[Premiere] Devon Baldwin – Don’t Leave Me

New Devon Baldwin!

I was young when Blink-182‘s Enema of the State came out, but I have an older brother so I have fond memories of listening to it against my parents’ wishes. My mom hated that album cover. Now after years of vibing to Devon Baldwin‘s features with G-Eazy, we get her cover of “Don’t Leave Me” from Blink’s legendary album. The track is as short and sweet as the original, trading schizophrenic, punk rock guitars for Christoph Andersson‘s synth wizardry. Devon’s vocals drift perfectly over the instrumental and actually have me realizing Blink-182 had sort of poignant lyrics?

Let’s try this one more time with feeling

Bonus!

Check out two originals from Devon, including the brand new “Blame,” produced by 4e.

Download Three B-sides from G-Eazy’s New Album

New G-Eazy!

People always want to know what’s next. That’s probably why you visit this blog or other blogs on a near-daily basis. You want new music to show to your friends and vibe to when you go out. I get it, but sometimes the cool thing is not the mysterious band from Belgium, who might actually just be two Siamese twins who have spent the last decade writing songs for other artists because they did not want to be the face(s) of their own music, until 2014 when they felt things were progressive enough to accept the first Siamese pop stars. Dang, that actually seems really interesting.

My point is sometimes the cool thing is the artist you have followed since 2011, who has morphed and developed a unique sound–in hip-hop, too, where you get many more followers than leaders. Hopefully with his new album These Things Happen, G-Eazy will cement his place as a leader in hip-hop. Honestly, that probably won’t happen, but at least the blogs know what’s next.

You and I, we’re made of glass, we’d never last

[Video + MP3] G-Eazy – Almost Famous

Gerald Gillum, better known by his stage name G-Eazy, has sure come a long way since dropping “Runaround Sue” a couple years ago. Though he carved a nice little niche for himself by sampling doo-wop during The Endless Summer era of his career, he’s hasn’t hesitated to quickly and effortlessly evolve his sound with each successive release.

On his newest cut, “Almost Famous,” G finds himself reflecting on his steadfast rise in popularity since his first breakout single, asking himself, how long can this go on for?

I’ve always been a huge fan of this Bay Area spitter’s uber-cool style, and this video encapsulates his steez rather nicely in its creative direction, which superimposes Mr. Gillum on life-sized magazine covers.

Stream the song and it’s visuals below, and appreciate a nice little cameo by Devon Baldin‘s boobies.

G-Eazy – Mad (ft. Devon Baldwin)

It’s been almost a year since Endless Summer dropped. On that tape I think G found a sound that fit his image perfectly. He became the white rapper that dressed like the classics and then sampled the classics. His last release “Marilyn” quickly became one of our favorite songs of the year. I’m hoping this one does the same. It features frequent collaborator Devon Baldwin and an original doo-wop beat.

You got me going mad, crazy just a tad / All that I can think about, I need you so bad

Buy the song on iTunes here. Support good music.
