How to Dress Well, “Repeat Pleasure”

Philly neo-R&B dude Tom Krell and his How to Dress Well project returns with a new record entitled What Is This Heart, to be released on June 24 by Weird World. It was recorded in Berlin with producer Rodaidh McDonald (Vampire Weekend, the XX, Savages, Adele). Here’s a taste:


Timber Timbre, “Beat the Drum Slowly”

Toronto’s Timber Timbre has just released their third LP, Hot Dreams on Arts & Crafts, and this second video from that record was animated by Chad VanGaalen (whose new record Shrink Dust is coming out on April 29). Check it!


Karneef, “Swimming”

See local musician scenester Karneef in a video directed by Mexican-born Montreal artist Renata Morales. Karneef’s album Love Between Us was released in November by Club Roll.


Yelawolf, “Box Chevy V”

Alabama rapper Michael Wayne Atha, better known as Yelawolf, released his fifth installment in a seemingly pretty intense series of odes to the Box Chevy. His album Love Story is due to be released next month via his own label, Slumerican.


Girl Talk & Freeway, feat. Waka Flocka Flame

This is the first official music video from mega masher-upper Girl Talk (aka Pittsburgh bro Gregg Gillis), directed by Allen Cordell. It’s a little like the Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony,” with a bunch of sweet battles thrown in. His mixtape with Philly rapper Freeway is called Broken Ankles, and it’ll be available as a free download on Tuesday, April 8.
