Childish Gambino – “Eat Your Vegetables”

No Comments 04 April 2012

’s tour might be on hold due to a fractured foot but “Eat Your Vegetables” says he’s still hard at work.  Dropping anti-similes* than an entire Lil Wayne album, Glover takes a stab at hip-hop’s current wave of monotone, stoned out style and pulls it off with a tad more wit.  I am a professed fan of   but I have to admit I probably wouldn’t have posted this song if it weren’t for the Donkey Kong Country water level sampling.

Gorillaz + James Murphy + Andre 3000

No Comments 01 March 2012

Let’s be honest first off, Converse has done the “3 artists, 1 song” collaboration several times, and every time the outcome is forgettable at best, if not just bad.  I guess it’s time to forgive them because after all the missteps they managed to wrangle three of the coolest artists in the music biz into one studio.  Seriously, there might not be a more cool–and credible–combo than this.  Not only is the song good, but you can you can actually hear the individual inputs on “Do Ya Thing” .  The music sounds exactly equal parts and , while the quirky chorus must be directly ripped from a Love Below outtake–that is until Mr. 3000 decides to absolutely unleash on the track leaving everyone with the insatiable desire for new .  If you haven’t heard it yet, give it a go.

Drake – “Club Paradise”

No Comments 12 September 2011

gave away this pensive track over the weekend on his October’s Very Own site.  Lyrically the song is well traversed territory for the Toronto rapper.  ”Club Paradise” finds Drake contemplating relationships with women, dealing with fame, trust issues, and repping his hometown.  Somehow Drake and producer 40 can keep the same formula and still sound fresh.

No Comments 26 July 2011

The latest installment of The Adult Swim Singles Program is a new track from hazed out producer .  On “Wizard” Volpe sticks to his guns with blown out bass and fuzzed up hand claps, but in lieu of a distorted sample to provide the melody he shows his own keyboard prowess with an array of layered synths.  Listen below and download HERE.
