Basically just gonna listen to this for the rest of the summer.
Retrograde — James Blake
I love the variety of styles in this song.
I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head for weeks. Usually those types of songs are Top 40 hits or Kia commercial tracks, but in this case, the song is indie gold. Unconventional harmonies, nonsensical lyrics, but a masterful melody.
I’m God — Clams Casino
I’ve now watched this three times and can’t help but have a big goofy smile on my face. Why haven’t I listened to Macklemore before now?
Daft Punk in ‘97, oh man.
Pretty sure by this point Justin has me tagged as “that kid that ‘likes’ every fucking music thing I post” but this link is too good to pass up. I also highly recommend the 2009 Fake Blood mix.
Whiz Khalifa (April) — Robb Bank$
Wait for the intro to end. Great album in total (Calendars).

I think this is one of the best hip-hop songs ever. The beat is contagious.
I’m often poked fun at for liking hip-hop, especially of the dirtier/gangster sort… is it because I’m a relatively well-behaved skinny white boy? Probably.
I think what I like about some grungier hip-hop is in fact its blatant egotism and superficiality. Sometimes I want nothing more than a good beat and some surface-level wordplay… Nevertheless, seeing what was really meant by the words on rap genius is really neat.
Alternately, you can look at it as a business model.
