Wilco, Blink 182 and 9th Wonder are at it again this week
Hello everybody. September 23, marked the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. As you’re sitting outside the yard, watching the foliage change colors, take a listen to what’s below. Thank me later.
Wilco – “The Whole Love” [dBpm/ANTI]
If you’re like me and live in Chicago, chances are you’ve seen a billboard promoting this band. Wilco is, aside from Smashing Pumpkins, a band that Chicago is pleased to call its native son. With “The Whole Love,” Wilco will give audiences their blend of rich lyricisms and musicianship.
Blink 182 – “Neighborhoods” [Blink Recordz]
Well, after a two-year delay, the pop-punk trio has come back with the first release since their reunion in 2009. As with their previous self-titled album, the group continues their exploration into darker material, though they’re maintaining their pop sensibility.
9th Wonder – ”The Wonder Years” [It’s a Wonderful World Music Group]
He made beats for Jay-Z, R. Kelly, M.U.R.S. and Erykah Badu. He was the member of the grossly underrated Little Brother. Now 9th Wonder’s on his own, making his debut album with the likes of Badu, Masta Killa and
a whole mess of guess spots that can occupy an award show. Just check out the track “Make it Big.”
Madlib – ”Medicine Show No. 12: Raw Medicine – Madlib Remixes” [Madlib Invazion]
So we’ve come to the twelfth entry of Madlib’s ”Medicine Show.” This time, Madlib has gone back to basics: a mixtape of remixes. Simple. That’s it. But it doesn’t mean his skimping on the creativity, oh no! The Beat Konducta has a couple of tricks up his sleeves.
