#tbt: Hollywood by Marina and the Diamonds

Never one to shy away from snark and sarcasm, Marina gives us a lot to think about with “Hollywood,” which she usually performs live with a giant plush hamburger. In an interview, she stated “Hollywood infected my brain and I really valued the wrong things in life, but I changed dramatically… This obsession with celebrity culture is really unhealthy.” What she brings to the dancefloor is a party anthem with a cotton candy voice that hides a very sharp and poignant jab at celebrity culture. Marina constantly reminds us to check our values and what we’re investing our time in, making sure we don’t get too “obsessed with the mess of America.”

Her acoustic version is nothing short of amazing either.

Made in Heights - Murakami

Made In Heights are two dreamy people making even dreamier jams, reminiscent of Lorde and Cashmere Cat, but with some Yeezus-level drops for good measure. While “Murakami” was technically released last year, it’s getting our love now as we zip into hoodies and sink into fall with the same  determination as the song’s steady beat. 

Synth-driven with whispery, alluring vocals, “Murakami” combines elements of all sorts of recent musical trends, but in the end all are condensed into a magical lush sound that’s still fresh. Lending even more impending fall spookiness are the lyrics: “I’m losing touch with the physical/I’m showing up in the future like I’ve been here before” and “don’t know if this is real or a dream/imagination playing tricks on me.” A playful nod to noted fantasy author Haruki Murakami, the potential namesake for the song, or hipster nonsense? Personally, we don’t care as long as they keep singles like this coming.

(Made in Heights is also on tour—make sure to report back to us if you see them live!)

Ever heard the story of where Donald Glover got the name Childish Gambino? This On the Media podcast tells the story. It involves WuTang, old school Internet games and the question: is Donald Glover being Childish Gambino a very fact of the Universe?

New Music: Childish Gambino - Sober

Gambino has released an unmixed version of the first track from STN MTN/KAUAI, the upcoming EP he teased during an incredible interview with Hot 97 last week. Hailing from the Kauai half of the album, “Sober” is a shimmering, disco-infused comedown, filled with lilting, seductive vocals without a rap verse in sight. Gambino is primed to follow the footsteps of his contemporary, Drake, who found huge success when he dropped rapping for singing on last year’s smash, ”Hold On, We’re Going Home.” For Drake, that was a one-shot radio single folded nicely into what was undeniably a hip-hop album. For Gambino, who has already spoken about the death of rap as a social movement, and made it clear that he has no intention of making a hip-hop album, but something new entirely, this track might be a better indication of what exactly he has in mind.

At the very least, he’s given us the soundtrack for Indian summer. Here in San Francisco, where we’re finally seeing the sun, “Sober” will be heard at parks and beaches citywide, played by people decidedly not sober.
