Published Mar 17, 2014This time of year, the weather can be unpredictable: one day, wool hats and thick coats are vital to one's survival; the next, gym shorts and T-shirts are back in style. One thing you can count on is the weekly wave of new music and videos to hit the web, and is our weekly custom, we've rounded up a few of the highlights below.
Rap veteran 50 Cent has given fans a taste of his upcoming record, Animal Ambition, due June 3. The new track takes a straightforward hip-hop approach and is the first single in a series of weekly releases that Fiddy will be dropping every Tuesday until May 20.
Next, New Brunswick's the Olympic Symphonium have shared their upcoming album Chance to Fate with their fans. Produced by Joshua Van Tassel, who's worked with the Great Lake Swimmers and David Myles, the album has a mellow folk-rock feel with some country and rock influences sprinkled throughout.
Teenaged Chicago rapper Chief Keef expressed his feelings towards rehabilitation with a new song called "Fuck Rehab," while Big Boi shared a new addition to his weekly mashup series. This time around, the Outkast rapper mixes his track "Lines" with A-ha's classic "Take on Me" to make "Lanes," which, like "Lines," features Phantogram and A$AP Rocky.
Finally, electro indie-pop quartet Pif Paf Hangover have shared their debut record, Curry Love. Across the album's 13 tracks, the Canadian four-piece dabble in dance punk and pop ballads with no shortage of electronic flourishes.
