new tune monday
three albums of note were released today. i’m starting to like these monday releases. looks like kanye and jay-z started a new trend with watch the throne. who’s decision was it to release stuff on tuesdays anyway? monday makes a lot more sense. here’s what i’m downloading:
red hot chili peppers i’m with you. the red hot chili peppers are one of my all-time favorite bands, so any time they release a new album, i’m buyin’. i was worried they wouldn’t sound as good without guitarist john frusciante, but new axe-man josh klinghoffer
takes over admirably. initial reaction: better than 2006’s stadium arcadium.
lil wayne tha carter iv. this is one i’ve been excited about for a while. tha carter iii and da drought 3 were on constant rotation in my car in 2007/2008. i stayed away from last years rebirth – figuring rap rock should have died with limp bizkit – so i’m expecting big things from this release. besides the singles (“john”, “she will”, “6 foot 7 foot”, “how to love”), i haven’t heard anything else. i’ll let you know how it is, but if you’re a lil tunechi fan then you’ve probably already heard it, baby.
david guetta nothing but the beat. don’t judge. guetta is a guilty pleasure. i realize this is the a-hole responsible for “i’ve got a feeling” but don’t hold that against him. dude’s got talent. i’m loving the lead single “where them girls at” mainly because nicki minaj is a mutha-f**king monster. great running music.
