Top music releases from the last two weeks

Every Tuesday new music is released and you get immediate access to stream it, with no advertising, no waiting, just the music you want to hear. Here are highlights from the past two weeks (released June 2 and 9, 2015). See all the latest here.

  • Drones by Muse
    Alternative Pop/Rock. Arena rock political protest album

Louis 'Thunder Thumbs' Johnson (1955-2015)

Best known for his bass lines in his group, The Brothers Johnson, and his later work with Michael Jackson (especially "Billie Jean" and "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough") and one of my personal favorites, "Get the Funk ouf ma Face"; Louis Johnson died last Thursday at the age of 60. His ideas have been recycled for a ton of hip-hop tracks, but you owe it to yourself to pay tribute to the original. Stream some today.

This Week's New Music

Every Tuesday new music is released and you get immediate access to stream it, with no advertising, no waiting, just the music you want to hear. Here are highlights from this week, released May 18, 2015. See all the latest here.

  • Saturns Pattern by Paul Weller. British Traditional Rock. A "spacey, soulful rebirth".

Wilder Mind by Mumford and Sons

For their third studio album, Mumford has changed things up by doing away with the banjo and accordion that fans have loved, and over to electric guitars, synth chords and a full drum kit. This album revolves around love with songs like "Tompkins Square" in which Marcus sings about love lost. This album is undeniably rock and while some fans may find it hard to adjust to this new sound, I think that if they stick with it they will find that at the heart of this album it's still Mumford.

What it is! Funky Soul and Rare Grooves (1967-1977)

If you've ever appreciated George Clinton's desire to make your funk un-cut, this is 5+ hours of bliss "bound to take the average overthinking funk freak to new levels of nerd-dom" (allmusic.com). This is 91 tracks from ten years of classic funk from the archives of Warner Bros., Atlantic, Reprise, Atco, and smaller labels like Cotillion, Curtom, Alston, and Jonie.
