Porcelain Raft – Drifting In And Out

Coming out of nowhere, this song stuck in my head after watching a trailer for the movie, Celeste and Jesse Forever.  What a cool job when you think about it, just look around for songs that fit with movie scenes and trailers, and for the most part these people get it right.  This guy’s voice reminds me of Silversun Pickups. Check it out.

Colin Munroe Ft. Kendrick Lamar x Ab-Soul – Scars N Stars

The first time I heard of Colin Munroe, was his version of Kanye’s “Flashing Lights,” and I was impressed by his vocal style and creative take on the track.  Fast forward a couple years, and this Canadian has released a star studded mixtape, Unsung Hero (d/l here).  Featuring appearances from Pusha T, RZA, Kendrick Lamar, and Cassie, this mixtape has its share of gems.  Check out “Scars N Stars,” which features his “No Make-up,” co star Kendrick.  Find both songs below.

Watch out world, Meg Myers is the real deal. Her recently dropped EP Daughter in the Choir has been catching a lot of buzz and for good reason. This girl is fierce, and proves it with her powerful, raw voice and lyrical rage.  She has one hell of a personality too, as exemplified in her recent interview with LAist. You can download her album for free on her website.
