Get Your Snifters Up

Ffinally... (see yesterday) Maybe it was just me, but was that not the longest-short week ever?
Bringin' it home to quitting time this week is Bop Alloy, the collaboration between Baltimore rapper Substantial and Seattle producer Marcus D
This Rap style brings me back to that classic era Long Island/Queens sound from Tribe and De La Soul that has kept hip-hop-heads bouncing for over 30 Years. The beats are sick, the rhymes are great and whole album sounds like it should be listened to with a snifter of brandy in hand. Take whatever you've been working on, put it to bed and get out there and enjoy your weekend.

Greetings Mortals

Hat tip to my girl Megan (click her deliciousness here) on this one, but Portland export Unknown Mortal Orchestra is currently supplying my Thursday with it's necessary grooves. You can stream their whole self titled debut on Spin's website right now. It's a really good listen capable of eeking you closer and closer to that glorious Friday. 

Even though they look like the only three people who could be beaten up by Michael Cera, these awk-looking kids pack a serious punch as they hit the scene with this tune, Ffunny Ffriends. Oddly enuff, it's not the ffirst time we've had a Double-F here on #EDAS, (click here to teleport). Catch them in NYC September 14 when they come to Webster Hall with Toro y Moi (tix here). Out of towners, including some dates in Europe, check the rest of their tour dates here.

Check out this remix of Danish singer (and Neo-Brooklynite) Oh Land's 2010 single, Son of a Gun, produced by Jacob Plant. I'm not a 100% what's happening here but the heavy industrial sound over the bubble-pop is a welcome combination.
