This is the second year that Cartoon Network franchise Adult Swim has put together an awesome weekly singles program. Last year, they offered free tracks from artists like Madvillian, Black Lips, LCD Soundsystem, and Cults, and this year's lineup has thus far been killer as well. Unlike the traditional singles program (Sub Pop has successfully pulled off several such programs over the years), the Adult Swim incarnation is absolutely free, and you can find it here.
The concept is such: Each Tuesday, they release a new, unreleased single by an artist they like--and who has agreed to give them this new song--and all you have to do in exchange is notice the Kia ads on the top of the page and maybe think about buying their compact SUVs or whatever. That's it!
The point of all this after the jump . . .
So today, the Adult Swim 2011 Singles Program released a fabulous new track from New Jersey neo-hip hop producer Clams Casino. It contains all the swirling "based", low-bpm sounds that makes his music sound so epic, with a semi-cheesy synth line that puts you in a suit on the Atlantic City boardwalk instead of smoking opium on Juhu Beach, or scaling a Tibetan mountain peak, like much of his material.
Expect tracks from JJ & N-Yo, El-P, and Cerebral Ballzy over the next three weeks that will wrap up the summer singles session in style.
