This week wasn’t entirely positive—Etta James passed away and the reaction to SOPA had us all worrying about our internet freedom being revoked. But chin up, there were plenty of good things happening over here at P&P. Here are some of our favorites from the week:
One of the catchiest songs we’ve heard in a minute. Welcome back, Miike Snow.
Even Brian Williams is hating on Lana after her instantly infamous SNL stint. We decided to brainstorm some ways that she might garner some respect. Awesome Photoshop work included.
It’s hard to believe, but this is the Los Angeles crew’s first video ever. Not bad.
2012 is the year of artists making their return for a sophomore album. Back at it, and she hasn’t lost a step.
Damn, Scandinavia. You are relentless with your indie pop. Shoutout to Scandinavia.
Don’t sleep on this team of talented musicians, rappers, and singers.
Another taste of the much anticipated Reign Of Terror.
We didn’t see this one coming, but this is a great surprise. Plus, there are features from Danny Brown, Childish Gambino, and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire.
After hearing this swelling, layered song, we’re really looking forward to Brad Oberhofer’s upcoming debut.
Just days after we interviewed him, the unique new rapper/producer put out his 5-track EP.
