Yung Nate’s first track off of his upcoming 11:04 EP appears to signal the emergence of an exciting talent. I can’t find much info on Nate other than he released some free mixtapes earlier in the year. Though if “Work” is any indication, this will certainly not be the last we hear from the Yung man. The only downside of listening to this is you’ll have a sample from a song off the soundtrack of Wicked stuck in your head.
The best thing about listening to music while doing some rote task is that you actually get to give a song a chance without letting the iPod-inspired-ADD part of your brain have any say. I’m glad I listened to all of this track off of Supreme Cut’s new LP Whispers in the Dark, the last minute alone is worth your time.
I know I can’t be the only one that leaves music untouched on their laptops/iPhones for months, only to later discover some slap has just been sitting there instead of being played loudly. TNGHT (Hudson Mohawke & Lunice) is pretty weird, and I’m not even sure how I feel about their EP, but I love the big hip-hop sound this duo produce.
It’s not like music is ever a hard medium for one to enjoy, but some albums and artists, especially the ones you’re already familiar with, tend to make the job a whole lot easier. Yeasayer’s third effort might lack the highs of the first two albums, but is also less uneven, yielding some solid summer jams.
I’m sure it’s a long and vaunted list, but this has to be one of the best Sinead-O’Connor-single-written-by-Prince covers out there. Impatiently waiting on their full release.
I can’t let this song’s hopeful and wide-eyed optimism penetrate my shell of irony and derisiveness. Must…remain…cynical.
I was a little slow on the uptake with Tame Impala’s last album, Innerspeaker, and I’m a couple weeks late with their new single. Breathless and breezy as ever, these guys are becoming my platonic ideal of psychedelic pop music.
