All Songs Considered

My man T Slats knows how to pick a tune. He recently got me onto this podcast by the American National Public Radio called 'All Songs Considered' and let me tell you that it's dope as fuck. Last week they had a chat with Pete Tong and Gilles Peterson from BBC1 about US and UK music. The presenter seemed a little surprised when Pete Tong said that the reason why the club scene took a while to take off in the US is because at the start it was mainly fuelled by drugs and gays. Not sure whether I agree with that, plus I find it a little pretentious when people use the phrase 'club scene'. It's just a euphemism for getting fucked up scene. You'd sound like such a tool if you went around saying that you were involved in the 'pub scene'. Anyway, this podcast is swag. Highlights include the Dirty South remix of Diddy's 'Coming Home' that they play at the end.       DD

Golfwang

Possibly the most blogged about shit going around at the moment, this is by far the best video I have seen of them.  Tyler speaks on the important shit like Rebecca Black, white chicks, and the Rhianna/Beyonce conundrum (you just know he wants to say Beyonce).  Shows all around Aus this week should be swag as fuck, lets just hope the sound quality is a bit better than in this vid.

Avalanche

File this under: holy fucking shit! According to Pedestrian who quote the boss of Modular, the new Avalanches album is finished and a single is going to be released by the end of the year. Check the full article out here. Guess it probably should be taken with a nugget sized grain of salt. Plus I hate to say it but I think it's going to be crap purely for the reason that we've been waiting too long and it can't possibly live up to expectations. Like when Disco Matt lost his virginity on his 26th birthday - he said it wasn't even that good. Sorry Disco, cheap shot. Either way, in case you've forgotten how bomb they are below is a clip of Dexter absolutely tearing a hole in some shit during the 2000 DMC final. He came second which makes no sense. Step the fuck back and watch a boss at work!

the weeknd

This dude is amazingly amazing.  Listening to this track makes me want to spend all my money on cocaine and, well, listen to this track.  If he released a song a day lets just say I would have a sweet fuckin' habit.  A fo' realz front runner for track of the year.

Intelligent Trunk Music

New music from Stalley, the Bruce Springsteen of rap.  This album is ballin'.  Such catchy little samples and vocal hooks by some dude called Rashad on the production makes it a solid listen all round.  Whats more, you can get it for free on the DL here.

Rolling In The Deep

Just a little bit gay for Childish Gambino right now and in particular just a little bit gay for this verse that he drops during the Adele-Rolling In The Deep remix and EVEN GAYER for the video above where he drops it live. The full song is below.    DD

The Boss

I get the feeling that Beyonce comes out with new shit not because she likes making music but so she can show the world who the fuck the boss is. This is smangin. Highlights include the sideways titty dance at 4:20 and the SWAT team dance off at 2:47. DD
