Beck - Morning [mp3]

Is it still cool to like Beck? Is it even still cool to be cool? Either way, I like the new Beck album a bunch… and like this song in particular.

If you thought that last track was gold, this is just a bucket of treasure.

Mos Def and Marvin Gaye, done really well.  From Amerigo Gazaway’s “collaborations that never were” mixtape series, which you can download for free here.

Worked an insanely long day yesterday and this hit my dash during it all.  Love when the tumblr elves drop timely gifts like this.

Such a sleeper.  So great.

Disclosure feat. Mary J Blige - F For You [mp3]

Why didn’t anyone tell me that this exists? A re-do of the original track where, not surprisingly, Mary goes off and does her thing.  Makes the song feel bigger in scale. Good stuff.

Eric B. & Rakim - Don’t Sweat the Technique [mp3]

LIFE HACK: listen to this as you sluggishly commute to work in the morning, you’ll immediately feel indestructible.

Main Source - Live at the Barbeque [mp3]

Addendum to previous post: this track (specifically Nas’ verse) is discussed in detail on that podcast.  Since listening to the podcast yesterday, I’ve listened to Live at the Barbeque approximately eleventy billion times. Still flawless after all these years.

Todd Terje - Spiral [mp3, via rar]

Todd Terje yet again putting on a master class on slow burning ten minute electro jams. The opening drum line is pretty euphoric, even feels a bit like a cousin of Far Nearer in a roundabout way.. which is weird because Far Nearer is the ultimate summer jam and we’re boot deep in the dead of winter.

Nada Surf - Blizzard of ‘77 [mp3]

The last 24 hours have been interesting in Calgary.  We’re stuck in the middle of a blizzard, which has crippled the city, caused insane 23 car pile up traffic accidents, shut down the airport, etc.

I’ve tried to not leave the house except to shovel snow… except it’s a blizzard so the snow you’re shoveling is going to blow back with more snow an hour later.  I’ve actually lost count of the number of times I’ve shoveled snow (and learned that snow will stick to your beard while shoveling).  Ironically enough, we did venture out once and our vehicle got stuck in the snow 6 feet from the garage… despite all the snow shoveling.

Anyways, today I’m not leaving the house FOR REALS.  Also, I’m listening to this song on repeat.
