and-coming rapper Serengeti has put out a new track off of his upcoming record “Saal,”due out February 12nd, 2013. You can listen to it here on his Soundcloud. It’s quite the strange listen – it’s not quite a rap.
Zed’s Dead have a new spine-tingling remix out – you can listen to it and many more like it over at The Music Ninja.
In pretty amazing news, media giants Pitchfork has debuted a new service called Advantage, which people can use to stream albums in advance of their release date. Read more about this awesome news at The Line of Best Fit.
And, to wrap up, we wish a very happy birthday to David Bowie, who is 66, and Elvis Presley, who would have been 78 today.
