The Roots, "Make My"

Geez, it's been more than a decade since undun was released. Every now and again, I go look up a band that pops up on here and discover that there are albums they've released that I was unaware of. Always a treat! But alas, I was unable to manifest any new Roots records I didn't already have. I'm sorry I failed you all.

Big Boi, "Apple of My Eye"

Oh, and I am aware of ...And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, I just realzed that that might not be clear.

Meanwhile, not a great chorus on this tune. Honestly, it kind of doesn't hang together at all. Well, the horns in the last third are fun.

Abyssal, "Forebode"

Foreboding indeed.

Krallice, "The Wheel"

I try not to descend to onomatopoeia very often around here. I think it's a bit of a lazy reaction, so...well, honestly, I don't know why I don't. Lazy is one of our watchwords! Interesting to discover one of my lines in real time here.

Anyway, I just wanted to point that out before I present my reaction here to this song: WHEEEEEEEEEEE!

Orquesta Akokán, "Mambo Rapidito"

I already had a grin pasted on my face, and then we get this? An absolute delight, sometimes this whole random shit really rocks.
