Song Of The Day – D’angelo – The Root

Posted in Music by flicksandbits on September 15, 2009

D’angelo for me is the best + one of the most influental artists of his generation, The Root is track is taken from his Voodoo album which is one of my favorite albums, to this day the album gets REGULAR rotation. His new album which hasn’t been officially named so far but is rumored to be called James River is currently scheduled for the 1st quarter of 2010………….10 years in the waiting COME ON BRUV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Song Of The Day – Kid Cudi – Pursuit Of Happiness ft MGMT + Ratatat

Posted in Music by flicksandbits on September 11, 2009

Been bumping this track non stop the last few days. To be honest I’ve been a bit of a Kid Cudi hater until I heard his debut album this week.

Before I thought he was a bit too moany and emo-ish for my liking. His album has really surprised me, I’m feeling it (no bruno). Musically it’s very different to what I’ve  heard from albums lately

Check out Pyroradio.com’s Interview with Kid Cudihttp://www.pyroradio.com/index.cfm/act/interview_details/id/130

PyroRadio.com: Is there a personal favourite on the album?

Kid Cudi: Yeah, definitely Heart of a Lion and Pursuit of Happiness. Those two joints hit me the most because they are so powerful and epic.

PyroRadio.com: You have quite an eclectic taste; which artists are you currently listening to?

Kid Cudi: Definitely Kings of Leon, MGMT, Kanye West, Jay-Z, OutKast. I vibe and listen to a bunch of shit at random moments.

PyroRadio.com: How did the collaboration with MGMT come about?

Kid Cudi: I’m a huge MGMT fan so when it came time to work on my album I had to reach out to them. I had to do something with them – same with Rat-a-tat. We had the initial meeting, we hung out and I just wanted to vibe with them and play them some of them album and they were into it. I felt that they were interested after hearing the album at what I could bring to the table. Then we started thinking about other projects we can do and working together. It was organic and it came together quite fresh.

Song Of The Day: Jay Z feat Mr Hudson – Forever Young

Posted in Music by flicksandbits on September 9, 2009

Feeling this track along with Empire State Of Mind feat Alicia Keys (produced by the UKs Shux) and A Star Is Born feat J.Cole it’s my favorite track from Jay Z’s new album Blueprint 3, to be honest overall I think the album is average. A lot of the production wasn’t cutting it for me, especially Timbalands beats. Raekwon’s album>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.Blueprint 3.

Interviewing Mr Hudson this week, look out for the interview this time next week.
