Okay so I've asked a lot of my friends recently if they've heard this track and they've all said "no." How is this possible? It's got one of those Kanye beats that sound like he didn't have the budget to bring Jon Brion in to play some kooky toy piano music that makes you think of Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet running around on the beach; in other words, it's a loop.
It's been way too cold the past 2 days so I've been listening to songs like this to warm me up
Another great LP

Has there ever been a better music label than Arts and Crafts? Broken Social Scene, The Stars, Feist, Phoenix, Most Serene Republic...I mean what the fuck, talk about the best quality control department ever. Next in line is Los Campesinos, and naturally they are goddamn fantastic. Sounds like: The Go Team without samples, or Broken Social Scene on speedballs.

Never listened to them cause of their dumb name.
Downloaded because I was borred and wanted work music.

*I get it they sound like My Morning Jacket a little. I wish more bands did.

It seems like we've been on one hell of a collective good luck streak lately...Obama's ahead in the democratic race, asshole leaders in Pakistan and Cuba are both stepping down, it was 60 degrees in NYC yesterday...like all of a sudden 2008 hits and shit is just coming together for us. And now to add to it there's Jay Electronica, an MC as exciting and intriguing as his presidential counterpart. Connecting the dots between Nas, Common, and Kanye without the shitty beats, preachiness, or bullshit materialism respectively, Jay made the above mixtape a few years back by himself, using only beatless orchestral samples from "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", turning them into a kind of metaphysical medley that blurs all kinds of genre lines. With a debut as ballsy as that, how is this guy not going to be huge?
A few more tracks:
