Featured New Releases

A$AP Rocky – LONG.LIVE.A$AP

As the first major release and ringleader of the A$AP Mob, A$AP Rocky is burning a path for the rest of his collective with a dynamic debut that even has the hipsters at Pitchfork singing its praises. As opposed to wading through the waters of the music industry on his own, A$AP Rocky’s collective have made him a far bigger brand than he would be by himself, with the music to back it up. While the quality of a name like Drake on “F**kin’ Problems” is a plus, is the quantity of fellow buzzworthy artists – Kendrick Lamar, Santigold, Skrillex, 2 Chainz, Schoolboy Q, etc. – is what sets this album apart as a calling card for the new class of hip-hop royalty.

The documentary “West of Memphis” will open wide across the country starting this week and musicians who supported the West Memphis Three have compiled this soundtrack of complimentary justice songs, including Eddie Vedder, Natalie Maines, Henry Rollins, Bob Dylan, Johnny Depp, Patti Smith and more.
