Twin Shadow- Old Love/New Love

9/19/2013 10:37am EDT
“What am I supposed to say? An old love called me yesterday.” Even if you are not a “gamer” you might become one after the release of Grand Theft Auto V. The soundtrack features tracks by Flying Lotus, Tyler the Creator, A$AP Rocky,  Wavves, and now Twin Shadow. Not exactly sure how an upbeat song about a conflicting past lover made it’s way into a a video game, but it works. It might be on repeat for hours and who knows maybe it’ll make your gamer skills go on overdrive..

Active Child : Subtle

How is it possible for Active Child’s ethereal like cries to not make you want to lose your shit. It’s not. It’s simply impossible, and the man behind Active Child, Patrick Grossi, proves it once again with his latest track, “Subtle”.  Mikky Ekko joins him for a track jammed of eighties synth vibes that are just so dreamy.  Grossi’s heavenly yearns against Mikky Ekko’s catchy pop hooks, make this track pure gold. And I am by no means comparing Ekko to Michael Jackson, but can you not hear a little Jackson or Timberlake?? You can find “Subtle” on  Active Child’s upcoming Vapor EP, due Oct...

A$AP Rocky
Taking a sample from a Brittney Spears song and shoving it in with A$AP Rocky? Yes, it can gracefully work and still sound hood enough.
