Check this mixtape out, straight from The Hood, Maryland. Props to my boy Ousmane and PWest, and, though I dont know him, Fredd Suede whose ripping it on The Pharmacy. This tape is filled with the back to the 90s rap that I dig. None of this new style poppy rap that im already sick of. Much raw style and grace on this tape. Pure Poetry.
As a black keys fan since the fifth grade... yes im cooler then yall cause ive been listening to them since the fifth grade (i wanna make that clear)... I am so happy to be one of the first sources to bring you their new single which was released just last night. As always the black keys give us a beautiful slice of the blues which has infiltrated even the jo-bros fans out there. Regardless of their new found mainstreamness I can do nothing at all to repress how good this duo is. Check it out:
This right here is a t-t-t-TASTY track right hear. Catchy as hell!!! Listen to it and you will NOT be disappointed.

This track is awesome. Produced by Mattyboh Ft. Samantha Gracie (im guessing the singer?) the chorus is quite obviously extremely catchy and would absolutely blow up any rave. Props to this up and comer!
P.S. thank you augie morris for showing me this (happy?)
I only smoke weed when I need to and I need to get some rest, yo wheres my sess, I confess I burned the hole in your mattress yes yes, it was me I plead guilty and at the count of 3 I pull back my duve and make my way to the refrigerator, one dry potato inside no lie not even bread, jam, when the light above my head went bam, I cant sleep!
So once again my boy Jamie shows me some very enjoyable Indie. This is Metronomy, straight from the UK. The song is great and the video is truly an essential part of the production. Highlights include: half babe, half popsicle; model licking the floor; and eraser head SLAPPIN' DA BASS. enjoy,
How do you feel about mostly spoken songs. Personally I love them. Everyone is free (to wear sunscreen) by Baz Luhrman, Popular by Nada Surf, Fitter Happier by Radiohead, and this gem that I found yesterday. Henry Rollins, the lead singer, is a underground legend for being the lead singer of the hardcore punk band Black Flag. Check it out:
One of the reasons i love these types of songs is cause they are always made to say something that you should listen up to. This message is pretty self-explanatory.
This Website is awesome!!! The idea is that you login with your Facebook account and join different chat rooms... In the chat rooms you become a DJ and, along with 4 other DJs, you each take turns playing songs. Check it out at www.turntable.fm
Up to 65 views in a few hours hell yea! then again at least 45 of those are my own. Anyway keep coming back ima leave you all with this very nice track my friend jamie showed me. This dude is the ISLANDIC version of Bon Iver. Pretty good:
Today is the debut of this blog so I'm just stuck on it posting new links and what not. I kinda like this though I only have like 10 views so far. But everyone whose seen this probably thinks I'm a dub step fanatic and though I do love it, my true roots lay in some guitar riffs and beautiful vocals. This ones out to Jack:
I remember the first time I ever truly listened to dub step. It sounded like straight poop music to my virgin ears(see vid clip)
One day my cousin asked me if I wanted to go to something called "Starscape" with him. I'm a concert fiend so I agreed and forked over $65. That night was a fucking revelation for me and ever since I've been addicted to beautiful WOMPING noises. That fat bass makes me WOMP in the middle of work, it makes me WOMP on the metro, it makes me WOMP while I'm WOMPING... if you know what I mean....
Back to the point: I went to "Starscape" and experienced some weird androgynous dude name Skrillex: hero. Heres a great video of the dub step celebrities life:
Everyone here has probably heard this but i thought i should make sure you've truly thought about living a WOMPPY lifestyle.
