some new music I've been listening to

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Ffunny Ffrends: straight, heavy-handed backbeat with a creative, juicy hook and haunting vocals

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Bicycle: Another creative hook, nearly classical-inspired with an odd-meter feel and a straight rock beat underneath

Hooray For Earth - True Loves: ethereal, thoughtful, bassy and sophisticated white-man funk with cool sound and vocal effects and an actual melody

The Cool Kids - Penny Hardaway (feat. Ghostface Killah): new hip-hop with clean and fresh-sounding string samples, straight-up emceeing with former Wu-Tang member Ghostface guesting on the mic

The Cool Kids - A Little Bit Cooler: infectious, spacious, rocking, medium-tempo club banger with crisp and lighthearted emceeing on top

The Cool Kids - One Two: another medium-tempo banger with a verrry funky old-school synth bassline that needs to be heard more

Beastie Boys - OK: new Beastie Boys track from their new 2011 album, featuring a fresh and inventive synth hook, some terrific retro sound clips and the Beasties rapping like only they know how
