Terius Nash – “Wake Me When It’s Over”

This morning, Terius Nash (who's dropping The-Dream moniker, at least for a moment, anyway) teased his forthcoming 1977 with a stream of the album's first song, "Wake Me When It's Over." It's a slow-building cut that effortlessly sweats big hooks, so it's like any other Dream song. Which is to say that it's glorious. (A… More »

The-Dream – “Murderer” Video

"Murderer", the new song from airy R&B auteur The-Dream, is a breathy Auto-Tuned reverie, and it doesn't sound the slightest bit violent, title notwithstanding. The song shows up in Colombiana, the new movie where Zoe Saldana does a whole lot of gun-pointing, and the track's video doubles as a Colombiana trailer. It even ha… More »

The-Dream – “Body Work” & “Fuck My Brains Out”

R&B leading light/libido The-Dream is back with the full-album followup to his Love trilogy this fall, titled The Love, IV (Diary Of A Mad Man).

Giggs – “Hard 3style”

Giggs is the UK rapper whose gigs have become nearly impossible to catch on account of how interesting the UK police find his extra-curricular activities. As it goes, copious references to gangsta life pepper his tracks and track titles, as on "Gangsta Hop," a cut featuring US dude du jour Waka Flocka Flame, appearing o… More »

jj Cover The-Dream

I opened my December Mix with "Let Them," a track that finds jj transforming T.I. and Akon into another example of their weirdly icy, warm Swedish pop. The song's also supposedly showing up on their forthcoming Kill (or jj kills or jj fucking kills, a mixtape set to appear, appropriately, on Christma… More »

Kanye Dark Twisted Fantasy Leaking, Pre-Order Up

When not beefing with Bush or showing us his bushy beef, Kanye West makes music. The Bon Iver-guesting "Monster" has been floating around for awhile. You've also maybe watched the 35-minute "Runaway" video. You'll find "All Of The Lights" on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, too. This one won't take… More »

The-Dream @ Good Units, NYC 6/29/10 & “Trilogy” Video

After a titanic weekend in NYC, the only plan I had for this week was to gently massage my legs and liver with a few days of maximum meditation. Then Wavves started tweeting about his scheduled appearance at last night's FADER summer issue release party at Good Units in midtown: "special,More »
