Edmonton, Canada, has put up his initial album on Bandcamp. The album, titled “Monarchy” has a bunch of killer tracks, but for
this post, we are featuring “McQueen”. Perfect name for a tune that makes me feel like I’m cruising in the 80′s. The track is a sick
blend of funk, electro, and some rock. If you’re into Boys Noize, you’ll definitely dig this tune. Also be sure to check out his whole
album on Bandcamp. It is featured as a “name your price”, meaning $0.00-$1,000,000.00. Whatever your heart desires. Check
out “McQueen” by Mosh.
YOU LIKE 90′s HIP-HOP? Then this jam is for you. Much of the rap music that comes out today is sugar
coated & dipped in honey. This tune is straight from the heart, you can really feel uMaNg’s emotions in this tune. In fact, you
can hear it throughout his entire “The First Impression LP”, which can be found on Bandcamp. uMaNg, or Umang Khosla,
which is his real name, moved from the East Coast to Utah, where he is based now. He managed to have his first LP “The First
Impression” featured in the Salt Lake Tribune. If you’ve heard this song before, its for damn good reason. If you haven’t listened
to uMaNg before, you better start right about now, cuz this guy has some of the freshest hip-hop I’ve heard in a while.
REMIX ARTIST COLLECTIVE just recently put out this groovy remix of Youngblood Hawkes single “We Come Running”. This is certainly one of the dancier mixes that RAC has done for a project.
THERES MORE! RAC was featured on Rolling Stones,regarding their newly created Hawke remix. Check out what they had to say about the artist collective’s recent work”
“‘We Come Running’ is a song about facing and conquering your fears. It’s a reminder to always follow your passion, even if it’s seems, at times, impossible. It started as an internal message to the rest of the band and grew into something much larger and universal,” Youngblood Hawke’s Sam Martin tellsRolling Stone. “The song was written in the early stages of the band when we weren’t sure where our music our lives were headed. We went through so much in our personal lives while we were writing this record and sometimes it felt like nothing was ever going to get better. It was a reminder to for ourselves to keep putting our heart and soul into making music, because it’s really the only thing that keeps us going.”

GRANDTHEFT, A TORONTO BASED PRODUCER has thrown together an excellent trap edit to an original Crystal Castles song.
The orignal is already a great tune, but Grandtheft’s edit really gives the song a new element, while maintaining the aspects of the
original. Grandtheft has been growing lately since he remixed Calvin Harris’ “Sweet Nothing” with Diplo, so be out on the lookout.
He has generously put up this edit all for free, so make sure you download it!

HIS FIRST SOLO since his official return back to the world of rap. Earl Sweatshirt brings us “Chum”, a track that presents more of Earl’s inside mind explaining his appreciation for his mom and how he misses his father “like when I was six”. The beat is nothing far from an in-house odd future wave… wobbly low pass bass and a looped piano riff. It’s an emotional song that will most likely turn up on Earl’s upcoming album tracklisting.

THE INDIE ROCK BAND based in Silver Lake, CA, has released a single titled ‘Breakers’, planned to be released along with Local Native’s upcoming album “Hummingbird”, set to be released January 28th of 2013!
Breakers doesn’t stray far from the long track list of songs recorded by Local Natives. It’s a psychedelic clash of electronic synth soloing, live recorded playful claps, and the mastered, uniquely magical sound that these artists never fail to present to it’s listeners.
A Bit of Their Past:
Their debut album, Gorilla Manor, was first released in the UK in November 2009, and later released in the US on February 16, 2010. The album received mostly positive reviews and debuted in the Billboard 200 and at No. 3 in the New Artist Chart. The Local Natives were at many times mentioned to be a “band with magical powers.”
Their sound has been described as “afropop-influenced guitars with hyperactive drumming and hooky three-part harmonies”.Clash Music has also described their style as pysch folk, or modern worldly folk.
The Compton, California based Hip-Hop artist, Kendrick Lamar, who Dr. Dre has called the future of hip-hop, is back at it again
with this album. Kendrick Lamar said that “good kid, m.A.A.d city” is “really just a self portrait”. The album is slated for an October
22nd release, but it has hit the internet a bit early. The man is on a roll, and you can always check back here for his latest music.
LATEST BAAUER REMIX…. it’s quite a tune. The New York based producer, Baauer, has been on a tear lately and
just put his own fresh trap touch to NERO’s latest free tune “Won’t You (Be There)” This is only a world
premiere preview, but we will be on the lookout for the full release so stay tuned with more Baauer to come!
NEW COLLABORATIVE EFFORT by Montreal duo Purity Ring and the infamous Danny Brown!
“Bellispeak II” is everything you would ever imagine to be the sound created by these two
groups. Purity Ring’s stunning vocals by Megan James serve as an underlying lust,
complimenting the crazed, fanatical rapping of Danny Brown. All of this is put into forward,
beautiful motion thanks to Corin Roddicks pillowy yet illuminating instrumentals!
Check out the track via Youtube below:
UK DUO DISCLOSURE brings us a visual piece complimenting a single “Latch” which is set to be released with

IT HAS BEEN HARD WORK IN THE STUDIO these past 2 years for the newly risen Los Angeles band Breakfast,
who released their debut album “Sun/Moon” this past week. The 15 track album is anything but a single, pin
pointed genre. It is a collaborative clash of aethereal vocal soloings by lead female singer Andrea Adolph; new
electronic drum kicks and daunting synth arpeggiators by producer Sean Dwyer; the wonderfully positive and up
lifting, folkish vocals of Max Bussell and Luciano Russo.
IT IS AN ERIE SOUND, yet it can be mistaken for a summer album? It is a wonder as to how these artists managed
to pull of an album, filled of so many emotions and struggles, and have it all sound so in sync and in touch with
itself and the overall flow of the album. Listening to the song such as “The Final Ending”(lyrics by Max Bussell):
its a track that is such an uplifting, empowering track. The most beautiful piece on the album ”Valsa Triste”, is a
song that has such a powerful, mysterious pull on human emotion. Listening to ” Valsa Triste” for the first time, it
is as if one’s mind focuses in on the saddened, beautiful past that each of us all hold within. Songs like these make
the album “Sun/Moon” a musical masterpiece.
ALL IN ALL, it is an absolutely beautiful work of art. “Sun/Moon”, as an album, defines the skill and the ethic that
these artists all hold and share, promising a great future for Breakfast. Stay tuned with more Breakfast music and
