The songs I've scrobbled most in the past 3 months. If you haven't heard
any of these gems, I highly recommend them
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8Jdrq57BoM -- dedicated to Liberi Fatali
(cause of the logo man). No but seriously, tihs one's awesome
Made You Look
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gWD4g63RNI -- he lost a lot of consistency
after Illmatic, but so many of his tracks have been and will continue to be in your
face excellent. This as much as any other
|13||NY State of Mind|
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKjj4hk0pV4 -- still probably my favorite hip-
hop track ever.
|12||Burial, Four Tet and Thom Yorke|
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91tcYBQBzL4 -- While most people would prefer
Burial to work alone (and Kindred was certainly an amazing LP), I'd be stoked to
hear him collaborate more. This track, as well as Moth, are 2 of the best things
Bevan has ever done imo.
Perseverance (Beatless Repress)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmzWrnZa8Ks -- even though it lacks the
absolutely gorgeous simplicity of the beatless repress, any version of this song is
incredible. James Zabiela is a force to be reckoned with.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sk9XYQMRiLY -- Using that same guitar tone
from 'You Wish' and transforming it into something new and different and gorgeous.
Pretty Lights are some of the best in the business right now.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFchcJtqduo -- melt away. A lot of music
seems to be heading in a direction similar to this, and I'm quite ok with that.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMCK-kZqw4k - Black Hippy / TDE has clearly
sucked me in all the way. As much as Q isn't someone I would normally listen to, I
find myself putting his stuff on all the time.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4Zr9c7-b00 -- 'Got a high tolerance when
your age don't exist' . When he's on, he flows better than any rapper under the
age of 30. While he's still working out how to be a showman while performing live,
he's already got at least one classic track to his name.
|6||Nightmares on Wax|
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8MLqYNGKdI -- Don't let the name confuse
you, the simple guitar in the background and electric piano buzzing forward blend in
|5||A Tribe Called Quest|
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdZx65JDNMI -- 'relax yourself girl, please
settle down' . Been binging on Tribe lately, and while I prefer The Low End Theory
to Midnight Marauders, this is the most easy to listen to and smooth thing they've
ever put down
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-Vuop_F_hk -- perhaps the best single track
polymath ever showed me. This is very eerie, incredibly smooth and keeps me on
edge the entire track. Highly recommended
Hands on The Wheel Ft. A$AP Rocky
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyAbhDBaGh4 -- totally juvenile but oh so
catchy. Sup chambered?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLHtV_S2HZw -- the mellow closer to the
incredibly disturbing Come to Daddy EP, RDJ's brilliant as ever, and it's nice that
he's mellow here.
Why Didn't You Save Me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGwmNtiXd1Q -- gives me the chills like no song
I've ever heard before. I knew when lucidity and silentpotato both gave this a
strong endorsement I had to check it out (plus nico jaar is a baller), but this is just
