Jay-Z’s 4:44 Now Available Beyond TIDAL

First f, how good is this album? You know I’m a Hov stanley so you bet I’ve been basking in this shit all week. I feel like I’ve been waiting for Jay to make this album since his un-retirement, though that’s not at all realistic because a whole bunch real life grown man shit had to happen for 4:44 to be what it is. In any event, it’s his most honest and musically cohesive project in several years and it’s a pleasure to play through, even if it is a bit a heavy listen.

If you haven’t already switched phone carriers to Sprint, or downloaded it illegally or grabbed a gratis legal copy, it is now available beyond the walled gardens TIDAL on Apple Music. Physical copies will also be arriving in stores today and they will include three bonus cuts: “Adnis,” “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family” and “ManyFacedGod.” If you have even a rudimentary understanding the internet you can probably find streams those songs somewhere out there right this minute, otherwise get your ass to an old-fashioned record store tomorrow.

Filed by Donte DishnerDonte Dishner

In October 2017, indie rock heroes finally gave fans the missing piece the comeback everyone had been anxiously awaiting: confirmation a new album due in early 2018. Following the release the album’s titular track, “Little Dark Age,” MGMT’s first single in four years, the band shared a second preview with a melodic, morbid piece called “” in December. Now, as the group nears the arrival their fourth studio album, they’ve shared a dreary, psychedelic new cut called “Hand It Over.”

Building f the second single’s inky appeal, the new tune is an enticingly gloomy, downtempo blend surf rock and syrupy synth-pop all wrapped up in distant, trailing vocalwork. As MGMT’s new album begins to take shape,  sounds to be a fitting title for the band’s upcoming work.

SoundCloud refutes audio quality reduction claims

Filed by Abbey ShoreAbbey Shore

Soundcloud has been accused of reducing its streaming quality from 128kpbs to 64kbps after users began to notice a reduction in audio quality from the beleaguered streaming giant.

The change was initially noticed by New York-based producer Direct who saw that tracks were being shown as 64kbps Opus (below), which is actually a new audio codec which is meant to sound better than a 128kbps MP3.

That hasn’t stopped legions of keyboard warriors wading in and acusing the service of covertly reducing its audio quality.

Soundcloud has since released a statement refuting the claims as “inaccurate”, and revealed that it tests new codecs all the time.

“We have been using the Opus codec (among others) since 2016, we always appreciate feedback, but these reports are inaccurate,” the statement reads.

Last year, the struggling streaming service was saved from closure at the last minute thanks to an injection of emergency funding.

If you’re really concerned about the apparent dip in quality, Direct has kindly made a Chrome extension that apparently solves the problem. 

Soundcloud recently changed their streaming format from 128kbps MP3 to 64kbps Opus. This drastically reduces the audio quality and can introduce strange artifacts.

I made & released a Chrome Extension to restore the 128kbps MP3s. Give it a try.https://t.co/hGUuxiJXYG pic.twitter.com/bYkbyhcNWd
