New-ish Music: “Never Catch Me,” Flying Lotus & Kendrick Lamar (2014)

This song is so cool. I love the production, particularly the seamless progression from one section to another. All the more reason to put Flying Lotus’s next album on my calendar.

"You’re Dead!" will be out on Oct. 7.

New Music: “Merlot,” Down 2 Earth feat. Kehlani (2014)

Gems like this remind just how beneficial it is to follow folks on Soundcloud and to let the stream play freely every now and then.

This one is a new track by Oakland trio Down 2 Earth. I think it’s Kehlani's vocals and the Amy Winehouse sample that make me fall in love. But if the rest of their upcoming LP “Wildfire sounds anything like this, I’m sure we’ll all be very pleased.
