Observer’s Playlist of the Week: 9/6

Jason Walsh, Staff Reporter

Danny Brown — “Old”
“Old” is a single from Danny Brown’s upcoming debut album, “OLD,” which is due out Sept. 30. Although Brown’s been on the mixtape circuit for a while, this will be his first proper album. The guest list includes, among others, A$AP Rocky, Purity Ring, Freddie Gibbs, Charli XCX, Schoolboy Q and Rustie, so it’s got that going for it.

Eminem — “Berzerk”
It’s a new Eminem song. It kinda sounds like Beastie Boys. “The Marshall Mathers LP 2” is out Nov. 5th. That’s all.

DJ Rashad — “I Don’t Give A Fuck”
This has been out since the middle of summer, but it’s still fantastic. DJ Rashad, a veteran of Chicago’s footwork scene, sitsa somewhere between trap and techno, although way less aggressive than people like TNGHT, who produced some of the beats for “Yeezus” and operate in similar trap and techno spaces. Keep your eyes and ears on DJ Rashad. His album “Double Cup” is out Oct. 22 on Hyperdub.

Arctic Monkeys — “Stop The World I Wanna Get Off With You”
The Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album “AM” is due out next week. They’ve released three good singles so far; “Stop The World I Wanna Get Off With You” might be better than any of them, and it didn’t make the album so hopefully that is a good sign (and not a sign that they are terrible at editing).

Jacuzzi Boys — “Be My Prism”
Jacuzzi Boys make the kind of fuzzy, melodic garage rock that I have a huge soft spot for. 2013 has been a banner year for garage rock and punk with great new albums from Mikal Cronin, FIDLAR, Diarrhea Planet and The So So Glos. Here’s to hoping that Jacuzzi Boys self-titled album, out next week, is just as good.
