SANTIGOLD YOU GUYS! She survived the o -> i changeover in her name, and now she’s got a new record. Following her mixtape for Mad Decent, her new single is produced by Switch (Major Lazer) and Buraka Som Sistema. The new song is loud, percussive, a bit chaotic. Cody Critcheloe of SSION (I know I didn’t make a top albums of the year but SSION’s Bent was definitely my number one. Or two; I never figured it out). Anyway. the results are below and you might be very pleased.

You can download “Big Mouth” at her website.

Keep yr eyes peeled cos Cody has another video for MNDR.

Kele Okereke’s album The Boxer was not very good, but a few weeks ago he quietly released a new EP, The Hunter that is also not the best but features this song that I love. It feels like a guilty pleasure because it’s dubsteppy and kinda weird? But it’s emotional and really pretty. Besides, have you guys seen Kele lately? Just sayin’.

This weekend a cloud of good times will descend on Dallas! Brazileños CSS return in support of their fantastic new album La Liberacion bringing along with them MEN and EMA (it’s also a great day for caps lock). They’re playing at the House of Blues tomorrow night (Oct. 28th) and having seen CSS and MEN before it’s something you won’t want to miss. It’s also the one of the last nights of their joint tour so let’s send them home after a great show!

Tickets are $18, $20 the day of the show (so get ‘em today!). Doors at 7 show starts at 8. On other shows this tour they’ve done a drag queen show at the beginning of the night so make sure to be there early to see a local queen lip sync for her life!

Also CSS and MEN have an exlusive 7″ wherein each band remixes the other. Here’s a preview of that!
