Songs Of Summer 2009
The recession hasn't just affected our wallets. The music landscape's been pretty barren in 2009, but on the bright side we still have a little less than half the year to make up for it...
Here are some songs heating up the summer so far:
"Stillness Is The Move"
Artist: The Dirty Projectors
Album: Bitte Orca
"Kinda Like A Big Deal"
Artist: Clipse featuring Kanye West
Album: Til The Casket Drops
Clipse feat. Kanye West - Kinda Like A Big Deal
Artist: Grizzly Bear
Some GREAT footage of their performance in SF. The track finds a new center in rhythm.
Artist: Passion Pit
It was a great pleasure hanging out with these guys in Berkeley my last semester of college. I saw them rock San Francisco's Mezzanine the night after.
Artist: Pearl Jam
"Best I Ever Had"
Drake - "Best I Ever Had" (EXPLICIT)
Terrible raunchy lyrics but killer delivery from the beat to the schizophrenic vocals.
And for anyone looking for a solid, cheap yet filling taco joint check out Casita Taco al Carbon on Cahuenga in Studio City (so glad I live down the street!). My only caveat is that they close at 8PM so unfortunately no late night runs.
