It Runs In The Family

New from Oh No, brother of Madlib, and son of Otis Jackson, here's 'Heavy'! Reminds me of Dilla's Donuts, so check this out if you liked that. It's beatastic!

Spiritus Sanctus In Nomine

This track blew me away the first time I heard it. It's remarkably odd for an album that achieved such mainstream success.

Sometimes It Snows In April

Indeed, it does. Welcome to my new blog, Sometimes It Snows In April. This isn't my first attempt at blogging, but hopefully this will go better (i.e. a little less insane) than my last blog. I made the mistake of rambling last time, but I won't make that same mistake here. So, here's one of the standout tracks from Sunset Rubdowns stellar Random Spirit Lover, 'Colt Stands Up, Grows Horns'. The very creepy piano(?) at the end is brilliant.
