Published Jul 20, 2009Here at Exclaim! we aren't about lazily waiting for the "coolest" new bands to send us their singles; that's just not our style. Instead, the Exclaim! writing staff is out there, searching far and wide for the music they love best so they can compile it in our Click Hear. Every day we choose something new, and this past week in Click Hear was a particularly good one.
Up first is a taste of Vancouverite Cameron Reed's new project Babe Rainbow and its so-called "surf-step," a single off the debut album of R&B's newest "it" girl Melanie Fiona and the newest track from Virginia hip-hop duo Clipse, who are putting out their Till the Casket Drops in September.
Also, we have a low-key, melodic, live version of "Queen Jane" by Barzin and a 42-track mash-up done right by electro-cumbia Argentinean Villa Diamante.
