There’s little this band can do wrong; but there’s also little they can do more right than to collaborate with Toronto’s own Charlotte Day Wilson. Her soulful, wistful vocals delivered over their smoky and moody brand of jazz is a most heavenly match. I put this on last week and have not heard anything else since—it’s hypnotizing. Look for the rest of the album, IV, on Friday July 8th.

The temperatures are rising. Pools are alive with a symphony of splashes, BBQs aflame, and the livin’ is easy. The bouncy beats laced with loungy horns and strings make this homage to Camp Lo the perfect kick-off to the season. And it comes courtesy of two of Canada’s most seasoned hip hoppers, Skratch Bastid and Shad. This is it—very luxurious indeed.

Here’s an amuse-bouche to get your mouths watering: an old school jam with bumpin’ beats, soulful hooks, and the funky flow of lyrical masters De La Soul and guest rapper, Snoop D-O-double G. The main course—the group’s eighth album and their first in twelve years—is coming on August 26th and is the product of a very successful KickStarter campaign. I’m hungry.

Up-and-coming rapper Juicebox of Ossining, NY showcases his lyrical mastery and flow in this collaboration with producer Wes Wax. “Brian Wilson” is a lot like a guided meditation tape delivered over beautifully produced beats and tastefully mixed Beach Boys samples. This psychedelic, feel-good track is an obvious choice for your spring and summer jams (and is available for a free download on SoundCloud).
