While Dia Frampton didn’t win NBC’s inaugural season of The Voice, the runner-up isn’t letting that keep her down. As she begins to promote her forthcoming debut album, Red, which is due out on December 6, the pop star has enlisted the services of already-established Kid Cudi to draw attention. “Don’t Kick The Chair” refers to Frampton’s urging to not let unfortunate occurrences get you down in life, but to pick yourself up and move on. See the lyric video above, and be on the lookout for good things from the up-and-comer.

As Play Cloths let loose their Holiday 2011 Mixtape earlier today, one of the more intriguing tracks featured on the project has since been circulating around the internet. The record features a quartet of emcees, namely a few Odd Future artists, topped off by frontman Tyler, the Creator. Our overall impression is that it definitely feels like an OF track, but we’re actually not mad at it. Have a listen for yourself, below.

After disappearing for a few years, Brooklyn-based indie outfit Chairlift is on the comeback. The band, which has downsized from trio to duo, has been busy preparing their sophomore album for Columbia Records, Something, and has been giving fans a taste of it over the past few months with songs such as “Sidewalk Safari.” Now, they’ve returned with “Met Before,” another track from the forthcoming LP. As Pitchfork points out, this one takes cues from the 1980s and U.K. new wave, and has a bigger feel than many of the songs on 2008′s Does You Inspire You. Press play below.
