This shit will calm any beast or baby. Found this a few years back and literally dedicated my ears for life to all things Yukimi and little dragon related. I remember I ran up on her at the roots picnic some years ago as a crazed fan …a year + later she asked me on tour over twitter lol. Then she showered me with unexpected nice comments when I met her and I broke into tears… Then I stood stuck in a trance watching her kill the southby stages. Then she recently just sent me incredible tracks for my next album. Life is surreal god bless Yukimi god bless little dragon. — SZA
SZA‘s highly anticipated, extremely hypnotic new record Z is finally out today, which also means this is the day SZA becomes a massive star, so we feel very #blessed to have her in charge here at GvsB all day. Stick around + stay up on all of SZA’s posts in one spot right here. Here’s Z highlight (and one of the best songs of 2013) “Julia“; you can listen to the record in its entirety on spotify.
Ejecta‘s twinkling, heartbreaking “Eleanor Lye“, taken from one of the best debuts of last year, gets a rather intense and beautiful video, in which we witness the stark, emotional (re)birth of our fearless heroine. Directed by the always wonderful Allie Avital Tsypin of creative collective BANGS:

The endearingly mysterious (or maybe just super shy) dd elle sent over his/her latest track, and like the warm + lovely “Kind 2 U“, this one is a sweet, slightly warped little pop gem that continues to grow on us after countless listens. The kind of ghostly “Love Me Only” is taken from dd elle‘s forthcoming u EP, out soon.
