  • AraabMuzik (a.k.a. Abraham Orellana) has announced the release of his latest mixtape, For Professional Use Only. The mixtape features “The Prince is Coming” and “Never Have to Worry,” the two tracks that Orellana debuted over the past two weeks, along with eighteen more tracks. Check it out over on!

  • Speaking of album releases, Four Tet (a.k.a. Kieran Hebden) will be reissuing his landmark 2003 album Rounds in honor of the record’s tenth anniversary. The reissue, due out on Domino on May 13, will include a special bonus disc featuring a live set Hebden recorded in Copenhagen around the time of the album’s original release, according to Pitchfork.
  • Next up, we have some festival announcements! According to Consequence of Sound, the SXSW line-up has been finalized, and acts like Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and The Flaming Lips have been added to the already-impressive roster. Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival also announced its line-up yesterday, and it’s also pretty stacked: Yo La Tengo, Neko Case, Low, and dozens of other bands will all make appearances.
  • Finally, as we promised yesterday, here’s the new video from Tyler, the Creator. “Domo 23,” the first single off Tyler’s forthcoming album, Wolf, finds the rapper wrestling with fellow Odd Future member Domo Genesis, while Earl Sweatshirt acts as the referee. Watch the video below.
