Found this song via Spotify’s “Indie Work Playlist”. First song on the playlist, and also the only song I actually liked after hearing the first 6 or 7 songs.
It’s got female vox which I prefer over male singers. It’s got a groovy chorus which makes me wanna dance in the terrible way that I do. And, from the sparse lyrics I can pick out, it sounds like it’s a breakup song which is whatever, haha.
We don’t need to hesitate
But I’m already sinking into you…
Wow, I want more of this.
Here’s their only other song (sans remix) available from their Soundcloud:
THIS. SONG. IS. STUCK. IN. MY. HEAD.
And I don’t, and I don’t, and I don’t, and I don’t…
Carlos Santana’s upcoming album is sounding like it could make a run for some more gramophone trophies!
I wonder if there will come a time when I listen to music created by someone much younger than me and I start to think “I’m too old for this.” Just like folks in those Elders React videos. Twenty years from now, could I still go ignant to Odd Future??
Anywaaaaays, recently discovered this 17-year old Atlanta native by the name of Raury. His sound certainly ain’t like the trap music synonymous with Atlanta.
While I dig the production of the God’s Whisper, here’s another track that’s more mellow and sweet. Tell me what you think.

Well, there goes 90 minutes of life gone…
Their catalog is quite extensive so there no doubt will be songs left out. There’s no Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik or Player’s Ball. It’d be tight if they got Killer Mike, Cee-Lo and the rest of Goodie Mob for some songs. I also noticed the setlist has a lot of Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. I understand that album is their most mainstream but ehhh…
Odds are slim but I really, really hope to I have the opportunity to see them perform live this year!
Amerigo Gazaway’s *Soul Mates* series continues the theme of his previous work in creating collaborations that never were. On the series’ latest installment, Amerigo unites Brooklyn rapper Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) and soul legend Marvin Gaye for a dream collaboration aptly titled “Yasiin Gaye”. Building the album’s foundation from deconstructed samples of Gaye’s Motown classics, Gazaway re-purposes the instrumentation into new productions within a similar framework. Carefully weaving Bey’s tangled raps and Gaye’s soulful vocals over his new arrangements, the producer delivers a quality much closer to an authentic collaboration than a lukewarm “mashup” album.
Mos Def, er….Yasiin Bey vs. Marvin Gaye mashup!
