May 2017

Netherfriends - Uptown Boys

Meat MD: This dude deserves a shout. V prolific and incredible knack for song and album titles. In 2016 he made 13 full albums with titles like 808s and Harpbreak, one called Swish where every single song is just the name of a basketball player, Don't be a Fuck Boy, and my personal favorite Nocomputer with track titles like "My computer was stolen in Atlanta" "All of nocomputer was recorded live using loop pedals" and "Buy nocomputer so I can replace my stolen computer".

The Lagoons - California

Devo: Add to memorial day playlists immediately.

HAIM - Want You Back

Pooh: Retro banger.

Adrien Brody: Rob Lowe in St Elmo's Fire is such a fucking stud. That weird yellow Batman tank he rocks playing the sax would cost A$AP Rocky $2k today.

Astronaut - No Place For Lovers

Meat MD: They remind me of Big Black Delta, who I love. (ignore the video, which obviously sucks).

Allman Brothers Band - Whipping Post (9/23/1970 Fillmore East)

Mobile Mike: There are a few Fillmore albums, all within a few years of each other, that fall into most top ten lists. Hendrix, Santana, Derek and the Dominoes -- and of course the Allmans. Untouchable.

Greggs brother, Duane, is still widely considered the greatest slide guitar player of all time. He used an empty pill bottle, showed the world what it sounded like with Statesboro Blues, and co wrote songs like Layla with Eric Clapton.

Tonight we drink to Gregg and the Allman Bros. RIP.

April 2017

Jacob Banks - Part Time Love

Schmoo:  Been fiending since Kendrick dropped that un-takeable, seminal American blues scripture a couple weeks ago.  Stumbled across Jacob Banks today.

The Palms - Push Off

h/t Mike Tyson

Gorillaz - Let Me Out

Meat MD:  Best since demon days.  Not everyone seems to like it, but everyone's entitled to go fuck themselves.

All The Small Things - Postmodern Jukebox ft. Puddles Pity Party

Tatarsky:  Really feeling these covers, and PPP in general.  Can we get this guy at a wedding please?

March 2017

Run The Jewels - Legend Has It

Joshua:  Yet another dope RTJ video.

Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still

Meat MD: P.TM must have an album on the way. Two fireball tracks already out.

Electric Guest - Oh Devil

Benny: Are people discreetly jamming out to this album without telling me?

Jay Som - Baybee

Whiskey:  Nice, bright guitar-synth shit -- if you enjoy Real Estate or Chairlift, this should hit the spot.  Also for examples of 2017's hot new genre "offspring of Kim Jung Un jamming in a gondola", this is pretty good.
