[Songs of the Day] 2/11/14 (Feat. Wiz Khalifa, Klaxons, The Black Lips and more)

Tuesday got a healthy dose of new music, and we have all of it gathered here for you once again for our ‘songs of the day’. Starting things off is the honky-tonk sounds of Denny & The Jets with “Mexican Coke” and Klaxons with their heavy-handed dream pop arrangement in “Children of the Sun”. Vic Mensa capitalized on a successful tour with Disclosure by releasing a freestyle over the UK duo’s track “When A Fire Starts to Burn” off their album, Settle, and fellow Chicagoans Roman Flowrs and Donnie Trumpet teamed up over a Cam Osteen-produced beat in the soulful “Lake Shore Drive” and theWHOevers round out the middle of the map, offering up a J Dilla tribute in “Sooner or Later”. Lil Boosie teases his post-prison plans, getting together with Boston George and Future on “Rich Off Lean” while Mr. Carmack gives listeners a new groove in his instrumental, “Free Baby” and Kelis returns with a new song in “Rumble”. Yumi Zouma‘s “A Long Walk Home For Parted Lovers” gets a remix from Wild Nothings, Harry Fraud remixes JOYWAVE’s “Tongues” and we get new tracks from The Black Lips, Beverly, Wiz Khalifa and a talented newcomer in Barney Bones. Check it all out, streaming below.
