Let us start this week’s Look Hear
with the video to blue-eyed soul man Mayer Hawthorne
’s 'Your Easy Lovin’ Ain’t Pleasin’ Nothin’, featuring a questionable lime green shirt and synchronized dance moves:
announced that they are hard at work on their as-yet untitled third album. However they did dangle some cheese in front of all those electro pop-inclined noses, as reported earlier this week
. For all y’all who loved 'Where I’m Going' enough to put it on your iPod, you can download the track from their website
The explicit version of Kid Cudi
’s (who is making a quasi-'comeback' after being charged for knocking down an unidentified woman’s door and also possessing liquid cocaine) 'Erase Me' surfaced earlier this week in anticipation of his album Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Rager
. It features Kanye West and we cannot promise it is very good. But curious ones can download that here

As we also told you earlier
, the track 'Wake Up Everybody' has been leaked from the John Legend and the Roots’ upcoming collabo album Wake Up!
, out September 12th. As well as these two ‘entities’ (whoever can think of a better word may or may not win a prize), 'Wake Up Everybody' features Melanie Fiona and Common, who apparently is trying to get more in touch with the ‘kids these days’. You can download the track here

We went pretty ape last week
for the new Mount Kimbie album, Crooks And Lovers
. Here is a video for the track 'Would Know' lifted from the LP:
has a new EP coming out next week titled Lazers Never Die
, and in the vein of a recent trend, it is streaming on their MySpace
. Thom Yorke jumps on remix duties and scores the top amount of track plays for the entire release.
sadly broke up but not-so-sadly are releasing their first album in five years, Villa Manifesto
, next week. This is the video for 'Reunion Pt. 2' featuring Dilla’s little bro Illa J:
did a Guru
tribute that you can download here
off DJ Premier’s blog. It’s hard to tell whether Fat Joe is relevant anymore or not, but for what it’s worth his album The Darkside Vol. 1
is dropping next week.
The Pitchfork Festival happened last weekend, and while most of us probably weren’t there, luckily there are archived recordings to help us feel like we were. Behold the recordings
of Animal Collective front-man Panda Bear
’s set coming to us from the trusted Gorilla Vs. Bear.
At this stage the Klaxons
are vying for 2010’s ‘best cover art, possibly ever’ award with this
. Surfing The Void
will be out August 20th in Australia and August 23rd in the US. This is the video for their single 'Echoes':
Apparently ‘witch house’ is a genre these days. Don’t believe the hype? This mixtape
from new label Tri-Angle proves it. It’s dedicated to Lindsay Lohan
going to jail (ie:. doing covers of her 'songs' – 'songs' is in quotes because we don’t quite believe she has proper musical ability). Also we guess this mixtape kinda relates to the fact that Spank Rock said that her cooch “looks like a baby rat”.
The new XLR8R
magazine is out, and free, and available here
And finally, the new Nicki Minaj 'Your Love video:
