First Listen: Yacht - 'Shangri-La'

NPR truly is the best when it comes to giving us free listens to new music. In fact, here's a first listen to the new Yacht release 'Shangri-La.'

Lil Wayne - Dear Anne (Stan Pt. 2) (Prod. by Swizz Beatz)

Lil Wayne has released a song that was created to be a sequel to the Eminem song "Stan." It's decidedly a much more beautiful and benevolent song than the Eminem song, seeing as how nobody kills themselves at the end, but is rapped in the form of a letter he writes to a girl named Anne. Great song. Free song. This will NOT be included in Tha Carter IV, so get it now.

Cults - Cults (2011)

Last week gave us the debut of one of my new favorite bands. I've been tracking them for a while, but this album really stuck the nail on the head. You should reaaally check this badboy out. It's full of sweet indie melodies that both rock and swoon and you're left with a feeling of happiness, even on the saddest rhymes. It's really a great listen.
