The Age of Information

Might as well do the weekend in one go – all these were perfect for a sunny city morning, where I was on my way to the cricket:

DJ Quik and Kurupt (including 9x’s outta 10 twice in a row)

Katy B – On a Mission (LP)

Purling Hiss – Run From The City

Michael Hurley – I Paint A Design

Candi Staton – I’d Rather Be An Old Man’s Sweetheart (Than A Young Man’s Fool)

DJ Quik and Kurupt – Hey Playa! (Moroccan Blues)

Can – Future Days

Shade Sheist – Where I Wanna Be

Zac Brown Band – Toes

The next day, was going to see a friend in the countryside, and did a cd of non-spotify tracks I’ve been listening to and I thought he should hear as well. This obviously involved listening to the tracks and deciding which ones I wanted to put on the cd:

Ms. Dynamite Feat. Chink Santana – She Don’t Live Here Anymore

MellowHype – Fuck the Police (ft. Tyler, The Creator)

Waka Flocka Flame – Hard In Da Paint

Nicki Minaj – keys under palm trees

Lady Leshurr – Shurr

K. Michelle – Hit ‘Em In The Mouth

Swindle – No More (Feat. Nadia Suliman)

Devin the Dude – R & B

E-40 Feat. Clyde Carson & Husalah – Lightweight Jammin’

Waka Flocka Flame – Snake In The Grass Ft. Cartier

Tyler The Creator – Bastard

Christina Aguilera – Woohoo (feat. Nicki Minaj)

Frank Ocean – novacane

Ms. Dynamite Feat. Chink Santana – She Don’t Live Here Anymore

Big Boi, Khujo Goodie & T.I. – Tangerine

Nicki Minaj – Beam Me Up Scotty

Amerie – 1 Thing

8Ball & MJG – Armed Robbery

Gucci Mane – Vampires

Nicki Minaj – Itty Bitty Piggy

Nicki Minaj – Beam Me Up Scotty

Frank Ocean – strawberry swing

Lil B – The Age Of Information

CRU – Loungin’ Wit My Cru

A couple of these were on a mixtape from a tumblr.

While at friend’s aside from sitting around listening to music on his new system (Soul Syndicate, Katy B, Laura Marling, Prince Buster inter alia, iirc) we talked about how things like spotify and the internet have changed how we listen to music, and how it took a while to get used to the new tools of music discovery and find the blogs, forums and internet radio stations that allowed us to listen to as much music and enjoy it as much as we did when we were teenagers.
