Name a Band / Song We Should Know About

The song that really got me interested in Local Natives was When Am I Gonna Lose You and I binge listened to them after that

New Aesop Rock single is good. Nice to see something new that isn’t a collab.

First check out the remix

Then listen to the original

dope drumming

FWIW, profits for this single are going towards medical expenses for the family of a local Portland artist, Kurt Hayashi, who was one of Aes’ closest friends and who recently died after a protracted hospital stay following a stroke.

John Moreland has a new album out now, called LP 5. Between the name and the cover, I think it's fair to say he's going for something of a minimalist theme, but musically it's probably his most complex album. This is likely due to him working with a producer instead of doing it all himself.

I’ve been a fan for a long time. He references Totoro and Cat Bus in this track!! I guess he knows his audience.

Is there any significant connection between A$AP Rocky and Aesop Rock, or did that kid just bite Aesop’s name? They sound nothing alike.

It’s just a coincidence. Aesop Rock’s been releasing albums since ASAP Rocky was a kid, but Aes is still somewhat an obscure figure and I doubt Rocky had even heard of him when picking his stage name.

There is this, though:

Also, Aesop Rock did all the illustration for his music video. He’s one of those people so artistically talented it’s almost offensive.

Was watching Black Lightning and this song was playing, Come Down by Anderson Paak. First time I heard of him.

This is the song that made me a .Paak fan

Of course this is my anthem though...

And this one’s pretty incredible...

This one is for the Mighty Boosh fans.

I don’t normally go for “mainstream” pop, but this song in particular has laid eggs in my brain:

My friend is on Spotify.

Another one of his bands here.

... gone too soon.
