more new music. here's the opening track to another impressive debut.
special thanks to rhu_ru for another great guest DJ week.
the critics are going nuts over this album (and i noticed a few citizens were fans of mr. ocean previously), and after listening channel orange all weekend, i can see why.
i don't think this is properly representative of his talents, but it's the best live clip out there for now.

Kill the feedback, Jerry.
i'm really disappointed that i've never heard anything from this young lady before.
The NBA All-Star weekend is my favorite of all major sport exhibition weekends.

back when the hitman played this a few months back, these guys were a little band called "the shakes" that you'd probably never heard of. so much so that there was almost no decent live material to be found. now, it seems these guys are starting to blow up a bit. here's a vid that i'm sure he would have played instead if he'd had access to it.
if you haven't check out these guys already (and i know several citizens are already on the bandwagon), get you some hipster cred while you can.
(oh yeah, and the new album is coming out in april, you guys)
There is some awfully cool soul revival going on nowadays.
Trust me, if I could have found a live version of Otis doing his tune, I would have.
Then again, the Stones used to have some decent soul.
