Lots Of New Music To End An Epic Night

Tonight has been too epic. Between the State of the Union Address, the “IAmWhoAmI” mystery, and the iPad introduction, I’m all out of steam. Oh yeah, one other big piece of news – hip-hop artist and my partner over here at P&P Frank Ramz is at the hospital right now expecting a baby girl! He’s a good man and I’m sure he’s gonna make a great father. Gigantic congratulations to Ramz! Hope it’s cool I disclosed that on P&P.

So with all this big news, I’m afraid anything I post will be severely underwhelming. So let’s just play catch up. I have a small arsenal of recent music releases by some pretty big names in the indie world. Let all that epic shit settle in your stomach and gnaw on this to encourage digestion.

First up is a Miike Snow b-side. Miike Snow’s waste is better than most peoples’ masterpiece, so don’t let that b-side word twist you up. As always, the production is toxic.

Next we have a new track from She & Him. She & Him is M.Ward and actress Zooey Deschanel. I used to be into Zooey, but then I saw that 500 Days of Summer movie and hated her character so much that it translated into disgust with Zooey. It’s wrong, but I can’t help it. This song is boring to me, but it’s being received well by others. They probably haven’t seen 500 Days of Summer yet.

This is Joanna Newsom’s latest. Um. Imagine a fairy playing a harp and singing about a garden party. If that doesn’t appeal to you, move on. This doesn’t click with me.

Caribou’s new song. This is more my style. Complicated medium-fi dance music for people with their heads in the clouds. Not a soul out there with the sound of Caribou. Digging it. I’d love to hear a rapper get in on this beat.

Caribou – Odessa | YouSendIt

New Hot Chip. Thanks to Will for this one. This is a 5 minute electro-pop dance track that builds on itself for close to 5 minutes. I’m used to a fluffier Hot Chip, but on this one I was half expecting to hear Pitbull jump in at the 1:57 mark. I won’t complain though, not a bad track.

Hot Chip – I Feel Better | YouSendIt

I know a lot of heads come to this site for the hip-hop and probably stare blankly at the wall with their mouths open when they play something like Joanna Newsom. It’s okay. You stuck it out this far, and I got you. I just got my hands on the new Intuition album. I’m not allowed to spread it any more than I already have (top left of the page, Search: Intuition), but I’m pretty sure this song is already out there, so get it. The album is fucking greatness. I haven’t heard this much honest personality on an album since the last Atmosphere LP (He even got a Slug collabo on the album). Intuition is the shit.

Hand in my waistband, so Al Bundy

    c'mon Fusi, I've always liked your blog because you (usually) post what you LIKE, not just "what's out there" like the other blogs…Please, don't post the songs that are boring to you, because, more than likely, they're boring to us as well! Post what YOU like, not what you think people will like.My two pennies have been dropped. 🙂 P & P is tha shit tho, keep it rollin.

    Gotta disagree dude…he puts shit out there for us to evaluate as well. If he knows a song got hype he's not gonna post it just because he didn't like that particular song. I like it when he just puts out a bunch of songs and gives us his evaluation.. whether we're gonna agree or disagree he leaves up to us to decide..But I do agree "P & P is tha shit"

    Haha thanks guys. Two good opinions. It's good to hear what people want/don't want. I can't please everyone, but I'll definitely consider both sides.Usually I post stuff that I think you should listen to, even if it's just one listen and moving on. 95% of the time, I think you should listen because it's music I like. So don't worry about me posting everything out there. I definitely want to provide some kind of filter, but when I do post something I don't like, I'll let you know my opinion and like Anon #2 said, you can make up your own.

    Haha, I'm into She and Him cuz it's mellow chill music but I agree. Zooey represented how females can play mindfuck games in 500 Days of Summer. Not cool. 🙂 Katy Perry…yes please.
