The Nashville band, Under Great Lights, is one of our favorite new acts of 2014 and today they are back with a new release in the form of a lyric video (done by Will Weyer) for a brand new song “4:20″. While the song clearly has a home with any stoner, the overall song is true to the UGL brand with nothing but upbeat, positive, fun vibes. If you missed their previous releases, including their hit “This Must Be Love”, check them out here. The guys are gearing up for their debut EP release next month, so give them a follow on Twitter and enjoy!
Trey Palms has been on GMAD three times this year (with my personal favorite being Back Of My Mind), and today he is back with a new release entitled “Guys Like Us”. For this song he collaborated with Dave Edwards, the mastermind behind multiple hits on HypeMachine, and added some amazing lyrics including “I used to chase the women, but now I chase the fame, but who could I be kidding, it’s pretty much the same”. While the first 15 seconds may make you think of the old Sam Adams sound, Trey has proven over the past year how versatile he is. This is his last single release before dropping his Image Is Nothing EP next month. Enjoy!

2pac‘s “Changes” is arguably one of the best hip-hop songs of all time. Featuring vocals by talent, the 1998 single illustrates the struggles of living in the ghetto.

Gazzo’s “Changes remix” has been teased by him at Electric Adventure and Moonrise festivals this month where its progressive-house beat and jazzy instrumentals easily connects dance music audiences with traditional fans of hip-hop.

Today Huey Mack releases the first single off his upcoming project and the song couldn’t be any more fitting for the journey we have watched him on the past 4 years. In this M9 directed video, Huey Mack goes back to his West Virginia roots and shoots some guns, rides some RVs, and posts up in the scenic hills of WV. The song describes his personal journey from his mother’s basement to taking his music across the nation, and even the world. Huey has been maturing his sound over the last 12 months, and we can easily say this next project is his best work yet. Give him a follow on Twitter and enjoy!

It’s not often that Flying Lotus raps, but when he does he takes on the ghostly cartoon alter ego Captain Murphy. You may remember his first appearance with Earl Sweatshirt on the track “Between Friends” and now he’s teamed up with Adult Swim from Cartoon Network. Not only has AS released a short video introducing the world to the backstory of Captain Murphy, they even went as far as to feature his new track “Cosplay” as one of their Sixteen Singles in Sixteen Weeks compilation. There’s an eerie, lo-fi quality to the track but it still has the fundamental sound we’ve come to expect from Flylo. Watch The Birth of Captain Murphy below and grab the download of “Cosplay” for free. Enjoy.
