Foreign Exchange // Maybe She’ll Dream of Me

At this point idiot landlords and needless amounts of legislation are what is turning me into a defeated wreck of my potential self. Usually the reason is just dem hoes. This latest offering from FE is a perfect soundtrack to such sentimental/pathetic/optimistic/who needs her anyway thoughts. Mr “I had no idea until a couple of weeks ago that he was singing on all those Little Brother Songs” Phonte and Dutch beatfreak Nicolay have teamed up for another album and they’ve set out another breezy slice of soul-pop.

Cody Chesnutt // Come Back Like Spring

Do you ever wonder if Premiership footballers when they were younger went to their local 5 aside and hung around with their mates who had bulldogs and bought WKDs for the sister of that guy they knew in middle school, and despite there being fights on the pitches the manager of the place just wandered around and perved on girls that were dangerously too young for him making inappropriate innuendos?

Yo Gabba Gabba is the Shit

Mos Def as a superhero. I’m sold. He popped up this week on the indie bands’ kid’s show of choice, with a funky entrance. The obligatory song is delightful, and keeps the rap artist presence on the show continuing after The Roots owned the shit of this show. When I saw their song I couldn’t stop smiling for like 2 hours, look how happy ?uestlove looks at 31 secs, amazing.
