WATCH: Keith Ape – It G Ma
This video raises so many unanswerable questions in my mind and heart – Who are these people? Where did they come from? How does this video not have more views? Whose apartment is this? How do they afford such epic clothing/jewellery? What are they even saying?
Why will I never be this cool?!
LISTEN: Leon Bridges
25 year old Texan, Leon Bridges, is the reincarnation of Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, and everything else good and beautiful about 1960s soul. What a striking voice. (Thanks Man Repeller for this recommendation!)

CH-CHECK: Silent Jay – Summervibin’ Playlist
Melbourne based producer, singer, instrumentalist, and DJ, Silent Jay has made a pretty little summer playlist for your sonic consumption. You can check it out in full on local blog, Three Thousand, but for now, here’s a taste:
GO: To a gig!
If you are in Melbourne tonight, go out to see some live music! Vic Mensa is playing The Corner Hotel, RatKing are playing Ding Dong Lounge, Benjamin Booker is playing The Northcote Social Club, and Connan Mockasin is playing Howler. (Okay admittedly the last one is sold out, but you could get crafty widdit if you really wanted to)
Check out all of the above at Laneway Festival this Saturday – Tickets here.
