Intro to . . . Funk
Revisit the golden age of hip-hop where sonic innovation and giant pants reigned supreme. The explosive sound of funk – those popping bass lines, drum breaks and deep grooves – is captured here in this introduction to the genre that changed pop music, fueled hip-hop and still rules the dance floor.

Impulse Records Begins
Impulse Records was the premier jazz label of the 1960s. Headlined by the bestselling John Coltrane, Impulse proved that the avant-garde could be mainstream while showing how ahead of the sound curve such giants as Duke Ellington and Coleman Hawkins still were. Here are the label’s first releases, including masterpieces by Oliver Nelson, Charles Mingus and Gil Evans.

New Releases: Late Aug. 2014
If you haven’t tuned into FKA Twigs’ take on R&B yet, take a listen to the airy “Lights On”. Building on that futuristic R&B sound, be sure to check out the remix of Haim’s “My Song 5” with a guest verse from A$AP Ferg. Plenty of other great tracks below including the return of Blonde Redhead and original country outlaw Billy Joe Shaver getting cozy with friend Willie Nelson.

2014 VMAs
Still feeling the love for Beyoncé? Our VMA playlist may not have a video of Blue Ivy looking adorable, but it does have music from all of the winners and nominees.

Indie Love Songs
Forget about ironic distance, these are romantic songs where indie artists wear their hearts firmly pinned to Pendleton sleeves. It doesn’t matter if it’s chillwave, post-punk, indie-pop or new wave these tunes are about being crazy in love, insanely brokenhearted or mad with lust.

It was a big night for the ladies at MTV Video Music Awards, with women representing half of the evening’s major awards and Beyonce — as you might expect — dominating both in terms of wins and performance.

Video of the Year went to Miley Cyrus for her performance atop a piece of heavy construction equipment in “Wrecking Ball.” Katy Perry took home Best Female for her “Dark Horse” video; Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea‘s “Problem” won a Best Pop statue; and Sia won Best Choreography for “Chandelier.”

Beyonce’s Drunk In Love,” a duet with husband Jay-Z, won the prize for Best Collaboration while “Pretty Hurts” brought her wins in both the Best Video With a Social Message and Best Cinematography categories.

She also gave one of the night’s most amazing performances, with a medley that spanned almost 20 minutes and included cuts from every song on her 2013 self-titled album. And all that doesn’t even include the fact that she was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement, an award she accepted with the help of Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

Other non-Beyonce winners last night included Drake (Best Hip Hop for “Hold On (We’re Going Home),” Eminem (Best Editing for “Rap God“) and Fifth Harmony (MTV Artist To Watch for “Miss Movin’ On“).

Check out the full list of winners and see photos and performances from the show here.
