weekly six pack vol 9


if you’ve been online this week, then you probably heard girl talk released his newest disc of mashups all day.  i’d argue it’s his best yet.  i’ve been hooked since the opening track “oh no” because of the ramones sample.

let me preface the second song on here by saying i’m not a big mix tape kind of guy, but j. cole is something special.  “villematic” is my favorite cut on friday night lights because he explains college in a way you can really understand:

to the college kids no scholarships starting your semesters / unpacking your suitcases filling up your dresser / enjoy it while you got it after that it’s god bless ya / life is your professor know that bitch is gonna test ya

the third song “old fashioned” is this week’s new favorite cee lo song.  dude can pretty much do anything he wants.  i’d throw him in the genius category.

the next three songs are all from springsteen’s new album the promise. they were recorded in between born to run and darkness at the edge of town. i was hesitant to buy this release because 2005’s born to run reissue just wasn’t that good.  the promise is more than i could have hoped for.  if you’re a fan, it’s a must have.  if you’re not, give a spin anyway.
