** Zomby‘s hugely anticipated 4AD debut, Dedication, may be his masterpiece. Stream the entire album here.

** Tyler, the Creator and Frank Ocean released their pantie-sniffing video for "She." It's a love story worthy of Anne Sexton.

** Hodgy Beats dropped a new quickie track, “April 27th,” over some serious soul-opera wailing on the beat by Uzii.

** We considered the curious case of Lil Niqo.

** How to Dress Well blended The-Dream into Mariah Carey into Stevie Nicks on his brilliant Love Yourself mix.

** Diplo agreed to go on an electronica cruise with Tommy Lee, A-Trak, Fatboy Slim and a bunch of other nutjobs. For about $1000, you can get onboard. For free, you can listen to Diplo and Douster's new track "On," a dizzying, Atari-themed fight song that’s oddly retro yet strangely fresh.

** The Guggenheim and Pedro Reyes installed an art sanatorium in downtown Brooklyn.

** Shia LaBoeuf directed Kid Cudi's new video for "Marijuana." Weed makes strange bedfellows.
