DOOM -- Born Like This


New Album just dropped

(he officially dropped the MF)

I'm a big Doom fan and Doom himself stated this was his best CD yet

I've heard the majority of the CD and Doom def went in

Some of the beats are so complex it distracts you from what he is trying to say

The cool kids will be excited to know (or already know) that Thom Yorke whipped up a beat for Doom that he used on the "Gazillion Ear" remix

check this shit out

Ahmad Jamal!!!

Ahmad Jamal is coming to the Blue Note

May 19th thru the 23rd

"Be there or be a jerk"

For those that don't know, Ahmad Jamal is arguably one of the most imfluential jazz pianists alive

Miles Davis said Ahmad Jamal was an influence on him, soooooooooo

His work has been sampled by countless rappers, first that comes to mind in Nas' "I Gave You Power"

P.S. just saw James Moody live last night, homeboy is 83 yrs and can still play his ass off

Peter Bjorn & John video

New video from PB&J starring some Japanese greasers... def never seen anything like this

Is it just me, or does this song sound a lot like Lykke Li's "I'm Good, I'm Gone"?

They're all from Sweden, so who knows?

If you're not sure who PB&J are, you have probably heard their song "Young Folks"
