WATCH: Das Racist “Ek Shaneesh”

If you’ve been searching endlessly for the perfect mix between M.I.A. and Asher Roth… then I have a surprise for you! Enter: Brooklyn’s ecclectic trio, Das Racist.

Check out their video for “Ek Shaneesh” and commiserate with me that we’re unable to see them at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas. And for those of you lucky enough to see them… I want to be you.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Noah and the Whale – “Wild Thing”

So I can’t stop listening to this Noah and the Whale song…maybe because it goes with the weather here in LA today-that post rain crisp feel. Listen to the track “Wild Thing” below and if you love it like I do you can download it for free! Also, keep an eye out for their new album Last Night on Earth which is set to be released in March.

LISTEN: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – “Fire & Water”

ES&TMZ have released a new-ish song for your listening pleasure. I say new-ish because it wasn’t on the debut album but is actually from their iTunes session so if you were hoping that meant another album you are sadly mistaken. I really dig this song titled “Fire & Water”… it’s not too hippie eccentric like many of their songs it’s just chill and somewhat simple. It reminds me of The Band…modern day of course. Listen below!

NEWS: White Stripes Getting Back In the Studio

Well not technically a new album since they haven’t even been in the studio yet, but just the talk of this makes me want to pee my pants with excitement. Everyone knows I LOVE the White Stripes so I will probably be browsing the internet every day now of any possible news regarding this topic. According to an interview that Jack did with Vanity Fair (via Spin) he basically says that they have gotten all side projects done and out of the way…they are now ready get back into the studio (THANK YOU BABY JESUS). Jack: “We thought we’d do a lot of things that we’d never done: a full tour of Canada, a documentary, coffee-table book, live album, a boxed set,” he says. “It was one long project that took almost three years. Now that we’ve gotten a lot of that out of our system, Meg and I can get back in the studio and start fresh.” If this turns out to be false I will cry…for days…listening to “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.”
