WATCH — BOSS SELECTION “Wouldn’t It Be Wild”

October 17th, 2015


“BOSS SELECTION is the new moniker of LA producer/recording artist Sunny Levine, and we’re super excited to premiere his visuals for “Wouldn’t It Be Wild” with you today. For those of you that may be unfamiliar with Levine, he’s a musical tour de force that’s worked with the likes of Ariel Pink, Pete Yorn, and Scarlett Johansson, among others, and he scored (as well as provided original tracks for) the feature film, Celeste and Jesse Forever. He stems from a legendary musical family that includes legends such as Quincy Jones, Stuart Levine, and QD3. That’s quite a high level of standard to compete with, but Levine as BOSS SELECTION, if this song is any indication, absolutely does not disappoint.” — via Earmilk

October 15th, 2015


“The raunchy Minneapolis rapper has been building up a local fanbase since 2007, putting out a half-dozen underground releases, selling out high-energy shows and earning a hard-partying reputation. In 2013 he signed with Rhymesayers Entertainment, the indie label that put Minnesota hip-hop on the map. Two years later, his debut for the label, Liability, is finally set for release, and it’s Prof’s most engaging set to date, including guest spots from Waka Flocka Flame and Petey Pablo.” — via Rolling Stone

LISTEN — Peaches on WTF with Marc Maron

October 15th, 2015


“Peaches defies easy categorization, unless you want to define her as a multi-media event. She takes Marc on her journey, from growing up Merrill Nisker in Toronto through her artistic career as a musician and performance artist. Marc finds out what provokes Peaches and why she enjoys pushing buttons herself.” — via Stitcher

LISTEN — Grupo Fantasma “Esa Negra”

October 14th, 2015


“For Grupo Fantasma’s first album in five years, the band opted to shake things up. Used to recording themselves, they brought in Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin as producer instead. It was a long, difficult process–hence the eventual album name, Problemas–but Berlin helped the band hone their sound. The result is Grupo’s best album yet. For all the streamlining, though, Problemas (out October 30) is the band’s most sonically adventurous, ranging from a bolero-style Beatles cover to funk-inspired chicha. On “Esa Negra,” heavy metal guitars and cumbia collide with guest Joel Guzman’s accordion virtuosity. In Grupo Fantasma’s kaleidoscopic world, this makes perfect sense.”
