- Here’s a track that stays on the right side of sweet without becoming too sickly. I’m not a fan of that spoken verse near the end however. It’s frighteningly close to rhyming ‘hands in the air’ with ‘just don’t care’.
Don’t let that put you off checking it out though.
'Doe Paoro - Walking Backwards'
- Bah! It’s Monday again. Lets soothe away that Monday funk with a calm piece of ear medicine from Doe Paoro.
'Big Ben & Kostia feat Néfer - Better Days'
- It's a Sunday, there's a rare bit sunshine happening outside, seems like a good time to post this mellow slice of funk. Taken from the excellently titled new album “Straight From Da Couch” by Big Ben & Kostia. featuring the great Soul singer
'RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL - My Number/Charlotte'
- An uptempo track for today I think. Here we have a cover by Rüfüs of two of their favourite tracks. Foals - My Number and Booka Shade - Charlotte. Both have been excellently stitched together. There’s a free download too!
Munkeycop’s Musical Nutsack 2014 - Feb by Musical Nutsack
In case you’ve missed it here is the playlist for February’s Musical Nutsack picks. It’s a selection combining hip-hop, rock, indie, pop, electronic stuff, some mellow bits and some other stuff in-between.
'Speak - Weiss + This Much I Know'
- It’s a slow build on this one but it’s totally worth sticking with. Once it kicks in it’s a feast of indie-based goodness.
'A$AP Rocky feat. Gesaffelstein - In Distress'
Over the last few days a number of tracks have popped up from the soundtrack to a new movie called Divergent.
The high calibre names used remind me somewhat of the recent Hunger Games soundtrack.
This track appears to be polarising listeners a bit. I’m guessing that some don’t like the fact that it never breaks out into a full-on hip-hop jam. I like it for that exact reason though. It’s like a brooding menace rather than an all out attack of rage. It’s kinda like ‘Soundtrack hip-hop’, is that an actual thing?
'Indiana - Solo Dancing (Joe Goddard Remix)'
- Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip) has already turned in some hugely respectful remixes. Here’s another one to chalk up on that list.
'Hong Hong Kong Kong - Heidi's Moon Stomp'
- This tune sounds like it’s been compressed to within an inch of it’s life. Technical studio musings aside there’s plenty to enjoy in this fun slice of electro-pop noodling.
'Danny Darko feat. Christen Kwame - Walk With Me (SBG Funked Out Mix)'
- So the other day a new follower popped up over at the Musical Nutsack Soundcloud account. I was intrigued by the username ‘SilverbakGorillzz’ and figured I’d check out the tunes on the account. It was there that I found this excellently funked up tune. The production here is great, the live drums and synth touches are particularly excellent.
