Tunes for Tuesday: Meghan Trainor “Dear Future Husband”

Meghan Trainor’s second single “Lips Are Movin,” after her mega hit “All About That Bass” did decently on the charts.

Tunes for Tuesday: Grimes “Realiti”

This week has blessed us with a brand new Grimes track. Sad to say this is not one that will be on her forthcoming album, which is supposed to be out sometime later this year. Instead this is from the scrapped album from last September.

The note posted along with the video: “REALiTi is “a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. REALiTi,” is a rough cut: “i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha.”

If this is the sort of thing they’re cutting, how awesome is the new album going to be? Or will tracks like this make us wish for that lost album?
