Get the Latest from Kvelertak, Nardwuar, Shotgun Jimmie and More in Our Music/Video Roundup
Published Mar 25, 2013Another week, another pile of album streams, singles, and videos to keep you in the new music loop. We've compiled a list of this week's Music/Video highlights below, but the releases keep coming, so keep a cursor over our Music/Video section for even more new material.
Norway's Kvelertak gave us an extra early preview of their upcoming sophomore album, Meir, last month with the release of a music video for "Bruane Brenn," and now they've decided to up the ante by making the entire album available for streaming a week early. Kvelertak singer Erlend Hjelvik promises that this album "is going to blow your brains out."
This week, Nardwuar met with Snoop Dogg once again (albeit as his alter ego, Snoop Lion) for Nardwuar the Human Serviette vs. Snoop Lion. Sneak a peek at Snoop's nostalgic side as the two talk about their first interview together and Snoop's appreciation for dolls (including a very special blow-up one).
Jim Kilpatrick, operating under his Shotgun Jimmie moniker, is gearing up for a March 26 release date for his latest folk-pop solo album, Everything, Everything. The upcoming release offers 16 tracks on which Jimmie "sings the joys of love, and travel, and sunny climates," but why wait? You can listen to the album now.
Despite the fact that Morrissey is temporarily out of commission, a demo tape from the Smiths' early days, dubbed The Pablo Cuckoo Tape, has been uncovered. The tape offers 40 minutes of material from a rehearsal recorded before the band's self-titled debut and shows off tracks like "Reel Around the Fountain," "Hand in Glove," and "These Things Take Time" in their rawest form.
Last on this weeks round up is Kendrick Lamar's remix of "Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe." After a recent short preview, the whole track has been released; it still uses the original Boom Clap Bachelors sample, but includes new verses and includes Jay-Z.
These are just a few of the new releases we've seen this week, and there are more to come, so make sure you take a look at our Music/Video section for even more new music.
