new music

Newish music I’ve been enjoying the last few weeks:
DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, Product Placement (two hip-hop geniuses come together, Shadow from his solo work, Quannum, UNKLE, etc., Cut Chemist from Jurassic 5, Ozomatli, and others; not quite as brilliant as it should be, but would be top-notch if it were created by mere mortals)
The Avalanches, Since I Left You (best Australian dance record ever? unless the Kylie back catalog’s got an unexpected gem, yes. listen to the whole album online here)
Beulah, The Coast Is Never Clear (indie rock as updated ’60s orchestral pop; better than expected, particularly if you like a little horn in your rawk)

  1. I LOVE that Avalanches album! Great stuff. I’ll have to keep my eye out for that DJ Shadow/Cut Chemist album. They both need to come out with new solo albums too.

  2. Shadow’s new disc is coming out in May, allegedly. It’s about damned time; it’s been what, six years since is last legit solo project? And it should be about time for a new J5 record soon…

  3. Wow…I forgot Endtroducing was released in 1996. I had to go thumbing through my CD tower to find it and check the copyright myself just to make sure.
