Listen here, son. If you aren’t spending your time listening to Bon Iver music, I don’t know what the fuck your problem is. For really real, G. It’s like having your homeboy say exactly what everyone wants to laugh at you about.
If you don’t listen to Bon Iver, you might enjoy the minstrel accoutrements of the Fleet Foxes. Those dudes go HAM, although I hear there might be problems with the drummer or some shit. You never get that with The Legendary Roots, but, hey! The Beatles had problems too, so at least I’m not recommending you listen to them, right?
However! Right now, I’m riding on a recommendation of my homeboy right now, and I have that new Jai Paul joint on blaaaast. You’d be surprised. I feel like by the year 2026 we might have a full compilation of that man’s incredible musical stylings, but until then, it’s sort of like Good Fridays, which seem to be on fire once again, except Good Summers. Very, very dope. Click the chick!
When electric music started coming out, I was never feeling it, and house music sucks, unless immediately followed by Hugh Laurie saying hilarious stuff, but right now, it’s a really good trend in music slowly emerging. When you get tracks like Monster ft Hov and Nicki Minaj and Officer Ricky, and Bon Iver, or Dreams Money Can Buy, sampling Jai Paul’s BTSTU, you can see where computer generated sounds can meet real vocals and instrumentation. It’s a thin line, but it’s a growing one. You could see Prince playing the purple Prince guitar on this Jasmine track, and sexy YeAngels dancing all crazy and slow motion. That’s not to say it’s Hip-Hop music, but my ear definitely don’t hate it! Shit ain’t Skrillex, that’s what I’m saying! This here is true electrofunk! This here is music you can kick back to a little bit and just vibe the fuck out (or, if you’re like me, you can also get up and groove like dust in a windstorm).
Thanks, Jai Paul!
