What with it most likely being a short week here at LET this week (gobble, gobble, kids), i decided that if i let last week’s Free Music Friday slip by, it probably would be at least another week before i got one done. Since nobody wanted that to happen, here we are with The Monday After the Fact Edition.
Validating our continuing love of all things Swedish, jj dropped a couple of freebie tracks last week, now with sample-y goodness from the xx and Akon!
With his ninth solo joint, The Apollo Kids, hitting shelves December 14, Ghostface Killah decides to show you what he’s got on the first single, “Together Baby.” With a soulful sample on the hook, GK continues to slaughter on this one.
Continuing their tradition of unearthing seldom heard gems, Light in the Attic knocks another one out of the park with Jim Sullivan’s U.F.O. Utilizing the legendary Wrecking Crew as his backing band, the artist is shrouded in mystery. For our purposes, though, the sumbitch could write a mean pysch-folk-rock tune, and that’s really all we care about here.
Katy Goodman must have decided two bands simply were not enough, with the Vivian Girls / All Saints Day member dropping a new one as La Sera. First single, “Never Come Around,” shares the same dream-pop vision as her trio, but without the wall of fuzz. Quite frankly, a welcome change of pace to my ears.
And to send you on your merry way, the Golden Filter remix of the Morning Benders’ “Excuses” (incidentally, my favorite track on their Big Echo). Now with more dance floor-y-ness!
