Zegut Music The "power jazz" trio reinvents Stravinsky's avant-garde classic in a wholly new way. And darn if it doesn't sound fresh! Love and Hate offers songs that are mature, but not aged, worldly, but not cynical, in a soundscape that flows with no forcing and no faltering. This merger of two industrial pioneers can be impressive, but never quite matches the original versions. this song is sick Posted in Bangin, Video by nick | Tags: 2014, Chance the Rapper, Hip-Hop, LIVE, Lollapalooza Chance the Rapper made a legendary return to his home city of Chicago after gaining a monstrous global following as he played a huge set at the trend setting Lollapalooza music festival.

Sputnikmusic - Your Music Reviews, News, and Discussion Once Upon A Time Zella Day’s Soundcloud biography insists on her American roots: raised in a small mountain town in the depths of Arizona, she grew up singing Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley covers in her family’s coffee shop. Strongly felt in the “Seven Nation Army” cover that first brought her to our attention, these influences are still there on “1965″ and yet make way for a pop twist as Zella Day’s captivating vocals expand to tell a beautiful, nostalgic tale.

By Eric SteuerPage 1 of 2 next » Aesop Rock: Labor Days: Pitchfork Review Aesop RockLabor Days [Def Jux; 2001] Rating: 8.7 Your humble reviewer is not hugely invested in the state or the fate of hip-hop. A lot of folks are, though, sometimes to an unfortunate extent-- hip-hop spends almost as much time drawing lines and fighting over its own image as the punk and hardcore zines do, albeit more entertainingly. One of the results of this is that a whole lot of hip-hop records are basically about hip-hop: the mainstream stuff (aka "real" hip-hop) offers up further meta-explorations of a few MC-persona archetypes, while the undie stuff (aka "real" hip-hop) dedicates itself to the Ancient Skillz of crate-digging, battle rhyming, and either picking on the mainstream or spitting abstract jumbles of wordplay. The former is how we get stuff like P. Diddy saying, "I don't write rhymes, I write checks"; the latter is how we get stuff like the Anti-Pop Consortium, who sound godlike in ten second snippets but prove mind-numbingly tedious by fifteen.
