Listen: Big K.R.I.T. + A$AP Ferg - "Lac Lac"

Big K.R.I.T. offers up some more southern cooking as part of his "Week of K.R.I.T.", a song-a-day offering that runs until Sunday. Here he enlists A$AP Ferg over a mellow, throwback beat.

Watch: Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks - "Little Fang"


While altogether sonically different than an Animal Collective track, Avey Tare's "Little Fang" effortlessly exemplifies the frontman's ability to find rhythm in the most peculiar melodies. Also, +1 for the puppet (courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop). Enter The Slasher House is out April 8th via Domino Records. [Directed by Abby Portner]

De La Soul + J. Dilla - "Dilla Plugged In"

De La Soul deftly drop their definitive and effortless flows, trading bars over a slick J. Dilla beat. The result: wax on wax. Would you expect anything else from this classic pairing?

Watch: Real Estate - The Making Of Atlas


Check out studio footage of Real Estate's recording process for our current frontrunner for album of the year, Atlas (yes, we know it's only March).

Listen: Evian Christ - "Waterfall"

While fans of Joshua Leary should be no strangers to his hard-hitting, bass driven tracks, it appears as though his progression under the Evian Christ project is leaning towards more chaotic and industrial soundscapes. Unsurprisingly, the self-titled lead single off his upcoming Waterfall EP builds upon the undoubtedly influential work that led to Kanye West's Yeezus, a project in which Leary found himself contributing production. What emerges is an aggressive assault on the ears that represses any notions of Evian Christ's former tranquil beats, leaving a maelstrom of free-flowing and anarchic ideas. Waterfall is out March 17th on Tri Angle.
