This is an amazing tune. Video is okay. If you like a bit of dubstep this this should be right up your street but it’s not like Rusko or anything it’s something much subtler than that, as you would expect from the man behind the sound of The XX. I look forward to hearing more from him. Expect to hear this at the next NIGHT VERSIONS crumble on 18th December; we are open til 4am!

Hipster Runoff is a popular indie music blog that blogs about popular indie music.
So, the other day, Hipster Runoff writes this blog post about Kanye West’s new album, still don’t know what it’s called, getting a rating of 10 out of 10 or something from the popular indie music reviews website Pitchfork.com.
So Hipster Runoff’s chief blogger Carles wonders if we have found the ‘perfect album’ or something if Pitchfork gave it a 10.
But then Carles wonders if there is some conspiracy behind this whole thing because Pitchfork never gives 10s and so it must be that Pitchfork is trying to reach out to the Hip Hop audience or something.
Do yall know if the Pitchfork reviewer even listened to the album? Seems to me that from the quotes on Hipster Runoff he only talks about the ‘phenomenon’ that is Kanye West.
Then the next day Carles is all commenting about Pitchfork reviewing Rihanna and some other black girl’s albums. Carles is calling it “The Negrofication of Pitchfork and the Death of White Man’s Indie Music”. Seems pretty important/relevant/sensationalist to me.
Now, it seems to me that Carles has got a point. If, as he says, Pitchfork didn’t used to review black people’s music then maybe they are trying to hook onto some new scene or something and change the game. Hell, maybe they are trying to change people’s ideas of what ‘indie music’ even is.
Do yall know if Carles has ever read the Pitchfork website?
Do yall know if Carles even listens to the music?
Do yall think Carles is getting ‘loco’ to question Pitchfork’s reviews? Seems to me that Pitchfork is supposed to be some kind of authority or something.
Perhaps now Uffie got her shite album out and everyone realised she wasn’t with Feadz no more, Feadz can concentrate on his work or something without some cheating whore running around behind his back. #TeamFeadz. Because, the taster for this new EP sounds really good. The video is also an epileptic-fit inducing psychodelifest.

And just because everyone is talking about it, the NSFW Klaxons video for Twin Flames. Meh. Do you think this raunchy and risqué video will give them credit again? I don’t. However, it is weird and has some nice titties in it so is definately worth the 4 minutes watch.
Here is another video with titties:
