Have you caught this video of TOO MANY ZOOZ playing in Union Square subway stop?
Upbeat, toe-taping and god damn can that baritone saxophonist dance (side note: do you know how hard it is to play a saxaphone and dance? It’s very, very hard).
Watch this video to put a smile on your face. Get excited about life. TOO MANY ZOOZ is going to help you start the weekend off right.
Son Lux - Easy (ft. Lorde)
Lorde and Son Lux work together to dramatically improve the latter’s “Easy,” giving it a power the original lacks.
This is an amazing nighttime jam. Press play and close your eyes. Its beginning might seem harsh but let it warm up. Those three or so minutes will feel interminably long but the song is exactly the right length.
You might go to reblog it but not before pressing repeat.
Dropping this Friday on Soundcloud ‘Catch the Throne’ featuring Wale, Big Boy, Daddy Yankee, Common and more.
The mixtape will be cover some themes of the show: kings, queens, dragons, war, and politics. It’s also designed to help catch up people who haven’t read the Game of Throne series (or watched the show) or at the very least, provide new perspective on characters.
Big Boi is a noted fan of the series and TV show and I can’t wait to see the results.
Iggy Azalea - Fancy ft. Charli XCX (by iggyazaleamusicVEVO)
2014 is already proving to be an embarrassment of riches in music. Earlier, I posted Chromeo’s newest single but I had to follow up and share this new song by Iggy Azalea (featuring Charli XCX).
Let the era of badass women reign. This video is the most perfect revamp and homage to Clueless. And Charli XCX is a great lighthearted companion to Azalea’s crisp raps.
So, tell me—are you so fancy?
Chromeo - Jealous (I Ain’t With It)
The song premiered on BuzzFeed yesterday and is officially available on iTunes.
“Jealous (I Ain’t With It”) is the fourth single released from the electro-funk duo’s newest album (out March 12th). With over four years since their last release, it’s great to see little more pop than what we’re used to with Chromeo but with their same touch of their introspection and commentary.
Did I mention it’s catchy? Damn, is it catchy. And before you are filled with despair at the catchy, slightly-typical chorus (especially after a year of “Blurred Lines”), check out what Dave 1 (the lead singer) said about the inspiration behind the song:
Guys are all schmucks, let’s face it. I don’t know why music constantly extols this fictitious macho fantasy persona — we’re all just puny insecure oversize children. And it would be funnier to embrace it.”
