As if Mind Of A Genius signed Los Angeles project THEY. hasn’t already proven themselves one of the most forward thinking alt hip hop bands of the moment, the duo have gone ahead and sampled Nirvana’s Polly for their latest masterpiece, Rather Die. Though its name seems rather morbid, Rather Die is a spry skimming, sprightly hooking mosaic crafted out of rock, trap, and soul. There’s no denying the creativity behind the track, and there’s no avoiding obsessing over its gritty fierce, melodious ensnaring bearing. Download Rather Die for free from Toneden.

KNGDAVD reigns supreme when it comes to genre defying gritty searing music. That much was already apparent when we heard the mysterious New York outfit’s debut over the summer, Say My Name. They now follow up that track with a scorcher of a second song, POPPIES, fusing electronica, progressive soul, hip hop, and seething alt into an inferno of boiling passion. POPPIES is a free download, here. Revisit scintillating Say My Name below for more electrifying KNGDAVD intensity. Make sure you don’t miss out their tunes if you’re a fan of fellow cutting edge acts like Lewis Del Mar and Bishop Briggs.

If the world were perfect, I would have shared this next one over the weekend instead of having to excruciatingly wait until tonight. But I was away for much of the past few days, so our journey into the dark heart of Bishop Brigg’s latest is egregiously delayed since its Friday reveal. The fast rising Los Angeles based starlet has proven herself fierce and compelling this past year. She strikes like hot iron again with Be Your Love, offering us her raw immaculate vocals in a turbulent sea of ominous smoldering trap soul and bluesy weathered alt pop. I’m still reeling from Bishop Briggs’ set at Live 105′s BFD back in June, and I’ve been hungry to see her again since. It’s as if she ignites a fire within with her music, and that fire must consume and continue consuming more of Bishop Brigg’s ravishing tunes.
