[NEW MUSIC] The Strokes – Machu Picchu by wearesme

This is the fourth track that our ears have been treated to from the upcoming release, following Under Cover Of Darkness, You’re So Right and Life Is Simple In The Moonlight. The oddly named Machu Picchu – the album opener – has the classic Strokes swagger slapped all over it and could well be our favourite tune yet. What do you guys think?

Anticipation is growing for the release of The Strokes new album Angles, which is out on March 22 – 10 days to go!

“Life a movie, I’m Lucas / I war with any star; can’t put me in a box like new kicks”

Sway came with FIRE at the Lupe Fiasco Lasers release show in New York and had the crowd in the palm of his hand, with this captivating freestyle.

Despite lack of any ‘overground’ recognition in the UK, Sway continues to come with consistent material and his feature on Lupe Fiasco’s new album is a massive achievement for the boy from our neck of the woods; North London. Could 2011 finally be his year? SME hope so.

We never normally post ‘snippets’ but in Kanye’s case we always make exceptions. And if this were an aircraft, it would be described as a UFO. But it’s not, so we’ll move on from that thought.

SME have no idea whether this is old material or new; it could be a track that didn’t make the cut for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or a song set to feature on Kanye’s upcoming summer album. As soon as we find out more, we’ll be sure to inform you. Until then, enjoy the snippet of Kanye pouring his broken heart out.



[NEW MUSIC] The Strokes – You’re So Right by wearesme

With every track that we hear, SME are getting more and more excited about the upcoming The Strokes album Angles. This is the second track which we have been treated to, and although a complete contrast to the upbeat Under Cover Of Darkness; Your’re So Right is equally as brilliant, with is dark punk rock vibe.

You’re So Right will be the B-Side to Under Cover Of Darkness; the lead single of the albumĀ Angles which is released on March 22nd.

[NEW MUSIC] Jamie Woon – Lady Luck by wearesme

Receiving its world premiere on Radio 1 last night courtesy of Mistajam; Lady Luck is Jamie Woon’s next single taken from his highly anticipated debut album Mirrorwriting released in April.

Jamie is the latest artist to adopt the format of releasing a song for digital download immediately after the songs first radio airing.

The song is a nother beautiful piece of work from this supremely talented guy; a real soulful number. SME can’t wait to hear what other gems the album has to offer.

Listen to it below and head over to iTunes to download.


[FRESH VIDEO] Kanye West feat. Rihanna, Kid Cudi & Co – All Of The Lights by wearesme

After a 2 week delay; Kanye has evidently decided to punish our impatience by trying to inflict an epileptic fit through the visuals of his new Hype Williams directed video.

The opening sequence of the ‘All Of The Lights’ video sets a somewhat solemn tone; with black and white footage of a young girl walking through blighted housing on a snowy day, to the tune of the ‘All Of The Lights Interlude’. And then, BANG! It’s as if the aforementioned young girl took a right turn and walked into a Las Vegas casino on crack! And before we receive any complaints; the casino being the one on crack, not the girl.

The words of the first verse flash up on screen at lightning speed in various typeface, meanwhile Kanye is stomping on the roof of a Police car, Kid Cudi makes a cameo in that MJ jacket and Rihanna is looking as sultry and seductive as ever. Side boob anyone?

All jokes aside; if you do suffer from Epilepsy, we strongly advise you stay away. And for the rest of you; just don’t watch it with a hangover.
