CURRENT: Pacific Air – “Move”

11 June can’t come quickly enough. Pacific Air has been one of my favorite new bands since their days as Ko Ko and the fantastic single “Float.” On 2012’s Long Live KO KO EP the band’s innate ability to craft the perfect pop tune was on full display, including the wonderful “Roses.” With their debut only a […]

CURRENT: ScHoolboy Q – “Hell Of A Night”

[…]

CURRENT: Mario feat. Nicki Minaj – “Somebody Else”

Mario has spent his fair share of time out of the spotlight, but that could change with the recently released, Nicki Minaj-assisted “Somebody Else.” The Polow Da Don-helmed production asserts itself from the beginning, and both Mario and Nicki Minaj feast on their musical backdrop. This has turned into one of Nicki’s best weeks in […]
