Despite losing his major label deal with Interscope Records, the musical output of Chief Keef hasn't slowed down in the slightest. The young Chicago MC recently teamed up with Gucci Mane for an entire mixtape of collaborative material titled Big Gucci Sosa, which you can check out now.
Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt recently released the full version of a song titled "Rats," originally leaked in 2010. Referring to the initial leak as a "chopped and screwed short version," the updated track is still chock full of crude rhymes and dark, menacing production from Tyler, the Creator.
Vancouver rock'n'roll savant Johnny de Courcy has released a two-part cinematic experience for a pair of tracks from this year's upcoming Alien Lake. With themes revolving around the life and death of relationships, de Courcy once again teamed up with director Owen Ellis to create the conceptual music videos for the title track and "Wind Chimes."
Elsewhere, five-piece outfit Bart draw on a variety of genres with their succinctly titled debut EP, Bart by Bart. With influences ranging from pop and prog to psych rock, the group's sound carries an undeniable retro aesthetic.
Finally, St. John's singer-songwriter Amelia Curran continues to let her "knife-sharp" lyrics accent gorgeous instrumentation with her latest record, They Promised You Mercy. Following highly acclaimed past efforts such as 2010's Polaris-nominated and Juno Award-winning Hunter, Hunter, Curran's unique songwriting skills make for "a poised, focused, and consummate work."
