Wing Span – "Good Morning NY"


Wing Span will be dropping his first EP Growing Wings in August and even though I’m not very familiar with the emcee, I’m excited because the project is executive produced by up and coming producer Charlie Hilton. Here’s a promotional track over the beat from Cage’s “Good Morning”.

Wing Span said of this track:

I was testing on a new studio when i did this track, recorded it very quickly. I’m in love with the whole NY hip hop scene. I wanted to do like a live gritty, talk shit, but still be kinda lyrical at the same time type of track. This is nothing serious, “Growing Wings EP” coming soon executive produced by Charlie Hilton, look out for it.

MGMT – "Destrokk" Remastered


I read over at We Like It Indie that MGMT’s 2005 Time To Pretend EP (crazy how long it took those two to blow up off old material) was remastered and rereleased today. Buy that shit here. A lot of the time I don’t even notice the sound difference when post-90’s stuff gets remastered, but it’s nice to know that someone put the time/effort into making sure I get high quality sound.

MGMT – Destrokk (Remastered)

Tracklist:
Time to Pretend
Boogie Down
Destrokk
Love Always Remains
Indie Rokkers

New! Jay Reatard – "Wounded"


Jay Reatard’s new album Watch Me Fall comes out on August 4 (on vinyl) and August 18 (on cd and digital). The second promo MP3, entitled “Wounded,” wraps layers of Tall Dwarfs-ish acoustic guitar around a typically complex Jay song structure. In two and a half minutes it builds to an ironically celebratory refrain. We challenge you to get this one out of your head after listening to it a couple of times. via Matador Records
