Duck Sauce - Duck Tape

Earlier this month A-Trak and Armand Van Helden, collectively known as Duck Sauce, dropped off their "Essential Mix" for BBC's Radio 1 featuring a solid hour of original music, including 34 unreleased demos.

That first half from the original 2 hour mix will be released on a limited edition cassette, aptly titled "Duck Tape". Preorders are happening right now on Fool's Gold, bundled with a brand new Duck Sauce t-shirt.

This just might be enough to hold fans over until their eagerly anticipated debut album, QUACK, is released early next year. Not interested in the cassette? The mix is available as a FREE download via Soundcloud.

Albert Hammond Jr. - AHJ [Full Stream]

Albert Hammond Jr. will release AHJ, a five-song EP, on October 8th and hit the road next month, including a stop at Chicago's Double Door. It's been five years since his last solo album, Como Te Llama?, but the break was needed as Hammond battled cocaine and heroin addiction.

Judging from the cover, it looks like he's got his fight back. Rude Customer is an early favorite of mine, but you can decide for yourself as the full EP is available to stream via Rolling Stone.
