Drake drops a bomb out of nowhere, releasing mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late before Views From the 6. 

Drake.jpgShowcasing creative production with samples from Ginuwine to Henry Krinkle, Drizzy continues to expand his sound and vibe. Singing, rapping and slurring his way to the top, Drake floats his rhymes and melodies like a relaxed NBA player warmed up and ready for the finals.

CURATOR’S CHOICE

Finally! Garage-rock is dangerous again. 

Death Valley Girls.jpgYou want real deal garage-rock recorded by an actual girl gang? Look no further than Los Angeles’ Death Valley Girls. Rumors have it that there’s a hit out on the punk who stole frontwoman Bonnie Bloomgarden’s orange Fender Mustang. Electric High blends the vocal venom of Bikini Kill with the reverberated ferocity of The Makers.

After a year off from his annual album release schedule, Louis CK is back with Live at the Comedy Store.

Bridging the gap between dance, hip-hop and R&B, Kaytranada breaks the mold with “Drive Me Crazy,” his first single on XL.

Kaytranada.jpgEasily the hottest producer of the moment, Kaytradamus drives ’em crazy with syncopated drums, big round bass and soulful pads. Guest Vic Mensa joins the all-star lineup that’s gaining praise from the BBC to Rick Rubin.

 

 

Toro Y Moi ditches chillwave for a sunnier garage-pop sound.

Toro Y Moi.jpgWith the new album What For? slated to arrive in early April, get your first taste of what’s to come with the its catchy lead single “Empty Nesters.” The Chaz Bundick-driven project Toro Y Moi channels youthful summertime nostalgia by fusing elements of glam, power pop, funk and disco.

 

The band’s first album in eight years finds Erase Errata’s post-punk informed indie rock sounding noticeably seasoned.

Erase Errata.jpgWhere 2009’s Nightlife pulsed and exploded with Erase Eratta’s emotionally chaotic energy, 2015’s Lost Weekend is slightly tamer and easier to digest. Songs like “Scattered Means” and “Another Reason to Arrest & Imprison the ‘Free’” keep their unhinged attack alive and kicking.

 

Fantastically fuzzy, lo-fi, psych-rock from the Guided By Voices school of quirky, indie-pop jangle.

Stronger And Better also happens to be Rockathon Records’ first non-Pollard release in 14 years. Though you’d be hard-pressed to tell, digging into Joseph Airport’s catchy, fragmented GBV-esque pop gems.
