Perfect tune for a Throwback Thursday here. I just got done watching Southland Tales and I gotta ask, why has no one ever told me about this film? I've never heard of it before, but it is a B-listers wet dream. I'll be honest, one of the more entertaining parts of the film is seeing all of the familiar actors who show up in every scene, and you're just kind of sitting there the whole movie going, holy shit, I can't believe that chick is in this movie. It's a good watch if your bored or zoned out, and don't ruin it by looking anything up about this film beforehand. But yeah, when the credits rolled, "Tender" by Blur kicked in and it reminded me of simpler times...

Let's be honest, the weekend officially starts on Thursday. Unless you're an alcoholic, then the weekend never really ends. Haha, ha, hmmm. Anywho, FIDLAR just released a new video for a more upbeat version of their familiar jam "West Coast" and it has everything you need to kick the weekend into gear. I'm talking booze, girls, tattoos and just all out debauchery, not to mention a pretty kickass sound that will get your feet moving right when the distorted guitar riff gets going. This new song will be featured on their forthcoming second album Too due out September 4th. Also, the band is making a second video for this track that will be completely made by the fans as a thank you for their support. Head on over to their website for more details. Digging the "Bro Hymn" vibe in the beginning of the video too...

Just heard this track playing in the background while I was watching the latest episode of Mr. Robot where Eliot was going through his trippy dream sequence while he was doped out on heroin, and had to stop what I was doing to find out who was singing this perfectly tripped-out tune. Turns out it is the song "Queen" by Perfume Genius, and what a perfect track it was. Check it out below and be sure and listen to the rest of their album Too Bright. I know that is the first thing I'm gonna do tonight...

So few artists these days seem to be able to paint such a powerful picture with just their words, and yet Hopsin seems to do it time and time again with each new song he releases. And his new track "FLY" is yet another prime example of just how influential words can be. He seems to have the ability to articulate what is right in front of our faces but just seems so blatantly obvious that it can't be real. In short, you do you. Stream the new track below and see for yourself. New album Pound Syndrome drops July 24th.

How about a little nostalgia to kick off this fine music Monday? Slightly Stoopid recently released a new music video for their everlasting jam "The Prophet", and if this one doesn't put you in full summer mode, I'm not sure if anything will. Written by the band’s co-frontman/bassist/guitarist Miles Doughty when he was 16 years old, “The Prophet” started as an early collaboration with the late Bradley Nowell of Sublime, while the group was signed to his Skunk Records. Coming full circle, the video for the song concludes with never-before-seen footage of a living room jam session with Doughty and Nowell. Nowell than recorded an early version of the song called “Ain’t No Prophet” which was released on Sublime’s posthumous Everything Under The Sun rarities box set. The composition was reimagined once again by Slightly Stoopid during their Meanwhile… Back At The Lab studio sessions. I gotta say, it's pretty cool to see the journey this song has been through as well as the band and all of the people they have met and influenced along the way. New album is available now.

How about a little throwback action on this fine Thursday just before we celebrate America's birthday this weekend. And what better way to do that than with a little J. Roddy Walston & The Business giving us the business with his modern rock classic "Don't Break The Needle." Doesn't it just make you want to throw back a few shots of whiskey and blow shit up? Looks like my weekend is all mapped out. Happy birthday Murica.

I was bored about 5 minutes ago so I decided to google "super chill video and song" to see what came up. After sifting through a few of the results I came across "Wondrous" from Ron Contour & Factor and I'll be honest, this one had me at papaya. Everything about this track, from the chill sample of Janis Ian's "Hair of Spun Gold" to the beekeeping suits in the video had exactly what I was looking for. I'm actually surprised this song didn't have a little more buzz about it when it first came out. All bee puns aside, I have to say that this mainstay of the Canadian hip-hop scene cured my bordeom, and for that I thank him...
