All The Sounds Of The Earth Are Like Music
It's going to take me a day or two to put some finishing touches on my next links post. Until then, here's what's happenin' in my headphones:
"What You Don't Want Me To Be"---Lee Moses
There's a relatively good chance that many of you have never heard of Lee Moses, and will make the terrible mistake of passing by the opportunity to download this song. While not exactly a household name, Lee's work has rendered much praise and recognition from soul aficionados worldwide (see O-Dub, for example). The LP that this track comes from (Time and Place) is one of those rare musical offerings that can be thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. It wasn't easy to make a single selection, but this song is gut-wrenching soul music at its very finest. Trust me...you'll be able to feel this one in your spleen.
"Practice What You Preach"---Poets Of Rhythm
Switchin' moods quicker than a manic-depressive crack fiend, I now bring you an uptempo groove that features some truly funktastic breaks. Come to think of it, this track could be a stunningly appropriate theme song for the GOP...if only the Republicans had more soul...Check out The Poets' discography here.
"Hold Mines"---Showbiz and AG
I don't think I'll ever tire of listening to the beat on this track. I'm going to be a little bit biased (as usual), and say that no self-respecting hip-hop fan should be unaware of this joint. I lost my copy of Full Scale several years ago to one of my shady friends who never returns stuff. I finally copped this track again some time last year, courtesy of the almighty Havas.
"It Was All A Dream (Kid Jerzee Mix)" ---Jay-Z/ Notorious B.I.G.
I wasn't in the mood for a Black Album remix today, but I said I'd be hosting Hov joints until Kingdom Come, and I'm one stubborn son-of-a bitch (sorry Mom). This is a perfectly nice blend---cop it.
For those of you who are still searching for a preview of what Kingdom Come has to offer, download "Beach Chair" at Notes From A Different Kitchen and "Trouble" via The Scattermish Bloooog.
Back in a blink with your goddamn links...
