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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
