Schoolboy Q, "What's the Word?"

This shit goes harder than a convict on a conjugal visit.

McKenzie Eddy, "Bees"

Potentially known from the recent Hip-Hop & Love tour with Murs and Tabi Bonney, the platinum songstress and president of Bluroc records (helped A&R the fantastic Blakroc album) laces some light-hearted guitar melodies with some beautifully quirky lyrics.  Her Young Platinum is available for free download.

Nomination #4 for Album Cover of the Year

Florence & The Machine cover Drake's "Take Care"

Two Florence & The Machine posts in one week?  When they're killin' it like this... absolutely.  On BBC 1's Live Lounge Special they tackle a Jamie xx-produced title track off of Drake's surprisingly excellent sophomore album, Take Care.

Having trouble partying...?

... let me help you with that.  Bangarang!

What's better than Thanksgiving dinner...?

... a good hip-hop show.  Join myself, Wide Eyes, Haphduzn, Mavin MC and more this Thursday at the Nomad.  Get there early... free PBR before 10:00.  Whaaaaaa!!!!?

The Jezabels, "Easy To Love"

This girl, er, band was in Minnehappiness Friday night at the 7th Street Entry and quickly made me a fan. They brought incredibly tight musicianship across the board all the way from Sydney.  The icing on the cake is that Hayley Mary is incredibly sexy and can sing her ass off.

DJ Revolution, "The Cut"

Beat Box Set from The Cut on Vimeo.

DJ Revolution gets down with The Bridge (Serato integrated with Ableton) to present another tasteful orchestration of turntablism and musicology.

Nitty Scott MC, "Tell Somebody"

"Tell Somebody", off of my favorite female emcee's latest mixtape, Doobies and Popsicle Sticks, gets some visuals with Washington Square as a main backdrop.
