Fun Fun Fun fest: 11.06.11

Oh Sunday, Fun Fun Fun Day, I gotta admit it was a little hard to get started.  After enduring some 20 hours of festival living (aka eating and drinking dust and watching live music), and endless nites of violent, half-naked emcees (B L A C K I E), blackgaze chaos (Deafheaven) and horsecore (Dead...

Fun Fun Fun fest: 11.05.11

As if threes days and nites of triple fun wasn’t enough, the time police tacked on an extra hour last night.  First it was 1:45am and then it was 12:45am.  That hour was very unnecessary and highly detrimental to my well being.  I blame that hour for how I feel this morning.  Luckily, I...

Hip Hop is dead. Long live Hip Hop.

Hip Hop is dead.  Long live Hip Hop.

I have been pretty hard on hip-hop recently.  I don’t want to be, I just can’t help it.  I get excited every time I hear someone raving about a new release, but more often than not I am left disappointed and confused.  Am I getting too old to understand what ‘good’ hip-hop means?  Am...

‘what’s a god to a non-believer?’

Kanye West & Jay-Z – Watch The Throne (Roc-A-Fella, 2011) Watch The Throne, the much-hyped collaboration between Kanye West and Jay-Z, isn’t going to win these two any new fans, but they won’t lose any either.  If you are a fan of these giants of hip-hop, you should enjoy this album.  You might even...

Watching The Throne: notes from the first listen

Watching The Throne: notes from the first listen

I just paid $14.99 for an album on iTunes. I don’t think I have ever bought an album on iTunes and I have never paid $14.99 for digital music.  The fact that I charged something more than a $0.99 iPhone game to my iTunes account is a testament to the marketing skills and ‘leak...

‘the combination made my eyes bleed’

Wugazi – 13 Chambers (self-released, 2011) Obviously this album layers Wu-Tang rhymes over Fugazi post-rock to create the ultimate tribute to the early 90’s.  What might not be so obvious before listening to the album is how well these diverse groups fit together.  Like Danger Mouse and Jaydiohead before them, Cecil Otter, Swiss Andy,...

Wugazi = Doomtree + Wu-Tang + Fugazi = Awesome

Wugazi = Doomtree + Wu-Tang + Fugazi = Awesome

In these days when most are too jaded to even waste their time claiming ‘hip-hop is dead’, the Minneapolis-based Doomtree collective continue to put out exciting releases from P.O.S., Dessa and most recently Simms.  Today they leaked the first track off their Wugazi project.  Joining the likes of Danger Mouse‘s Grey Album and Jaydiohead‘s...

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Love Colorado

It had been well over a year since I’d been to a hip-hop show.  Sure, I’d seen hip-hop acts at festivals, but the last true hip-hop show I attended was the P.O.S., Dessa, Grieves show back in February of last year.  It’s not that I don’t like hip-hop, it’s just that I have been...
