Warm Brew-Warm Brew EP

Leave a comment

As I’ve mentioned before, there are a few blogs that I follow not because of their popularity, but because of their taste in music. More specifically, I can’t think of a time I haven’t looked at a post by Confusion over at PigeonsAndPlanes or Jamarcus over at MostlyJunkFood and wondered why they let some post go. To me, those guys have amazing taste in music, music which is very similar to what I like. Well, this Warm Brew grind was brought to you by none other than Marc over at MJF.

I downloaded this EP without listening to it, solely because of who recommended it. It sat dormant in my iTunes for almost a week before I dusted it off and gave it a spin. Definitely worth it.

Warm Brew is a new group out of Los Angeles, however, they aren’t like other LA acts like Odd Future, Lil B, etc. They have a nice distinct old-school sound with a little bit of new school flavor; think of them as the bridge between guys like Pharcyde and Goodie Mobb, and anything that’s come out in the last few years. I’m not sure of a time when a warm brew sounds appealing but, these guys make it taste good. They bend genres and their sound is incredibly smooth with some pretty dope lyrics and samples. A lot of nice spoken word ish too. No way you can put these guys in a box. Plus, this album is perfect for the summer, which I think is happening right now. One track below, and when you inevitably love that, the whole mixtape download is right below it. Looking forward to more from this group.

Childish Gambino-Lights Turned On (Modern Classic)

Leave a comment

Yesterday, I randomly watched Donald Glover’s movie Mystery Team. Contrary to what I was expecting, it was pretty funny with a nice good vs. evil/weird vs. normal complex going on.
Figured I’d play some Childish Gambino stuff today in the library and I tossed on the EP that came out a couple months ago. CG can go hard, his nasally delivery and flow are swag. Dude, may be an actor but this whole musician side career has to be working out well. The point is that his self titled EP is dope as fuck and definitely deserves a download if you haven’t done so yet.

Eminem Releases EP Title

Leave a comment

Tonight, everyone’s favorite white narcissist rapper (The fact that he follows zero people on Twitter should be enough evidence), Eminem promised to release the name to his new EP via Twitter. A man of his word (?), Eminem is calling the new EP Hell: The Sequel. I’ve been off the Eminem bandwagon for awhile now, but this should be enought to hype the EP’s release, not that Em’s name recognition alone was enough.
