Why is everybody a scumbag? I think it started with Bill Clinton, who lied under oath. If the President doesn’t care about the truth, why should I? But a good case can be made for going back to Reagan, who legitimized greed. The baby boomers went from love one another to screw one another over […] The post Sunday Thought appeared first on Lefsetz Letter.
Sounds like: Tycho, Jack Chosef Song: Noni Wo - How Can I Plz U What's so good? Let's take it down a notch or two with Noni Wo's downtempo electro pop single, "How Can I Plz U."

Andrew St. James’ The Shakes (self-titled) is music for those who like latter-day/the current phase of Flaming Lips, if Wayne Coyne was strictly acoustic. Some of it sounds like a wholesome country or Americana album where St. James’ stories are content enough to not only listen to, but remember and sing along to yourself. The […]
I made this one, like many others, when I wasn’t feeling quite right in the head. It’s getting really interesting to be able to look back at these and try and figure out where I was when I made the mix. I hope that you’re all enjoying these as much as I am. It’s sort [...]

Or, what happens when you don't let Letterman play your music.
Cups Glasses And Tanks (Aut) is a new collaboration between Nicola Guazzaloca, Pablo Montagne, and Giacomo Mongelli, with Guazzaloca playing jazz while Montagne and Mongelli performing in a number of different classical configurations. The album is very much on the avant-garde side and while there are jazz central points, at the moments one would think […]
There was a comment saxophonist Anthony Braxton said in an interview that I felt was very interesting. I’m paraphrasing here, but he said something to the effect that just because he plays the saxophone doesn’t mean he plays or has to play jazz all the time. The instrument is held solid with jazz, even though […]

If you have never heard 7evenThirty yet and you consider yourself a hip-hop fan, what’s slowing you down?
