Today was beautiful, and tomorrow’s going to be too. Just roll the windows down and play this shit.

Mikey Rocks – “Bat Phone”

leave a comment »

To be honest, I didn’t have very high hopes for a Sir Michael joint sans Chuck Inglish, but this is some seriously smooth shit. That beat drop at the beginning with “lay down the windows and I’m on one…” is actually really striking. On The Bake Sale, he certainly didn’t do much to change his reputation as the less-talented half of the Cool Kids, but there was certainly a marked improvement on Gone Fishing and some of his Tacklebox verses are definitely rewind-worthy.

We don’t allow blunts in the cut

I don’t understand why this wasn’t on Pilot Talk, but whatever. The beat on this version sounds like a studio interpolation of the sample-based version that dropped a while back. I remember reading that Ski Beatz has had issues clearing a lot of the samples for 24-Hour Karate School, so instead of fighting expensive legal battles he’s just reworked the joints in question with the in-house band at DD172.

It wasn’t on the original tracklist, but according to Ski it’s going to be on the for-sale retail version that’s dropping on September 7th. Jet life.

Pistols & Palm Trees

leave a comment »

I’ve never heard of Skeme, but this has an easy, head-nodding feel to it. Nothing too exciting here, just late summer evening cruise music. Reminds me a bit of CYNE, but this definitely knocks harder. From Skeme’s upcoming project Pistols and Palm Trees, which was supposed to drop in July but apparently didn’t.

Let’s forget, for a second, the pair of G.O.O.D. Music releases that are dropping on the same day, and indulge in the fantasy that Album of the Year might not be hyperbole:

Tronic was soul-melting fire from front to back, and the early leaks from this record have all been hot so, who knows? Add this to the fact that now-Twittering Kanye’s album (no longer titled Good Ass Job) and Big Sean’s debut are supposed to drop on the same day, and Septemer 14 is shaping up to be Christmas come early, Cudi or no Cudi. Of course, this is rap music we’re talking about here, so all of these albums will probably drop midway through 2011, after we’ve endured months of “behind the scenes” promo videos and re-hashed mixtapes with no new songs. Oh well, at least we’ll have Act II by then, right?

The Hood Internet: Trillwave

leave a comment »

Everyone’s favorite mashup duo is back with 25 more tongue-in-cheek blends of bloggable indie bands and southern rappers. Seriously, where do they find all these acapellas? As usual, there are more than a few clunkers (Toro Y Moi and Jay Electronica is a match made in the darkest corner of hell), but there’s something undeniably cool about hearing MF DOOM over the Flaming Lips. Highlights include “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” over Neon Indian’s “Mind Drips” (the only contribution from Juelz Santana: “AYE”), a version of Kanye’s verse on “Barry Bonds” that’s actually listenable, and Drake’s “Over” with the slowed-down, mournful march of Beach House’s “Walk in the Park.” Also, Weezy and Birdman over “Feel it All Around” would be nice if Lushlife hadn’t already murdered it.

Cop the whole tape here.

Best Coast: When I’m with you

leave a comment »

You’re not a real blogger until you’ve done a Best Coast post or seven. I thought about writing a review for Crazy for You, but what’s the point? It’s one of the few records everyone seems to agree on, and it’s really no different from the sound of the steady stream of 7″ singles Bethany Consentino has been putting out for a while. It’s simple, it’s sunny with a tinge of heartbreak, and there’s lots and lots of dreamy reverb–the kind of record that takes you as close as you can get to a sun-soaked California beach in 1964 without actually closing your MacBook and flying back in time to California. No wonder bloggers love it so much.
