Maino feat. Snoop Dogg- “It’s On Tonite”

September 17th, 2010 No Comments

This reminds me of a drop it like it’s hot 2.0. I think the drums are a little too similar in parts. Good song but I’m also happy to throw this up because of the great hash tag #mainosgardenapartment. The hash tag started after the VMA’s when that whitest of all white boys Andrew Jenks […]

Kanye West – “Good Friday”

September 13th, 2010 No Comments

I would have put all the other people on this track in the title, but that would have been a tad too much for me. Song features verses from Common, Pusha from Clipse, Big Sean, Kid Cudi & Charlie Wilson. This is the kind of Kanye I’m a fan of, College Dropout/Graduation Kanye. Dropping a […]

Gucci Mane mixtape “Ferrari Music”

September 10th, 2010 No Comments

New Kings of Leon- “Radioactive”

September 9th, 2010 No Comments

Kings of Leon debuted their new single “Radioactive” yesterday, along with a music video for the single. Nothing like some good old southern-indie-arena-esque rock to take us into Friday. The boys have definitely figured out what sound makes them the most $$ and are sticking to it, fine by me as long as you guys keep putting […]

klaxons come back

September 8th, 2010 No Comments

It’s been 3 years since Klaxons took hold of the indie rave music scene and hey, copped a British Mercury Prize for their debut album Myths of the Near Future while they were at it (beating out Arctic Monkeys, Bat for Lashes and Amy Winehouse!), not too shabby. The band is now back with their […]
