Bad (remix feat. Rihanna) | The Gifted

With the release of Wale's new album The Gifted came the remix of his sexy single "Bad." The remix is made up of a fresh new beat and Rihanna's raw gritty vocals. The two add a fun flare to the song while trading off of each other throughout. A constant mix of rapping and singing bring a much more engaging and fun vibe. I'm going to need Wale to release this to radio stations ASAP, because this is without a doubt my new…

Feel it when your heart beats! Old-school Nashville soul & country come together in Johnnyswim's 'Heart Beats' EP. #SoundCheck

There's some music that just belongs on a movie soundtrack. Last year's The Glorious Dead from The Heavy especially demanded inclusion on the score to some summer epic (and if you can listen to any doom metal without picturing the Lord of the Rings style battle that should be staged to it then you're a better man than I...). The new EP from Johnnyswim may not have the world-ending scope of The Heavy, but the lush arrangements and giant melodies of …

Where were you the day MJ Died??

Before MJ died four years ago today, I imagined his death being a national mourning period. Kinda like 9/11 but maybe more controversial like Hurricane Katrina. But one thing I never expected was for it to come so soon.…

Bells Atlas' debut record merges soul Afrobeat and dream-pop. This is the kind of record that kickstarts movements. #SoundCheck

Since hearing “Loving You Down” I've been totally hooked on Bells Atlas. One of the most inventive original bands in recent memory, Oakland's Bells Atlas merges soul, Afrobeat, and dream-pop for a sound that's unlike anything else out there. Eminently chill and sexy in equal measure but with out of this world complexity and musical sophistication, their self-titled debut is the first must-hear album of the summer. (And yeah yeah I know it's only been summer for like 2 days, but…
