Check it, we just got the link to The Cool Kid’s ‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’. So far after listening to about half the album, ‘Penny Hardaway’ is still my favorite. None of the tracks really compare to some of their older classics ‘A Little Bit Cooler’, but it may grow on me over time, I dunno. They all have potential, I mean, no doubt The Cool Kids have created a unique and awesome sound. Plus ‘Sour Apples’ is probably the best hip-hop song Travis Barker has ever done. Despite what he thinks, for the most part besides that song and the Transplants, his rap shit isn’t that great.
‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’ has some great party potential, it doesn’t really challenge you to think, but then again that was never really what The Cool Kids were about, they were about being cool, and they achieve it time after time, they remain some of the coolest in the game. The epitome of the name of a group describing their sound.
Check The Cool Kid’s new song, ‘Penny Hardaway’ off their up and coming release ‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’. This shit goes hard, and a feature from Ghostface Killah doesn’t hurt.
As springtime itches increasingly closer, I’m dying for some upcoming release dates. I’ve been listening to the Cool Kids obsessively, in anticipation of their upcoming release, When Fish Ride Bicycles. Especially after hearing Bundle Up, I’m ready for the next release.
In the meantime though, the Tacklebox mixtape is working pretty well for me. The three song combination of Freak City, So Neat, and Go Camping towards the beginning of the mixtape is amazing. The three tracks flow into each other perfectly and are flawless.
You can download Tacklebox here on Datpiff, or you can just wait for When Fish Ride Bicycles.
Freak City – the Cool Kids
So Neat – the Cool Kids
Gone Camping – the Cool Kids
First up, the new Cool Kids single. The provide the same bass heavy, booming and smooth style that can inevitably be described as nothing else but, cool. This track is gonna generate some heat for their springtime release, “When Fish Ride Bicycles”. Check the dopeness.
Check out this song from the Black Angels. They’re a blues-psychedelic band from Austin, Texas. I had never heard of them until tonight, but they’re great. “Bad Vibrations” begins with a three minute long, bluesy, soundtrack tinged drone before screaming into a high tempo guitar assault for the last minute.
Adele’s soulful, thick bluesy voice is impossible to refuse. Her cover of the Stroke’s “Last Night” has been receiving some attention, and while her lad back vocals doesn’t force over the guitar as powerfully as Julian Casablancas’ croons, this cover is still worth a listen, as its still easy to fall for her velvety voice.
Just because I know Courtney hates She & Him, here’s M. Ward’s Rave on featuring Zooey Deschanel.
Slum Village is a Detroit rap group featuring legendary producer J Dilla, as well as Baatin and T3. This is a dirty remix featuring Slum Village raping over Daft Punk’s “Aerodynamic”.
Gil Scott-Heron is a legend in music and poetry and a fundamentally important predecessor to rap, especially those rappers lyrically conscious of social plight. In 2010 he released his first album in 16 years, “I’m New Here”. The album was a huge departure from his sound, but still received positive reviews. Several days ago he released a collaboration with Jamie XX, a remix album of “I’m New Here” entitled, “We’re New Here”. The mix for “New York is Killing Me” is definitely worth a listen.
