281x211Riding the wave of being name-checked by Ghostface (alongside Billy Joel and Pink) in yesterday’s New York Times, knitwear-loving New York band Vampire weekend has released the first song from their forthcoming album Contra. (It comes out in January.) “Horchata” is a catchy little bit of fluff that rhymes the titular drink with “Balaclava,” and it certainly won’t stop people from comparing them to Paul Simon at every turn. But that’s OK, because near the end? It erupts into some serious orchestral bliss. It’s available as a free download from their official site; there’s an embed after the jump. More »

buydownloadkillTomorrow’s release-date schedule is pretty glutted with albums that—gasp!—might get people to actually spend money on music, from Madonna’s latest greatest-hits collection to new albums by the spunky likes of Miranda Lambert and Paramore. In order to help you navigate through this week, might I suggest a friendly game of Buy/Download/Kill, in which each album receives one of the three fates outlined by the game’s title? My personal preferences after the jump. More »

ghostfaceThe first single from Ghostface’s upcoming The Wizard Of Poetry—which is apparently his R & B album—has come out, and it’s a super-Autotuned jam (with vocals by a very digitally tweaked Raheem DeVaughn) that sounds enough like the T-Pain jams all over the radio to make me think that it might break through and make a bit of a dent in the pop world. It’s no “Back Like That,” but hey, what is. [Def Jam] More »

ghost-jester-cropGhostface’s new album is going to be more of an R & B record, thanks in large part to the personal growth he’s experienced since he first burst on the scene with the Wu-Tang Clan: “I don’t sell crack, yo. I ain’t movin’ no bricks or none of that other shit. I ain’t shoot nobody in like…since the early 90’s, man. How long you gonna be 40 years old and actin’ like you still sellin’ cracks and you on the block and you doin’ this and you doin’ that when times is more serious, man. We in a fuckin’ recession, B! Ain’t nobody gettin’ no money, man!” [Unkut via bg5000] More »

Holy crap, is that really a song from the eternally delayed Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2? It is! (And it’s very NSFW, which is why I waited until now to post it.) More »
