Rdio Roundabout

Rdio Roundabout 4

Okay guys, I know this is a day late, and that’s totally my fault. Last week Nate wasn’t prepared and this week it’s me. It’s an abusive relationship, but now that we’ve acknowledged that, we’re on the road to redemption. We’re gonna bring you our selection of super awesome songs from the past two weeks on Rdio. Let’s go!

Nate’s Picks

Cancer 4 Cure by El-P
Cancer 4 Cure by El-P

Sorry about last Roundabout folks! I was out of town moving my sister back from grad school. But hey, I’m back and have some good stuff for you this week. Let’s get to it. First up is Cancer 4 Cure from El-P. This is some funky rap/rock/electric/I don’t even know stuff that’s just excellent. Definitely check this out.

Animal Furnace by Hannibal Buress
Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace

Next up is Hannibal Buress: Animal Furnace. You may say “THIS ISN’T MUSIC, NATE.” and I know this. But what it is, is quite possibly my favorite stand-up act of the last couple of years. Buress is absolutely hilarious. Think Mitch Hedberg, but African-American and with a little more substantive content. You’ll be in tears. For a little bonus, check out this episode of The Champs podcast with Hannibal as a guest. It’s great.

Jake’s Picks

Not Your Kind of People by Garbage
Not Your Kind of People by Garbage

I believe this album got a good bit of press just before its release, but I’ve got the memory retention of a half-filled water balloon (that’s not very good). But I liked this album from the get-go. It’s a kind of crunchy electro indie rock. Yeah, I totally made that up, but let’s go with it. It’s got a female lead vocalist, and she carries out her duties masterfully. Give the jam a listen.

Vol. 1 by Young Man
Vol. 1 by Young Man

This is a more chill album. I imagine you lovely people playing this on your hi-fi on saturday morning while you sit on your sofa eating a bowl of Fruit Loops. It’s not “chillwave” by a long shot, but it has a kind of serenity to it with the vocals giving it a nice glazed finish. Sip it up.

Bonus Album!

I felt really bad about being a day late so here’s another album for you guys.

Long Lines by Nitemoves
Long Lines by Nitemoves

This album is a super synthetic systematic electronic jam with wicked rhythms. You can lay this record on and zone out while doing something artistic and feel like you’ve really accomplished something when, in reality, you created a piece of macaroni art that won’t even make it to the refrigerator. That’s not to say that this isn’t a good album, it’s great; I’m just saying that macaroni art sucks and everyone knows it. Go ahead and put this record on your turntable.
