Things are moving super fast! A little too fast! We can’t keep up with all the good stuff that drops every day on the interwebs. While we try post every new track, album, mixtape, video, and MP3 download that we love on the site, it’s impossible to post everything, which means some quality newness gets missed. So, we serve up The Leftovers.

Georgia-born songwriter BOSCO has unveiled the video for her latest single entitled “CAM4U.”
“The black and white sections of the video were inspired by Missy Elliot (Can’t Stand The Rain) and Michael Jackson (Scream). The other scene was inspired by Hype Williams (Belly). Beings that I am a 90s baby, I’m heavily influenced by this era- especially the shiny suit Puff Daddy and Mase vibe. Hype Williams was one of my favorite video directors and his signature angles that he was known for I aimed to capture that aesthetic.”
The song was produced by Sene from denitia and sene. Watch above.

Jack White’s Third Man Records have announced that Shabazz Palaces will record a live, direct-to-acetate LP at the label’s Nashville studios later this month. The recording will take place on January 17th, according to a statement on Third Man’s website. The announcement reads as follows:
Very few records from last year got us as excited about the current state and hopeful for the future state of music as Shabazz Palaces’ Lese Majesty. Easily the most oft-spun record on the Third Man office turntable in the second half of 2014, it was imperative that we bless the beginning of 2015 with a live direct-to-acetate recording from these psychedelic warriors from the Pacific Northwest. Shabazz Palaces’ obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering it’s own sonic boom. We couldn’t be more excited to host Shabazz Palaces in our Blue Room transcribing their astral suites direct-to-acetate for a live audience, on Saturday January 17th we all blast off together.
