M.I.A.’s third album should be released June 29, per a blimp over Coachella..

This time out Jack hooks up with The Dead Weather for “Gasoline”, which is previewed from the band’s second studio release, Sea Of Cowards, available everywhere May 11 via Third Man/Warner Bros. GET IT. also, check this perfomance of “Will There Be Enough Water?” live at Coachella 2010 below. Jack comes out from behind the kit for an excellent version of Horehound’s closing track.

Compass drops May 18 via WARP. get it.
Aloe Blacc – Take Me Back info buy it
we LOVE this. “Take Me Back” is the b-side to Aloe Blacc’s I Need A Dollar 12″. b-side??? if dude keeps it up he just may be able to pull one of these someday. dude needs a dollar, and dammit he’s earned it. so buy it!

“Cat and Mouse” is a nice little pop tune from Nikki and Rich’s Next Best Thing release.
lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground. cee-lo “wants you” to check out his new jam previewed on gilles peterson a couple days ago. soul dudes kings go forth go anti-clockwise killing it with a syrupy sweet curtis mayfield-y flow on “one day”. walk round town with your pants on the ground.
“A Million In the Morning” is new from Jay Electronica! the track is inspired by, and is the theme song, to the original motion picture of the same name, which is about some dudes trying to beat the World Record of going 123 hours without sleep. i could never do that.
