Black Lips’ new single from this year’s Arabia Mountain features the Lips as a group of corrupt cops.
This weekend Grant Park will host the 20th anniversary celebration of Lollapalooza in Chicago. Whether or not you are going to make it to the festivities you can still rock out with this mix, kindly presented by Spin. Artists include Black Lips, Lykke Li, Foster The People, Ratatat, Titus Andronicus, Jay Electronica, Beirut and more.
Chicago duo The Hood Internet like pop, rap, r+b, indie and rock. And they like it all at the same time. Birdman and Washed Out, Jamie Foxx and Röyksopp, Drake and Beach House, you get the idea. Download or stream the mixtape.
This week: Wood’s continue with more lo-fi magic, Brooklyn’s Ford + Lopatin synthesize and stimulate, Battles’ first album without their frontman (still good!), Mark Ronson gets Black Lips polished (for them), Arctic Monkeys continue their journey with a more serious sound.
