The "New Shit" Radar sept 2013

Earl Sweatshirt featuring RZA "Molasses"
After a few careful listens to our most anticipated release of the year, we've determined "Molasses" to be the standout banger of the moment, and one of the few jams on Doris that rivals "Stapleton" in its wonky lopsidedness.

Palehound "Drooler"
It's almost embarrassing how easy it is to get Palehound songs firmly stuck in one's head. The two songs that Pitchfork have reviewed so far ("Drooler" and "Pet Carrot") have been battling for brain-space consumption since about 2 weeks ago. "Drooler" usually ends up winning.

Nelly featuring Nicki Minaj & Pharrell "Get Like Me"
Dope summer banger totally swept under the rug. Y'all fucked up on this one.

Mac Demarco "Young Blood"
If this is in fact a new song (as opposed to a leftover from the sessions from one of his 2 previous albums), then Demarco might be planning to revert back to the wackiness of the Rock N Roll Nightclub LP as opposed to staying along the bummer summer path we heard in Mac Demarco 2. We're also confused about this Adult Swim singles-club thing (curated with a decently impressive selection of artists). Is it free downloads only, or are there some 7-inches floating around somewhere? Can someone Google this for us? We're too busy. Time is money.

Connections "Miller's Grove"
This isn't that new, but whatever...

Swearin' "Watered Down"
Not nearly as watered down as the song title might suggest. P.S. We met the singer girl and we're happy to report she's both v.chill and v.friendly. ("v." is code for "very.")

Tony Molina "Breakin Up"
Tony's follow-up to Dissed and Dismissed (from February of this year) will be released via a 7-inch club from Matador called "Singles Going Home Alone." It's not hard to fit 6 Tony Molina songs onto a 7-inch.

Jackson Scott "Sandy"
He's possibly a douchebag, but we like his album anyway. Weirdo lofi shit.

south park marathon

Comedy Central has (possibly) been airing a marathon consisting of every episode (that they're legally allowed to show) of South Park, which has lead to some upsetting daytime censorship, but it's the thought that counts.

Spring 2013 was just a bit more of a bummer than usual, since there's been no new South Park so far this year. This is the longest we've gone without our dear friends. Tomorrow marks the start of their only 10-episode run (unless one of these happened at some point between season 1 and 4) which is possibly leading to the release of The Stick of Truth on November 19th.

Get excited!

Robert Pollard's 50 Best Songs (and the sequel)

"Great job" to the blogger dude who writes for "Trust the Wizards". One of their writers is familiar enough with Robert Pollard's immense solo catalog that he decided to do the world an equally immense solid favor by posting his 50 favorite Robert Pollard songs. Most of the choices are actually pretty badass, leading us to believe this list may be somewhat accurate.

This happened about 2 weeks ago. The blog post was apparently such a big deal and became popular enough that they went ahead and gave the blog post its own sequel just a few days ago, aptly titled "50 More Robert Pollard Songs That You Need In Your Life."

Yeezus BeezusBC interview

Hear Yeezus's new voice. He sounds weird and different, and not like the classic Kanye West that we've grown to love over the past 10 years. Something in his voice just doesn't sound the same, but the same words are coming out. It's still him. But his voice sounds weird. Maybe he had surgery on his sinuses. I heard that can oddly change the tone of people's voices. Or maybe he has the sniffles.

In the "Part 1" video posted below, Yeezus talks about Michael Jackson being his biggest influence, and apparently he also addresses Kendrick Lamar's verse in "Control" but I guess I missed that part. It goes by quickly though...
