SONG OF THE DAY: Frank Ocean — “Voodoo”

Frankie O’ (don’t worry, were friends so I can use nicknames) just released the following track on his tumblr, by which I mean to say his website. It’s got a classic “love you baby” r&b background with slightly odd but actually pretty poetic lyrics. It’s short but I sure hope there is more of this on whatever upcoming project it’s from. Frank-Ocean-Voodoo

Enjoy!

Teo is a sophomore at CC. He has a radio show every Tuesday 7-9pm, it’s got all sorts of stuff. Check it out.

SONG OF THE DAY: Adele — Rolling in the Deep (Jamie XX Remix) ft. Childish Gambino

Adele – Rolling in the Deep (Jamie xx remix) ft. Childish Gambino (wemakeitbetter) by JThunder

Adele’s soulful voice with the bass drum puts the song in a completely new area, and Childish Gambino doesn’t enter until half way through, but adds another stellar layer to the song.  Also if you haven’t yet, be sure to check out CAMP, Gambino’s most recent album released late 2011.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPCOMING SHOW: Atmosphere, Common, and Grieves at Red Rocks 1/27

If tickets aren’t sold out yet, they’ll go soon, so get on that. This is the first winter show Red Rocks has ever hosted. Ever. This song is “Guns and Cigarettes” by Atmosphere, off the album Lucy Ford. Slug is one of my favorite MCs ever, and puts on a great show. Grieves is also coming into a style all his own, and is from Colorado. I can’t speak for Common, but it’s sure to be a great time.

SONG OF THE DAY: RUN-DMC — “Christmas in Hollis”

SONG OF THE DAY: Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside – Danger

This tune is off their 2011 album Dirty Radio released on Partisan Records.

SONG OF THE DAY: LCD Soundsystem — “All My Friends”

This is from LCD Soundsystem’s Sound of Silver released in 2007 on DFA.  The video was done in a single take and directed by Tom Kuntz, who interestingly enough also directed the emmy-winning Old Spice “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” commercials.

SONG OF THE DAY: Anthony Hamilton – “The Truth”

Anthony Hamilton is without a doubt one of my favorite soul/r&b artists. “The Truth”, off the excellent album Ain’t Nobody Worryin’, is one of my favorite songs. So it is sort of a no brainer for Song of The Day. Another no brainer is checking out his new album, Back to Love, which the good people at NPR have made available for free here.

Enjoy,

Teo
