Maps & Atlases - "Remote & Dark Years" Music Video

Quirky Chicago rockers Maps & Atlases decided to just have fun and destroy a car while filming their latest music video for "Remote & Dark Years." The track, off their recent release Beware and Be Grateful, demonstrates the group's toning down of the weird. On the LP, they keep the quirky slightly more in check, opting for a poppier sound, and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. What do you think?

Jay-Z vs. The Glitch Mob

Carlos Serrano, the mashup artist behind the great Adele vs. Daft Punk mix, has done it again. This time, Jay-Z's "99 Problems" is laid over The Glitch Mob's "Fortune Days". The rap classic and the glitch masters make quite the super group!

Passion Pit - "Take A Walk"

Passion Pit has dropped the first single from their highly anticipated sophomore release, Gossamer, out July 24th. While the track keeps the synth-heavy feel of their debut, there is definitely some exploration of new sounds going on. They have also announced a string of tour dates to accompany the release.

Brother Ali - "Not A Day Goes By"

Brother Ali, one of the finest members of Rhymesayers Entertainment, the label that is home to Atmosphere, Grieves, Blueprint, and many more, has released a hard hitting new video. The single, "Not A Day Goes By," off an album to be released later this year, shows a new, heavier side to Ali. Especially since his last work was the tender, soulful, The Bite Marked Heart EP, this is definitely a new direction for the MC. Ali may be Muslim, but he goes HAM on this one.

Kanye West - "Lost In The World" Music Video

Kanye West sure loves his strobe lights. Almost two years after releasing his acclaimed fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, West has teamed up with filmmaker Ruth Hogben to make a video for "Lost In The World." The track features samples Bon Iver's "Woods." In typical Kanye fashion, this isn't your normal rap video. The clip is black and white, featuring moving buildings, dancers, and a floor of mirrors. Enjoy!
