Frank Ocean – Songs For Women

I’d been putting off listening to Odd Future’s R&B singer Frank Ocean’s album for a little while now.  I’ve never really been able to get into any R&B music other than Stevie Wonder but I thought I might as well give Nostalgia, Ultra a try because it seems like Odd Future can do no wrong.  Although there were some songs …

Video: Wavves – King of the Beach

Here’s the video for the title track off of Wavves’ recent album King of the Beach.  The video features Nathan Williams and his band mates getting icey.  He even has a copy of The Kramer in his house.  Other than there’s some video games, weed, cats, fake Wavves money, and actual waves.  Nathan Williams is becoming a superb purveyor of …

Raekwon – Rich & Black (Feat. Nas)

The chef and Nas have reunited for this track off of Raekwon’s upcoming album Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang.  The two (wisely) decide to stay with the boom-bap story rap that they both came up on, and as always it works well.  Raekwon is planning on releasing two albums this year, Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, an album with conventional Raekwon tracks like this, …

Kanye West & Mos Def Freestyle

Right now its past midnight, and I have to get up early for school tomorrow, but this is one of the coolest things I’ve heard in a while.  Kanye is now an Odd Future fan and I think Tyler has inspired some not-give-a-fuck-ness in him.  This freestyle isn’t wildly inappropriate or anything like that, but it is incredibly honest, and …

Modest Mouse- Trailer Trash

I have recently been getting into Modest Mouse’s ’97 release The Lonesome Crowded West and almost everything about it has amazed me so far.  I have always considered The Moon & Antarctica one of my favorite albums of all time and Crowded West is filled with all the same things that made me fall in love with the band in …

Download: Fashawn- Higher Learning 2

I really don’t know much about Fashawn but I love the Bart Simpson rip-off on the cover of his latest mixtape Higher Learning.  Fashawn most recent album Boy Meets World garnered plenty of praise and I know Terry was a big fan so I am sure that Higher Learning is a mixtape that is worth the time.  I haven’t listened …

Bert Wootton In Cosmic Vomit

I love skateboarding.  I don’t care if everyone thinks this is a music blog, I want it to be a blog of all good things.  I first heard of Tyler, The Creator through skateboarding, my favorite way to sink my teeth into a new album is by listening to it on my iPod while I skate back and forth in …
