Tyler, the Creator — Boredom (and more, live at NPR)

California rapper Tyler, The Creator curated a very memorable experience during his recent appearance at NPR’s offices in Washington D.C., bringing in a full lighting team to illuminate his band during their recent live set. The tones of pink and blue perfectly complement his music, with jazzy drums, upright bass, and keyboards joining elegant background vocals below the rapper’s hyper-personal lyrics.

Future Islands — Beauty Of The Road

Sweaty, energetic live performances are a hallmark of indie-electro band Future Islands, so it seems appropriate that they take center stage in the group’s recently released music video for Beauty Of The Road. The track begins with a simple keyboard and drumbeat, eventually evolving into the a classic four-on-the-floor anthem in the same style that fans have long loved from the Baltimore band.

Ramin Djawadi — Game Of Thrones Main Title (live on KCRW)

Fans of HBO’s smash-hit Game Of Thrones will enjoy this recent live performance on California’s KCRW radio, as composer Ramin Djawadi presents the theme song he composed for the show with a full, live band. Viewers will be interested to see the strings and massive drums that help fuel the famed title track, as well as watch the composer himself play the harpsichord line that acts as its cliffhanging conclusion.

Guided By Voices — Space Gun

Legendary indie rock band Guided By Voices provides your workout track of the week with Space Gun, a heavy-hitting bit of rock ‘n’ roll that will fuel you through any strenuous exercise you take on. Gritty guitars and a heavy beat permeate this gritty new jam, offering the same lo-fi appeal that helped drive the band to prominence in the first place.

Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah — Freedom Is A Word

Trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah has released three incredible albums this year already, but even that’s not enough for the prolific musician. The jazz-pop songwriter recently released this collaboration with Chicago Rapper Vic Mensa, a slow-rolling jam with trumpet and flute solos, as well as passionate, politically charged verses from Mensa.
