King Krule unexpectedly releases a project with little to no warning (besides one Instagram post), called “A New Place to Drown. Compared to his past work, this album definitely shows an experimental side with new electronic/hip hop beats. His previous albums had a more classic rock, bluesy, reggae blend. If you’re a KK fan, it definitely takes a little getting used to. You’re thoughts?
Alongside the album, KK also released an art book and a mini documentary that speaks to the direction they went on this one. You can check them out here. Watch the documentary below.

King Krule formerly known as Zoo Kid has been a little quite since their last release 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. Their lead singer Archy Marshall, opened up an Instagram yesterday (Finally. He had a Facebook account but who checks Facebook?) with the announecment “ANP2D coming soon…”.
There’s no other info on what ANP2D is or when it will be out, but KK has a tendency to stay under the radar until it’s go time. We’ll keep you posted.

Sango released the third and final installment of his Da Rocinha series. Aptly titled Da Rocinha 3, it combines hip-hop sounds with Brazilian funk like its preceding parts. The producer reveals that the album “is about keeping the funk carioca roots true and paying homage to the ones that helped start it. I want to respect and show Rocinha in a positive light with this record while staying true to my sound.” If you’re feeling the record, make sure to cop the entire release for $1 for all 19 tracks via Bandcamp.

Taking influence from 1960’s Thai funk – their name literally translates to “Engine Fly” in Thai – Khruangbin is steeped in the bass heavy, psychedelic sound of their inspiration, Tarantino soundtracks and surf-rock cool. The Texan trio is formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums.
Debut album ‘The Universe Smiles Upon You’ is out 6th November 2015.
This week’s Throwback Thursday is track called “Sweet Disposition” by alt rock band Temper Trap. Its one of those songs that you’re vaguely familiar with but may not be able to place where you’ve heard it. Chances are you’ve probably stumbled across this gem from the 2009 chick flick 500 Days of Summer.
If you’re a Temper Trap fan we’ve got great news for you. The band took to their Facebook page to announce that they are putting out a new album some time this year.
I just came across another great band coming out of Portland Oregon, Rare Monk, who recently released a track called “Warning Pulse”. Apparently it made it’s way to an Urban Outfitters playlist but now has an official release. The song comes from their upcoming self-titled EP that doesn’t seem to have a release date yet. It’s a nice way to end your day with a chill vibe.
