Recent Listenings I

1Charizma and Peanut Butter Wolf
Big Shots

Big Shots is a posthumous release of tracks recorded between 1991 and 1993, prior to Charizma's murder during a mugging. The sound here is great, full of extremely solid boom-bap beats, fitting samples, and Charizma's underappreciated mic skills. There isn't a single weak track on here. Recommended for fans of MF Grimm.
2Boogie Down Productions
By All Means Necessary

This is definitely an improvement over Criminal Minded, which seemed to be a cluster of wack rhymes and horribly dated beats. Although they still sample a horrible rock song ("Smoke on the Water" instead of "Back in Black"), KRS' flow and chilled-out style make for an enjoyable listening experience.
3Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid

That one Four Tet dude and a jazz drummer who has worked with Ornette Coleman, Miles Davis, and Sun Ra. If this isn't reason enough to listen to this, then you're pretty lame.
4Songs of Green Pheasant
Gyllying Street

I decided to listen to this album because of the cover. This guy creates a well-balanced mix of electronic music and post-rockish indie. Very relaxing and gentle album that is best when placed in the background.

Although this isn't as good as I was expecting it to be, Andorra is wonderful and melodious headphones album. This will probably be compared to Panda Bear's Person Pitch ad nauseum.
