BADBADNOTGOOD – Kaleidoscope (Kaytranada’s Flip)

Badbadnotgood just keeps getting better and better. Notorious for their boundary-pushing and genre-fucking ways, these guys are are absolutely killing it these days. Not your typical jazz conservatory grads, this Toronto-based trio (Matthew Tavares on keys, Chester Hansen on bass, and Alexander Sowinski on drums) initially garnered attention with their bad-ass jazz interpretative stylings of some […]

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs — Ashley Jordan Lane

Frank Ocean – Thinkin Bout You (Ryan Hemsworth Bootleg)

Frank Ocean – Thinkin Bout You

  It’s Thursday and I honestly cannot stop listening to this song. All the buzz around Frank Ocean recently has definitely happened for a good reason, at least musically. On a more general note, I’ve been hearing and talking a lot about these buzz artists lately, whether it’s at work or with friends, but it’s […]
