Listen: New track from Tame Impala, "'Cause I'm a Man"

Release date on new album, Currents still forthcoming

Posted By on Sun, Apr 5, 2015 at 6:13 PM


Tame Impala, the beloved darling psychedelic rock project from Down Under helmed by multi-instrumental singer-songwriter Kevin Parker, has been working on new material and have so far leaked the seven-plus epic "Let It Happen."

Today, Parker & Co. have not only unleashed the first "official" single, "'Cause I'm a Man" that, along with "Let it Happen," will appear on the band's forthcoming third LP, but have revealed the title of said LP: Currents. Both songs were originally drafted out in planes, cars, hotels and homes following the completion of and tour behind 2012's well-regarded Lonerism, and were both written, performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Parker in Fremantle, Western Australia. The track sees its official release on Tues., April 7 through Interscope. No word yet on an official release date for Currents.

Take a listen to the falsetto cooing vocals and meandering instrumentals of "'Cause I'm A Man" below, and get excited...

Listen: Lundy, "PSA Part 2 (Lundy's America)"

Rising Tampa MC drops surprising, fresh debut single

Posted By on Thu, Mar 12, 2015 at 1:36 PM


Full disclosure: Lundy and I go back, like rode-the-same-bus-to-high-school back, but music you like is music you like. So, even as I strap on my truthful music blogger vest, it’s easy to share my enthusiasm for his debut track/video for "PSA Part 2 (Lundy's America)," which dropped earlier this week.

Last call: a big fat playlist of drinking songs

More than 30 songs about boozin' it up touch on a range of genres, from outlaw country to pop to hip hop and more; Spotify playlist included

Posted By and on Fri, Feb 27, 2015 at 3:34 PM

In honor of the drinking issue, new CL Contributor Timothy Boyson and I have brainstormed a booze-themed playlist — in sum, a bunch of songs about getting schnockered up, some of them rather well known, others not so much, and they touch on a range of genres — outlaw country, alt rock, hip hop, reggae rock, New Wave, folk, indie and mainstream pop, soul, electronica and even some vintage lounge sounds. For your convenience, I've included both a Spotify-produced playlist, and for those who aren't members, a straightforward list of the songs that are included on it. Cheers!

Chuck D talks Race, Rap, and Reality at Eckerd College

Posted By on Thu, Feb 26, 2015 at 12:14 PM


I could tell you that Chuck D is funnier than you might expect him to be. I could tell you that he is simultaneously a commanding presence and a humble man simply living out his plan. I could remind you that he does not mince his words and has very little problem speaking truth to power.

I wanted to show you Wednesday night’s Race, Rap, and Reality event but the powers that be wouldn’t allow it.

Blur announce first album in 12 years, The Magic Whip, share lyric video for "Go Out"

Damon Albarn and co. drop their eighth album on Apr. 28

Posted By on Thu, Feb 19, 2015 at 3:57 PM


Announced earlier today from a press conference in a London Chinese restaurant (happy New Year!), Blur will release their first album in 12 years, The Magic Whip, due out April 27 internationally and April 28 in the U.S.

Along with the announcement, they’ve released the lyric video to a new track “Go Out.” After a cursory listen, this sounds like what most would expect, and want, from a beloved mid-'90s Britpop band: a simple, repetitive hook sandwiched between sleepy vocals, loads of fuzzed-out feedback and an easily danceable beat that could find a nice home on terrestrial rock radio, or whatever’s left of it.

Watch/listen to “Go Out” and view the track list from The Magic Whip below:
