Here are some Hypem Highlights before I head off to bed.
I will be posting something about The Weeknd here soon. The House of Balloons mixtape is absolutely phenomenal. Seriously. Listen to The Weeknd now, or be the one whose out of the loop in a few months. House of Balloons is one of the few mixtapes that creeps into my playlist between my Odd Future and Kendrick Lamar listening sessions these days.
I’ve heard ‘Love Lust’ by King Charles before, I can’t tell you where, I can’t tell you when, but I loved it. For some reason I forgot about pretty soon after that though, but now that its back hanging around in my consciousness I’m sure I’ll be listening more in the near future.
The Roots have released the lineup for their annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia. The lineup can be found here at Brooklyn Vegan. Tickets for the event, which is to be held on June 4th, go on sale March 4th at 10:00 am.
