Your Thursday Mixtape – Vol 2

29 Apr

I loved Chiddy Bang‘s mixtape. Almost every track was great – now their first single samples MGMT. The album should come out in August – until then, things are looking up for the young Philly duo.  The video is also hilarious. [Buy Here]

Chiddy Bang – Opposite Of Adults

Eminem is back on the map people. He has been releasing a few freestyles and featured on some songs, and now has released his first single off his new album Recovery. Check it out. [Buy Here]

Eminem – Not Afraid

Drake has a new song. That’s all I need to say. I cannot wait for this album. [Buy Here]

Drake – Find Your Love (Produced_By_Kanye_West)

I have always been a huge fan of Crystal Castles, so when their new songs starting to come out, I was pumped. Then I listened to some and was a bit disappointed. But “Baptism” has grown on me so much – I love it. [Buy Here]

Crystal Castles – Baptism

MORE TRACKS AFTER THE JUMP!

La Roux‘s single (which I’ve had since SEPTEMBER – just saying), is so catchy you will be singing it instantly. Also, she is bouncing on the popularity of 8-bit sound still. [Buy Here]

La Roux – Bulletproof

The Game is back and he’s bringing with him beat maker Pharrell and expert chorus singer Justin Timberlake. Look for this song soon – just leaked this week. [Buy Here]

The Game – Ain’t No Doubt About It (Ft. Justin Timberlake & Pharrell)

A 5 person group, Fang Island describe themselves as “everyone high-fiving everyone.” Their tracks often build more and more, so listen to this new track all the way through. [Buy Here]

Fang Island – Life Coach

MIA has a new track! This one showcases her wide range of talent once again. Combining a rock beat with electro vocals through a megaphone. It’s loud, chaotic, and crazy – but it will make you want to jump around. [Buy Here]

MIA – Born Free

Well look who is back on the scene. N.E.R.D makes a return to the world of music with their new single ft Nelly Furtado. Nothing amazing, but another radio summer jam. [Buy Here]

N.E.R.D – Hot N Fun (Feat Nelly Furtado)

The Phantogram are a duo from Saratoga Springs, they got together to push the boundaries of indie-rock music. Combining guitars with trancey synths and vocals to make songs like this. They have opened for bands like Minus The Bear, Zero 7, Ra Ra Riot, Yeasayer, Brazilian Girls and The Slip. [Buy Here]

Phantogram – When I’m Small

How many songs is B.o.B. going to release? Well this one wasn’t able to make the CD cut – it samples Coldplay’s “Lost” and features TI! Check it out. [Buy Here]

B.o.B – Not Lost (ft TI)

DeVotchKa has been around for a while, but I just found this song fitting for all the Caps fans out there. Tough loss last night to swallow…let it out. [Buy Here]

DeVotchKa – How It Ends

Siriusmo (Moritz Friedrich) is from Berlin, he often works with Modeselektor, so you know it’s going to be crazy good DJ beats. [Buy Here]

I love Little Boots so much. She can do no wrong, and after watching her performance at Coachella, I need to see her live. This song is one of my favorites from the album. [Buy Here]
