Tommy Cash
"Pussy Money Weed"

24 Jan 2018
'Money Pussy Weed' is so called because these are pretty much the three cliches that proliferate in rap; so Tommy Cash turns expectations on their heads with his self-directed video.

19 Jan 2018
The lead single from Jack White's new album Boarding House Reach, 'Connected By Love' feels disappointingly lacking in freshness.
