New Music Monday: Run the Jewels, Ryan Adams & Major Lazer


We kickstart this week with a Record Store Day exclusive from Run the Jewels, a live album by Ryan Adams, and the weed-inspired first episode of Major Lazer's new animated series.

Run the Jewels - Bust No Moves (RSD Exclusive)

To mark Saturday's Record Store Day, American hip-hop duo Run the Jewels released an exclusive 12" featuring a collection of familiar tracks such as 'Love Again', but most strikingly, it was the inclusion of a new, previously unreleased track, 'Bust No Moves', which stole the show. Enlisting the vocals of Arkansas rapper SL Jones, El-P's spooky under beat twists beneath the duo's chaotic themed raps about smoking weed and riots. Luke Nightingale

Run the Jewels will be appearing at OFF, Outlook, Roskilde, Les EurockéennesPrimavera Sound, NOS Primavera Sound, Field Day, Reading & Leeds, Garorock, and Lollapalooza Berlin.


Ryan Adams – Ryan Adams: Live at Carnegie Hall (Album)

The thing about Ryan Adams is that for all his skill as a songwriter, vocalist and storyteller, the real magic is in that intangible poignancy that he conjures so readily. And the thing about intangible poignancy is that it is best served live, face-to-face and in the flesh. His new release – 42 tracks' worth, out tomorrow – is perhaps the closest you'll come all year, though there is still time to book yourself in for Governors Ball (New York) or Calling Festival (London).

Major Lazer - Animated Series Premiere

Last Thursday, Major Lazer premiered the first episode of his new animated series on FXX, which will go onto feature cameos from Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Travi$ Scott, and Mad Cobra. The first episode, a hilariously ridiculous tale of the pursuit of weed where Major Lazer - a sunglassed supersolider - must save a young girl who has naively got too high, is told through visuals inspired by 80s/90s animation. Watch the premiere below. Luke Nightingale

Catch Major Lazer at Les Eurockéennes and Wireless.
