stream Earl Sweatshirt’s new record Some Rap Songs

SOME RAP SONGS

Earl drops his dizzying new record Some Rap Songs, on which he beautifully channels the legends Lord Quas and DOOM, conjures the spirit of Dilla's living, breathing Donuts-era beats, and even elicits vibes of Mica Levi's flickering and soulful but sometimes mournful loops that glowed up the brilliant new Tirzah record, all in under 25 minutes. Plus he shouts out Ish Butler in the first 20 seconds of track one, quickest way to our hearts. Incredible, haunting stuff. Listen below:

stream Mr Twin Sister’s stellar new record Salt

MR TWIN SIS SALT

One of the best bands around just dropped a new record, and it's not even Friday yet. A cursory glance at Salt's tracklist had us feeling just slightly bummed that the record doesn't include the also stellar recent singles/jams "Echo Arms" + "Power of Two", but that feeling melted away as soon as we hit play on opener "Keep on Mixing"...
