Earl Sweatshirt- WHOA feat. Tyler the Creator (Hip Hop)

Earl Sweatshirt is back with another video, this time reminding us why we fell in love with Odd Future in the first place. The video shows a group of misfit friends just having fun. As always, Earl Sweatshirt's lyrics are impeccable. If you're not used to his music, I strongly recommend the lyric video. Maybe it'll establish or develop the bond that most fans show for the rapper. Although no set release date or title is available, one is coming. Until then, look for WOLF by Tyler the Creator hitting shelves 4/2. Thanks for bringing scrawny back Earl, we almost got played out.

Laura Marling- Where Can I Go? (Indie Folk)

Sounds Like: Mumford &Sons, Cat Power

The ever-so peaceful songstress has returned with another song, "Where Can I Go?". Laura greets, listeners with her slow, gentle touch at first and grows in folk passion as the song progresses. A reflection of how beautiful the synchronization between vocals and guitars can truly be. Look for Laura Marling's fourth album,  Once I Was An Eagle to be released on 5/27.

The Purist- Jealousy feat. Danny Brown (Hip Hop)

The hero, Danny Brown, strikes again. He teams up again with producer, the Purist, for the light head banger "Jealousy" off of Tr-ill EP. The 16-bit video gives Danny Brown fans a slight taste of raunchy we've grown to know and love along with lyrics at the bottom, for the full hip hop experience. In case you're wondering, yes, it is a Notorious B.I.G. sample.

For more, check out The Purist, Tr-ill EP.

Dizzy Wright- Maintain feat. Joey Bada$$ (Hip-Hop)

Dizzy Wright presents a funky new track with the infamous Joey Bada$$. This is the first time the two have collaborated and released work, but if you love hip hop, you might love this song. The Download link is below:

Wavves "Demon to Lean On" (Surf Rock)

Sounds Like: Best Coast, Beach House, The Dum Dum Girls

The California band is back for the fourth time, with their new album Afraid of Heights releasing 3/26. This is the video to the third single for the upcoming album. Wavves mixes well with any given sunny day. Try it if you don't believe me. The band has consistently put out unique (mostly trippy) exciting work.

If you're interested check out some of there other standout songs: Poor Lenore (song), Nodding Off (song), King of the Beach (album)

Hurts- Sandman

In this haunting tune about our favorite mythical creeper, HURTS frontman Theo Hutchcraft lays down some serious vocals. The track flows fantastically and the chorus,which features a boys choir, only gets better the more you listen. Check it out for yourself

50 Cent - We Up( ft. Kendrick Lamar and Kidd Kidd)

Looks like 50 cent is back, and he might just last. This smooth track, featuring K-Dot, Kidd Kidd, and plenty of synth, is a fun jam that's sure to get a few replays on the summer playlist.
