Friday Music Day: July 1, 2011

I was going to finalize my summer mix, and share it with all y'all, but I ran out of time.
I might have something here after a while. Watch this space, it may be coming. Or maybe later this weekend.

To bide time, please share with us ten or so of your finest random tracks.

    Lupe Fiasco - "Solar Midnight" New Moon Soundtrack

    Lupe Fiasco - "Angels Remix" Enemy of the State mixtape
    WuTang vs. The Beatles - "The Movement" Enter the Magical Mystery Chambers
    Kings of Leon - "Cold Desert" Only By The Night
    Wilco - "Muzzle of Bees" A Ghost is Born

    1. I'm warming up to Lasers a little. The first couple of listens were pretty grim. It's not nearly as good as Lupe's first two, but there's plenty of things to like there.

      1. I have the same basic opinion on Lasers, re: being alright, but less than The Cool or Food & Liquor. I wonder how much of that is the fact the record company jerked the album around for 2 years and how much of it is Lupe's fault.

        1. I won't deny that a lot of it sounds phoned in. He's expressed displeasure with how the company treated it/him, but I'm sure there's plenty of blame to go around.

          I think the dude needs to make a couple of mixtapes and just kind of figure things out. Enemy of the State is twice the album that Lasers is, and it's not really even an album.

          1. Enemy of the State is very good. I've been meaning to track down his Fahrenheit 1/15 three part mixtape. I know it's out there and easy to get a hold of, but I never think to do it when I'm at home. Hopefully I'll see this discussion after work and finally do it.

  8. It was up in the air whether we'd be travelling to the in-laws' this weekend. FiL had shoulder surgery (bone spurs) about ten days ago and was in some pain this week. But now things look better.

    I'll have my random ten and my much-awaited* Summer mix in the PM.

    *I'm delusional.

    * One half of the F*** Buttons. I think I mentioned him before, but I'd only heard 2 or 3 of his songs at that point. Now that I've heard the whole thing, I like it even more.

  12. The 80-35 Music Festival is this weekend. Here's the lineup. There's not really anyone that screams to me "I MUST SEE THEM!!!1!" especially not in this heat (I really should have gone last year).
