Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer & Jorma Taccone are those funny guys that make up The Lonely Island. By now we're used to their antics and their last catchy gem was "I Just Had Sex" which featured Akon and a lot of you will be familier with other catchy track such as "I'm on a Boat" Featuring T-Pain, and "Like a Boss" with everyones favourite stoner Seth Rogan. Last night another comedic video/track appeared on line. "The Creep" features none other than the lady of the moment, Nicki Minaj and was recorded for Saturday Night Live. However, it is also the second Single from The Lonely Island’s second LP coming out this Spring! Hat tip to Kitty Says to waking up to this Sunday Morning, dance filled video. DO THE CREEP!
I thought I was done working for the night. But nooooooo. The good folks over at ListenBeforeYouBuy had to debut a new Toro Y Moi track. Just kidding, we love those guys. Check out the track "New Beat" from Toro's upcoming sophomore album Underneath the Pine which will be released on February 22, 2011. If you missed Toro's first single "Still Sound" from the new album, you should check it out here.
Dangerous Thoughts (Black Thought x Danger Mouse) Still In The Works x The Money Making Jam Boys On The Way
Looks like Rome and the new U2 album might not be the only Danger Mouse projects we get this year. The Legendary Roots Crew frontman, Black Thought announced various projects hes been working on in a video last year with Strictly Fitted. One was the release of The Roots latest LP How I Got Over, the next was making music with his side crew Money Making Jam Boys (who consist of Black Thought, Dice Raw, Truck North, P.O.R.N. and STS) and lastly was the Dangerous Thoughts collaboration with Danger Mouse.
So far we've seen the release for How I Got Over and on February 3rd, clothing brand 10.Deep will be releasing the Money Making Jam Boys mixtape, The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic. So hopefully that means a release for Dangerous Thoughts can't be too far away, but then again The Roots' MC announced this collaboration several years ago stating it would release likely around the same time as DangerDOOM's The Mouse and the Mask. But hey, 2 out of 3 so far is a good indication of things to come. Check out the first taste (courtesy of Hypetrak) of the Money Making Jam Boys mixtape, The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic with the track "Day Job" produced by Khari Ferrari. The mixtape will be available for download at 10Deep.com/MMJBMIXTAPE at 12pm on February 3rd.
Okay, this is the final preview that we are posting from PJ Harvey's forthcoming album Let England Shake. The good folks over at Dazed Digital recently featured the album's title track "Let England Shake" in their January Playlist. So if you don't preorder this album right now, especially after hearing...who knows how many tracks, you have some serious issues and should get them checked out. Out of everything we heard thus far from this LP, we can tell you its gonna be a top album of 2011. Let England Shake releases on February 14th (UK) via Island Records and the 15th (US) via Vagrant Records.
Take a listen to another leak from the Dr. Dre camp, this time for the track "I Need A Doctor" which features Eminem and Skylar Grey. A really nice track but the stand out for me is Skylar's voice blasting out over the beat in the chorus. Her vox difinately make this a very radio friendly track as well as a catchy one. In a similar line to Eminem and Rihanna's collaboration last year with "The Way You Lie". A good listen but is this really worthy of all the hype surrounded Dr. Dre's new release? Check it out and decide for yourself below via Hypetrak.
Super Furry Animal's frontman Gruff Rhys has released his second single from his forthcoming solo album Hotel Shampoo titled "Sensations In The Dark." Gruff explains this track as a "feel-good, mariachi-tinged ode to the joys of falling in love with music." Well described. The track is already making its way around radio and will be released on a 12" vinyl and digitally on February 7th. The vinyl release will included an exclusive B-side called "Follow The Sunflower Trail (Theme Tune For A National Strike)." Sweet! Check out the single below, then head over here to preorder Hotel Shampoo before it's Valentine's Day (Feb 14th) release.
On Thursday we saw Wiz Khalifa perform on George Lopez' show which was a big step for WIz and today a new track has surfaced with a video to go along with it too. Not a bad start to the Weekend, and you can check it out up at the top. A pretty chilled out track featuring Too $hort, and a video full of plenty of weed smokin'. Have a chill and put your feet up. Maybe hold back on the Champagne and blunts though. It's still early!
Check out a new/unfinished track from D-12 with their general Eminem titled " Hit Me With Your Best Shot" which samples the Pat Benatar song of the same name.
