New Album From El-P and Killer Mike

by Justin Jacobs in

Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music, produced by El-P, was one of last year's best albums. In 2013 the dynamic duo have rechristened themselves Run The Jewels, and have just released a self titled album, which you can download on their website for free. If you are unconvinced by the price here is a video of the single "Banana Clipper" featuring the world famous, Big Boi. 

It's nice having something to knock Yeezus out of the rotation for awhile. 

Japandroids - Adrenaline Nightshift

The Japandroids are a two piece band out of Vancouver, Ontario. Their last album Celebration Rock was one of my favorite albums of last year, and one of the best rock albums of the last decade. I have a feeling in ten years, when I'm nostalgically looking back at about my late 20's, the soundtrack to my collective memories will probably be this song.

Dave Grohl loves Prince, because Prince is a badass. Here is a story about Dave getting to jam with Prince.
