Weekend Videos: Kosha Dillz – “What’s Going On Upstairs”

Last time we featured Kosha Dillz we said he was the hardest working man in hip hop and that claim still stands. . When he isn’t freestyling with the likes of A$AP Rocky and Macklemore (the awesome results of which you can see at the bottom of this post)the New Jersey emcee drops some awesome and slightly bonkers videos.

His latest offering “What’s Going On Upstairs” sees Kosha getting himself in all sorts of awkward situations to show some of the crazy shit your neighbours may or may not be getting up to behind closed doors.

This is the 4th single from his excellent 2013 ‘Awkward In A Good Way‘ album, make sure you check it out!

Lana Del Rey to release “Ultraviolence” next month

I thought I would be scarred for life after watching the now infamous 2012 SNL incident which left me (and millions) thinking whether Lana Del Rey was in actual fact a fraud. It’s time for me to admit that I’ve secretly appreciated her (recorded) music for a while. I’ve decided to do my “coming out” with this song ­ “West Coast“, the first single from her upcoming album ‘Ultraviolence ‘ (produced by The Black Keys‘ frontman Dan Auerbach).

The song has been out for a while now but the video has just been released and I’m in love with both. She performed the song for the first time at Coachella and I don’t think she could have found a more perfect place to debut her ode to the West Coast. I also need to add that the woman CAN actually sing live.

The lyrics are quite simple ( Let’s face it she’s no Bob Dylan) but it’s that simplicity underneath the apparent fakery that I like about her. All the elements are there to make ‘West Coast‘ a new weapon in her repertoire:: black/white imagery, home video bits, hollywood glamour, romantic lyrics, and of course, a bad boy.

I find this song hauntingly beautiful. It oozes vintage vibes and dark hypnotic sounds, and might actually be my favourite Lana Del Rey song to date. I remember her saying that she would end her career after her first album…. so I’m glad she pulled a Jay-Z on this one.

Weekend Videos: Kiesza – “Hideaway”

A friend recently turned me on to Canadian singer/songwriter Kiesza.  Her one take video shot in NYC for the single “Hideaway” is a joy to watch . I’ve had it on loop trying to pick up on everything that is going on behind her.

The early 90′s  tinged electro-pop acts as the perfect platform for her vocals to soar. Looking forward to more from this talent!

Hideaway” drops in March via Lokal Legend.

Weekend Videos: Adi Ulmansky – “Work It”

Adi Ulmansky‘s videos are always something to look forward to; this week she unveiled more proof that she may not actually be from earth. The video for “Work It” , created by Danna Windsor, sees the manga princess ready to conquer another planet and on her current form she is on her way to conquer our own very soon.

This is just one of the standout tracks on this summer’s excellent ‘Hurricane Girl‘ EP which saw our heroine propel herself to new heights.

Weekend Videos: Lorde – “Team”

It has been a phenomenal year for Kiwi teen sensation Lorde. Her debut album ‘Pure Heroine‘ shot to the top of the charts upon release with her particular brand of electropop containing more longevity (and crucially more heart) than Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and the likes. People are definitely taking notice as evidenced by the fact that the Vevo website crashed when Lorde dropped her video for “Team” earlier this week. This is a welcomed return for teenage pop with a little bit of weight. TRACKS: doublecougar Weekend Videos: Lorde   Team
