Mr. UU and DaDadoh – Again and Again

This is a really cool track produced by Mr. UU featuring DaDadoh. This East Valley duo recently came together to collab after performing so many shows together. The track has a mesmerizing synth lead paired with clever word play and hat nods towards 80′s high school proms. This beat has been one of my favorite Mr. UU beats. Most certainly check this song and these guys out.

Jonwayne – Cassette 3: The Marion Morrison Mixtape

jonwayneI thought it was so wonderful for Stones Throw to post this as a free download. This is a cool ass mixtape. The production and wacky style is reminiscent of MF Doom. The Mixtape boast some rehashes and a batch of cool ass beats. JonWayne goes over the orgin of his name and explains that he’s not another play-on-words hipster. Peep it. You can download it here

Ride- Nowhere Album Review

When I first heard this album, I actually kinda hated it. However, I learned to really like the singer’s voice. The dreamy guitar rifts that backed Gardener and Bell’s vocals really persuade the listener into this sticky nag champa scented web called Shoegaze. Known as the scene that celebrates itself. A lot of early Shoegaze acts specially in the UK usually were associated with one another and were often very supportive of the scene. One of the singers from this band went on to become the basis for Alternative Brit-Pop band Oasis.ride

   The bridges during these songs on this album are my favorite parts. Similar to how I always look forward to the scratch breaks by DJ Premier. This band does a real good job shoegazing. What do you expect form a Smiths inspired band? Once I accepted the singer’s vocals I fell in love with the group instantly. Such a bittersweet experience. My favorite song on this album is Dreams Burn Down. Anywho, peep it. Anyone who likes Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine or anybody like that will enjoy this.
