no offense to this version but whatever happened to the madlib remix of “feels like we only go backwards”?
From front to back that album is SOLID. i remember he had a cool visually stimulating teaser trailer for that album as well. (i also remember watching the hell out of it.)
i like the sound of 0:46- it sounds like yes- the heart of the sunrise to me.
I dug American Hustle. I was intrigued by how little the trailers gave away yet somehow was the movie I most anticipated watching during 2013. Also concur with your opinion that the ensemble (including the side characters that didn’t get as much screen time) was at the top of their game, including Bradley Cooper who usually rubs me the wrong way for some reason. David O Russell has been crushing it for awhile and I’m stoked to see what he pulls out of his hat for his next film.
And that cocaine out of a hooker’s ass analogy, that a reference to Wolf of Wall Street, bro? I likey your styley.
I don’t disagree, but the only contemporary anti-drug ad’s that stick in the mind are the super-dark meth ad’s. Let’s come up with 2014 version of Scruff McGruff. Love that guy.
Love the Black Lips, Arabia Mountain was pretty awesome and 2011 was so long ago…
i dunno.. musicians have been and will be writing songs about drug use for some time now. stereogum’s article is just pointing out the trendiness of the drug in pop music this year, and outlining that the drug has both a light and dark side to it.
what do you want the writer’s to do, put a D.A.R.E. ad at the end of the article?
Madlib circa Beat Conducta Vol. 3-4. That’s what came to mind when I first listened to the Matangi for KENZO mixtape and was really stoked on the idea. That said, I’m personally am not too thrown that some of those sounds didn’t make the album. I’ve been listening to this the last couple of days and it’s solid throughout.
Big fan of Bitter Rivals. Initially wasn’t into it but it’s grown on me.
finally! the common burn/lay myself down ep came out how long ago? i was getting worried..
Got it now and shits hot!
Fools gold tells me there are no downloads available at this time. the what?!
video is no “bad girls,” but thass alright cause this song is awesome.
hasitleaked.com is overloaded because the leak. its like some MBV type shit! i’m downloading right now and am at the edge of my seat…
Love all of his stuff. also love that he seems like a genuine great dude.
You’re so good Liars, I love you. also in Liars related news: they rereleased drums not dead on vinyl (so stoked!)
Daft Punk slow jams record. its definitely not what i was hoping for (which was party music) but maybe i’ll warm up to it while listening to it in the right context (like lounging/chilling in the sun.)
shit is HOT. hopefully they collab a couple songs together. also in a perfect world clams remixing madlib or vice versa would be too much for me to handle..
andre 3000 what are you doing? you used to be so rad..
My first experience of deerhunter was when a buddy of mine let me borrow a copy of cyptograms and i was not a fan. at all. then microcastle/weird era came out and the nothing ever happens song hooked me, and i pretty much listened to microcastle exclusively. slowly afterwards i wanted more and weird era eventually wore me down and later i revisited cryptomgrams and was all right on!
Reminds me of the episode of seinfeld when george leaves behind his sable hat at his lady friends apartment:
“You know they way I work, Im like a commercial jingle. First its a little irritating, then you hear it a few times, you hum it in the shower, by the third date its By Mennen!”
Sweeet. both quasimoto joints have been my summertime jams for the past couple years. stoked to hear more.
Concur. I dunno why she’s so slept on… Metropolis: The Chase Suite is also pretty fantastic.
“they’ll be like ooooooh let them eat cake but we eat waangs and throw them bones on the ground”
jesus christ, this song has so many good lines!! also kinda surprised a badu/monae collab took this long to happen..
RIP. condolences to his family.
You always do what pitchfork tells you to?
come to the northwest yyy’s. im begging you.
