“Premade” by Junior Varsity

Released August 2021—Spotify
It’s been interesting watching the slow but sure resurgence of 90s alt rock, but with modern rap cadences and ad-libs. “Premade” is an anthemic take on this (re)emerging sound.

This thing is timeless. Enjoy this new live rendition above.

“VA Y VEN” by Tainy & Yandel

Every radio dance song is going to sound like this new disco for the next year so might as well embrace it. I’m not mad.

“Larabar” by Wet

Released August 2021—Spotify
Wet is back and watering tear ducts everywhere with this gorgeous new piece. Love the keys and the vocal effects, definitely hearing some Bon Iver / Francis & the Lights influence. Also, Eric Hu did their logo.

“She Wanna” by Guapdad 4000 feat. P-Lo

Released 2021—Spotify
This hilarious, extremely NSFW jam is for all my yay area hyphy subscribers. Ghost ride a whip this weekend.
