Milk Crate #37

So…you are already getting tired of the views offered by Drake’s new album, huh? I get it. It’s good, but it’s not the knock out of the park that you were hoping for. Also, let’s face it…it’s just less fun listening to the mainstream ish. Pretention only works if you have something to be pretentious about. You can’t get all high and mighty on pop culture whilst finagling with a Drake dance move and wondering when your hotline is going to bling. Just doesn’t work that way.

But you can TOTALLY get pretentious about discovering these five artists before stardom hit. You can thank us for your hipster mustache cred later.

If this is the first time you’ve visited Milk Crater, allow me to explain. When you listen to a track, you aren’t just listening to music, you’re saving lives. Every time you discover a new tune, we donate to charity. We give 90% of our ad revenue straight to charity to make the world a better place. That way our pretention can live on indefinitely ūüôā

If you like what we are doing, give us a like on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Only a few more hours until the weekend hits, and Milk Crate #35 is chock full of musical goodness to help you make it until 5 o’clock when the revelry can commence!
