Music to Check Outon 2013/02/23 at 3:42 am
Back again to share a couple of tracks that you should check out. Nothing too serious, but everyone wants to have some good music that’s not hammered to death on public radio to listen to now and again.
First up is Black Mountain’s “Wucan”
This reminds me a little bit of Kasabian’s first album, when “Club Foot” was all the rage. Five years past, and “wucan” still gets regular play-time on my ipod. It’s catchy and rhythmic and worth a listen.
“Go You’re Own Way” by Lissie
Lissie covers a lot of good songs, but she also makes pretty great covers, so I guess it’s okay. This isn’t her covering Kid Cudi, and it’s a much safer choice for her, but it’s great music for your morning commute to work.
“Chum” by Earl Sweatshirt
I always have had a soft spot from rap music that uses a piano loop, and Earl Sweatshirt does take advantage of my weakness with “Chum”. Indy rap that is lo-fi and smooth as all hell should be everywhere, but for now I’ll take it as it comes.
“BBQ Sauce” by Sean Price
Sometimes, that new sound is picked up everywhere. In this case, it doesn’t quite hit the mark, but the video is interesting enough to at least merit a single watching. I feel that the concept of this track is sound, but the production just fell flat.
“My Name Is Mud” by Primus
Okay, this isn’t new music. Hell, it’s already 20 years old. Yeah, 1993. Fuck.
But I was listening to this track tonight and damn if Primus doesn’t still kill it.
