“can’t do without you”

Listen to this and it will all make sense. What a loop.

Ain’t that Peculiar 0:10 – 0:24

From Moods of Marvin Gaye, released through Tamla records, 1966

0159 Drake – Too Much @ 0:47

“most people in my position get complacent, want to come places with star girls”

There are some great moments on the Drake album, the sample on the Jay Z track, the intro to Connect, the chorus on Furthest Thing, and then the way the drums drop here on Too Much. It feels like they’re late. Love the flow too, and hearing Sampha takes me back to that great SBTRKT album. The Jimmy Fallon performance is worth a look too, great stuff from our hometown representative.

Too Much 2:45 – 5:45

From Nothing Was the Same, released through Cash Money Records, 2013

0153 Chilly Gonzales – Kenaston @ 2:19

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

I think I came back to this after I saw he was guesting on the new Daft Punk album. Daft could work with anyone they want, and they chose Chilly for a reason.

And that reason is in this clip, listen up, I gave you a lead in, the best part starts at :10.

Kenaston 2:09 – 2:29

From Solo Piano II, released through Gentle Threat Records, 2012

best part of over my dead body

“over my dead body”

The first time I heard this it was on some terrible speakers, and I didn’t quite hear it right. My friend was also making fun of Drake’s sing songy rap style. But damn, hearing it on headphones, yes, this is why I have this blog. To post these special moments of musical bliss. Those lil drums in the background, the way she says ‘baby’, shit man.

Shout out to Drake for the Take Care billboard too, so slick.

0106 Deadmau5 – Raise your Weapon @ 5:03

“burn, burn, burn…”

I wonder what the UK boys think of this one, it’s kinda hidden at the 4:45 mark but still.

That extra little step in front of the drop makes it unique. Heavy drums and a soulful vocal, nice combo Mr. D.

“the modern kids”

I can’t stop listening to this album. I finally settled on this track to write a best parter on because it has great strings AND a big guitar solo.

Really, this album is a masterpiece.

I could take them or leave ’em before this.

Look at the album cover and then listen to the album. They’re the same.

I think back to the Danforth Music Hall show earlier this summer and realize it was a privilege to have heard these songs then. I didn’t think they’d be this good. They played Modern Man for their encore; that’s confidence.

This record puts them up there with Radiohead. It dwarfs what came before it, I haven’t listened to MIA, LCD or Lotus in ages… even Madlib!

“whatever puts me all the way up”

A quickie on a beautiful Sunday.  Always liked this one from local boy Matt Good. The best part is right at the end.
