Alexander Spit: A Breathtaking Trip (EP)

For some reason, Los Angeles artist Alexander Spit is still flying under the radar, and I have no idea why.

This week, Spit released ‘A Breathtaking Trip EP’, a free record for his fans.

With a full album due for release later on in the year, this 5-track self-produced EP is a great indication of what we can expect.

Check out my review of the record and cop the free download.

Azealia Banks: Liquorice

Last time Azealia Banks released a video, it pretty much went viral in an instant, and that was the video for her song ‘212’ (I suggest you Youtube it if you haven’t seen/heard it yet) so she had a lot to live up to with her visuals for her next single, ‘Liquorice’.

Already a fan of the song itself, I didn’t really care what the accompanying visuals to this track was like but I watched it, and she did a pretty good job, turning everyone’s expectations upside down. So fresh!!
