Hoodie Allen: Pep Rally Mixtape

If you’ve been to Hype Machine at all over the past few days, you’ve certainly seen Hoodie Allen‘s clever idea to place an ad on the site that perhaps raised his profile in 2010. After finding success on the internetz with slick indie-sampling tracks with skillfully narrated hip-hop edge like “Words of Wisdom” and “You Are Not A Robot” comes the mixtape, Pep Rally. The eleven song set features more fun than most of the mixtapes I’ve heard all year. Samples come from the likes of The Black Keys, Beach House, Death Cab For Cutie and Marina & the Diamonds and Two Door Cinema Club on the aforementioned cuts. My current favorite is “Look At What We Started” with Hoodie’s versatile flow over a sped-up Alex Winston track I can already tell I’m gonna love. There is even a comical ode to Mad Men starlet, January Jones. If nothing else, its nice to see someone else enjoys hip-hop and indie music like I do.
