Ok y’all…New feature here. Every Tuesday I’ll be dropping a few tracks, videos, etc…that pique the Everything Ecstatic interest. Here’s what we’ve got lined up this week:
Ryan Hemsworth feat Dawn Golden “Snow In Newark”
Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth drops the 1st single off his second LP. Last year’s Guilt Trips was flat out awesome and on “Snow In Newark,” Hemsworth brings a chiller jam to the table with vocals from Mad Decent MC Dawn Golden. Listen:
Kendrick Lamar – “i”
Lower case i in the house! Yes, i’m a notorious abuser of lower case i’s (see what i did there?). Kendrick comes at us with a soulful groove sampling The Isley Brothers’ 1973 hit, “That Lady.” It’s definitely new terrain for Kendrick and my first reaction was “Is Kendrick going all Black Eyed Peas/Pharrell with this crazy accessible poppy shit?” I dunno….Whatever it is, i’m irresistibly drawn to it. Listen for yourself:
SBTRKT video for “New Dorp New York” (feat. Ezra Koenig)
And now for your moment of Zen (ok, it’s my moment of Zen, but it can be yours too!) The sprinkling of material off of SBTRKT’s highly anticipated 2nd LP, Wonder Where We Land continues (officially releases on October 7th.) We were graced with the creepy interactive video for “Look Away” last week and now we have before us, the video for the album’s tripped out first single, “New Dorp New York” with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. It’s an animated look at predatory creatures of the night, including the hybrid SBTRKT-cat from the album’s cover art. Watch it now:
This concludes your Jams Run Free edition #1 program.
