Instead of rehashing how clever and mysterious The Weeknd's rotation through twitter and the blog circles seemed, or speculating over what this means for r&b, I'll just rearticulate Buttermilk Sessions' comment at 47 seconds into this Soundcloud embed; "this song is the shit". There's enough sex, drugs, and r&b on this joint to give any after party playlist a bump in the right direction.
Nods from Diplo and official remix releases on labels like Ghostly/Rough Trade/Arts & Crafts say all that's gotta be said about Star Slinger. His signature glitched out sound has been a lifesaver to me in LA traffic. Streaming the entire Soundcloud page is highly recommended.
