Album Updates

After an explosive 2008 it has been a quiet year for rapper Lupe Fiasco, my impression was that the Chicago emcee was working on his swan song, the triple album LUPE.N.D. However, today Lupe has dropped the ball he is giving us another acronym titled record due later this year, he will give is L.A.S.E.R.S. sometime this fall. The single "Shining Down," is due out soon and features Fiasco's friend and backing vocalist Mathew Santos, the voice behind the "Superstar," hook. Take a look at the trailer for L.A.S.E.R.S below

Riceboy Sleeps, the side project of Sigur Ros front man Jonsi Birgisson and his boyfriend Alex Somers have shown off the cover to their new record and were nice enough to post the band's single "Boy 1904" as a free download on their site. Take a look at the cover below, to download the track head on over to

Brooklyn's finest Beastie Boys have also shown off the cover to their latest record, Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. The album comes out in September, take a look at the cover below.
