Run The Jewels= Killer Mike + El-P

Check it out. Hip-Hop that’s more intricately written/performed/produced than most of the top billboard charters, and well worth a listen AND a free download (link below). Big Boi shows up at the end of the track ‘Banana Clipper’–almost as an add on to the song, but still very present and unique in his Daddy Fat Sax way. 

The video for ’36” chain’ is pretty wild, as well. Google it.




….so I have this secret…shhh….and if it got out, people might think I was crazy.

I wasn’t that excited for the new Arrested Development season to come out on Netflix. [insert gasp here] I guess I was a late bloomer as far as tv shows go and never got into it. But whatever, the hype was all over social media, and I went along with the excitement as people told me eagerly about the Arrested Development banana party they were going to or how they planned on watching all of the shows that evening while sipping on juice.

My excitement was for a little something different. I’ve written about Lucy Schwartz before on this blog (feel free to search her name on here). She is one of my more popular Aural Fixations. Her albums remain on my 16gb iPhone while others get rotated off or deleted to make more room for my other app necessities. I don’t tire of her music. To me, everyone else’s excitement of Arrested Development paralleled mine for new songs by Lucy and this is what I did instead of going to a tv show party–I listened on repeat to the two new songs that were featured on Arrested Development (her pop wrote the music for the tv show and was of course a big part of her song). ‘Boomerang,’ one of my favorite songs she has done, was featured in the finale. Listen below and try to not listen to it more than once (or attempt to tap dance for that matter). Just try. And make sure to check out her new album that comes out on August 6th, Timekeeper.

There’s a free download link to the song below the youtube video

Today is Muhsinah’s birthday, yet she is giving you a present by dropping her totally free and totally great double EP. It is titled Gone and is broken up into 2 sides, Urban and Suburban featuring 3 songs on each side that sound like distorted mirrors of each other, perhaps created to capture different moods. One≈Down to 1, Stop & Go≈Stop, Gone≈Till I’m Gone.

Muhsinah is “The Golden Girl” from D.C; she wrote, composed, produced and recorded this album. As the Spice Girls said “Girl Power!”
Her EP braids soulful vocals and meaningful lyrics with catchy, pop electronics.

We all love free music. Well here you go. Exploding In Sound has served us music from a variety of artists on a platter. The compilation acts as a cohesive unit, so go ahead and sit back, fire up the BBQ or drive and press play. Ah yes, and I was responsible for getting the “ok” for Les Savy Fav to be on the mix.
