for every man there's a woman

saigon - war (remix ft nas)

slinky boom bap beat with some fine horns and a low key bass and piano sprinkles. tiiiight.

sloan - all used up

power pop that just rips and shreds. usually the power pop kids will be dorks, but these dorks be wailing on guitar like ninjas.

jamie lidell - newme

blue eyed soul coming out of left field from this warp artist who formerly was diggin up mad elaborate electronic musical stylings.

sunlight in a jar

alan braxe and fred falke - most wanted

wee electronic dittie sounded a little cold and too mechanical and robotic at first but then its ongoing luminescence told me to pay attention. french disco house whatever you want to call it, nice little change up.

super furry animals - sidewalk serfer girl

so i recently obtained the new super furry animals and have yet to fully digest it. i'm thinking this song, off of rings around the world, with its crazy stop start rock and electronic dynamics will set the bar high as i'm paying attention to the new joints.

let's pretend we're in antarctica/ it's good to be back

fountains of wayne - the girl i cant forget

im trying to get back in the game, but for now i'm on soulseek and downloads poppin off. this is one of fountains of wayne's bsides, and it's no sink to the bottom but its still golden. super power pop for the summer heat stroke days.

juelz santana - what the games been missing

understand this a movement going on. for serious a classic smooth laid back play with delirious dipset rhymes and braggadocio. can these guys kick it? yes they can.
