Killer Mike – Don’t Die (Prod. El-P)

killermike2

Mike Bigga and El-P have a collaborative album in the works (which means you need to be psyched) called R.A.P. music. “Don’t Die” is the third pass from the project and is 100% live. Anytime El-P is on the boards is a must listen and Mike is definitely on his A-game here. Listen NOW.

Lianne La Havas – Only Girl in the World (Rihanna)

liannelahavas

Our girl Lianne takes on Rihanna’s Billboard #1 “Only Girl in the World”. If you know Lianne’s music, you’re probably like whaaaaaa? But don’t let the source material scare you, this cover is 100% LLH style. Lianne takes “OGitW” on to a more jazzy sort of tip, backed up here by a piano-led instrumental. Aside from La Havas’ brilliance here, another key takeaway for us was just the reminder at how phenomenal the melodies on “Only Girl in the World” are and to hear them vocalized like this and in this style is a real pleasure.

Deap Vally – End of the World

deap-vally

Deap Valley spells trouble for your blog. This girl-girl duo pack all the right ingredients to that potential buzz band stew; relevance (they sound enough like the Keys, Sleigh Bells, Alabama Shakers and whoever else to easily enter the dialogue) solid song (there’s enough here song styling-wise to actually enjoy), soulful vox (there’s plenty of feel and swagger in the vocal) and punch (enough to fuel any buzz rebellion). And did we mention? The band is two girls. So if A-squared + B squared = C squared then you should look for these ladies on Saturday Night Live by sometime late next year. (p.s. they’re really fuckin’ good.)

Expeditions – Years

By Trevor Meyer

expeditions

Expeditions are a pop/rock foursome from Cologne, Germany. Here is their 2012 track, “Years”, which delivers nicely on the verses, but that chorus is a very special treat. Sink your teeth into this one.

POSTTOD – Away

By Trevor Meyer

posttod1

Swedish electronic/alt rockers, Posttod, have just shared their free EP, “Moon.” This music really puts you in a remote place, a pastoral, utopian retreat, if you will. Ambient, yet incredibly lively, “Moon” caters to the ever changing moods of our personalities. “Away” is my favorite thus far, but “Through Your Eyes” offers a solid hip-hop/electronic combination overlapped by an ethereal synth line. Give these guys a spin.

SKYPILOT – Anonymous

By Trevor Meyer

skypilot

SKYPILOT are a rock trio from Brisbane, Australia. “Anonymous” is an upbeat, driven rock piece that resembles, at times, The National and Editors. It’s a solid track with some really nice vocal and guitar work. At B3Sci, we’re definitely excited to hear more from SKYPILOT. Get into it.
