[420 PLAYLIST] The Sights And Sounds Picks Their Favorite Stoner Tracks

  Happy 4/20 everyone! The only date in the calender year where everyone who doesn’t smoke weed claims to and we all go along with it. National Stoner Day, as it’s infamously touted, April 20th has become a counterculture holiday that is celebrated in a haze of glory the world over. Shit, I’m celebrating right […]

[ELECTRO/SOUL] Gramatik ft. Raekwon and Orlando Napier – “Native Son” (Free Download)

Gramatik Coachella_zpsyiuojjml

  Late nights are nothing new to me. I’ve long since made friends with the moon and the stars shine to illuminate my desktop. The world moves a little slower at night and Earth’s vibrations slip under their covers and settle into a deeper rhythmic syncopation. Naturally I need my music to follow suit. I’ll […]

[FUTURE/R&B] LION BABE – “Wonder Woman”

[FUTURE/R&B] LION BABE - "Wonder Woman"

  Combine the sexy female empowered vibe of Destiny’s Child, Survivor, with a sultry-smooth Erykah Badu tone, finished off with a head bopping Pharrell induced mood (who helped produce the track) and you have the new track by LION BABE, “Wonder Woman”. If you’re not familiar with LION BABE they are a male and female […]

[DARK POP] Drake – Furthest Thing (Yaarrohs Cover)

anne ma

 Photo Credit Anna Marcell. You saw me there in downtown Saigon, shouting. At a wall. All sorts of weird shit. If I have a defense, it’s that I looked up from thoughts that fired pieces of me out the fringes of a frown. They were all over the walkway. And it was goddamn stressing. All […]

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Earl Sweatshirt Releases Surprise Album + Catch Him Live In Chicago

earl-sweatshirt

  I’m officially starting to feel old. The youngest member of the eclectic Odd Future troupe is now of legal drinking age (like that’s stopped him in the past), and that can only mean that Earl Sweatshirt‘s live shows will be even more outrageous than in the past. Bursting onto the hip-hop scene circa 2011, […]

towkio

  Collaboration is defined as working with others to do a task and to achieve shared goals. With the advent of the internet, it’s clear that this seems to be happening more and more lately. It’s not that people weren’t working together or achieving shared successes before the internet, plenty of that happened I’m sure. […]

[HIP-HOP] OSKA FARO – SHOES

  As this is my first entry of the year in the Hip-Hop arena, I’m feeling a bit vulnerable. My Top Hip-Hop of 2014 list was my first true voyage into the depths and subtleties of this expansive, ever-evolving genre. It was a challenge, but one that I feel I took a great deal of […]

  We all know that after New Years we typically have certain things we’re trying to do to change ourselves for the better. Well, have you ever thought to include dancing?!

[DARK R&B] Matthew Young – Love Blind

Matthew Young

  Hands flat against the wall behind our bed frame.. Absolutely no inhibition; vision censorship. All I needed was one night; but I want them all. The heightened sensation of your breath against my skin, the way my toes curl when you say my name, repeatedly. The patterned friction between our hips moving to the […]
