New music of the week is Los Angeles-based alt-country collective Burroughs. In the span of less than a year, they have become one of California’s most exciting and sought after Americana bands.

I am really digging Autumn in June’s new track HEROin Kidz featuring rich melodies, hip-hop beats and raw lyrics that shine a light on some of life’s darkest realities. Growing up on the streets of South Central, Los Angeles, Autumn In June’s childhood was saturated by violence, gang culture and a community revere for gangster rap music. Despite this, he took a leap of faith and began to experiment with an array of music rarely heard. His local hood soon gave him the name of Autumn In June as they considered him to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. A year later, he is now hood famous with his unique blend of indie pop, dance and electro. Take a listen below
