Gang Starr – “Ex-Girl to Next Girl” (1992)

This song makes me think: ‘Damn, I’m glad I flexed and busted out of that mess.’  From one of the greatest albums of the ’90s, rap or otherwise, Daily Operation.


New Music: Fever Ray “When I Grow Up”

This is the latest video from Fever Ray.  I gave the album a listen for the first time last night while driving on the highway through a cold midnight mist.  That seemed like the most appropriate way to break in the solo record from The Knife’s Karin Dreijer Andersson.

[Fever Ray releases in the U.S. March 24th on Mute]

Shit Vids: Chris Cornell “Part of Me”

I had a pretty awful feeling when I heard Chris Cornell was teaming up with Timbaland to record an album.  Soundgarden was one of my favorite bands, and Cornell was one of rock’s truly great frontmen, but dude is well past his grace period.  Just how bad is this?  Think Rob Thomas/Santana.  Or Marc Anthony’s “I Need to Know”.  I’m not even sure a Nickleback/Fatboy Slim jam would be worse than this.  This is actually so terrible that I’m having trouble coming up with snarky things to say about it. I seriously feel like I’m making fun of someone with Downs Syndrome.  How do you go from “Room a Thousand Years Wide” to this?
