Top 50 of 2016: Part 2 (40-31)

40. Weezer – The White Album Release date: April 1, 2016  Just like the good ol’ days when Weezer would name their albums after a colour, they’ve also returned to their earlier sound of upbeat four-chord rock and unbeatable hooks. It’s not as good as their pre-Red Album work, but it’s right up there with their 2014 record Everything Will Be Alright in the End. White Album is a record that goes down easy, doesn’t make you question their sanity (too much), and can be blasted with the windows down in the middle of the…

In No Particular Order: March 18, 2016

Happy Friday! More specifically, Happy New Music Friday (and if we want to go even further, Happy International Hangover Day)!

Head to Baauer’s website to pre-order Aa…

Baauer – Kung Fu ft. Pusha T & Future

(If you like: Diplo, Future, RL Grime)  Remember the “Harlem Shake”? Well the man behind the viral hit/dance-craze thinks it’s “corny and annoying as fuck”, which is why Baauer is excited to release his upcoming album Aa and move forward with his career. In fact, the early trapstep producer is embracing the popularity of the new trap/hip-hop genre with his latest hit “Kung Fu”, featuring big name hip-hop stars Pusha T and Future. Glossy synths, snare-clapping beats, and Pusha’s Auto-tuned vocals helps “Kung Fu” follow the cookie-cutter recipe for a club favourite. Aa drops…
