Published Apr 21, 2014The miraculous Easter/420 joint holiday (see what we did there?) has come to a close, and now we're back to plain old April. Luckily, something miraculous is still happening: the daily release of new music and videos. We have another roundup of some of the past week's highlights below to help hook you up with something great.
First off, Vancouver pop outfit BESTiE have shared their sunny eight-track record No Bad Days. With hints of tropical pop and Smiths-style arpeggios, BESTiE bring plenty of summer sunshine to any April day.
Next, Born Ruffians made a video for their track " Oh Cecilia," and brought in a special guest. Filmed with what appears to be a camera recovered from The Blair Witch Project, the video features dancing crossing guard Kathleen Byers, who busts a move to the groovy pop tune.
Hip-hop collective Young Money dropped a video for "Senile" off their recent Young Money: Rise of an Empire album. The video features Tyga rapping with masked dancers and smoking up with some hippies, Nicki Minaj hanging around some swings in a prison-esque playground and Lil Wayne spending some quality time with the family at dinner, composed primarily of mashed potatoes.
Ottawa garage punks New Swears have shared a video for their song "Midnight Lovers," proving once again that they know how to party with clips of silly string, pizza, skating, weed, toy store shenanigans and plenty of beer set to the noisy, upbeat track.
Pennsylvania punk quartet the Menzingers have shared their riff-rockin' album, Rented World, which finds the band looking to Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer and more for inspiration, leading to the foursome dialling up their amps and giving the record a more guitar-focused sound. Plenty of palm-muted pop-punk riffs, power chord charges and crunchy hooks make the perfect meal to satisfy anyone's rock craving.
Finally, New Orleans R&B singer August Alsina teamed up with Pusha T on new track "FML." Based on the title, you may have figured out that this isn't the cheeriest track on this roundup, but what it lacks in puppies and sunshine, it more than makes up for with a great, bass-heavy beat and plenty of Pusha.
