A trip back to MSU, moving to a new apartment and working some late hours not only means I don’t get you new music in a reasonable manner. It also means that my RSS feed is filled to the brim with new tunes. I’m crazy enough to think that any one of those links could lead to my favorite new song of the moment, so its hard for me not to check 95% of them out. Overwhelmed, I was finally able to catch up last week.
There were so many good tracks (and many newcomers) released in the last 2-3 months, I soon realized I wouldn’t be able to release one disc that encompassed everything. Hopefully, this isn’t music overload, but here goes:
JayeL Audio – 11-24-09
Disc One http://www.sendspace.com/file/ou2dup
Kings of Convenience show off their side project, The Whitest Boy Alive, by flipping a sample that Daft Punk made legendary (“1517”). Bon Iver & St Vincent turn out the best song off the New Moon soundtrack. Janelle Monae sounds like she’s been watching an excessive amount of the Bride of Frankenstein. One For The Team came up with one of my favorite song titles of ’09 in “Questions and Panthers”. *Disclaimer: Shakira and Kesha appearances are only due to affiliation with Kid Cudi and Fred Falke making another ridiculous remix of a song that I’m not a fan of.
