Published Jul 12, 2010The first day of the a new workweek is always hard to get through, so wipe away the Monday blahs - or at least take them off your mind - by checking out a slew of new music. Visit the Exclaim! Click Hear section to help liven up your day with some of the latest in music streams, downloads and videos.
First up, we have some vintage Kanye West featured in the Chitown-based Go Getters. Although the group recorded material, a proper album was never released until ten years ago when some of their lost tracks surfaced in the form of World Record Holder, which is now available for free download.
Ottawa's Male Nurse has released the aptly named, Song a Day for the First Half of the Year, and we also have the new Sum 41 single, "Scumfuck," from the soon-to-be-released Screaming Bloody Murder.
Next, catch up on what's new in Canada's eclectic music scene with Planet of the Tapes' latest mix, Brand New Waves, while Jens Lekman's almost-annual summer mix comes to us this week in the form of Summer In 3/4 Time, and you guessed it - it's all in 3/4 time.
And need a cute pick-up that will have you smiling in no time? Indie darlings She & Him are back with a new video for "Thieves" that references their throwback style with grainy black and white images. Also, Outkast's Big Boi goes it alone in the video for Sir Luscious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty's "General Patton."
Finally, thank god the Internet isn't "completely over," or else you'd never be able to check out Prince's "Laydown," off his Europe-only magazine-freebie album.
