We’re not sure if the unusual pricing on bandcamp is on purpose, but we’d probably pay $1000 to hear more music from this Missouri-based band.
Who’s Gonna Get F***** First? – Father
Atlanta has been on a tear this last little while and Noisey showed us why the spotlight on the city is here to stay. This latest offering by Father is something we didn’t even know we wanted, but we’re glad it’s in our life right now.
Carrie & Lowell – Sufjan Stevens
Sufjan Stevens returns from his hiatus with this beautifully somber effort. Carrie & Lowell is one of our favorite records this year and may be the singer-songwriter’s best album yet.
Hold On – Bombadil
Bombadil crafts some really funky baroque pop on Hold On. If you enjoy San Fermin, or Mother Falcon, go give this an extended listen.
To Pimp A Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar
If you’re not already listening to this album, we’re here to remind you to do so.
It’s a tradition as old as time (if “old as time” means 13 years. If not, then we’re bending the rules of time, like that movie Interstellar. We are partially using this post to start a conversation about that movie. Verdict: Not Nolan’s best, but definitely an ambitious and worthwhile effort. 7/10, it’s a must rent!).
We are looking for submissions for our RTA Mixtape series. Think you have what it takes to join an exclusive list of RTA alumni like these fine people? Well then you cocky sun of a gun, why don’t you prove it!
Send your music file to firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
- The names of all individuals that took part in the recording (at least one must be in RTA).
- Artist and song name.
- What year of RTA you’re in.
- A lossless file of the track (.wav, .aiff, or .flac)
We look forward to hearing them! Hurry, submissions close April 5!
