There’s no denying the fact that Flying Lotus was all over Potholes this past week. Normally, he’s competing with Danny Brown for coverage on here, meaning yes I realize we post both of them a lot. But here’s the deal: FlyLo produced Mac Miller’s new single, contributed original music to a new indie film, began work on a new Aqua Teen Hunger Force theme, announced a crazy jazz project, and got some love from Thom Yorke. Yeah.
Some other big news arrived via Lauryn Hill, who revealed she inked a deal with Sony to drop new music. We were pretty proud about our features this week, too, including our favorite Def Jux albums, favorite Ghostface Killah songs, and the pairing of beers and albums. Also, we couldn’t include it because it came out last week, but did you snag that Kanye West demo tape?
And now for the choice single drops:
- Four Tet – “Pyramid” (Atoms for Peace Remix)
- Janelle Monae – “Q.U.E.E.N.” F. Erykah Badu
- Ab-Soul – “The End is Near” F. Mac Miller
- Shuko – “Be Yourself” F. Blu
- DA-10 – “Anaphase”
- Lakutis – “Too Ill For The Law”
- Jonwayne – “Cool Runnings” F. Zeroh
