Top 10 Albums (no particular order)
Kendrick Lamar: Good Kid, m.a.a.d. City
“Swimming Pools (Drank)”

Kendrick Lamar has the Outkast factor.  I can listen to his songs, intently focusing on the lyrics while getting lost in the scenes he vividly describes, or I can zone out, not pay attention to what he’s saying and dance to the beat while singing along with the incredibly infectious hooks.  GKMC feels like 3 Stacks and Big Boi rolling through Compton with Caine and O-Dog from Menace II Society.

Standout Tracks:  Money Trees, Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe, The Art of Peer Pressure, Swimming Pools (Drank), The Recipe Continue reading

Posted in Music News, News with tags , , , , on Thursday, February 23, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

Yesterday the new track by the Gorillaz was released. This track is a funky rendition that utilizes its guest collaborators, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and Andre 3000, very well. It has the catchy sound of a classic LCD Soundsystem track with an added flow from Andre 3ooo to finish it off. The new track is available for download on converse.com(great marketing I may add) so if you like what you hear go on over and scoop this one up for free. While you are there check out the Limited Edition Chuck Taylor Gorillaz Collection or play around and design your own pair of Classic Chuck Taylors.

Gorillaz Announce Guest Collaborators

Posted in Music News, News with tags , , , , , , , , on Thursday, February 9, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

Earlier today Murdoc the front animation-man announced who the guest collaborators were for the new Gorillaz track via Soundcloud. The two lucky artists are Andre 3000(Outkast) and James Murphy(LCD Soundsystem). The group of men will be releasing “DoYaThing” in two weeks on February 23, 2012 and will be available for a free download on that day via Converse.com. Anytime you get 3 musical geniuses together you know something brilliant is going to happen and anytime James Murphy is working on something new I want to know. Having the brainchild of LCD Soundsystem team up with Gorillaz is one dream that is going to become a reality in two weeks. After saying that the only question is; can I just go to bed now and wake up then?
