Music drop: Metric, Blame One, Doves, Benga and Camp Lo

yet another music drop.

Metric - Fantasies

Metric - Fantasies

Just came out on iTunes, so you know I had to cop.  Very, very good album.  It’s good to hear something from them again.  If you are a fan of Metric, you will definitely not be disappointed.  I think the physical CD release in April 7th or 14th, depending on where you are in the world, I think.  One of the better albums I’ve heard so far in ’09.

Camp Lo - Stone and Rob Caught On Tape

Camp Lo - Stone and Rob Caught On Tape

One of the most underrated duos, probably ever.  I think the complex similes and metaphors are part of the reason for their underrated-ness.  It’s like…they are too dope lyrically and swag-wise to not come out with an album, but I don’t think people know how to take them.   None the less, this is a pretty decent album – worth your time to investigate.

Doves - Kingdom of Rust EP

First of all, it’s Doves.  That’s it…..that’s all I really all I need to say.  Cop and enjoy, get prepped for the long play.

Blame One - Days Chasing Days

Blame One - Days Chasing Days

An interesting listen – good production from Black Milk and Exile, and some others – Blu’s on a track too.  It’s hit or miss, but mostly a hit.  Like you listen to “The Word to Say,” “Official WIth It” or “Wonder Why” and it’s like ‘dope’, then you get let down by “Blame Me” or “More Fiyah” – which actually has a dope beat, but the lyrics just seem “eh” and the vocals aren’t even up high enough on the track.  Even with it’s flaws, it’s worth of being checked into.

Album I Should’ve Had Up Before, But Somehow Forgot to Post:

Benga - Diary of an Afro Warrior

Benga - Diary of an Afro Warrior

For dubstep lovers – already a classic.  “26 Basslines” is really all you need to get you right.
