MP3 blog 2012/07/26

blog 2012/07/26 - sweet digital suckle

Aaron Freeman - Marvelous Clouds:  Ween is over and done!  You hit an age too old for the drugs and it becomes time to SOFT ROCK, thank god at least one of them took that advice.   An album of Rod McKuen covers?  Sure!  It's not my bag entirely, but I love the title track, and I can't wait for his future works.  (and yes I'm excited about the post-rehab reunion tour!)

Aesop Rock - Crows 1 ft Kimya Dawson
Aesop Rock - Fryerstarter:  Skelethon is blowing shit up left and right.  AGAIN, El-P and Aesop each drop a hot album in the same year, and I think Aesop has the edge this time.  Kimya Dawson on the chorus!  Highly recommended!

Baauer - Harlem Shake:  Just some hardcore bass fucking BOOM.

Dirty Projectors - See What She Seeing:  After a snoozeworthy start, 2012 is finally exploding with all of the albums I oh so wanted.   Swing Lo Magellan IS OUT and it makes me giddy.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Ellie Goulding - High For This:  The Weeknd are getting some big anme cover action going!  I think Goulding is perfect for this.

Feist - Bittersweet Melodies (Christian Strobe Remix):  Remember all of those terrible 1-2-3-4 remixes?  Yeah, thank god we don't.  And this is the chaser that wipes them away for good.  Plodding slow grooves!

Jagga - Love Song (Boy 8 Bit Remix):  Boy 8 Bit hits us with an acid house love song!

Jolie Holland - Pure Imagination (Gene Wilder cover):  Sounding like pre-bitterness Cat Power, I am shocked shocked SHOCKED more people don't cover this fabulous song.    Oh Gene Wilder, we love you.  I must go back and watch the children torture-porn that is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Killer Mike - R.A.P. Music:  Along with EL-P, Killer Mike has been… umm…  killing mics?  Ooooo I see what he did there.  CLEVER!  Fucking love those synths and the snare hit replaced with a skittery echo.  From the hot new album R.A.P. Music.

Kuhrye-oo - Give In (For The Fame):  It's a heavy emotional pop song in the clever disguise of a future garage track!

Metric - Lost Kitten
Metric - Speed The Collapse:  Not much needs to be said, I guess.  It's a new Metric album, Synthetica.  It sounds like the other Metric albums.  It's pretty enjoyable, but probably won't change your life.  Unless your life-change bar is pretty low, in which case hey go right ahead and change away.  But it might be nice to be able so sing along when you inevitably see them in the next year at every single festival.

MrDMBeats - Back From The Dead:  Sometimes I just want some pleasant breakbeats…

Niki & The Dove - Tomorrow:  THE BEST electro pop out there, hands down.

Palms - Lake Marble Falls:  Bon Iver's tendrils infected a lot of folk pop, and I am oh so grateful.

Public Enemy - Get Up Stand Up ft Brother Ali
Public Enemy - Most of My Heroes Still... ft Z-Trip:  PE are BACK!  They overcome the pitfalls of past comebacks:  focus more on the beats, less on the fatherly preaching.  Less of Flava Flav's homophobic rants, more awesome guest spots.  You  should buy Most of My Heroes Still Don't Appear On No Stamp just out fucking respect.
