|Fresh 2012 Beats|
Some tracks I've been enjoying that came out this year. Listen up boys
and girls if you haven't already
While "Swimming Pools" and "The Recipe" have garnered every bit of the attention
they deserve, this deep bit of music rings true. Kendrick's on his game throughout
and the refrain is so very catchy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q5pCozOy5g
My Hatin Joint
Music that just makes you wanna smile. Head bobs up and down and taking it all in
"It was all a dream, I swear it never happened" -- Ab-Soul, the only Black Hippy
member not from the ghetto brings sophistication to the plate, and he's so on with
this track and throughout 'Control System'. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Money Trees (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)
ya bish? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMR45VOKj58
nonsense with perfect flow that makes schoolboy feel even more comprehensible.
if i had my doubts in the man's continuing career as a solo artist, they were
quabbled immediately after hearing his ep, this being the track that i connect with
Soothing as ever, this relaxing little electronic number is in line with Bonobo and
other pure chillout that's around http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnQpYijJjf4
Be a Body
While rightful attention has been given to the fantastic tracks Genesis and Oblivion,
this number here shows off Boucher in a more relaxed state. The oft heralded
artist really came into her own this year with Shrines, one of the years' best
40 Mark Strasse
Whoever James Mercer puts around himself, he's capable of incredible things. While
most of the album was unable to match early precedents he set, this one is one of
the Shins' best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kFH5A9J1uA
comeon le-le-le-le-le-le-le GO! came at just the right time, this bit of ridiculous
noise always cheers me up beautifully http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Mezzmerizing (get it?) voice. Had me fascinated the moment I heard her. Grabs
hold of the highest of emotions, brings down the most outlandish of daydreams, and
is just so beautiful through and through http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Hands on the Wheel (Feat. Schoolboy Q)
"Am I over-faded hell yea it's true" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGd9DTTrX4U
