Tyler, The Creator plans to release his album Wolf tomorrow, and both the critics and fans are giving the Odd Future general his props on this one.

While Odd Future videos have always been entertaining, Tyler also stepped up his game in the visual department. Watch below as he brings a Mattel themed nightmare to life in the visuals to the Pharrell featured "IFHY."

I'll never forget interviewing Passion Pit in college back in '09. I wasn't originally assigned to sit down with the group, but after the first interviewer pulled out I had only 15 minutes to do a little research on the band. Needless to say, the interview was pretty horrible but the guys were pretty cool with the fact that I knew little about them.
Fast forward to 2012 and Passion Pit is one of my favorite bands. Stream their sophomore album Gossamer below, before it drops on July 24th. Thanks NPR for yet another dope First Listen.

Usher's album Looking 4 Myself is officially in stores today, and he's made the project available for stream to let you preview the record before/if you buy.
