If you didn’t already know, Childish Gambino is the rapping alter-ego of Community star Donald Glover. His newest mixtape, Royalty, dropped yesterday, and it features RZA, Ghostface Killa, and Beck. But it's the voice who ends Royalty that really has us BUST-ies excited.
The fabulous Tina Fey appears on the final track, “Real Estate,” spitting some sick rhymes. With her classically awkward style, Fey half-raps “We droppin’ racks ... Read More

The masterminds behind the "Call Me Maybe" Barack Obama remix are at it again, this time using the smooth stylings of Justing Bieber's "If I Was Your Boyfriend." Let the president serenade you in this cut together video. Although he cannot really be your boyfriend (Michelle would probably be ticked), you can wonder as to what the president would really do as your man.
Would he sit by the fire with you and eat fondue like the Biebz? Fly you to Hawaii to show you ... Read More

Dream-psych duo Peaking Lights’ third full-length album, Lucifer, is their most accessible yet. Out June 19th on Mexican Summer in the US and on Weird World June 18th in the U.K, it follows last year’s release of the incredible summer lovin’ 936. This latest album contains a similar meditative atmosphere, with grooving rhythms and rich textures, but it's gentler than their 2011 record. Lucifer is comparatively more like a ... Read More
