Don’t expect rap this time around.
Smokey Emery, “04”
Nomadic ambient that transcends time and place.

Stream: Bang Bangz, Red City
Houston post-punk that has the synth trails of cruising through a vacant side of town.
Civil War of Coasts Edition
Houston, NOLA, New England, LA, and NYC (technically Long Island) in this week's top 5.
SNS, The Hangover II
A rap record with party jams for the night, and harsh realities the next morning.

A K.O. of a video game-based mixtape with smooth flows and luscious beats.
