February March 2018

.Paak 2 Basics Episode 1: Layin' it .Paak

Tatarsky:  Got targeted with this drumstick promo campaign featuring our boy.  I knew I was a Paak fan, and I knew I believed in smart ad tech, but gahdamn I’m grateful for both.

Dawes - All Your Favorite Bands

The Prig:  This Dawes guy has a bunch of tracks that are easy to enjoy but hard to really care about.  This track, however, has heart and I feel like I can care about it.

Mura Masa - I'll Be Alright

Joe Con:  Go ahead and add this to your babymakin mix.  Has there ever been a bigger leap in character cool factor than Glover's leap from love interest in Girls to Lando Calrissian?

Rhye - Taste

Devo:  Just in time for V day.

Prince - 2007 SB Halftime Show

Adrien Brody:  Prince's 2007 SB halftime show = best halftime show? NFL Films thinks so. (Sidenote: fuck you, Rex Grossman.)

K-pop:  Heard they're trotting out a Prince hologram this year, which sounds exactly like what he would have wanted:  "That's the most demonic thing imaginable. Everything is as it is, and it should be. If I was meant to jam with Duke Ellington, we would have lived in the same age. That whole virtual reality thing... it really is demonic. And I am not a demon," he said. "Also, what they did with that Beatles song ["Free As a Bird"], manipulating John Lennon's voice to have him singing from across the grave... that'll never happen to me. To prevent that kind of thing from happening is another reason why I want artistic control."

January 2018

The Shacks - Follow Me

Rory:  Pryor’s widow agrees with Q on the Brando claim with this beautiful quote -- It was the '70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you'd f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.

Son Lux - Dream State

Meat MD:  Like if Edward Sharpe & MZs were having a nervous breakdown.


Hollering:  Straight from Estonia.  I don't dislike this as much as I should and the 2:00 mark is noteworthy.  


Malaa - Notorious

Meat MD:  If you're ever in Philly, do yourself a favor, go to Silk City, be 7 years younger, and tear that place up.  DJ DeeJay used to take requests and if I even walked towards his table, he'd just go "I got you", because I requested poison and just a friend every single time.

December 2017

Jain - Makeba

Tatarsky:  Not sure how I didn't hear this till today but listened a dozen times since this morning.  Love a tasty world jam.

Pooh:  South African Lorde.

Martin:  She's French you oaf.

Pooh:  French Lorde.

Lorde - Green Light (Chromeo Remix)

Tatarsky:  Office holiday party this weekend -- what bangers am I missing to whip the tech millennials into a frenzy?  Hoping for a few #metoo stories on Monday

Julien Baker - Appointments

Meat MD:  Yo we doing this or nah? Top 5 songs, albums, artists.   This is my favorite time of year and if we don't do this, I will FUCKING CRY

Devo:  If you do cry, can I recommend Julien Baker's "Appointments" for the soundtrack?

Night Drive - Rise and Fall (Classixx Remix)

JEFF:  Top five - The National, QOTSA, RTJ, Dead Europe ‘72, GZA - Liquid Swords.  Decent year for tunes.

Michelangelo:  Albums...  Beck, LCD, Portugal the Man, Father John, Kamasi Washington.

Joey Con:  "Very nice, Rob. A sly declaration of new classic status slipped into a list of old safe ones. Very PUSSY! Couldn’t you be more obvious than that, Rob? How about uh, I don’t know, The Beatles? How about fucking, fucking Beethoven? Track 1 Side 1 of the Fifth Symphony!"

Foggy Goggles:  Strong year for sure.  Listen to this track, now.

Hovey Benjamin - Send Bobs

Adrien Brody:  Millenial weird Al comes fucking correct.
