DECEMBERISTS RARITIES AND LIVE CUTS

I’m not the biggest Decemberists fan in the world, I admit, but I can appreciate the band nevertheless. So here’s a few cuts I’ve been waiting to share with y’all. There will be a few more tomorrow, when I post the biggest cover post in the history of the internet. Believe that.

THE BUDOS BAND-The Budos Band II

The Daptone label is known for modern/vintage soul music, so it’s no surprise that Staten Island’s Budos Band has found a home there. Part Booker T and the MGs, part JBs, this collection of throwback psychedelic funk instrumentals is a fine diversion for a BBQ or a dimly light smoking party. It should be listened to while wearing a brown leather jacket. An incredibly tight afrobeat rhythm section pulses with a salsa beat behind grooving horns and fantastic, cinematic riffs and hooks. They don’t make music like this anymore, and when you hear this, you’ll wonder why.

It screams to be sampled by Ghostface. Buy it before the summer is over.

PICTURE OF THE DAY & QUOTE OF THE DAY

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“I don’t know much — or anything really — about classical music — unfortunately — and I had to learn in six months to play Beethoven and Mozart. It was so hard, I practiced for hours.”

- Jessica Alba, on getting ready to play a blind violinist in a film called, “The Eye.”

Post Script:
