I worked my retail job on a Saturday for the first time this weekend, and it was nothing short of awful. People so crazy with this consumerism shit, man. This woman asked me if we had a pair of very popular shoes in a very popular size and asked me “why?!” (in a very rude tone) when we didn’t. Well here I am to tell you WHEN YOU WANT THE MOST FUCKING POPULAR SHOE IN THE MOST POPULAR SIZE, YOU BETTER BE EARLY TO THE GAME FOR THAT SHIT OR SORRY. NONE FOR YOU. Alright, I just had to get that off my chest. I found some sweet music this weekend, too, so without further adieu…
Mourn – Silver Gold
Barely out of high school and already playing Pitchfork Music Festival this weekend, Barcelona punks MOURN found their way into my inbox recently, and I cannot stop playing this track in particular. I love the structure of the track, and added female vocals (three of the four band members are chicks) gives it a much more raw and genuine sound. Definitely excited to peep their set at P4K on Sunday!
Cashy – Who You Wanna Be (prod. Purp Dogg)
NeonPajamas’ Mishka Records dropped some serious gasoline recently with the second collaborative EP between Cashy and Purp Dogg. “Who You Wanna Be”, the first song on the project, is fun and boastful making it nearly impossible not to bounce to its swinging beat. Don’t sleep on the rest of the project either, which features holographic e-trading cards with the Bandcamp download.
Adrian Young & Ghostface Killah – Get The Money (feat. Vince Staples)
It’s not very often you get someone like Ghostface Killah on a track with LA youngster Vince Staples, but the product when it finally happens is absolute cream. Producer Adrian Young just dropped a collaborative album with the Wu-Tang titan, which features additional features from RZA, Raekwon and Bilal. This project is a definite must-listen for any old head, so don’t sleep!
Ramriddlz – Sweeterman (Drake Remix)
There has been a lot of shade thrown at Apple in the past few months as they begin their even further descent and takeover of the music industry with the launching of Apple Music and now Beats1 radio. Though I personally haven’t tested Apple Music out, I did get a chance to read up on and hear some of the Beats1 sets, which featured shows from Soulection’s Joe Kay and OVOSOUND, and I must say I am impressed. During Drake’s inaugural set, he unveiled a few remixes of his, including this one of Ramriddlz “Sweeterman”. I really can’t stop listening to this song, and the original, and really all I want to know is…WHAT THE FUCK DOES “EDUNANANE” MEAN?!?! $10 to the first person who can explain what the fuck dude is talking about. I’m very curious.
