Jack White is probably one of the best artists of our time, they’ll surely be talking about him for years to come and say: “Jack White one of best producers ever”. We have all heard and admire his work, from The White Stripes to his latest collaboration with Daniele Lupi & Dangermouse’s Rome. It is now time for him to explore a new genre, a mind bending one at that. Imagine someone took Mozart and The White Stripes, put them on a blender and put rap as the cherry on top.

With the help of Insane Clown Posse plus JEFF the Brotherhood comes this new song called “Leck Mich Im Arsch” (Lick My Ass) it was recently uploaded to Jack White’s online website for his record label Third Man Records. Enjoy!

With vocals that seem to mimic those of Fiona Apple at a first listen , this lady delivers a song that’s a bittersweet treat;  a ghost- like sugarcoated voice with a bitterly somber core yet with a playful and funky sounds. It has a sense of mischief but it’s  her passive girlish voice that holds the entire song navigating thoroughly across a creepy music box tune. Although it might be hard to be fond of the song at a first listen, with each repeat it slowly caves it’s way into the most played playlist.

From St. Vincent‘s upcoming new album Strange Mercy (Sept 13), check out Cruel.

Plus check out this live version on David Letterman.

Tuesday is a good day to be introduced to an interesting band. Today, we want to share with you one of our most recent discoveries, the Brooklyn-based, ethereal, time-stopping, highly melodic dream poppers known as Teletextile. Led by Pamela Martinez, who joins forces with Tim Cronin, Alex Topornycky and Allan Mednard, Teletextile create a very particular sound, with instruments that range from harp to banjo; complex but subtle, very meticulous, exploring music in wide extents and unafraid of being highly ambitious even though they are new on the scene. With only one EP on their resumé, which we are sharing with you below, we dare to think Teletextile is comparable in both quality and sound to Bjork, Dirty Projectors and PJ Harvey. One of favorite new artists of the year. Enjoy their EP and tell us what you think. Also, check out their video for “What If I”.

Today we are proud to present “Grenades”, the third episode of the live studio sessions we recorded in Mexico City with Rey Pila. If you enjoy it, be sure to check out their twitter @reypila and like their fb page. We had a great time with the band and the people at the studio while we were doing the sessions, thanks to all the people involved and most importantly we want to thank our readers for making this effort worthwhile and satisfactory. Share it with your friends and we’ll see you around.

On August 16th The War on Drugs released their new album “Slave Ambient” a set of dreamy rock jams made to remind you of your teenage years. Baby Missiles and Come to the City are two amazing tracks, both very different, provoking different feelings and setting different moods but with the same intention: to be heard as loud as possible! So go on ahead be sure to crank up the volume!

Reading Festival’s 2011 took place in the heart of beautiful Reading (UK) this past weekend. Saturday was headlined by The Strokes, and right in the middle of their set Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker took the stage to perform a cover of The Cars “Just What I Needed”. Of course, Julian looks uncofortable and awkward, as he always does, which has nothing to do with the lack of chemistry between them. The song is very loyal to the original and a huge classic, check it out and let us know what you think in the comments below.
