you knows i was raised in that prahject

the streets - never went to church

well, i guess im a sucker for slow yams with that peeyano keys, especially coming from mike skinner. im not that big of a fan of the new albulum, but maybe its a grower and i just gotta lean. just diggin anything epic nahimean.

camera obscura - lloyd, i'm ready to be heartbroken

first song of the new co joint, which seems to improve on their last but may be a little top heavy. we'll see though, if youre into some laid back twee-y green fields of scotland styles then ch-ch-check please.

jumpy bass lines and garage rock.

chris farley arcade - the land before time

syncopated beats and some awful/ awfully amazing wordplay on this fourth grade level tip. catchy

gnarls barkley - go go gadget gospel

insanity of gospel, definitive breaks, hand claps, walls of joyousness bubbling under the surface of crash after crash. iunno. good way to start the new album, cee-lo and dangermouse amirite?

energy over time

hot chip - the warning
brooks - roxxy (hot chip remix)

YEA SO IVE BEEN STUDYING. school is the lame the only thing keeping me together is a bottle of scotch. but these are some good electropop indie whatever that just cant seem to leave the top of my playlists wafflecopter.

the antennas - adapt
maritime - tearing up oxygen

slice of indie pop thats not going to change anybodys life, but is real good and refreshing and catchy. g-g-g-gorgeous.

the glow, part 3

the raconteurs - steady as she goes

from the new albulum which joins the forces of brendan benson and the white stripes guy jack white, both from detroit. this lead off track is the most poppy first impression stand out from what i can tell and is understandably so their single i think......... reminds me a little bit of joe jackson cuz of that bassline (is she really going out with him?) but yea, word hott.

we are scientists - cant lose
mystery jets - purple prose
ne-yo - when youre mad

two bands which bring some brit pop maximo park inflected rock goodness, whether or not its too late to break into this trend, im still diggin em. also, ne-yo, no reason. OTHER THAN IT BRINGS THE MOTHAFUCKIN HOTTNESS OGMOWERWP($*%)#$%. dont call me no poptimist i know i know real professional.

everybody meet mr me too

jamie lidell - multiply
jamie lidell - Game For Fools (Mara Carlyle Ukulady Mix)

jamie lidell was one of my favorite acts of last year, and his new multiply additions disc has some real good reworkings of his songs, either with some even more glitched up soul or by totally different approaches to the songs, like this game for fools mix up or a mutliply piano version. i know, i know.

lil wayne - boom bap

on some slow roast.
