“Or if today is all I have to live…”

Someone will be digging for tunes online 40 years from now, find this, and be soooo happy. Such a special record; warm, and built on the shoulders of giants.

I don’t know what the weather will be 2:13 – 2:58

0169 – Sam Smith – Like I can @ 1:37

“I never love you like I can”

The chorus hits 3 times in a song that is only 2:47. I’m choosing the middle as the best part so that you recognize how great the chorus is after the first time, and still get another hit before the song is over. So bueno.

Like I Can 1:33 – 1:52

From The Lonely Hour, released through Capitol Records, 2014

0168 – Lil Silva feat. Banks – Right For You @ 1:12

0163 Burial – Come Down To Us @ 8:40

Monday, February 24th, 2014

I started this blog 5 years ago with a Burial post, so it’s fitting that on the 5 year anniversary, I go back to Burial. And again, I’ll keep it simple, this is the 163rd one.

Come Down To Us 8:12 – 9:19 (0:25 mark)

From Rival Dealer, released through HyperDub, 2013

0158 South London Ordnance – Black Acre @ 3:12

While the UK beatheads keep pushing the sound further, it’s great to see vocalists jumping on board. Drake’s on it… listen to his new album.
