Raphael Saadiq “100 Yard Dash”

Two Door Cinema Club.

Great afternoon chill song.

Someone put me on to Two Door Cinema Club a little while back, and I must say– these UK bands make some great music.

PS- specifically the band is from North Ireland (thanks Zack)

Lupe Fiasco, LASERS

If you haven't already, be sure to purchase Lupe Fiasco's LASERS. Lupe, quite simply, is one of the best rap artists alive. Strong statement? Nah, not even a little bit… don't y'all get tired of empty lyrics and repetitious auto-tuned beats from so many rap/hip-hop artist? I know I do. So for us "un-basic" people Lupe feeds our "famished from the lack of real rap" souls. And as usual he mixes intellectual lyrics with rhythmatic alternative beats, and tops it all off with that classic Lupe styley'all know what I mean. I can certainly hear the "slightly more mainstream than raw" sound of the music that many Lupe-heads have talked about, but this is obviously the labels doing… which I'm okay for one album– hopefully it'll open him up to a wider group of fans (which I believe is Atlantic's plan). So, the moral of the story is: purchase LASERS (amazon, itunes) and while your at it go ahead and get Food & Liquor and The Cool if those two albums are somehow not already in your ipod.

For more Lupe, check out his website.

I wanna go ahead and start the "Lupe Fiasco — Best Rap Album" Grammy 2012 campaign. As long as Andre 3000 and Cee-Lo aren't nominated as well, then my vote in that category will always be for Lupe (the) Fiasco.

A Mumford & Sons Morning

 

You know how each morning you'll be in the mood for a different type of music?…well that's how I am anyway. Some mornings I'm in the mood for 80s hits (music like "Don't You Forget About Me", "Danger Zone", and "Purple Rain"), other days Motown Classics, then it might be Theophilus London, etc etc…. well, today it's Mumford & Sons.
