Check out “All Day” the latest drop from Kanye West‘s just announced So Help Me God album featuring Allan Kingdom, Theophilus London & Paul McCartney and created by a cast of thousands (well 19, actually but still…). BTW: apparently what Paul McCartney is whistling at the end is a sample of an unreleased track of his from 1970 called “When The Wind Is Blowing” (according to Stereogum that is). Hit the jump for another track, “Wolves” featuring Sia & Vic Mensa (note: kind of lo-res but still listenable).

The new Sour Soul album by Toronto’s Badbadnotgood and Ghostface (who needs no introudction, I hope!) just dropped yesterday and it’s great. Despite all the hype when they first came out, I was never much of a fan of BBNG but they’ve made a believer out of me of late between the Future Islands ‘Seasons’ remix, the Rubber Tracks show with GFK last week in Toronto (click those links or see the IG video above) and now this album.
BBNG’s all live, cinematic-feeling soul-jazz noir topped with Ghost’s amazing lyricism??! This could have been dialed in or turned out potentially really corny but Sour Soul easily surpasses my expectations. This will certainly be one of my albums of the year for 2015. Here are four tracks from Sour Soul for your previewing pleasure:
BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah – Ray Gun (feat. DOOM):
BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah – Street Knowledge (Feat. Tree):
BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah – Six Degrees (feat. Danny Brown):
BADBADNOTGOOD & Ghostface Killah – Sour Soul:
Dig those (and you should if you have any sense or real taste!)? Then check out the entire Sour Soul album HERE.
Beyonce, J. Cole, D’Angelo, Drake… I’m loving these no hype album drops. It’s proof the old music industry model for releasing and promising albums is dead? Or is it?
– Meet Gabriel Garzón-Montano, the artist behind Drake‘s ‘Jungle’ sample. [Red Bull Sound Select]
– From Now magazine: What’s up with Drizzy’s new Scarborough accent? The article is meh/semi-interesting but the comments are pure gold!
– DJ Mastermind says, “Stay in school, kids!”
Full disclosure: I used to clown this kid when he first came out. I was not much of a fan but he made a believer out of me. First track, “Used To” featuring the kid, Drizzy Drake.
Unlike my Favorite Albums of 2014 List posted yesterday there is some sense of what was more liked versus less liked here on my Favorite Songs (not necessarily just singles) List of 2014. The Top 10 is the 10 songs I voted for in this year’s Village Voice Pazz and Jop poll and my number […]
I explained pretty well the criteria I used to do my year-end list back in 2012 but for those of you too lazy to click that link, this is not a list of the ‘best’, most commercially successful or most critically acclaimed albums. The only acclaim these albums have are that they are my favorites. […]
What can I say about Melbourne, Australia’s Audego? I discovered this trip hop electronic soul duo while doing a little side gig hustle screening submissions for NXNE this year and I have been a committed fan ever since checking out both of their shows when they flew halfway around the world to perform twice at […]
Gotta give the homie, J.Nolan mad props. He took getting down with the #DK11 THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… album real serious and hustled to get his contribution to the album, a track titled “Deluxe Edition” on all kinds of blogs and sites. Shouts to DJBooth.net, All In A Day’s Work, CWMuzik, AyeBro, TOAN Magazine, […]
