bonobo - Flashlight

Simon Green (aka Bonobo) follows up last year's expansive album The North Borders with a new 3-song EP. Title track "Flashlight" has the UK producer currently sitting at #1 as Hype Machine's most-blogged artist this week.

Viet Cong - Continental Shelf

Blogs are loving the first song from Viet Cong's debut LP, because a) the 4-piece includes former members of beloved Calgary band Women, and b) it's "exhilarating... brimming with gloomy post-punk melodies and menacing, dark undertones," says Silver Soundz.

Wayward - Hurricane feat. Michele Chiavarini

The latest signing to Black Butter Records (home to Rudimental and Gorgon City), this London-via-Leeds duo just released their new EP with all six tracks getting blogged—"Hurricane" is our favorite.

Leon Bridges - Coming Home

Old soul Leon Bridges has fellow Texan Gorilla Vs. Bear (among others) "blown away" by these two "Sam Cooke-channelling" uploads to his 10 day-old SoundCloud.

Parkay Quarts - Uncast Shadow Of A Southern Myth

Parquet Courts form their own tribute band, under the name Parkay Quarts, and slow their roll on this first hint of what the NY band's forthcoming LP Content Nausea might sound like.

This week's album premiere is the self-titled debut from Ultimate Painting.

As for interesting reads, try this one which is a good take on that much-debated NY Times piece about streaming music.

Thanks for listening!
