Stream Tricky's Amazing New Album "False Idols"


You can now stream Tricky's fantastic new album False Idols over at NPR.  False Idols will be released next weak on May 28th.  This album is so, so good.  I've already listened to it five times since last night, and I plan to have it on repeat all day.  Some really chill tunes.  I'm especially enjoying "Is That Your Life".  Do your ears a favor and have a listen!

I The Mighty Release "Echoes"


I The Mighty have released a new song "Echoes" from their upcoming album Satori, which drops on June 11.  You can listen to the song over on Absolutepunk.net.  Given this and "Speak To Me", I expect this album will be quite good!

A Year of Great Electronica & Trip-hop

So far, this has been a really solid year for electronica and trip-hop.  So many great albums have already been released while others are soon to come!  Below I list some of my own highlights for the year.  Do you have any additions?

Bonobo - The North Borders

This album is probably my top album for the year at the moment.  Some really slick trip-hop awesomeness here.  So chill and catchy.  I cannot get enough of the song, "Towers".  But really, every song is so good.  Bonobo really is a master of his art.  You can stream a lot of his tracks on Soundcloud.


Emancipator - Dusk To Dawn

Dusk to Dawn is a solid, organic trip-hop album.  I love listening to it, while working and reading.  It just makes you want to sway!


Sasha - Involv3r

Sasha is a master of DJ sets.  I love all of his singles and Involver albums.  I could listen to his sets on Soundcloud all day if it weren't for all of the other music I need to listen to.  Involv3r is really chill, but there are some really great cuts.  I especially like his version of James Zabiela's "The Healing".

Nick Warren - Renaissance, The Masters Series, Pt. 18

Nick Warren (one of the members of the great group, Way Out West) is another DJ master.  He's always sharing new DJ sets either on Soundcloud or his website.  You should definitely check them out.  Unfortunately his Renaissance mix is not available in the US yet.  But, you can find some tracks around.  This DJ set sees him taking it down a notch with some really ambient house music.



Daft Punk - Random Access Memories (coming May 21)

What can I say about Daft Punk that you don't already know?  They are great.  And, this new album is absolutely fantastic, full of funky grooves -- as if they're reaching back in time to the disco age.  But, you can also hear some influences from their experience composing the Tron Legacy soundtrack.  The album is streaming in full on iTunes.  If you haven't checked it out yet, you need to get on that!

Tricky - False Idols (coming May 28)

I love tricky.  He's one of those artists whose always made the music he loves, and he's pushed trip-hop to new places.  Of the tracks I've heard so far, False Idols is shaping up to be another masterpiece!


August Burns Red Release New Song "Fault Line"

August burns red have released a new song, "Fault Line", from their upcoming album Rescue & Restore, which drops on June 25th.  Song is really, really good.  Definitely looking forward to the rest of the album!  Check it out below!
