Produced by P2J and New Machine, “Little Things” is flirty and energetic, and with a video to match, it’s all about the spontaneity of being out, spotting someone you like, and seeing what happens. “The song is pretty self explanatory, I had a lil concoction – rum, ting and a magnum. When we started creating this song I was just imagining hearing this walking into a party and seeing someone I’d had my eye on. It’s fun!” – Jorja says of the single.

Madeline Kenney Announces New LP / Shares “Superficial Conversation”

In the quiet surrounding the pandemic, Madeline Kenney made sonic sketches in the basement studio she shared with her then-partner. She arranged phrases that called her—the sharp knife of a synth cutting a path along a blooming arpeggio, drums stuttering firm and tight.

New Release from Killer Mike “MOTHERLESS” on Loma Vista / Concord

Killer Mike has shared a two-part short film tribute to his late mother comprising a pair of songs from his forthcoming album MICHAEL (out June 16 via Loma Vista Recordings / Concord), including his most recent single “DON’T LET THE DEVIL feat. EL-P & thankugoodsir” and the previously unreleased song “MOTHERLESS feat. Eryn Allen Kane.” In keeping with the album’s nakedly autobiographical nature, the two-parter kicks off with Mike digging through keepsakes in his mother’s Atlanta home when he discovers and smokes a joint amongst her belongings that unlocks a wave of memories. “DON’T LET THE DEVIL,” directed by Davi Peña based on a treatment by EL-P, is a joyful and nostalgic homage to the parties Mama Niecy used to throw in the family’s home. Mike notes: “El’s heard me talk about these bohemian-artsy-disco infused parties my mom used to throw when I was kid. I’d hear everything there–that’s where I first heard Grandmaster Flash, Kurtis Blow & Whodini. So when we were trying to figure out what the video for “DON’T LET THE DEVIL” should be – Jaime came back with this treatment written out and I cried at the end. What’s even crazier is he didn’t know what we were doing for “MOTHERLESS” either but that’s the magic I guess.”
