What's up, dudes. Like all of you, I haven't had the time or inclination to post recently, but yo, PLEASE GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER FOR A 2012 BEST OF POST. Here's where I'm at right now:
I'm feeling the new Soundgarden record. No shame in that. The track "Blood on the Valley Floor" is fucking bad ass. I'm feeling the new (?) Dirty Projectors joint "Swing Lo Magellan". There is this record by Howard Tate "Get it While You Can" on Spotify that is awesome and I've listened to it 1,000 times. Old soul, bluesy funky R&B tracks. Really good stuff. "Look At Granny Run" is the #1 hit. Manassas "Pieces" is a good LP of 60's/70's classic rock type stuff. It's a Stephen Stills side project, I think.
Karriem Riggins is a jazz drummer who also is a producer/beat maker. He has an LP out on Stones Throw that is very Dilla "Donuts-esque", definitely worth checking out.
Lastly, I just stumbled across a soundtrack on Spotify called "Cruise Across America" that has a bunch of tracks from low desert stoner rock types (Brant Bjork, Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man, etc.) It's a good collection of tunes. GET THOSE BEST OF 2012 POSTS TOGETHER Y'ALL! PRETTY PLEASE! dc
