1. Jazmine Sullivan (really) feat. & produced by Waajeed (!!), "Jumpoff."
The sun comes up in the morning, I like puns, the Lakers are terrific, Red Stripe is good, and married dudes love me. After spending approx. 12.7 seconds on this here web log that chronicles all aspects of my nerdery I'm not sure how a man could take a look at me and think Yessss, she would like to have intercourse with me repeatedly on Tuesdays and Thursdays when the wife and kids are at soccer practice, but it's more comical than upsetting, really.
Luckily, beautiful horn stabs and drums of unparalleled syncopation will always provide a message of hope and happiness in one's time of confusion. Big and and girly and shiny and 1966-ish, this makes me miss Rich Harrison a little less. Waajeed produced this for Jazmine’s debut album but it didn't make the final cut because record label people in charge of decision-making often make mistakes.
OH Detroit, I love you and I'm nothing without you.
I never ever ever would've posted this in the days prior to about 2004. I was a music snob back then and a realllll pain in the ass, believe me. I'm so much more fun now. (just ask a married dude!). Also, I forgot to mention that you might have to have lady parts in order to enjoy this.
Completely unrelated except that they are gorgeous too:
2. "Revenge" feat. Wayne Coyne(!), from that little Danger Mouse/Sparklehorse industry imbroglio.
Apparently, all you have to do is write David Lynch a letter and he'll provide the photographic interpretations for your music.
3. AA Bondy, "There's a Reason."
4. AZ, "Good For Nothin."
Oooh, somebody's got daddy issues!
I need the instro sometime last week, please and thank you.
5. The Temper Trap, "Sweet Disposition," this week's running-through-the-fields-in-a-sundress banger.
I don't need to remind you of the levels of intensely pleasurable music love heaped upon me by "My Girls" back in that episode from January, since you guys had to sit me down and have me breathe into a paper bag due to my enthusiasm level.
