Cadence Weapon Samples Grimes On New Track

“88” is the latest track from the whip-smart Edmonton rapper/producer (and former critic) Cadence Weapon and the first taste from his forthcoming album Hope In Dirty City.

New Hello, Blue Roses – “Shadow Falls”

Dan Bejar makes a move, we’re gonna write about it. Hence the love for his project with Heartbreak Scene covering obscure Canadian songwriter Mark Szabo, or cam-phone grade YouTube of solid new tunes. Hello, Blue Roses is something more substantial for Destroyer lovers, though; a 13-track album of material from Dan’s musical collaboration with hi… More »
