Portugal. The Man - "Evil Friends (Jake One remix feat. Danny Brown)"

I can't even...

TV On The Radio - "Million Miles (Official Video)"

Another video for you all. This one from a forthcoming album that seems poised to be good rather than one that's been out for a while and established just how fantastic it is...

Evening Hymns - "Arrows (Official Video)"

I can't speak highly enough of this record. Still wish it made the shortlist. While this isn't the image I had in my head when I first heard "Arrows" it certainly matches the music.

Botany - "Anchor"

With the school year looming, make sure you enroll in Botany. Full length's not until the end of October on the always great Western Vinyl, but you can put the first track in your syllabus playlist now.

Oddisee - "Lonely Planet"

Put down your "Europe By Backpack" guide and pick up this Lonely Planet instead... First single from the new Oddisee full-length, The Beauty In All.

Grand Analog - "The Great Rhyme Dropper (ft. Shad)"

Winnipeg peeps, don't miss out on the Modern Thunder release show at Union Sound Hall on Thursday August 22nd. For the rest of you, just don't miss out on Modern Thunder, the new album from Peg City expatriates Grand Analog. If you need convincing, peep the first single, featuring Shad.

Various - Two Syllables Volume Nine (First Word Records)

If you're up-to-date on Reductive Reviews, then names like Tall Black Guy, Souleance and Yosi Horikawa will be familiar to you even if the label First Word Records doesn't ring a bell or this is your first experience with the Two Syllables compilation series. Bookmark First Word Records because it's about to become your favourite new label if it wasn't already.

Blitz The Ambassador - "African In New York"

Found this one on Ghana Mixtapes last week. Of course I'm going to check out a track that seems like a Sting cover, and of course I'm gonna love it.

The Beatniks - "Wear Your Love Like Heaven"

Former Yellow Magic Orchestra members putting the magic in this Donovan cover. Not new, but new to me and maybe to you...

TorMiller - "Headlights"

There is just something about this dude's voice. I can't put my finger on it, but it reminds me of someone. Particularly when he hits the chorus. Listen for yourself and let me know if you figure it out!

Jimmy Fallon, Robin Thicke & The Roots - "Blurred Lines"

Happy Friday everyone. Enjoy the weekend. I'm off to Islendingadagurinn to enjoy Greg Arcade & his Rockin' Band, Oldfolks Home and the Bokononists at the stage I'm putting on tonight. The smile on my face will get wider, but this is what put it there.
