Throughout the week, a whole lot of material gets posted here on XLR8R.

In the interest of making it easier for everyone to catch up, every Friday we present The Lowdown, a weekly wrap-up of the top 10 tidbits from our site. Read more »

Stream the Nostalgic New EP from Conspicuously Named Producer Luke Warm

For whatever myriad of reasons, artists sometimes can't or don't want to reveal their true identities on certain releases.
