Taco of Odd Future Talks DJing, Show Prep, and His Current Top Tracks
First things first, where does the name “Taco” come from and when did you get into music?
That’s something that I wish I had a proper answer to. It started as a joke and it never stopped. In some weird way, it makes sense for me. I didn’t get into making music until recently—just by trying random things. No rapping or singing though. I started DJing at 17 or 18. Christian [Clancy] and Brad [Scoffern] just kind of threw me on stage and the rest is history.

Tribeca Film Festival 2017: ‘The Boy Downstairs’ Review
A New York based romantic comedy is nothing new—adding some odd, quirky dialogue that sounds like, well, dialogue, as opposed to real people having real conversations certainly does not help add authenticity or anything new to the tired genre. First time writer and director Sophie Brook’s The Boy Downstairs, while a passable and more or less competent film, falls victim to these tropes that are becoming increasingly common in films about young people living in the city (Noah Baumbach’s…
Verité is the Independent Artist Rivaling Record Labels
When VÉRITÉ’s Kelsey Byrne, surfaced back in 2014, she was still waitressing at Applebee’s in Times Square. With ethereal vocals and an air of mystery, her single “Strange Enough” caught the ears of the pop scene and she began to rise following a show with Neon Gold Records. Making music runs in her blood: Byrne grew up with a musician for a father and even played in a female punk band—something that’s reflective of her fierce independence when it comes to making music her way….
Ariana Grande and Cashmere Cat Can’t “Quit” Slaying Together
There are certain pairings in life that are just reliably great: cookies and milk, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Now, we can officially add Cashmere Cat and Ariana Grande to the list. The dynamic duo just released their third collaboration, “Quit,” off of the producer’s debut album 9, due out tomorrow, April 28. And to the shock of nobody, it’s an absolute stunner.
Cashmere’s soft synths and tropical elements, including a beautiful pan flute this time around, mesh perfectly with…
Premiere: Listen to RENÉ’s Cathartic Single “I.N.T.O.”
“I don’t like the idea of being in a box,” up-and-coming British artist RENÉ announced near the start of our interview, establishing her impressive ambition straight off the bat. “I don’t like the idea of being defined by one particular genre. I grew up in a lot of cultures and have a diverse range of genres that I listen to.”
It’s this refusal to define herself that led to the sound of her new single “I.N.T.O.,” an acronym for “I’m Not the One,” exclusively premiering o…
Listen to HAIM’s New Single “Right Now”
The unthinkable has happened: HAIM has returned. Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim made good on their promise from last week and unveiled their first single in nearly three years, “Right Now,” this morning. The trio also announced that their highly anticipated sophomore album, Something to Tell You, will be released on July 7.
The new track is a return-to-form to their signature brooding rock sound, but with the mystery stepped up just a couple notches. The slow-burning track, produced by Ar…
