THUNDERCAT – IT IS WHAT IT IS

Thundercat’s fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Drunk‘, is, in his own words: “about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that.  “It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek,” he continues, “but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand… some things just aren’t meant to be…

CHILDISH GAMBINO – 3.15.20

Childish Gambino’s new album ‘3.15.20’ was released with very little fanfare; just a blank website, a blank cover, and timestamps for most of the track titles.  In many ways it’s comparable to Kendrick Lamar’s 2016 release ‘untitled unmastered.’ in that it’s an incredibly worthwhile album in and of itself, even if it’s packaging appears intentionally…

CHILDISH GAMBINO – SUMMER PACK

The search for this year’s summer anthem is over thanks to one Childish Gambino.  ‘Summer Magic’ and ‘Feels Like Summer’ come as a double A side that couldn’t be further removed from last single ‘This Is America‘.   Two bright, breezy, nostalgia-filled gumdrops dropped out of nowhere on Wednesday, stream below via SoundCloud.

CHILDISH GAMBINO – THIS IS AMERICA

Although Donald Glover has previously alluded to not quite being finished with his Rap alter-ego Childish Gambino, new single ‘This is America’ came relatively out of the blue. Speculated to be the first single from an upcoming album, the track comments on the condition of black Americans in 2018, as does the Hiro Murai directed…

CHILDISH GAMBINO – AWAKEN, MY LOVE!

‘Awaken, My Love!’ represents a total departure from Childish Gambino’s previous output, but then again –  so has every new project from the Californian actor, writer, comedian and musician.  ‘Because The Internet‘ was an immersive, conceptual art piece that stemmed from his debut ‘Camp’.  After that came ‘Kauai‘ – on which he switched densely packed bars for light, airy…

CHILDISH GAMBINO – REDBONE

Childish Gambino follows up ‘Me And Your Mama’ [December 2] with a new track from upcoming album ‘Awaken, My Love!‘.  ‘Redbone’ certainly echoes the work of the late Prince, and confirms that the new album will see Glover take Childish Gambino in a completely new direction.  Stream below via Spotify.

CHILDISH GAMBINO – ME AND YOUR MAMA

‘Me And Your Mama’ is the first track to come from Childish Gambino’s upcoming new album ‘Awaken, My Love!’, and it’s unlikely to be anywhere near what you might have expected.  Granted, Donald Glover has never been one to stand still, but the all-out Soul of ‘Me And Your Mama’ is just about as far…

LION BABE – TREAT ME LIKE FIRE

After the success of their debut EP and Childish Gambino-featured ‘Jump Hi‘, NYC duo Lion Babe release some updated visuals for ‘Treat Me Like Fire’.  The sultry sophistication of the video perfectly matches the smooth and understated track.  Stream below via YouTube.

CHILDISH GAMBINO – SOBER [VIDEO]

Childish Gambino drops the visuals for ‘Sober‘, one of the smoother tracks on his recent EP, ‘Kauai‘.  As evidenced by the ‘Sweatpants‘ video, CG just can’t resist being a bit weird in a diner, and his latest is no exception.  This time, he’s creeping a girl out by dancing around like Carlton Banks/those Dubstep robotics guys…

LION BABE – JUMP HI [FT. CHILDISH GAMBINO]

‘Jump Hi’, a soulful, funky number from Lion Babe [NYC duo Jillian Hervey & Lucas Goodman] features a guest verse from Mr. Glover himself, Childish Gambino.  The track features a funk drum and piano loop, working in horns, Hervey’s smooth vocals and a Nina Simone sample.  CG takes over just before the two minute mark, and sounds surprisingly good…
