Your Thursday Mixtape VIII

8 Jul

J. Cole is the first rapper ever signed to Jay-Z’s label RocNation, so that right there should get your attention. He has taken over the internet through mixtapes and is poised to release his new album later this year. [Buy Here]

J. Cole – Who Dat

I’ve told you about Wolf Parade in a previous mixtape, and the more I hear from them, the more I like. Check out this jam. [Buy Here]

Wolf Parade – Oh, You Old thing

Keep reading for even more mp3’s!

While Drake‘s new album might have done great money wise – the critics were torn between it. And for some reason his new single “Fancy” has grown on me so much. [Buy Here]

Drake Ft. T.I. & Swizz Beatz – Fancy

Brandon Flowers has gone solo, and will probably stay that way. His first single is out and his CD will be released in September. Being a (Hot Fuss) Killers fan, I am actually looking forward to hearing more from Brandon.

Brandon Flowers – Crossfire

Just in time for this awful heat of summer, Kid Cudi, Best Coast and Rostam of Vampire Weekend have teamed up for a summer track. Enjoy.

Kid Cudi, Best Coast and Rostam of Vampire Weekend – All Summer

Suckers come from Brooklyn (surprise surprise) and have great building harmonies in their songs. This particular track has a great guitar and reminds me of a Interpol and Fleet Foxes together. Their new album is very nice on a summer day – so go check it out. [Buy Here]

Suckers – Black Sheep
