Brockhampton - "1999 WILDFIRE"

The fuck am I looking at—a Brockhampton music video that's not in 4:3? Y'all were right: RCA changed them!

Piss-take aside, "1999 WILDFIRE" is the All-American Boyband's first official single of the year, promoting their upcoming album The Best Years of Our Lives, and it's cause for celebration if only because it's the type of banger that listeners seem to wish "Tonya" had been. It's not a bad one at that, with its OutKast-worthy hook and, damn, that bearface breakdown. Glad to hear him being integrated into the group's music more and more. These teaser tracks aren't giving us at TND much of a reason not to be optimistic about the new album. Hopefully that'll still be a summer drop.

BROCKHAMPTON - "Dirt"

BROCKHAMPTON is an abstract hip hop supergroup from Texas, comprised of Kevin Abstract, JOBA, Ameer Vann, Matt Champion, Dom McLennon, Rodney Tenor, and Merlyn Wood. Last week, they dropped an intriguing single on Fool's Gold called "Dirt," which you can check out above. I dig the strangeness and think these guys have a ton of potential.
