Songs from Louie’s Season 1 Finale

Let's find this shit!

I first caught Louis C.K. on his HBO show, Lucky Louie, when it debuted back in ’06. It wasn’t my favorite show to hit HBO, but the two main characters, Louie C.K. & Pamela Adlon (now on Californication), made a good match. The show was canceled after its first season, but was picked up by FX last year.

The show was revamped for FX, straying away from the sitcom (thank god) and going for a more realistic look at the sarcastic downfalls of a comedian – not far off from Curb. The backstory also changed with Louie as a newly divorced father of two young girls.

The first season’s finale wrapped up in September and caught my attention for this article, not just for the story, but more for the music that accompanied it. Two songs feature that caught my attention […]

Times Like These Acoustic by Foo Fighters

In need of an acoustic timeout.

I’ve been in need of a break from all the electronic I’ve been posting lately. So I thought a classic gone acoustic would do it right.

Foo Fighters’ acoustic version of “Times Like These”, at first, reminded me of Eddie Vedder’s Into the Wild soundtrack – the acoustic guitar reminds me of scenes of the wild now. But after the first few seconds Dave Grohl takes over with that soothing voice of his.

I’ve never been much of a Foo Fighters fan, or Nirvana for that matter (Pearl Jam fan), but this acoustic version […]

Melvin by Funkanomics (feat. Timbaland)

Who can get it crunk like me, Timbaland?

At the school of Funkanomics, Timbaland is head of the GhettoFunk department. (eh, I tried)

From the first beat, Funkanomics’ “Melvin” fulfilled my funkelic needs. But when Timbaland dropped in, he took the track to a whole new level. Timba needs to lean on funk a little more, beatwise, hopefully this will open up his ears to it.

The Time (Zedd Remix) – The Black Eyed Peas

Move over Pop, it's Remix time.

I’m not the biggest pop fan, but I do love me some pop remixes – Zedd’s remix of “The Time” being my latest obsession.

The intro & outro don’t seem finished yet, but everything in-between is party bona fide. Will.i.am is one hell of a producer, but Zedd out gamed him on this one.

Look out for more pop remixes in the works… can’t wait to post ‘em! can you (Timbaland’s most likely up next)

Peg Leg by Hooky

A Dubstep Before Christmas

Once I heard Hooky’s remix of “Make You Pop” (originally by Diplo), I knew I’d hear more from this guy. Coming across his SoundCloud page, I found a perfect beat that hit the dubspot.

“Peg Leg” is exactly why I would consider dubstep the Devil’s music (in a good way), well, if he existed. Enjoy this nightmare before the Christmas season overtakes our playing habits.

Mike Posner vs Deadmau5

Please Don't Go (DOSVEC Mashup)

This beat was made for Posner’s “Please Don’t Go”. Fuck the original, this one vibes much harder.

There is, however, one thing a little off in the song -at around 3:40 & 6:20 a subtle ring tone sound seems out of place. I asked DOSVEC about it and he told me it wasn’t anything added by him. I checked Deadmau5’s original and it doesn’t seem to be in there either. It does, however, sound like an instrumental coming from Posner’s original, but I’m still not sure.

Other than that slight nuance, it’s a damn chill tune to tune out to.

Lollipop That Juicy Pussy (Lil’ Wayne Rock Cover)

by Framing Hanley - Shorty wanna thug?

I first caught this a year back on The Current. It may be a couple years old, but it’s one of the most well done rock renditions of a hip-hop song.

I’m not one for post-grunge rock or Lil Wayne, for that matter, but Framing Hanley takes Lil Weezy’s original and turns it into a alt rock treat. I will say, however, the extensive amount of covers, remixes and mashups that artists have been doing with Lil Wayne’s originals have been putting his music in a better light.

If you’ve got any good hip-hop to rock covers, post ‘em up!

Flying Overseas by Theophilus London

featuring Devonté Hynes & Solange Knowles

I thought Beyonce had a beautiful voice; but after hearing Solange on this track, I think I’m changing my focus. This beautiful backup makes the song.

“Flying Overseas” is about a Brooklyne native dreaming of traveling the world with a loved one. A fantasy we’ve all had, done well.

Meditate on this mental trip.

Cymarshall Law and Skit Slam are Everliven Sound

Brother MCs drop their second album together, Freedom II

Cymarshall Law and Skit Slam are brothers (in the literal sense I’m pretty sure) born in the UK to Jamaican parents, and who spent their teenage years in New Jersey. They’ve both managed to go on to become fantastic underground MCs, and go by the name Everliven Sound when they team up. Their second album, Freedom II, dropped back in June, and has become an obsession of mine since I found it a few weeks ago.

To begin with, the two of them are phenomenally talented MCs on their own, and they work together extremely well, something many siblings can only […]

Wildstyle by Bassnectar

"Can't walk in these shoes cause my Vans is smoldering."

Bassnectar’s Wildstyle EP is jammed with dubstep goodness. A few tracks kill when it comes to the dubstep drop, mainly “Wildstyle Method” & “Underwater”, but one tops ‘em all.

“Hot Right Now” made use of some damn fine MCing, one of which is Zumbi of Zion I (who I think sounds like Tech N9ne). The Hip-Hop/Dubstep fusion is starting to make waves, which I expect to swell very soon.

Get it while it’s hot
