It’s Monday and we’ve got another six tracks for your aural pleasure. I say we, but it’s more me, as this is my first one. I hope there’s something in here that you like; if there’s not then do no fear, as it’ll be Sam’s turn again next week.
Gorillaz – Superfast JellyFish (feat. De La Soul and Gruff Rhys)
My favourite song off the brilliant new Gorillaz album. I mean, where else would you hear De La Soul and the lead singer of the Superfunny Animals on the same song?
Blackalicious – First In Flight (feat. Gils Scott Heron)
I love the vocals from Gils Scott Heron, it just sets up the whole song. It’s almost perfect.
Homeboy Sandman – The Carpenter
I think I’m in love with this man. Seriously! He has such an impressive flow – fast but clever – and it’s filled with so much information that you’ll still be noticing things on your 12th listen.
D-sisive – Boom Baba Boom
Very laid back tune that perfectly shows off his storytelling skills – funny, too.
Handsome Boy Modelling School – Holy Calamity
You may have figured out that I have a bit of a passion for big, beefy beats.
Elaquent – Cloud 8
This is good, is it not? I just wish I could find a video of Mastered System so I could have ended this with some 8 bit instrumental magic.
