Beast of the weeK : TV on the Radio - Will Do

Unrequited love in serenity

It might be impractical
To seek out a new romance
We won't know the actual
If we never take the chance
I'd love to collapse with you
And ease you against this song
I think we're compatible
I see that you think I'm wrong
It took less than 24 hours for TV on the Radio's latest single 'Will Do' sweep the blogosphere, but that is expected when artist of such regard and brilliance hasn't released anything in two years. I was immediately engrossed the instant light-airy, xylophone and revered drums. passed through my headphones. Soon enough Kyp Malone's soulful voice kicks in which  is an amazing compliment to Will Do's poppy, yet eloquent lyrics. Describing a situation that near anyone can relate - unrequited love. TV on the Radio has taken an unusual minimalist approach with the guitars but the overlaid strings is serene.  The only negative comment I can say is that I must wait until April 14th to hear this album in its entirety.

Chillax Trax : Blackbird Black Bird - Float On ( Modest Mouse Cover )

Bay Area Bliss

Blackbird Blackbird - Float On (Modest Mouse cover)

The Bay Area is frequently synonymous with rainbows, codeine, and earthquakes. However, that is subject to change with the arrival of up and comer chill wave producer Mikey Sanders whose artistic pseudonym is 'Blackbird Blackbird'. He is definitely a contender against Lupe's 'The Show Goes On' for best Modest Mouse - Float on re-edit.  Blackbird Blackbird's heavy use of reverb, panning and trip-hop breaks-beats manifest a blissful soundscape.The only complaint I have with Mikey S' rendition is the longevity of the song is cut all to abrupt.

Funk Friday : WebQueawry - Searching


Nothing gets me weaker in the knees than french-disco-house.  WebQuearwry also known as Martijn Poulus has been recently signed to new record label - Slow Network. His  first single, 'Searching' , is a absolute phenom. Martin has created a song that is reminiscienet of Bang-Alter, Fred Falke, and Alan braxe the way the bass licks, 90s house synth chords and a mid 80s sampled vocal, play off each other. Keep an eye on this kid, he may pave the way for French House 2.0.

Hip-Hop Hump Day : Childish Gambino - Freaks and Geeks

Like a can and a half.....

Most of you will know Childish Gambino as Donald Glover; star of Derrek Comedy,  writer for 30 rock ( basically created the Tracy Morgan character ), and now steals the show weekly on Community.  ( The sketches post credits of Community are always the best parts ).

I have huge respect for someone who can cross media fields with supreme talent like he does. He separates his personal life and implements it into his musical career which can easily be detected with his poignant lyrics, witty rhymes and self produced beats.

Artist of the Month : Star Slinger

In the words of Mr. Ice Cube "Today was a good day", reasoning being, I have found my new addiction. His name is Star Slinger and he is a UK based bedroom producer by the name of Darren Williams.

Darren, manages to mix 90's Hip-Hop beats with old soul, funk, RnB samples that even the most obscure hipster would not be aware of. With the subtle glitch overlays or, a simple disco riff, Star Slinger manages to create tracks with instantaneous inducing head-nodding. He has also been reveled for his amazing remixs that range from Broken Social Scene, to Deerhunter to The Go! Team.

Killer Remix - Love the gun breakdown to gun shots
Broken Social Scene - Texico Bitches (Star Slinger Remix)

Something a little more mellow
Star Slinger - May I Walk With You?

The panning production on this is unbelievable...
Star Slinger - Copulate

Something that would make Berry White blush...If you put this on and don't get laid, I'd grab a jacket because hell froze over.

Beast of the weeK : Lupe Fiasco - Words I Never Said feat. Skylar Grey

Hip-Hop is back.

Lupe Fiasco dropped his second single from Lasers, his up coming album, last night and it does not disappoint. He spits some pretty controversial lines in this track, that range from addressing 9/11 to several references to the lacking Obama administration. Lupe is fantastically complimented by Skylar Grey who sings the chorus in a near haunting way because of its juxtaposition to the underlying instrumental.
