Kendrick Lamar & SZA: 'All The Stars'

The recent announcement that Kendrick Lamar would produce and curate the soundtrack to Marvel's upcoming Black Panther movie was pretty exciting.  Following the news came this new song, 'All The Stars'.  This one puts Kendrick Lamar on the mic with Top Dawg labelmate SZA.  They both had incredible albums in 2017, so it's a perfect start to 2018 for them to release such a big single together.  Preorder the album here, if only to keep watch on the track list when it's finally revealed.  The album is slated for release in February.

Open Mike Eagle's NPR Tiny Desk Concert

Open Mike Eagle had one of the best albums of 2017, that's no surprise.  He took to NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series with songs from Brick Body Kids Still Daydream and beyond, and the results are pretty amazing.  '(How Could Anybody) Feel At Home' and 'Daydreaming In The Projects' come from the album, and 'Very Much Money' is a perfect finale, taken from Dark Comedy.  He's joined by Jordan Katz, Josh Lopez and Brandon Owens for what is an instant favourite Tiny Desk Concert.  Watch below!
