A lame attempt to reorganize my records this past weekend quickly devolved into an extended session of listening to forgotten gems hidden in my vinyl stash. One of my favorite De La Soul cuts, “Sh.Fe.MCs” was released on the rare promo-only Clear Lake Audiotorium EP in 1994.
DJ D-Mac is returning to the Den of Thieves this Saturday night with Eric Hilton. Gonna dust off the funky 45 box and spin some real vinyl!
You know that Weeknd song with the really catchy hook that came out last year? They sampled “Precious Little Diamond” by Fox the Fox.
On a holiday from Sunday to Sunday. Leaving you with a dope jam by native Hawaiian jazz singer Nohelani Cypriano.
I’m not from Chicago, but that doesn’t stop me from loving this 1982 Chi City theme song from the Light Touch Band and the 2013 rework from DJ KON.
The Pastels are a long-standing indie pop band from Glasgow that has a special place in this nerd’s heart. Their wonderful album, Slow Summits, came out earlier this year on Domino Recordings.
The United Four were Weldon Arthur McDougall’s group, formed for the purpose of recording on his Philly-based record label, Harthon Records. Check out my favorite ballad cut by the band!
Heat alert! The 12″ is in the mail, but I can’t stop listening to this Seven Davis Jr. tune online.
“Walk Out To Winter” by Aztec Camera is a wonderfully jangly song that pops in my head around this time every winter.
