VOGUE DOTS: “Way Out”

vogue dots

Smitten. I’m so effing smitten by this song I think I must have listed to it a trillion times in a row today. The opening is subdued in a haze, and it only teases to something catchy until it all blows up into a full on, hazy blissgasm. The beat is unstoppable, and while at only a shade over 3 minutes long, it could go on an on for a decade and we’d still be partying. We’ve always cared most about artists who push the medium forward. Hard to argue with this movement. Man I love Canadian electro pop. Seriously, hope that country gets the credit it deserves when this time is considered in retrospect.

ILOVEMAKONNEN: “Club Goin Up on a Tuesday (ft. DRAKE)”

There is literally nothing right now that makes me as happy as ILOVEMAKONNEN’s lazy kinda high pitched voice. That fleeting moment when he says “made at least 3,000″ just warms the depth of my heart. I wish I’d had it all summer because basically it would have been a better summer. But it’s cool, I’ll let it hot up the coming winter. Sheesh this song is so catchy. I’ll see you out there on Tuesday.

VINCE STAPLES: “Blue Suede”

vince-staples

VINCE STAPLES’ “Blue Suede” flows atop an off-and-on grumbling, simple bass line perfectly. It’s not the catchiest song you’ll ever hear, or something destined to blow up the club, but it’s wonderful; impressive. STAPLES’ cadence swags like a knife.

[video] STITCHES: “Brick in Yo Face”

stitchjpeg

If you haven’t already heard about STITCHES, you certainly will soon. He’s a local rapper slash bad man from down here in Miami Dade County who’s making a lot of waves for his video and appearance; STITCHES has stitches tattooed on his face, over his mouth, as well as a cute little machine gun tattooed on that same face. And gold teeth. And he’s white. Seems like a pretty dedicated gimmick if it is that. But that’s not why I’m posting it here. I’m posting it because the song is really really good. I can’t stop playing it. I can’t stop. STITCHES had me at “I love selling bloowwwwwwww.” While the video is nice and everything (he’s fun to look at), it’s more about the song for me. It goes hard a f.

OUGHT: “Habit”

This was enough to get me excited about music again. Not that this has been a bad year or anything but I’m a child of the early Twenty Ten’s blog scene. The vibe’s changed. I don’t know what happened. Maybe cuz we just get older and shit changes. Whatever it is, this song got me excited again. Made me log in here and share this. Maybe you’ve heard it. Probably you have. But someone hasn’t, I guarantee that. I don’t know what it is about a new great song that’s so exciting. I think it’s cuz we actually use these things. Think about catchy songs you’ve used up. How they’re all used up. Where’d they go? This kinda reminds me of David Byrne but I don’t know. Real weird melody on this one. Like bad but in a good way. I’m about it. It’s a little long it’s cool when it counts tho.

GLASSPOPCORN: “Nightingale (prod. FRIENDZONE)”

glass

GLASSPOPCORN‘s been the most unheralded, unusual young musician developing and progressing on the internet exclusively before our eyes over the last few years. And just as the boy gets older and becomes a young man, his music matures accordingly, with the aggressive trap elements of his true youth giving way to the delicate, subdued trap pop stylings we find here with his first single of 2014, “Nightingale.” It’s good to see the genius exhibited on 2013′s “35 Pounds of Vomit” was not a diversion. Instead, GPC’s new product feels thoughtful and romantic, a welcome thread to run through the young rapper’s newest output.
