The reason San Fermin is so hard to describe is that every new song seems to hold its own distinct genre. I’m really just going off of Google Play’s genre listing here, so for Jackrabbit, we’re going with Baroque Pop because that sounds pretty cool. The track itself lends its listener a great rising feeling courtesy […]

This week is going to be pretty damn good in terms of new album releases from a few great artists: Lord Huron: Strange Trails [IAMSOUND] – Riding the wave of their recent singles like Fool for Love, which I totally dug, The World Ender, Frozen Pines, and The Night We Met, LA-based Lord Huron is set up to […]

The sun is finally out and everyone’s driving down the freeway with their windows open like it’s not still a little cold. But they don’t care. Summer’s here and you need something new to blast out your window while you pretend your bermuda shorts and flip flops are totally weather appropriate. The TAJ’s Summer 2015 […]

It’s looking like the upcoming Alchemist and Oh No collaboration album Welcome to Los Santos is going to be all killer, no filler. Yesterday’s release of Killer Mike and MNDR’s Lock & Load is the musical equivalent of tripping shrooms in the middle of a firefight; Killer Mike spits a fire verse (pun intended) over a deceptively […]

With so many soul singers crossing over into electronica these days (lookin’ at you Aloe Blacc and Marian Hill), it’s hard to impress people with more of the same, especially with tastemaker YouTube channels like Majestic Casual and The Vibe Guide pimping out clubby hi-hat-heavy tracks hourly. But something stuck out to me with the […]

Pay close attention to this London-based songwriting duo, because they’re about to blow up in a big way. Not much is really known about Oh Wonder’s Anthony and Josephine except for the fact that the band is planning to release one track a month leading up to their first official album release on September 4th. […]

When a dynamic artist like Wale goes back to the drawing board after an album with mixed reviews and a few tumultuous life events, it represents a major step forward for better or worse. Good thing for the DC rapper and his fans, yesterday’s release of The Album About Nothing represents the former in a […]

After teasing their new album The Waterfall, due out May 4th, with the single Big Decisions earlier this month, Louisville indie rockers My Morning Jacket have released another waterfall-visualizer-assisted single called Spring (Among the Living). Frontman Jim James croons ‘boy I was ready for spring’ over MMJ’s signature live instrumentation sound, and you can’t help […]

I’ll admit it. Anything Earl Sweatshirt jumps on is pretty much gold in my book. That being said, Oh No & Alchemist’s collaborative Gangrene project has gone and done it again with this track featured on the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V (finally, thank god) coming out April 14th. The track, with its funky bassline, jazz […]

The legend Pete Rock returns with a teaser to his new album Petestrumentals 2. The track features rock’s signature groovy bassline, chipmunk soul samples and a guitar sample you’d probably hear in an early Santana jam. Take a listen to the cut from the new album dropping June 23rd and share your reactions below.
