The Playlist: Roc Marciano/ Will.i.am/ How To Dress Well/ Method Man, Freddie Gibbs and StreetLife/ Becoming Real ft. Alice Sunless 97/ The Music Tapes
Moody, monotone gangster rap that uses a sample of 10cc's "I'm Not in Love" to glorious effect. Marciano understands that New York rap is always best when done simply.
Reach for the Stars (Mars edition)
The first song in the history of mankind to be broadcast from another planet. For such a momentous event, Will.i.am's overly-autotuned hip-hop may feel a little lightweight. Still, it's suitably otherworldly.
How To Dress Well
Cold Nights (Koreless Remix)
Red Bull Music Academy inductee Koreless turns "Cold Nights" into a warm, haunting track by building it around a soft xylophone hook.
Method Man/Freddie Gibbs/StreetLife
Built For This
The rap heavyweights team up for this track from RZA's directorial debut "The Man With the Iron Fists". Kanye West and Wu Tang also appear on the film's OST.
Becoming Real ft. Alice Sunless 97
Alice's aloof voice works perfectly on BR's lush, east-Asian influenced new single.
The Music Tapes
This ambitious new project from former Neutral Milk Hotel bassist and banjo player Julian Koster sits somewhere between late-period Beatles and Daniel Johnston.
