It’s raining outside, I’m fighting off a cold, so it’s time for more music!
My latest torrid love affair is this gem right here, one of the latest releases of the Los Angeles-based experimental rock band, HEALTH.
Of course I had to put down a few words about this one.
Now, to be quite honest, I’m not going to go into Compton native Kendrick Lamar‘s bio too much, there’s plenty about him all over the blogosphere, but, for the completely uninitiated, here’s my less-than-30-words-summary: California rapper hailed as the next big thing due to his impressive lyricism, strong storytelling skills, and a penchant for deep introspection and social commentary…ya bish.
Now this is a track to vibe to.
All day I’ve been listening to this one, a track from Chequered Thoughts, the debut album of the R&B/Neo-soul/Dat good old smoothchilljams outfit known as Funkommunity, the pairing of singer Rachel Frasier and producer Isaac Aesili.
Depression shouldn’t sound this jaunty.
Oh, how I love this record. Let me count the ways.
