What's New(s)?

Gucci Mane drops two new mixtapes today

Gucci Mane is no stranger to a multi-album release day. Last year in August, the ATL rapper issued three mixtapes under the World War 3 Volume 1 banner and today the incarcerated artist saw the trend continue with World War 3D.

Two out of the three color-themed records (Purple Album and Green Album) appeared today, and White Album with Peewee Longway will be unveiled on iTunes sometime soon. The former features all new tracks from Brick Squad associate and general oddball Young Thug, while Green Album sees the appearance of slippery trio Migos. Though Gucci mostly sticks to the role of zany curator, the two tapes have more than enough of Guwop to last until the next project inevitably drops.

(You can stream the Purple Album & Green Album(s) here and here, and listen to "Panoramic Roof" from Purple Album below.)

Real Estate offer an acoustic cover of Weezer's "Say It Ain't So"


No that's not a misprint seen above. In a live, acoustic session for the French music site La Blogoth√®que remarkably laidback indie-pop band Real Estate covered Weezer's biting 1994 classic "Say It Ain't So". Granted Real Estate members Martin Courtney, Matt Mondanile, and Alex Bleeker largely defanged the ferocious power-pop standard with their acoustic guitars and mellifluous vocals, but they still maintain the song's undeniable replayability. 

You can see the band tackle the Blue Album cut at the 17 minute mark here, which is preceded by a story of Mondanile and a blue-haired Courtney meeting at Warped Tour. In addition, Real Estate play choice tracks like "Crime" from new album Atlas and  "Easy" from 2011's Days, along with the unreleased effort "White Light" which is set to appear as a B-side on an upcoming single.
