Video: Estelle – “Thank You” + Tour Dates


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

“Thank you, cos now I know what I don’t want,” reads the opening frame of Estelle’s new “Thank You” video. Real ish. By now, pretty much everyone has to know and love this hypnotizing tune with its dipping sitar and unearthly feel. The video is equally both dreamy and sobering with its desaturated visuals, dipping into shadows and evocative framing.

The upcoming album, All of Me, will be available on February 28th.

Artist Spotlight: The Stuyvesants + New “Stoops Parks & Rooftops” MP3


If you’re amongst the lucky ones, you’ve already heard of The Stuyvesants who released their debut album, Brooklyn’s Finest, last June. The album was a 25-track instrumental cut from samples chosen by master selector and record collector, Darien Victor Birks (aka flwrpt), and woven together by the quiet beast of a producer, Allan Cole (aka Algorythm). As they gear up for the release of their second album this summer, our good homies have released a single paying ode to Brooklyn summers called “Stoops Parks & Rooftops.” The track features their counterpart, Naturel handling emcee duties over another breezy Stuyvesants instrumental. Stream and download “Stoops Parks & Rooftops” as well as their debut album for free after the jump!
