Houston, TX is the place to be June 2nd & 3rd for the Free Press Summer Fest: The Avett Brothers, Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson, Primus, Flaming Lips, Afrojack, Major Lazer, Best Coast, Danny Brown, Shabazz Palaces, Diplo, JEFF The Brotherhood and lots more.
The latest one off Danny Brown’s fantastic XXX is commercial hip-hop hatin’ track “Radio Song” (there’s some irony in that title). A deluxe version of XXX is out today on iTunes with three new tracks and “Grown Up”, another new track, will be available free online on March 20th.
OK, the lineup for this year’s Primavera Festival is outrageous: A$AP Rocky, AraabMUZIK, Atlas Sound, Beirut, Björk, Black Lips, Danny Brown, Death Cab For Cutie, Death Grips, Dirty Beaches, Girls, Grimes, Hype Williams, Japandroids, Justice, Liturgy, Mazzy Star, Melvins, Napalm Death, Neon Indian, OFF!, Real Estate, Refused, SBTRKT, Sharon Van Etten, Spiritualized, The Cure, The Drums, The Rapture, The War On Drugs, The xx, Trash Talk, Washed Out, Wavves, Wilco, Yo La Tengo and about a hundred other bands.
Das Racist’s Himanshu Suri, aka Heems, drops Nehru Jackets which features guest spots from Kool A.D., Danny Brown and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Childish Gambino, Action Bronson, Fat Tony and more.
Detroit’s Danny Brown is in wicked form for this clip directed by current buzz MC A$AP Rocky. The track and video both have a serious 90s thing going on, probably because these guys were coming up then. And by coming up I mean grade school.
Collaborative release Black and Brown hit the stores last year but the video is just now out. The Detroit MCs are charismatic, but terrible movie patrons.
