Educated Consumers – “Get Your Log On” [rap/hip-hop]

March 25, 2012

Back in high-school a buddy of mine solidified my love for rap and hip-hop when he introduced me to the independent artist Dood Computer.  I copped his album entitled Ridiculous and that was the last thing I heard of him [peep my favorite track off that album here.]  For a while, I thought he forgot the message of that album and picked up a career sellin’ car insurance somewhere in NYC.

It seems, however, that Dood ain’t dead after all.  He has recently hooked up with the Educated Consumers on their album Winning Winter to deliver a topical message that I’m sure you’re all too familiar with. #digitalpound

“It’s all in the wrist, we’re developing relationships that don’t exist.  Go and get your log on.”

Chiddy Bang ft. Cocorosie – “By Your Side”

February 15, 2012

While Chiddy Bang has undoubtedly failed to maintain the energy they brought with them since hitting the scene in 2009, it’s hard to deny that their approach to hip hop has been anything but innovative.  Since building a name for themselves with Opposite of Adults, a fusion of MGMT’s alternative sound blended with the hip-hop production of Bang’s very own Xaphoon Jones, Chiddy Bang has made a surprising comeback with a more developed sound after a few years underground.

Chiddy’s latest release entitled By Your Side, brings together the exoticism of Cocorosie with a traditional hip-hop feel which leaves the listener with an unfamiliar sense of  wholesomenesswhen the song is over.  Although Coco’s cryptic voice may not initially resonate well with you, the peculiar beauty packed within her hook will grow on you.
