Rising artist Oliver Malcolm takes a trip back to his home country to shoot a new music video, “The Machine.”

Oliver Malcolm – The Machine

Rising artist Oliver Malcolm takes a trip back to his home country to shoot a new music video, “The Machine.”Continuing his love for the DIY approach, Oliver shot the video first-person style with friends and features his high energy personality and eclectic creative voice — watch it above or here now:

Watch “The Machine” here:

The track first premiered on BBC Radio 1’s Indie Show with Jack Saunders, who delved deep into the meaning behind the track. Oliver tells the radio host that the lyrics revolt against the social institutions that prioritize material and financial gain above all else, transforming their subjects into simple cogs in “The Machine.” The song was a playlisting favorite when it was released earlier this month including being featured on the cover of Amazon Music’s “Breaking Alternative” playlist.

About Oliver Malcolm 

Oliver Malcolm got his start early, teaching himself how to spin records at 12 years old. Shortly after, he downloaded Logic and taught himself how to produce – working with IDK, Aluna George, Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, Masego Tinashe and more. Now twenty, Oliver has developed his own voice. Touching everything from the production, vocals, songwriting, engineering, mixing, and mastering,  Oliver’s sound is unique and does not fit the mold of one genre. A multidisciplinary at heart, this is just the beginning of music lovers can look forward to from the new artist.

Praise for Oliver Malcolm: 

“Oliver Malcolm is the dynamic rising star ready kick up a storm with his diverse, new punk-indebted EP” — NME

“With its deep bassline and bluesy melodies alchemizing jazz and pop influences, he crafts an almost tangible atmosphere of melancholy [in “Helen”] as pleas to a woman echo throughout” — Pigeons & Planes, Best New Artist

“The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm’s voice is a rattled, quavery moan…Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of “Switched Off” by Oliver Malcolm” — New York Times, Playlist

“Oliver Malcolm’s ‘Switched Up’ Is Intoxicating… new single ‘Switched Up’ is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques.” — CLASH

“A lot of artists claim genre-blending style, but Malcolm’s is altogether impossible to define. Is it alt-blues? Dark electro-pop? Folk-hip-hop? Does it matter?” — TIME Magazine, Best New Song

“The hip-hop producer-turned-twisted musical anarchist is making songs for nobody but himself. You’ll love them anyway.” — i-D Magazine

Gracie Abrams – minor

Today, emerging songwriter Gracie Abrams shares her highly awaited debut project, minor. A stunning showcase for her nuanced lyricism and mesmerizing vocals, the seven-song project features Abrams’s acclaimed singles “21,” “I miss you, I’m sorry,” and “Long Sleeves.” minor is available now via Interscope Records at all digital retailers HERE.

Today also marks the premiere of the video for “Friend,” a particularly poignant track from minor. The beautifully shot visual follows the 20-year-old artist as she rides around Los Angeles alone, journeying through the city’s enchanted outskirts, chaotic freeways, and lonesome streets while candidly sharing her story of betrayal and loss.

Watch the video for “Friend” by Gracie Abrams HERE.

Executive-produced by Blake Slatkin, minor spotlights the quietly captivating artistry that’s won Abrams praise from outlets like NME (who hailed her “painfully honest tales of heartbreak draped in delicate melodies that carry much more intrigue than the usual run-of-the-mill singer-songwriter”) and i-D (who noted that her voice “cradl[es] the power to break even the toughest heart”). With each song centered on her unguarded yet finely layered songwriting, minor finds Abrams collaborating with producer/songwriters like Joel Little, Benny Blanco, Jim-E Stack, Sarah Aarons and Caroline Pennell.

In a full-circle moment for Abrams, minor features the first of her songs to draw widespread attention: the project’s bittersweet title track, penned by Abrams at age 17. Now a fan favorite, after Abrams shared clips of the song on social media, “minor” offers an early glimpse into the graceful balance of raw outpouring and sharply detailed self-reflection that would come to define her music. That approach soon proved undeniable to listeners around the world, as evidenced by “21” and “I miss you, I’m sorry” each recently surpassing 10 million streams on Spotify.

Through the years, Abrams has shared homespun clips of her songs on social media, amassing over 290k followers on Instagram before she’d even released her first track.

Named an artist to watch by Pigeons & Planes, Fader, and iD — and crowned one of seven breakout female musicians by Vogue UK — Abrams considers herself a songwriter, first and foremost. After writing her first song at the age of eight, she went on to earn a devoted following on the strength of her indelibly personal lyrics and magnetic vocal delivery. Last fall, Abrams made her official debut with “Mean It” — an intensely vulnerable piece hailed by Ones To Watch as “pure, sentimental, and undeniably beautiful.”

Bob Dylan – “Rough and Rowdy Ways”

Bob Dylan’s new album, Rough and Rowdy Ways has debuted in the Top Ten in 13 countries, including #1 chart entries in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Germany and Switzerland, #2 positions in The United States, Australia and Belgium, #3 in Sweden, and #4 in France and Italy. The album’s #2 entry in the U.S. on Billboard’s Top 200 is Dylan’s highest chart debut in this country since 2009 and marks the artist’s 18th studio album to debut in the U.S. Top 10. Rough And Rowdy Ways has also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales Chart.

The 10-track Rough and Rowdy Ways is Bob Dylan’s first album of new songs since becoming the only songwriter to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016; an award bestowed upon him by the Swedish Academy “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.” Critical response to Rough and Rowdy Ways has been rapturous, with many calling the album a masterpiece and one of the strongest works in Dylan’s canon.

Bob Dylan has released seven studio albums within the past 23-years; a creative span that also included the recording of an Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning composition, “Things Have Changed,” from the film Wonder Boys, in 2001; a worldwide best-selling memoir, Chronicles Vol. 1, which spent 19 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List, in 2004 and was recently named the greatest rock memoir of all time by Rolling Stone. He is the recipient of the Officier de la Legion d’honneur in 2013, Sweden’s Polar Music Award in 2000, a Doctorate from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and numerous other honors.

Bob Dylan has sold more than 125 million records around the world. Rough and Rowdy Ways is the artist’s 39th studio album.

Stream Rough and Rowdy Ways: Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube

The Critics Have Listened:

“A testament to his eternal greatness…. Rough and Rowdy Ways might well be Bob Dylan’s most consistently brilliant set of songs in years: the die-hards can spend months unravelling the knottier lyrics, but you don’t need a PhD in Dylanology to appreciate its singular quality and power.” — Alexis Petridis, The Guardian

“True to form, Dylan surprises yet again by delivering a late-career masterpiece with Rough and Rowdy Ways.  It’s a moody, reflective, meditative, befuddling, funny and awe-inspiring turn for the Nobel Prize winner. Rich with biblical and pop culture references, at its core Rough and Rowdy Ways is a record on the borderline of this world and the next, wherever or whatever that may be….The wait was worth it.” — Scott Bauer, AP

“It’s not merely the novelty of new Bob songs that offers comfort in this black swan moment, it’s a set of songs that provides inspiration when it’s in short supply. Call it a vaccine against culture’s shrinking expectations and the subsequent sapping of spirit. or just call it great music….Contradiction has always lived comfortably in Bob Dylan’s work – more evidence of the vast scope of his artistic vision. What’s extraordinary is how it continues to expand, containing multitudes no one else thought of.” — Michael Simmons, Mojo

“A savage pulp-noir masterpiece….A word of advice: Don’t mess with Bob Dylan, who, at 79, rips, snorts and cackles through his new album like a man with something — or absolutely nothing — to prove….Rough and Rowdy Ways rolls out one marvel after another.” — Mikael Wood, Los Angeles Times

“When Dylan embarked on his musical journey as a young man in the Sixties, he forged an almost completely new type of song, open and multifarious, that became a new kind of standard…songs that defiantly inhabit his own myth, shifting perspective between his idiosyncratic views on the world and the world’s views on him.  Almost 60 years since we first heard from him, the old protest singer is still composing extraordinary anthems for our changing times.” — Neil McCormick, The Telegraph

Rough and Rowdy Ways is his first batch of new songs in 8 years, and it’s an absolute classic—it has the bleak majesty of latter-day Dylan albums like Modern Times and Tempest, yet it goes beyond them, tapping even deeper into cosmic American mysteries….his creative vitality remains startling—and a little frightening….But he refuses to rest on his legend. While the world keeps trying to celebrate him as an institution, pin him down, cast him in the Nobel Prize canon, embalm his past, this drifter always keeps on making his next escape. On Rough and Rowdy Ways, Dylan is exploring terrain nobody else has reached before—yet he just keeps pushing on into the future.” — Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

“With Rough and Rowdy Ways, he’s produced arguably his grandest poetic statement yet, a sweeping panorama of culture, history and philosophy peering back through assassinations, world wars, the births of nations, crusades and Biblical myths in order to plot his place in the great eternal scheme…. It would be foolish indeed to assume that Rough and Rowdy Ways is Dylan’s last word, but it’s certainly a historic address.” — Mark Beaumont, NME

“Truth is the talisman, tell it like it is. And that is what Dylan does….Rough and Rowdy Ways is exceptional.  If it were a painting, I’d call it a masterpiece.” — Will Gompertz, BBC

Rough and Rowdy Ways, an album that somehow manages to sound like nothing [Dylan] has ever done before, and that looks back across a long and hard-fought life while still insisting on always looking forward….The songs reveal an astonishing intensity and hunger, and a consistency that marks the album as one of Dylan’s major works….What leaps off of Rough and Rowdy Ways is Dylan’s blazing sense of purpose and focus. The man is not bullshitting. It comes through, full of humor and rage and heartbreak, in every word as they are written and sung.” — Alan Light, Esquire

Rough and Rowdy Ways hits hard.  [It’s] a gruesome, crowded, marauding album that feels unusually attuned to its moment….Dylan’s vast and intersectional understanding of the American mythos feels so plainly and uniquely relevant to the grimness and magnitude of these past few months. As the country attempts to metabolize the murder of George Floyd, it is also attempting to reckon with every crooked, brutal, odious, or unjust murder of a black person—to understand a cycle that began centuries ago and somehow continues apace. What is American racism? It’s everything, Dylan insists. Indiana Jones and J.F.K. and Elvis Presley and Jimmy Reed—nothing exists without the rest of it. None of us are absolved, and none of us are spared. Amanda Petrusich – New Yorker  Bob Dylan is a heavyweight champion. Five stars aren’t enough for his new album, Rough and Rowdy Ways. The album is a masterpiece, and a masterclass in lyric-writing in league with Dylan’s – and therefore anyone’s – best….Dylan is on fire lyrically throughout Rough and Rowdy Ways, offering up ten songs as dense in imagery and flawless in craftsmanship and quality as any of his long career….Perhaps the lesson in Rough and Rowdy Ways is that inestimable light can come from the dark places, once again making Dylan the voice we need to hear, just when we need it most.” — Jeff Slate, The Daily Beast

360 Magazine, Cruel Santino

Cruel Santino New Single

Nigerian musician and creative auteur Cruel Santino has released a new single titled “End of The Wicked” (Monster Boy/Interscope Records). The song featuring French rapper Octavian is sombre in tone, fluttering across a shimmering production of piano keys and 808s. In the track, Cruel doubles down on his ‘Santinese’ — “those whole time kini hickidy wickidy wickidy end of the wicked” — a method first created to put melody on paper but evolved into a language that fans embraced. The track will appear on Cruel Santino’s upcoming sophomore album, in the meantime stream/save “End of The Wicked” via: Alongside the new single release, Cruel Santino also announced his new joint venture deal with Interscope Records called Monster Boy. Cruel is one of very few Nigerian artists to strike a JV with a major record label. The singer, formerly known as Santi, first burst on the scene with his own brand of alternative music rooted in pop-indie, dancehall, and hip hop. He quickly rose in ranks thanks to his stunning debut in Mandy & The Jungle (2019) which birthed hits like “Rapid Fire” and “Freaky.” The creative took to his “Monster Boy” channel recently to discuss the name change, parodying a late-night television show. Watch the video and get familiar with the many facets of Cruel Santino below:

Past Praise for Cruel Santino:

“The omnivorous Nigerian rapper-singer makes smoothly effortless genre hybrids that feel like everywhere and nowhere all at once.” – Pitchfork

“This mastermind’s music hits all the right spots” – NME

“Santi’s versatility will keep him reigning” — Clash Magazine

About Cruel Santino

Nigerian musician and auteur Cruel Santino (fka Santi) burst on the music scene with critically acclaimed debut album, Mandy & The Jungle (2019) dazzling fans with tracks like “Sparky”, “Freaky”, and “Rapid Fire” — molding a genre unto himself fed by his love for pop-indie, alternative, rap, dancehall and more. The definitive album was an ode to all the things that built the foundation of who Cruel Santino is — a genre-agnostic creative force to be reckoned with. Alongside the fresh sounds, Cruel Santino also directed the visuals tied to the project honing in on his craft with creative collective Monster Boy. Inspired by the occult and Nollywood films, his eye for mise-en-scene and visual narration caught the eye of collaborator Goldlink who tapped Cruel for the rapper’s “U Say” video featuring Tyler, The Creator, and Jay Prince. Not long after, the Dubai, UAE based artist signed with management company Love Renaissance. In 2020, Cruel Santino announced his very own label, Monster Boy — an Interscope Records joint venture. This Summer, Cruel Santino will release new single “End of The Wicked” which comes off his upcoming sophomore album. Not afraid to always evolve and create, we’re learning that this is Cruel Santino’s extravagant universe and we’re lucky to be co-existing in it.

phem × Alison Wonderland

PHEM X ALISON WONDERLAND DROP TIGER KING-INSPIRED NEW SINGLE “W.W.C.B.D.” 

LISTEN HERE

Following widespread acclaim from Atwood Magazine and RunTheTrap as well as 20 million-plus streams and counting, alternative pop sorceress phem and Australian superstar Alison Wonderland pose a question that has been on everybody’s mind as of late with their new single “W.W.C.B.D.”–i.e. “wut wud carole baskin do?” Get it HERE via nvr giv up/Caroline. Inspired by the cultural phenomenon and NETFLIX documentary series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness, the track fuses echo-y trap beat-craft and electronic transmissions from Wonderland with phem’s ruddy acoustic guitar and hypnotic croon. It closes out on a possible answer to this popular quarantine query as phem strains out the final crescendo, “Feed you to the tigers, but I can’t because this virus got me paralyzed again.” Check out the visualizer HERE. About “W.W.C.B.D.”, phem commented, “During this quarantine, I became obsessed with Tiger King (just like everyone else). Every day, I was searching the hashtag on Twitter to see what other people thought and how they were reacting to Carole and the mysterious death of her husband. Feeling frustrated about being stuck inside and the idea that many people are cooped up with their significant others, (many who are at their breaking point and probably wish they could end the relationship), I picked up my guitar and began playing a simple baseline. The words came out naturally. The demo was short and concise, but I wanted some extra production and had been going back and forth with Alison Wonderland for a few months about making stuff together, so I sent it to her. She loved the idea. Within a day’s time, she sent it back and made it sound so good I almost started crying. Literally, we made this shit in two days. I didn’t want to be precious about it. It feels like no rules apply right now. It was something fun and relatable, and we both wanted it out ASAP.” Immediately, the track incited widespread critical applause. NME noted, “‘W.W.C.B.D.?’ walks a fine line between the two artists’ signature styles: starting off with pronounced riffs clouded in phem’s lo-fi demeanor, before exploding into dark, moody production from Alison Wonderland.” EDM.com praised it as “short and sweet,” and YOUREDM claimed, “For ‘W.W.C.B.D. phem delivers a haunting vocal performance as Wonderland drops a dark trap beat dripping with animal print. We can always expect music eclectic in nature from phem, but with this track’s acoustic textures and eerie tones, this is AW like we’ve never heard her before. Much like the Tiger King, we feel it.” Dancing Astronaut summed it up best as, “impressive.” phem continues to make waves. Last year’s “Sorry Mama” [feat. Machine Gun Kelly] racked up over 4.5 million global streams to date and received the endorsement of OnesToWatch who promised the track, “Will have you confessing your sins.” Meanwhile, her collaboration with Gabriel Black, “Dead Yet, surpassed 4 million cumulative streams thus far and was prominently featured in an episode of HBO’s hit show, Euphoria. Conjuring a bold brew of alternative, pop, and hip-hop, Los Angeles artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist phem extracts masterful melodies from personal conflict, otherworldly darkness, and all kinds of important questions. Living and working out of a Crenshaw studio, she introduced herself with the independent Can’t Kill Me EP in 2018 followed by the VACUMHEAD EP a year later. As she captivated a growing fan base, she collaborated with everyone from G-Eazy to Lil Tracy and delivered series of buzzing singles “Sorry Mama” [feat. Machine Gun Kelly] and “Dead Yet” with Gabriel Black, churning out 20 million streams. Not to mention, she landed on the pages of PAPER, i-D Magazine, Billboard, and more.

PRESS HERE To Listen To “Disappear”

London based bedroom-pop songwriter Beabadoobee has released her sophomore EP, Loveworm, on Dirty Hit Records. Billboard, who released a track by track of Loveworm, highlighted Bea Kristi’s “languid vocals, pointed songwriting chops and jangly, grunge-inspired sound” on the new EP, which you can PRESS HERE to stream.

“This EP Loveworm was inspired by all the music I listened to during a hard time in my life,” Bea told Pigeons and Planes who named her one of the Best New Artists for April. “It helped me forget about everything. From The Moldy Peaches to Pavement to Daniel Johnston, music was always a means of escapism for me. I wanted to make songs that could belong to one of my playlists. Something people can dance and cry to. The songs on Loveworm pretty much sum up what I was feeling at the time… love is hard, complicated and I’m pretty fragile. Sometimes it’s hard to balance that with school and music but I guess writing the songs for the EP helped me a whole lot. And I hope it helps some people out too.”

Born in Manilla and raised in London, Bea Kristi began recording music as Beabadoobee in 2017. Her first track, “Coffee” gathered hundreds of thousands of streams in a matter of days, through a fan-uploaded video. Since then, her songs have amassed millions of streams between her own self-released recordings and her debut EP, Patched Up (released via Dirty Hit) which features “If You Want To” and “Dance With Me“, and has received support from Noisey, Nylon, The Fader, Bustle and The Guardian, amongst others with NME already crowning her as one of their 100 essential artists to watch in 2019.

Loveworm Track Listing

  1. Disappear
  2. 1999
  3. Apple Cider
  4. Ceilings
  5. Angel
  6. You Lie All The Time
  7. Soren
