Rye Rye revealed this week her final tracklist to her debut album ‘Go! Pop! Bang!’ that will include The Neptunes upbeat production “Shake, Twist, Drop” that features also rapper Tyga. “We did a drum beat. To me, it sounds like just a bunch of drums. It’s real dope. It’s an uptempo beat, of course,” she explained last year to Rap-Up.com. “It sounds like tribal drums, to be exact. M.I.A. said it reminded her of home.” Check out the tracklist below.

Just a few weeks back Mansion On The Moon came through Atlanta, GA to play the city’s newest premier mid-sized venue grand opening, Terminal West. Mansions On The Moon is comprised of Beni Haze, Lane, and Ted. Beni and Lane have been creatively working together for the better part of 5 years and when Ted linked up with the boys some amazing music was created together and Mansions formed elegantly out of that. During the past few months MOTM has been on the road in promotion of their release Lightyears, on the tour under the same name. I got the chance to check out a short set at the Velveeta Room during SXSW and ended up meeting a few of the guys, Jeff, their touring bass player, and Lane, the drummer during one of the nights at The Illmore.
How’s the tour been going since SXSW?
Ben: It’s been awesome. We went from Texas to Lawrence, all the way up to Milwaukee and Chicago, down to here and everywhere in between. It’s been cool to connect with fans and see what kinds of markets are hot. It’s great to see the response to the album.
During SX this year you guys brought out Pow, who we featured on the site recently. Do you like to incorporate different elements and collaborations to your live set?
Ben: If we can, sure, absolutely. Here in Atlanta tonight we’ve got a really close friend coming out, India. Just like Pow, we love talented people so if the opportunity comes up to collaborate then we like to do it.
How did MOTM hook up with Pharrell?
Ben: That happened through our buddy Charley and a friend from Illusive media. I’m from VA and kinda worked in the Timbaland studio at his home spot. At one point I lived with Charley and when I went back to VA he hooked all that stuff up. It all came together through Illusive.
Kaleidoscopic indie pop duo Chester French—singer D.A. Wallach and multi-instrumentalist Maxwell Drummey. The pair hooked up as freshmen at Harvard University in 2003, performing as a five-piece band at local bars and recording their debut EP in the on-campus recording studio. Funding their own sessions by engineering for other musicians, the pair finished their debut album Love The Future (and, y’know… graduated) in 2007. The album caught the attention of none other than Pharrell Williams, whose Star Trak label released the She Loves Everybody EP the following year.
Their second full-length album (title TBA) drops this June via K-LP/Karmaloops Reocrds. Sounds Like: Classic, endearing pop melodies doused in adventurous, relentlessly inventive arrangements touching upon everything from twee bedroom pop to aggressive electro beats and buzzsaw electric guitars. Expect to hear a little bit of everything you love… on each and every single tune. For Fans Of: Of Montreal, Beck, The Beach Boys, Tub Ring, and other forward-thinking musical wunderkinds.
