Everyone seems to be feeling very generous with their music these days. First off it was Kanye starting the trend with his GOOD Fridays and now Snoop Dogg has decided to give it try. He has launched Puff Puff Pass Tuesdays which is pretty self explanatory in what it means for fans! A song every week on Tuesday, and yesterday his twitter followers gained a treat, Snoop let loose “El Lay”, a track featuring Marty James. It's set to appear on his new album Doggumentary which is slated for a March release. Enjoy and don't forget to puff, puff, pass.
On Monday we had news of a new Gruff Rhys track coming in early Feb but today we have another called "Honey All Over. A nice laid back Humpday listen for you to take in wherever you may be. It will feature on his upcoming album Hotel Shampoo which is set for release on February 14th. With all of the tasters we're getting from this album Valentines day doesn't seem like too long to go without a track from the Super Fury Animals front man.
We dropped the audio stream for the new Death Set single "Slap Slap Slap Pound Up Down Snap" yesterday and now the official video for the track is here. Check out the awesome video above which also features the track "Yo David Chase! You P.O.V. Shot Me In The Head feat. Diplo" at the end of the vid. The group's second full LP Michel Poiccard (Executive produced by Spank Rock/Fully Fitted/Kele producer XXXChange) drops February 28th via Ninja Tune Records, check out the tracklist below and preorder your copy here.

Following the release of new album What Separates Me From You late last year, A Day To Remember took to the stage on Jimmy Kimmel last night. They stepped up and delivered roaring performances of lead single "All I Want" which we got to see the cameo filled video of last week. Along with this they played album track "Better Off This Way" which you can catch after the jump. What Separates Me From You is out now if you fancy picking it up.
Yesterday Cage The Elephant's new album Thank You, Happy Birthday was released and to coincide with this, the band paid a visit to David Letterman's late night slot and brought along a few performance. Up at the top you can check their performance of the single "Shake Me Down", which also got the official video treatment yesterday. After the jump you can watch an online exclusive performance of "Around My Head". Liking the sound these guys have got on the new album. Looks like they have some nice pedal boards too. Kudos. Thanks to our friends over at The Audio Perv for the videos.
We found out at the weekend that Trent Reznor is going to be scoring another film, this time in the shape of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. We found out via an interview that streamed on Friday for the NY Times. As well as announcing his involvement with the film Trent also revealed some truths about the touring future of Nine Inch Nails as well as a obligitory Greatist Hits compilation. He also touches on How To Destroy Angels new material won't sound like the EP. Take a look at the interview (part 1 at the top, 2 got removed sadly and the rest after jump) to find out all the details.
We've previously been lucky enough to be given a video of Bad Books playing their track "Baby Shoes" from this very same show, back in December. Now the band has offered up another video via ApK media of their take of Built To Spill's "The Plan". Not only that but you can also grab yourself a free download of the audio too!
It was filmed by Brian Lane of Brand New and his partner Dan Nevetta who together make up ApK Media.back when the peice was recorded Andy said. "That night was just an incredible environment where this new band of ours was able to take in an amazingly awesome and intimate setting." Check it out for yourself. Their debut LP is available for just $5 over on Amazon so why not grab a Tuesday bargain.
The Death Set return with their first single "Slap Slap Slap Pound Up Down Snap" from their new album Michel Poiccard. Check it out in the player below and watch the video on how to properly perform the handshake above. After that, head over to iTunes and pick this single up as well as the additional tracks "Been Too Long" and "Yo David Chase! You P.O.V. Shot Me In The Head (O G Version)" (all produced with Spank Rock/Kele producer XXXChange), then let your mind totally be blown up, pieced back together and the smashed in once by TDS amazing energy, which reminds me alot of Death From Above 1979.
