Music of the Moment - January 31, 2009

Aight, I'll admit it...this one is kind of different. But at the same time, I can't stop playing it. I'm pretty new to Animal Collective, but you probably are too. They're an indie group from Baltimore and they have one of the most unique sounds I've heard in a long time. I'm kind of loafing getting around to post this at the end of last year but I just forgot about it at the last minute. They dropped Merriweather Post Pavilion earlier this year and I heard some good and some bad. Anyways, I still haven't really sat down and listened to the entire cd but I will soon. In the meantime, check out my favorite joint that I've heard so far, Guys Eyes. Ow.

[Double] Music of the Moment - January 30, 2009

Clipse have been one of my favorite hip hop duos for a long time now. All the way back to the Funeral days. Back in December, Clipse dropped the Road to Till the Casket Drops Mixtape to promote for their Play Cloths clothing line and their upcoming album, Till the Casket Drops. The new joint is gonna be fucking ill with beats from the Neptunes, wylin-as-of-late Yeezy and Swizz Beatz. I can't believe it was way back in 06 when Hell Hath No Fury dropped. Damn. But check out two of my favorite joints from the mixtape over Pop Champagne and Dumb It Down. Yurp.

Wtf Kanye...?? Pt. 2

So less than a week since I posted this about Kanye for a huge mohawk/fro/mullet infraction, he's done something else. This time it might actually be worse. A picture has surfaced with Kanye and some of his "friends" in what might be seen as fucking questionable clothing. I think that I have some grasp of fashion, but this is EXTREME. I don't really know what's getting into Kanye as of late, but I hope I don't have to excommunicate him like I'm about to do Lil Wayne. [Note: Wayne's about two weeks away from a tongue ring. Nasty.] Anyway, I hope Kanye stops wylin in time to release Good Ass Job before graduation.

Just like last time, when I saw this I said:

Wtf Kanye...??

Music of the Moment - January 27, 2009

Back from a short started off pretty rough so I'm just getting my daily routine in line. With that being said, don't you fucking love Interpol?? If you don't know who I'm talking about, get familiar. They're one of my favorite groups and I've been listening to them a lot more lately, especially since I re-bought their second album, Antics. It's definitely not new, but I can't stop playing it right now. The New York based band has one of the most distinctive and recognizable sounds in music, (If you subtract She Wants Revenge and Joy Division) and they've quickly become one of my favorites. If I had to pick my favorite song from the album, it would have to be Narc, but I'm just gonna post all of my favorite Interpol songs. Ow.


Rest My Chemistry

Slow Hands

Until next time, I'm out like Plaxico.
Speaking of Plaxico...
Making fun of Plaxico never gets old...

Music of the Moment - January 23, 2009

The Mash-Up that I posted for yesterday MotM got me in the mood for more mashes and remixes so when I heard a remix from one of my favorite bands, Kings of Leon, I had to post it. It's a remix of Knocked Up from Lykke Li, a Swedish singer with a lot of covers under her belt. Her debut dropped last February and she's been featured on numerous albums and songs since then. She's also on the new N.A.S.A. single Gifted with Kanye West and Santogold. She's definitely making good music and I wish I would have found out about her earlier. Owww.

Wtf Kanye...??

So my roommate told me about Kanye's mohawk/fro/mullet concoction that he's sporting nowadays and I had to check it for myself. Now I usually agree blindly with all things Kanye/Jay/Kobe/Lebron, but this one was too much. Come on Kanye...

I am not feeling this hair and it's damn near impossible to defend him on this one. As soon as I saw it I did this:

Wtf Kanye...??

Music of the Moment - January 22, 2009 [Mash-Up]

So I still haven't seen Notorious but I've heard pretty good things about it. With the resurgence of B.I.G.'s music and just talk about Bad Boy period, I've come across a lot of re-released music and even a lot of remixes and mash-ups of Big's music. One of my favorites has to be the remix of the CLASSIC "Party & Bullshit." It's a mash-up between and Peter, Bjorn and John's new single, Nothing to Worry About. It might sound like it's about to be a little bit goofy, and it is, but the joint's pretty tough. And it actually fits. Check it out.

A Change Has Come.... Inauguration 09.

Finally, the day is here. Today, January 20, 2009, at 12 noon, Barack Hussein Obama will be become the 44th President of the United States. This is truly a historic and humbling event and it really should be treated as such. Obama being named president shows that anything is possible with hard work and determination. Honestly, I could go on for days telling you about the effect that Barack Obama has had on my life and the lives of those around me, but I'm sure you spent most of MLK Memorial Day hearing a number of people do just that. I plan on spending most the day celebrating the moment with friends and you should do the same.

It's not everyday that we get a Black President. Ow.
