Swedish folk musician The Tallest Man on Earth continues to be the most popular act on The Hype Machine on September 14, following the release of a new EP a week earlier. Indie singer/songwriter/musician Sufjan Stevens and rapper Kanye West remain in second and third, while Big Boi and Houses are climbing the chart.

Big Boi has recently released the track "Lookin 4 Ya" featuring his OutKast partner Andre 3000. The track had reportedly been intended for Big Boi's solo debut album Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty but didn't make the cut. The brand-new track is a rare collaboration between the two artists, who have done mostly solo work since their 2006 Idlewild soundtrack album. "Lookin 4 Ya" is now out in a "Jedi remix" featuring new verses from both musicians.

Houses is a duo made up of Dexter Tortoriell and Megan Messina, a couple who began making music together after moving from the US mainland to Hawaii. The duo is working on a debut album, All Night, which is due out October 19, and has just offered up the song "Soak It Up" from that LP as a free download. We All Want Someone to Shout For (www.weallwantsomeone.org) writes, "It's a light airy number that sounds like it could be playing to a beautiful sunrise that leaves you speechless."
