Was there always this much music? I mean, I’ve been in the game a long time, and I can’t ever remember a period of such an incessant deluge of content splooshing forth bukkake-like unto the world’s faces like the one we’re in now. Who can keep up anymore?
That’s why we tirelessly troll through the internet jukebox for prime cuts and sides for you good people who are far too busy being productive members of society to pay enough attention. With that in mind, here are three new songs/joints/jams/trax that have absolutely nothing in common save their immediate existence that you’ll want to listen to today then probably forget about by tomorrow when the next group punches in for their shift on the buzz mill.
“Cold Nites” by How to Dress Well
Sounds like: Spooky choir boys putting on an r&b theme pageant in the rectory basement. Also, that one Aaliyah song kind of, strangely. RIP
Listen to it: Laying in your bedroom with the AC blowing, because it’s too fucking hot to do anything, never mind instigate the type of sexual scenario a song like this would normally lend itself to.
Russian Roulette by The Alchemist
Sounds like: A janky VHS recording of a NYC local access program circa 1982 and/or the soundtrack to a globe-trotting blaxploitation horror film.
Listen to it: When you meet a friend who’s new to the internet and needs a quick crash course on every single blog-core rapper in the game at the moment, including Action Bronson, Danny Brown, Schoolboy Q, and a million others.
Silencio by Laetitia Sadier
Sounds like: A jaunty stroll through the Parisian streets of the retro future, aka Stereolab, durr.
Listen to it: When you can’t reach your other Stereolab records. If you’re sad. Also if you’re happy. Any time, really. Until the next thing that is.
