Anyone picked up any good new music lately?
Went on a bit of a tear lately on allofmp3.com and snagged the following:
- Arctic Monkeys- these guys are gonna be hot sh1t this summer, I can already tell after a few listens through the album. they're just regular dudes singing about regular things rather than the whiny woe-is-our-world stuff you're hearing from a lot of their counterparts these days
- DJ Muggs vs GZA "Grandmaster"- the Cypress Hill DJ paired with GZA from the Wu, interesting stuff because the production is completely unique and totally different from what you'd expect if you've heard Liquid Swords.
- Wu-Tang Meets Indie Culture- another random matchup that works. a bunch of raps by underground-type guys, paired with Wu (Dreddie Kruger) beats. This one's gonna get heavy play in the ol' Ipod.
- MF Doom and Danger Mouse "Danger Doom"- this album is inspired by Adult Swim from the Cartoon Network. I don't watch that very often so I'm missing out on some of the references but it's catchy as hell, and I wanted to see what Danger was getting into after the Grey Album
- Thievery Corp "Cosmic Game"- Saw these guys spin at their club in DC last weekend, and finally got around to getting one of their albums. It's pretty funky, down-tempo kind of stuff. Good background music for when you have people over for a couple of cocktails, grown-up style (not that I do that too often, but hey)
I'm looking fwd to the Curious George sdtk by Jack Johnson, as well as Idlewild by Outkast. Anything else on the horizon people are anticipating?
