Smino Reveals “90 Proof” Music Video w/ J. Cole & Announces 5th Annual ‘Kribmas’ Benefit Concert !!!
Delivering one of the most talked-about releases of the fall, St. Louis artist, rapper, songwriter, producer, and disruptor Smino maintains his momentum with the premiere of the music video for his buzzing single “90 Proof” [with J. Cole]. It remains one of many standouts from Luv 4 Rent—his third album and debut project with Motown Records, in partnership with Zero Fatigue.
SG Lewis Releases New Single ‘Lifetime.’ Forthcoming Album Out January 27.
Speaking on the track, SG Lewis explains: “I think that ‘Lifetime’ could be my favorite record I’ve ever made. I wrote it with my friends Ed Drewett, Reuben James and J Moon late one night at Decoy Studios, and the song is largely about Ed and his wife. It’s a song that channels inspiration from a lot of the music I grew up listening to and holds a very special place in my heart.”
Today, Brooklyn-based garage rock outfit Komodos share their debut EP, K.O: the end result of the Brooklyn’s five-piece’s collective effort to sublimate the complex and infamous affair that is living in New York City as a young 20-something. The four tracks are tinged with sonic ephemera of NYC rock & roll from the last half-century, yet as a whole, are unequivocally innovative and modern. Recorded live in the band’s apartment studio, and mixed and mastered by Max Harwood (Lewis Del Mar), “K.O.” is snarling yet sophisticated, cerebral yet brazen. It is an opus of adrenaline, scorn, sex, narcissism, greed, loathing and intimacy, transmuted into a raw wash of harmonics and distortion. It is art for art’s sake, a chromatic splash upon the wall of a whitewashed genre, an intrepid bid to silence the cynics and get them dancing once again.

Rising pop princess EDEN HUNTER aims to uplift in “You Don’t Have to Save the World”
Ahead of her sold-out headline show at Colours in London’s Hoxton, “You Don’t Have to Save the World” takes shape as a much-needed prompt to stay grounded in today’s fast-paced world. Smoothly fusing synthpop elements with a chic pop-rock edge, Hunter reminds us to celebrate small wins with encouraging vocals, belted across a bed of fast-paced indie drums and stylish guitar strums during the effortlessly catchy chorus.
About the new track the band says: “With ‘The Solitude’ Stage Of Reality want to lay bare the most tragic aspect of achieving a life goal: the solitude. Waking up every morning with a goal difficult to reach and knowing to be alone to do it. Trying in vane while your friends and relatives would like your life to be more normal and obvious. Deep down we are billions of lonely people who try to make their dreams come true”.
