Cris Cab – Rihanna’s Gun (Feat. Mavado) (Prod. Wyclef Jean)

Wyclef still putting down A-plus beats. Here he teams up again with Pharrell protege Miami native Cris Cab. The track’s a mix between pop, reggae, and UK electronic music and features a neat little 16 bars from big Mavado.

Disclosure – Flow (Amusement Remix)

dar

UK electronic act Disclosure have a new release (Make Mine) at the ready and to prep the streets for its release the duo have let loose this Balearic-y version of MM track “Flow”. It’s light, it’s sun-drenched but it’s also dynamic and kinetic. It’s a sharp little mix. Give it some spins below.

SHOW REVIEW: We Have Band @ 114, Paris 01/22/12

By Tamara Tabet

wehavebandtambourine

It’s always such a pleasure to see a We Have Band show!

The band was playing at “the 114”, a new and hype parisian venue for the launching party of an equally new and hype magazine named Plugged. We thus got to have a preview listening of several tracks from their upcoming album Ternion, and they just sound great! The band still has much energy to spare. Despite singer Dede’s usual (but harmless) simpers, and Thomas’s (her husband and bass player) flimsy voice, the set is brilliant. In my opinion, the trio’s strongest member is undoubtedly Darren: being so close to him while he plays is really impressive because he literally feels in fusion with his sampler – a mad-doctor of indie-rock ! But what’s truly admirable about this band is that even though their songs are fairly dark (even more so on Ternion), they still make you dance the hell out of you! Special honors for “Watertight”, available for streaming below.

Saskatchewan – The Morning (The Weeknd)

By Jon Herriot

saskatchewan

If anyone was to cover Canadian R&B sensation The Weeknd, why not a band named after a province in the same country? Saskatchewan covers this track well, keeping the same dreamy vibes we are used to with The Weeknd tracks. What started as a suggestion from a friend has turned into a cover that will surely garner these guys some attention.

Shimmering Stars – When I See You Again

shimmering-stars1

“When I See You Again” is rough around all of the right edges. Like it’s big and loud but also packs some pretty cool vocal elements. When was the last time you heard such an awesome round in a rock and roll song? “When I See You Again” is previewed from Shimmering Stars forthcoming Ghosts Past EP. Get into it below:

Ed Sheeran & Yelawolf – You Don’t Know (For Fuck’s Sake)

By Aisling Sheehan

edsheeranyelawolf

Ed Sheeran’s mellow vocals are a great counterpoint to Alabama rapper Yelawolf’s badass rhymes. The lyrics are clever, and the contrast really works. Sheeran gets bonus points for being friends with Britpop boy band One Direction. 🙂

David’s Lyre – English Roses

davidslyre

David’s Lyre continues to roll forward with new track “English Roses”. “English Roses” balances very well great pop hooks with a bit less pop, spacier instrumental arrangement (Think 00’s British guitar music).

Justice – On’n’On (Rick Rubin Remix)

rickrubin

Professional bearded dude Rick Rubin moonlights as remixer on this all the way thrown back version of Justice’s “On’n’On”. We’re talking alllll the way back. Like poppin’ 1978 jello shots at your other lover’s other lover’s fly backyard pool party back. Spin it.

The Micks – A

By Chris Gedos

themicks

The Micks are buddies of The N’ere Dowells. These are New York rockers who (it’s safe to say) compose anti-Manhattan music, for there’s something quintessentially iconoclastic and anti-capitalistic in their tone, something which speaks to the root of Rock itself. Just peep The Micks’ double A-side, oh-so-fittingly entitled, A. The raw production compliments songs fresh out of the think tank. Both groups will be playing at the Brooklyn Knitting Factory this Saturday the 28th (74 Leonard Street, New York, NY 10013). It’ll be seven of the best dollars you’ll ever spend. I promise.

Capital Cities – Breathe (Feat. Tupac) (Pink Floyd Cover)

capitalcitiesbreathe

Capital Cities take their shot at a b3sci consensus Top 5 PF song. To help the CC blokes tackle the DSOTM opener is their friend Tupac, who when last we checked in with him was kickin’ it poolside in Cancun, seven sexy senoritas grabbing at his Fila (Tupac is fly enough to wear Fila in 2012.)
