Blueprint's latest single, "Respect the Architect", makes a case for his place in the hip-hop pantheon. It's hard to argue with him when he drops lines like, "the rhyme is my funky drummer". Sublime.



Respect the Architect releases April 22nd via Weightless Recordings.

Sharon Van Etten once again tweaks her signature sound just the right amount.

Slightly more relaxed and groovy than the biting tracks off 2012’s Tramp, Sharon Van Etten recently dropped “Taking Chances”, the first single off her forthcoming album, Are We There?, due out May 27. Sadly and soulfully, “Taking Chances” doesn’t desert her signature dreamy style, but the song has a slick production quality to it and sharp, yet subtle indie-pop sensibilities. It’s a lot less sparse than usual and quite a bit more atmospheric, which is exciting considering Van Etten is skilled at slight tweaks to her distinct sound. She’ll also be touring extensively throughout the next few months.

Canadian artist Owen Pallett returns with his latest album In Conflict on May 13th via Domino Records.

“The Riverbed” is the record’s first single, a throbbing slice of utterly gorgeous orchestral electro intensity. Pallett says the new album “is meant to approach ‘insanity’ in a positive way, emphasis on the ironizing scare quotes around singular notions of insanity.”
