In anticipation of the long-awaited fourth season of The Boondocks, Adult Swim has released a new Killer Mike and The Alchemist’s collaboration “The Boonies,” taken from the forthcoming The Boondocks mixtape. The song marks the first time Killer Mike and The Alchemist have had the opportunity to collaborate.

The Boondocks mixtape will feature tracks from Two-9, Reese, Chevy Woods, Roscoe Dash, Skeme, Problem, Jon Connor, Earth Gang, Smoke DZA, Lil Herb, Sean Falyon, Tuki Carter and more. The project, hosted by DJ Drama, Don Cannon, and Trendsetter Sense, will be released April 16th in conjunction with Complex before the new season of The Boondocks, which premieres on Adult Swim on Monday April 21st at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Jacques Greene is excited to share the music video for “No Excuse“. The song will appear on his forthcoming Phantom Vibrate EP, a three track club 12″ of his most sophisticated songs to date, due April 28th via LuckyMe. The EP explores themes of human interaction with technology as he embarks on a new hardware show and string of headline launch events in the three cities that helped model his signature blend of techno, house & contemporary R&B: Brooklyn, Montreal & London.

“When it comes to visuals, Glass Gang further their relationship with NY-based director Taylor Antisdel, who shot their debut video “Time.” It’s an exercise in monochrome minimalism, with long shots lingering on Romanian actress/model Alexandra Chelaru as she slowly consumes a suspicious bubbling black liquid. Antisdel used similar motifs in his previous video for the band but Chelaru’s expressionless face adds a sense of unease not present in “Time.” Sleek, stylish and disturbing, “Waves” is a video that’s hard to forget.” - BULLETT Media

unnamedA week ahead of her debut full length release, Mr Little Jeans is excited to stream the entire album, Pocketknife on Hype Machine.

A pocketknife is one of the most utilitarian tools you can possess. “It is small but has a million uses. It can open locks, cut ties and be used as a weapon or even for first aid,” says Monica Birkenes, aka Mr Little Jeans. Pocketknife also happens to be the title of the Norwegian chanteuse’s debut album, due out on Harvest Records in March of 2014. “I see it as an extension of yourself that symbolizes strength, intelligence and courage.” The titular inspiration for her record comes from a line in lead single, “Good Mistake,” which has already entered heavy rotation on KCRW, the preeminent taste making radio station in LA (where Mr Little Jeans now resides).

Pocketknife‘s operative metaphor extends to all her music: imbued with mystery and a dazzling interplay between shadow and light. Breathy vocals stab like equatorial sun rays that coexist with nocturnal synths. It’s been like this ever since Mr Little Jeans became a critically revered electro-pop diva a few years back. With a name nicked from a bit character in Wes Anderson’s Rushmore, she quickly elicited comparisons to Lykke Li and Charli XCX, but has carved out her own lane, blending Scandinavian cool with passionate lyrics. Spin raved that her music has “hooks from here to the Aurora Borealis, but [she] swathes them in dark-hearted mystery, bright synths lurking beneath her indelible voice.” The Guardian said her songs won’t escape their heads, calling her an “über-Kylie [Minogue] who writes her own material, has a hand in its production and can boast a clutch of songs better than anything Minogue has done in years.”
