BEST NEW MUSIC: INDIE, ALT POP, CHILL
What’s up, my gang? It’s me again, sliding in with this week’s Best of Instagram post like your best friend’s coworker at 2 AM on a Saturday night. I got our favorites this week, including Raye, Diplo, and Cardi B — Who is finally NOT pregnant! I am team Kulture, guys.
I’m not going to waste your time telling you about Anderson .Paak as I already know that you know and love his work. Bubblin, his newest single dropped in May, but I’m so much more interested in this remix featuring Mr. “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” himself, Busta Rhymes.
Sorry to Bother You is hilarious romp through the worlds of telemarketing, corporate slavery and art, all through a *very* pro-union guise. On top of that, The Coup showed up for soundtrack duties, banging out one of the absolute best tracks of the year.
If there's one artist I want to help spread buzz about in 2018 it's Channel Tres. This dude is EXCITING (ALL CAPS) and I want all of us to get on the Tres train before it leaves the station. Both of his tracks, Controller and now Jet Black, are as good as absolutely anything I have ever heard.
The team and I have once again rounded up the tastiest tweets of the last seven days to feed your need for everything pop kulture. It's time to dig into the following 280-character bites from Cardi B, Kanye West, Ariana Grande, Beach Fossils, Best Coast, and more!
A lot has been said in song about heaven over the years. It’s a place on earth, for easy girls, a halfpipe, a truck, a traffic jam on the 405, etc. But now electro pop duo Terror Jr have the audacity to suggest that Heaven Wasn't Made For Me.
