Yonas Returns With “You F#cked Up” Single And Video

Get ready; Bronx rapper Yonas is back at it with a new single and video, with more on deck. The latest is “You F#cked Up,” a head nodding, mid-tempo jam that sits alongside his best singles. The video − another successful collaboration with director Mike Squires − depicts a torrid affair with a be-wigged mannequin. Watch it below. The new single is part of Yonas’ #SummerMonDaze series, which portends a solid summer of new music.

NSFW, obv.

The House Of Jed: “You’ll Wait A Long Time For Me”

The House of Jed is some super-quirky, sonically rich, lyrically weird, totally unique, perfectly concise pop music that is still completely accessible and overflowing with hooks. I guess it wouldn’t appeal to everyone, in a Top 40 radio kind of way, but it’s right up our alley here, and so we’re going to keep talking about it. The new single is “You’ll Wait A Long Time For Me,” and it bears all the classic House of Jed hallmarks − crisp and clear, uncluttered production, tight and driving beat, and vaguely spooky (the extended bridge after the last chorus seriously reminds me of the ending of “Thriller”). Listen…

Video Of The Month: “I Get A Kick Out Of Being Kicked Around By You” By Royal Chant

As comfortingly familiar as certain strains of retro-tinged garage rock can be, it often has a downside of being perfectly predictable. Not too bad a downside, of course, if you’re just trying to recapture the raw excitement of vintage rock. But it’s so much more thrilling to hear the classic tape echo tones and amped-up fuzz-jangle taking unexpected musical turns. That’s what Australia’s Royal Chant has brought us with their new track, “I Get A Kick Out Of Being Kicked Around By You.” It’s a great title, to begin with, and the Merseybeat groove of the track is a baseline for inventive melodies and chord changes that never do quite what you expect them to to. Royal Chant has cleverly paired the song with some cut together ’70s-era home movies to complete the vintage vibe. Watch below.
