i’m still not 100 percent down for Aloe Blacc, but i will say this–when he gets a hold of a track, he really does knock it out of the park. i already dug “I Need a Dollar,” and this live version, apparently recorded at some dinner table whilst AB was shooting a short film in France, makes me dig it that much more.
Let the record show, i tried using the embed link sent to me by the PR flaks for Mount Kimbie, which, of course, didn’t work. Since it’s up at RCRD LBL now, i’m considering it open to the world and am using their link instead. This track, recorded live at Berghain, Berlin, is being given away in anticipation of their upcoming EP, Blind Night Errand, due Nov. 29. If that’s half as good as Crooks & Lovers, well, i expect it to be one of the better CDs of the year. Some of the best chilled dubstep out there today, if you ask me.
