MP3: billy woods - "Blue Dream" Ft. L'Wren


From Audible Treats:

MP3: billy woods - "Blue Dream" Ft. L'Wren

A few weeks back, billy woods celebrated the release of his latest album, History Will Absolve Me. As his first solo release in eight years, HWAM is an unapologetically dark and dense project, a collection of woods' most personal work to date that he refers to as "wholly uncompromising." And while most rappers shy away from bearing their soul, History Will Absolve Me shows that it's at woods' rawest when he's best.

"Blue Dream," the album's latest single, and the first since the release of his "Duck Hunt" video, is a perfect example of that. The song was premiered today by My Old Kentucky Blog, which hailed the track as a "claustrophobic gutcheck," an apt description for a song that, according to woods, was inspired by "the end of a long relationship, the movie Blue Valentine, and this period I went through where I seriously contemplated whether I wanted to quit smoking weed."

The beat, produced by Man Mantis, sets the mood with a hypnotic sample and reverb-heavy drums, aided along by singer L'Wren's haunting vocals on the song's chorus. woods, pulling from the concept of Blue Valentine, gives his take on a relationship, focusing only on the relationship's beginning and end. But even as things start smoothly, woods hints at issues, rapping, "I'm hoping you don't ask the wrong questions/ I really don't wanna start lying." The song takes a firm turn towards the darkness in the second verse, as woods raps, "So much unsaid/ We only keep it real when we're joking... Somewhere along the line/ We stopped trying and started going through the motions."

MP3: @SardarsLife - "Party Life"


From Nancy B:

MP3: Sardars - "Party Life"

Once upon a time, gentle readers, there lived a music artist named Sardar. Sardar was a poet at heart. Problem was, his music mostly reflected the very things he was determined to turn his back on; drug dealing, gang banging, the usual trappings of growing up in the mean streets of Los Angeles from whence he hailed. Sardar sought growth but needed direction. One fine day in the fall of 2011, Sardar found himself in the studio with industry veteran, Wendy Day, playing her some music he was working on. As Day listened to an early rendition of "Party Life", she realized that what sat before her was not in fact a gangster rapper, but a pop star. Her input caused Sardar to rethink his musical direction and take "Party Life" back to the drawing board. Thus, a (Pop) star was born.

The powers that be in radio loved "Party Life". So much in fact that it is spinning in wonderful far-off places like Las Vegas, Honolulu, Atlantic City and beyond. The type of places where Pop Stars and partying are a way of life. It spread to Chicago, Boston, Spokane, Corpus Christy and Albuquerque; the types of places where people wile away the hours at their 9-5 and imagine themselves enjoying the party life.
 
You, gentle readers, may download the single below, and enjoy a slice of the "Party Life" right there in your cubicle:
