Hippo Campus – Bambi
Atmosphere – Virgo
Atmosphere‘s new video also heralds a new album: Mi Vida Local, due out Oct. 5. The lead single feels clear-eyed and tender; Slug gets vulnerable over acoustic strumming. Jason Goldwatch’s video finds the rapper on a long train ride, repping gems like First Avenue and Hanif Abdurraqib’s book They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us (which contains a stunning essay on Atmosphere).
Bad Bad Hats – Nothing Gets Me High
Bad Bad Hats make a lot out of a little in this lovely video; stick around for the noodling portion almost three minutes in. They recently performed “Nothing Gets Me High” — and two more songs from Lightning Round — in The Current’s studio.
Bailey “26” Cogan – Capacity
As much as Bailey Cogan enjoys working with 26 BATS!, they also thrive working on their own. Cogan shot and edited this contemplative video for “Capacity,” a song from their solo electronic album 26 BEATS!.
Lerado – Lost
Rapper Lerado slides into a swampy Sad Balmain beat for this track from Shark Fin Soup.
