1 KENDRICK LAMAR good kid, m.A.A.d city
Election day is today, and we’re all writhing with excitement. Also, we listened to some good music today. Here’s the newest pop additions to the Pop WOBC Vault:
Prince Rama // Top Ten Hits at the End of the World
Party at the end of the world! Everyone’s invited! Prince Rama’s greatest hits album got tarred and glittered and then electrocuted itself during a bubble bath. Huge, glamorous production — so obsessed with itself…deprived of oxygen from too much hair gel. A+++
Onuinu // Mirror Grazer
Surprise! Chillwave is still not over. And I am totally OK with it, and all of that funky/fuzzy synthy bouncy poppy-pop that this CD brings to the party.
Why? // Mumps, etc
Partial raps, good beats, good vibes.
Deacon Blue – Real Gone Kid
Brainbombs – After Acid
Fishmans – Night Cruising
Jim Pepper – Newly-Weds Song
Lust For Youth – Cover Their Faces (Live)
Lou Reed – Like A Possum
“Headboggle is the manifestation of Derek Gedalecia’s acoustic/electronic research utilizing the “kitchen sink” in every sense of the idiom: Moogs, Harmonica, Banjo, Harpsichord, Irish Harp, EMS Synthi, Violin, Drums, Clavinet, Serge Modular, field recordings and more! What makes “Headboggle” so special is the careful arrangement of sound, with painstaking attention to composition and sound direction. Disorienting magic is a key trait of the Head Boggle sound, one which captivates and commands repeated inspection.” – Editions Mego
Don’t miss out on this one. Headboggle plays at Fairchild Chapel tonight, November 6, at 8 PM with Collapsed Arc and local sillyboys Schweinmacht. Gonna get weird. See clip below of Headboggle live…
I’m really into rap right now, probably a little too much. After last month’s A$AP Rocky concert, I can’t stop listening. It got to the point that my friends had to sit me down and remind me there is more music to be heard than solely Danny Brown. I realized I had to broaden my pallet; there is such a thing as overplaying an artist. But while staying within the confines of my beloved rap genre, I began to expand, listening to various other artists. In my expansion, I began listening to Kendrick Lamar. As his 2010 album, Section 80, was critically acclaimed, immense hype surrounded his latest release, good kid, m.A.A.d. city. I had to give it a listen. And though I can’t call it groundbreaking, “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” is nonetheless a great album.
Although I don’t agree that “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” is the instant classic it has been deemed by various music publications, it still is ultimately a success. The production is varied, encompassing pseudo- electronica and hard guttural beats, with Lamar effectively
With my “Lil Wayne is killing hip-hop” rant aside, I need to emphasize that, while I don’t view “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” as wildly original, it still is to me the best rap album of the year.
