Last Week in Music | 11/11 – 11/18

Last Week in Music, I had a couple of new things pop up on my list. Buillion, was number one, who I think might be trying to paint himself as the next Dangermouse. What he did, was combine the beats of J Dilla, with the best album ever written, Pet Sounds, and called it ‘Pet Sounds: In the Key of Dee’. What you get is something pretty close to amazing. Hearing the chopped up beats of Dilla mixed with the beautiful vocals of The Beach Boys is pretty damn awesome. What’s also really cool, is that the album is free to download, just click on the title of the album up there.

Then there was Coconut Records, who I keep saying I’m going to post about, but so far I haven’t. Hopefully I’ll get to it this week, since I have so much free time. Such a great album.

After that was Jana Hunter, who I wasn’t so sure about at first, but now I’m really starting to enjoy her album. It’s really folk-y, but I’m really enjoying a lot of the instrumental stuff. It’s definitely growing on me.

I also just got the new Bishop Allen album, Bishop Allen & The Broken String, which I’m reading on Wikipedia that it came out on July 24th. How in the hell did I miss this? Anyhow, it’s their second full length album, consisting mostly of songs from their EP’s they made last year, but remastered and made new-ish. The album is pretty good overall, though I feel like it could have been a lot stronger.
