Ab-Soul - "Huey Knew" (ft. Da$H)

Ab-Soul - "Huey Knew" (ft. Da$H)

In a year that has already seen releases from Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and Isaiah Rashad, it seems Ab-Soul is the next Top Dawg Entertainment member to come off the bench with some new material.

Late last night (September 29), the MC delivered the Willie B.-produced single "Huey Knew" alongside Da$H, marking his first release in two years. Ab-Soul's last LP, These Days, arrived in 2014. The MC has been teasing his forthcoming effort on Twitter as '#DWTW,' which some users have interpreted as an acronym for Do What Thou Will.

While we await further details of Ab-Soul's next release, hear the team-up with Da$H on "Huey Knew" in the player below.

Fake Palms - "Holiday" (video)

Toronto crew Fake Palms release their Heavy Paranoia EP today (September 30), and to mark its arrival, the band have unveiled a sweet new video for "Holiday."
 
The clip is essentially a toothache waiting to happen, with mounds of cotton candy, jawbreakers, suckers, jellybeans, chocolate bunnies, gummy bears, marshmallows, ice cream and straight up sugar getting eaten, thrown around, smeared on faces and melted down into a colourful sticky mess.
 
Indulge in the gooey, chewy clip below.
 
Heavy Paranoia is out on Buzz Records now.
 

Carried Away - "Glass" (video)

Carried Away - "Glass" (video)

Toronto pop-punks Carried Away are ready to unleash a brand new video, and Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive first watch.
 
The band released their debut EP Intrepid earlier this year, but they're already working on the follow-up and set to show off some new material in the latest clip. "Glass" is a heavy, high-energy cut that pairs Madison Crombie's soft, melodic vocals with crunchy guitars and a harsh but upbeat rhythm section.

"'Glass' is a song about the numbness you feel after something tough happens in your life you were not ready for," the band tell Exclaim! "After initial shock and sadness of it wears off you are left not knowing how to feel, what to do with yourself, and you shut yourself down. You see things not as clearly as before (through the glass)."

The new clip showcases that sentiment, following the group from a dark, dingey basement performance space into the great outdoors.

"The video portrays a person's journey through that time, which is not always easy, towards the final freedom and acceptance of change," they add. "Things are always gonna be okay at the end, even if they are not right now. Just give it time."

​Dan Edmonds - 'Ladies on the Corner' (album stream)

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 07:00 AM PDT

​Dan Edmonds -

Hamilton folk-rock troupe Harlan Pepper called it quits last summer, but the band members haven't abandoned music entirely. In fact, singer/guitarist Dan Edmonds is set to unveil a brand new album titled Ladies on the Corner on October 7, and Exclaim! is giving you an advanced listen.
 
For help on his debut solo full-length, Edmonds enlisted some familiar Cancon faces including members of Cuff the Duke, Elliott Brood, Del Bel and Bry Webb. It hears the young singer-songwriter embracing rootsy, retro vibes — right down to the 8-track machine he used to record the album.
 
"I was really limited in that sense, but I loved the challenge," he said in a statement. "It was almost like trying to make the perfect demo. To me, demos always sound better than the final product in most cases."
 
It's unsurprising then that the new songs opt for an endearingly lo-fi sound rather than any move into the left field of polished pop music. Stream-of-consciousness lyrics get paired with gentle, rootsy instrumentation, though Edmonds shies away from the Americana label that was frequently attached to his past project.
 
"I feel like these new songs show off a different side of all the old country and folk music I still love," he explained. "My hope is that people will come to this album with fresh ears and appreciate it for what it is."
 
Scroll past Edmonds's upcoming gigs and hit play to give it a chance in the player below right now.

Kings of Leon - "Around the World"

Kings of Leon - "Around the World"

Kings of Leon will drop a new album titled Walls in a couple of weeks, but before the full-length effort arrives, the band have offered another sampling of new material.
 
Following up lead single "Waste a Moment," the group have unveiled "Around the World." It's a jaunty number, piling twanging, jangling guitars and even some synths atop a quick, percussive backbone, while frontman Caleb Followhill croons in his signature southern drawl.
 
Listen to "Around the World" below. Walls is out October 14 through RCA.

Blood Orange), Sampha, Q-Tip, The-Dream, BJ the Chicago Kid, Moses Sumney and Kelela, as well as Canadian popsmith Sean Nicholas Savage.

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings - 'Kings and Kings' (album stream)

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings -

Five years on from Blackie and the Rodeo Kings' issuing their Kings and Queens collaborative release, the Canadian roots crew are ready to drop the script-flipping follow-up, Kings and Kings. While the Rodeo Kings won't have their latest set out until October 7, you can hear them crooning along with Dallas Green, Rodney Crowell and more right now via an exclusive stream with Exclaim!

As previously reported, 2011's Kings and Queens had the band's Tom Wilson, Colin Linden and Stephen Fearing reaching out to Roseanne Cash and Lucinda Williams for a little help. This time around, they're extending the invitation to a number of male contemporaries. This includes City and Colour leader Dallas Green, whose gentle tone was heard complementing Wilson's familiarly gravelly croon on previously teased album track "Beautiful Scars."

Elsewhere, Rodney Crowell hops on bittersweet country stomp "Live by the Song," a track about life on the road, while power-pop great Nick Lowe kicks up dust with the Rodeo Kings on the strummed and shuffled "Secret of a Long Lasting Love." Other artists tapped include Bruce Cockburn, Vince Gill, Eric Church and Raul Malo.

You'll find a full album stream below, while Kings and Kings will be ready to rule the roost October 7 via File: Under Music.

Solange & Her Mom Talk Blackness, Family, ‘A Seat At The Table’

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 11:52 AM PDT

Solange Announces New Album ft. Q-Tip, Sampha, Dev Hynes + More, Out This Friday

Solange Knowles recently released her third studio album A Seat at the Table, a project that has immediately become one of our favorites of the year.

Coinciding with its release Solange released an interview on her Saint Heron website, where she discusses the influences behind the album as well as her growth as an artist and person, with mother Tina Lawson and writer Judnick Mayard.

The conversation between the three women is insightful and telling, as they all touch upon certain standout tracks from the album, such as “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Don’t You Wait.”

“I believe that hair is incredibly spiritual, and, energetically, it really encompasses and expresses who we are,” Solange said about “Don’t Touch My Hair.” “Obviously, my relationship with hair, being that I grew up literally in a hair salon, is very deep and very complex. I think that one of the things that I'm also trying to communicate through that song is the way that people see us through our hair. It’s almost my India.Arie ‘I Am Not My Hair’ moment.”

The group then discusses “Don’t You Wait,” a song inspired by Solange’s commentary on how R&B was being covered by music outlets earlier this year. A particularly important line in the track, “bite the hand,” is in reference to a statement made to her by a journalist during that incident, and is discussed in depth during the conversation.

“I spoke up on something that did not feel right, and I was essentially told to shut up or there would be consequences,” Solange said. “That’s what it meant to hear someone say ‘don’t bite the hand that feeds you’ in response to that. The hardest part was that person got to live in peace for years while I held on to those words for years.”

Throughout the interview we also get some additional background Solange’s family history, including the origins of her grandmother and grandfather, Tina’s mother and father.

Check out the interview here.

Study: Black People Are Not Calling 911 Over Fears Of Police Brutality

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 10:36 AM PDT

Study: Black People Are Not Calling 911 Over Fears Of Police Brutality

A recent study has found a correlation between police misconduct and a decreasing rate in black people calling 911.

Titled “Police Violence and Citizen Crime Reporting in the Black Community” and conducted by the American Sociological Association, the report came after studying the effects of the 2004 killing of Frank Jude Jr. at the hands of Milwaukee police.

Jude was being beaten by off duty police officers who suspected him of stealing a police badge from a party, and when 911 was called, responding officers only joined in on the beating.

The incident, considered to be one of the worst cases of police brutality the city has experienced, resulted in a distrust of law enforcement by the black community. Although 911 calls did not drop immediately after Jude’s death, they did drop drastically following a story the Journal Sentinel ran along with an image of Jude’s badly beaten and bloodied face.

After that, even controlling for crime and other such factors, calls dropped by 22,000, with 56 percent of the drop coming from the black community.

“Something like the Frank Jude case tears the fabric apart so deeply and de-legitimizes the criminal justice system in the eyes of the African American community that they stop relying on it in significant numbers,” the study’s lead author Matthew Desmond told the Journal Sentinel.

“That is a huge effect and it symbolizes that these are not isolated incidents because they don't have isolated effects,” Desmond continued. “They have community wide effects and those effects can actually make the city less safe by driving down crime reporting and thwarting public safety efforts.”

The study is a reflection of the current racial tension here in America. A number of black people have been killed recently by police officers across the country this year, leading many to protest for a countrywide change and reform of police departments in the United States.

Check out the study here.

First Look Friday: Discover The Industry’s Best Kept Secret, Durand Bernarr

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 09:00 AM PDT

durand-bernarr-3442
Durand Bernarr photographed by Vickey Ford (SneakShot) for Okayplayer.

Cleveland, Ohio is a hub, a haven even, for celebrated musical talent. Legends such as Gerald LevertAvant and Men at Large held C-Town down with their dulcet tones and boss-like bravado. Following in that same legacy is this week’s First Look Friday subject, Durand Bernarr. Building a reputation as a dynamic singer and budding songwriter, this fellow Cleveland native stands out as one of the music industry’s best kept secrets.

A prodigy from a young age, Durand has learned at the feet of giants such as Earth, Wind & FireThe InternetChaka Khan and The Foreign Exchange. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, then you should join the almost 65,000 subscribers to his YouTube and witness why he has had almost 10 million views as an indie performer. From his “Sorry” cover by Beyoncé to his version of Erykah Badu‘s “Phone Down,” this adopted son of @FatBellyBella—not literally, guys, c’mon—is a growing force to be reckoned with.

With music embedded in his DNA, the artist also known as “AlcoholHarmony” is an absolute impact of nature. We’re pleased to be able to introduce the Okayplayer audience to the musical stylings of Durand Bernarr. In our chat with man whose voice is like jalapeño cheddar grits served with warm cornbread, we discuss Durand Bernarr’s origins, premiere “Around,” an exclusive song from his repertoire and learn what moments from his recent travels have stuck with him most. Enjoy!

Okayplayer: To music snobs the world over, you are making an impact on both sides of the U.S. What is it that those in Cleveland are seeing and hearing that the rest of the world has yet to discover?

Durand Bernarr: Those who have been around me enough in Cleveland have seen me with my hair all the way down. They know my nicknames. [They know] how fast I can eat sunflower seeds. [They know my] random outbursts of songs or even being at the B-side on Coventry acting up on the mic. Cleveland got a first look at what’s to become of me [and] that’s the potential.

OKP: For those who have a passion for music, they honed their skills and practiced their craft. Who are your most cherished influences in music and why?

DB: Both of my parents, who sing, and the music they exposed me to as a child was a mixture of gospel, jazz, new age, a little bit of Michael [Jackson]Whitney [Houston] and Sade. However, it wasn’t until one of my mother’s friends introduced me to “On & On” by Erykah Badu at eight-years-old that I had an automatic draw to her.

I never understood the depth of “Appletree” or even “Certainly” until I got older, but I think my subconscious was already hip. Who she is as an artist and as a person is the foundation of my influence. My god brother Daj taught me how to color with my voice and then we have B. Slade, who is formerly known as gospel artist Tonéx, and he is like the juggernaut of male vocalists in my book.

OKP: Your song, "Fly On The Wall," is extremely dope and has heightened anticipation for new work from you by music snobs who have a heavy presence in the industry. Can you talk about how life was for you while developing as an artist in Cleveland?

Watch Blood Orange Deliver A Stunning Performance On 'The Daily Show'

Blood Orange has been on a late-night tear in these last few months. In August the Dev Hynes-led regime delivered a touching performance on Conan, where Hynes went solo against a backdrop of blood-red curtains and a lone baby grand, adorned with photos of fallen victims of police brutality and prejudices at large.

Last night he brought the whole team onboard (including Starchild and OKP alum, Zuri Lyric) to perform his Freetown Sound standout “Juicy 1-4” on The Daily Show. With band and back-up vocalists in tow Hynes wielded a joyous performance of the track, perfectly up to par with what we’ve come to expect from BO and Hynes in recent years. Hynes also joins Solange on her new album A Seat At The Table, along with Q-Tip, Sampha, Kelly Rowland, Tweet, Lil Wayne and oh so many more. You can pick up a copy of that on iTunes today.

Watch Blood Orange deliver a stunning set on The Daily Show down below and if you’ve yet to get acquainted, revisit the brilliance of Freetown SoundYou can also catch the band live and direct tomorrow night in NYC at Terminal 5.

Watch Mary J. Blige & Hillary Clinton Talk Motherhood, Police Brutality In New Interview

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 07:42 AM PDT

Watch Mary J. Blige & Hillary Clinton Talk Motherhood, Police Brutality In New Interview

A few days ago a preview of an interview between Mary J. Blige and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton dropped on the Internet, and immediately gained attention for a number of reasons (the most obvious one being Blige interviewing Clinton).

Now, the full interview has dropped. Taped for her Beats 1 show “The 411,” Blige’s conversation begins with her talking about the first time she met the former United States Secretary of State, which then leads into a discussion on how Clinton is perceived and how her faith remains a vital part of her career.

The chat then goes into the two talking about their mother’s impact on their lives.

“She was the most important role model, the strongest influence in my life,” Clinton said. “She had a really difficult childhood, she was abandoned by her parents and sent to live with grandparents that didn’t want her, and at the age of 13, 14, she was out working as a housemaid and babysitter…my mother’s strong will was everything to me.”

Towards the end is when Blige (as you already saw in the preview) sings Bruce Springsteen‘s “American Skin (41 Shots)” to Clinton, which leads into a discussion about the police brutality occurring throughout the country.

“I have been so heartbroken over what’s been going on because it’s so fundamentally at odds with and wrong that African American parents have to sit their children down and deliver the message,” Clinton said. “And just say, ‘Be careful’ and yet we still have so many terrible deaths — some at the hands of the police, many at the hands of others like Trayvon Martin, whose mother I’ve gotten to know so well.”

She then added: “I particularly want white people to understand what that’s like and to feel that they must be part of the solution.”

Check out the interview below, which also includes the last Netflix show Clinton binge-watched, and what she currently has in her playlist.

Freddie Gibbs Acquitted Of Sexual Assault Charges

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 06:32 AM PDT

Andra Day, Lianne La Havas, Corinne Bailey Rae & More Bring Soul To The Night 2 Of The Roots Jam Session 2016 In L.A.

Freddie Gibbs is coming home. After four months of legal battles stemming from an alleged sexual assault in Austria, the Gary, IN rapper has reportedly been acquitted of all charges. His manager, Lambo, announced it this morning via Instagram:

It’s been a long summer for Gibbs, having been extradited back to Austria after a performance in France and held there all these months. But it appears he’s enjoying some well-earned time with his infant daughter and soon enough, will be back to his mic-ripping ways. First stop: Roots Picnic NYC. Next stop: that much-drooled-over new Madlib collabo album, Bandana. We’re just happy to see him back with his loved ones. Read a statement from Freddie Gibbs’ attorney below and come out this weekend to help us celebrate his return.

Today, September 30, 2016 Freddie Gibbs was found not guilty. We have always maintained unconditionally and without any doubt that Freddie would be and now has been fully exonerated and completely vindicated. We are pleased and thankful that the Court recognized the same trust and confidence we and all of his fans have had in Freddie that justified and resulted in his absolute acquittal. Immediately after his acquittal I spoke with Freddie who expressed his deeply sincere, heartfelt gratitude and thanks to his fiancé Erica Dickerson for her unwavering support, for the steadfast and incomparable loyalty of his long time friend and manager Ben "Lambo" Lambert, for the extraordinary work and effort of his lawyers and for the overwhelming outpouring of love he has received from his fans. He says, "Thank you!"

While we are appreciative of the verdict of not guilty, nothing has changed. The actual facts have always demonstrated that Freddie was and is 100% innocent. It is now self-evident he was wrongly accused. The trial has confirmed our belief that after a searching and complete investigation and trial the true and actual facts would be revealed – that there always was an absence of any scientific, physical, or credible evidence that would warrant in any way such an accusation.

Freddie and his family look forward to returning to the States so he can resume his life and career.

Maxo Kream Shares Video for “Out The Front Door”

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 12:29 PM PDT

Several months ago, Maxo Kream's Key! collaboration "Out The Front Door" surfaced and quickly became one of his standout tracks. Later on, the song would go on to become a part of Maxo Kream's latest full-length project, The Persona Tape. Linking up with A Zae Production and Detroit's finest Jerry Production, Maxo now serves up a fitting, menacing clip for the Wolf De Mchls-produced record. What Maxo Kream touches upon with his new video isn't divorced from the standard trap-rap fare on YouTube, but it's guided by a psychedelic approach that makes the visual something that is uniquely Maxo's. You can view the clip for "Out The Front Door" above. Maxo Kream is currently on tour with Danny Brown, who just released his own new album. Earlier this month, Maxo Kream linked up with The Cool Kids for their new single.

Freddie Gibbs Has Been Acquitted of Sexual Assault Charges

Posted: 30 Sep 2016 08:58 AM PDT

You can't keep a good man down forever and that appears to be the case for Freddie Gibbs, as the rapper has officially been acquitted of all sexual assault charges after he was arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a woman in Vienna during a tour stop. But after today's judgement, he's now officially free. His manager made the announcement via social media, and his lawyer issued a statement via FADER. See them both all below:

Statement from Freddie's lawyer:

"Today, September 30, 2016 Freddie Gibbs was found not guilty. We have always maintained unconditionally and without any doubt that Freddie would be and now has been fully exonerated and completely vindicated. We are pleased and thankful that the court recognized the same trust and confidence we and all of his fans have had in Freddie that justified and resulted in his absolute acquittal. Immediately after his acquittal I spoke with Freddie who expressed his deeply sincere, heartfelt gratitude and thanks to his fiancé Erica Dickerson for her unwavering support, for the steadfast and incomparable loyalty of his long time friend and manager Ben "Lambo" Lambert, for the extraordinary work and effort of his lawyers and for the overwhelming outpouring of love he has received from his fans. He says, "Thank you!"
"While we are appreciative of the verdict of not guilty, nothing has changed. The actual facts have always demonstrated that Freddie was and is 100% innocent. It is now self-evident he was wrongly accused. The trial has confirmed our belief that after a searching and complete investigation and trial the true and actual facts would be revealed – that there always was an absence of any scientific, physical, or credible evidence that would warrant in any way such an accusation. Freddie and his family look forward to returning to the States so he can resume his life and career."

Statement from Freddie's manager:
