My band has made it when...

MP3 ROUNDUP: Main Attrakionz, Clams Casino, The Dandy Warhols, Gunplay, Great Bloomers

Main Attrakionz/Jel/Zachg - cLOUDLIFE EP

What if you took the stoned, sleepy raps of Main Attrakionz and did a “mix-up” with the complex and occasioinally abrasive music of cLOUDDEAD affiliates Jel and Zachg? You would get cLOUDLIFE, which is why we're here. If you're the kind of person that likes mayo with their french fries, you are a disgusting person, but you might like the odd pairing of rising cloud rap with experimental noise-hop.


Clams Casino - “Swervin'” Remix (Instrumental)

Clams Casino - Swervin' Remix by PinBoardBlog

Producer Clams Casino is continuing his reign over breathy soundscapes that make you feel like you've been enveloped by the ocean, with his newest instrumental “Swervin’ Remix,” released yesterday over Twitter.  It’s what you’ve come to expect from Clams, which means you’ll only be disappointed if you hate yourself and everything beautiful in the world.

The Dandy Warhols - “Well They're Gone”

The Dandy Warhols - "Well They're Gone" by inertiamusic

Just when you thought that the Dandy Warhols were relegated to the indie rock bargain bin, they come back with a surprisingly mature and confident work. This is a song written by a band that has finally accepted that both their youth and glory days may be behind them, and the result is quite heartening.

Gunplay - “Jump Out”

Gunplay - Jump Out by Fresh Grind

Seeing as it's Friday, we would be loathe to leave you without a track you can get rachet as fuck to. Recent Maybach Music signee Gunplay drops some of the most intelligent and gleefully violent wordplay we've heard all week, over a relentless instrumental comprised of gunshots and screams and “Goldeneye” reminiscent patches. Sounds like something Seal Team 6 listened to before capping Osama.

Great Bloomers - “Something More”

After three long years, Toronto’s Great Bloomers are back with a new lineup, a new sound, a new record deal with Dine Alone, and a new song from said deal, which you can stream below. The layers of instrumentals allow Lowell Sostomi’s country-tinged vocals to shine, and together they create a very rich and organic sound. The track was produced by Chris Stringer (Ohbijou, Timber Timbre) and engineered by the Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner.
