Every Wednesday at 9:13 am, one of our most trusted music aficionados joins me (Cindy Howes) on the Morning Mix to play a couple favorite new songs and share some insight. Today we welcome Patrick Bowman!
In case you missed, it here's what Patrick played:
Little Scream, “Love as a Weapon” - Back in 2011, Laurel Sprengelmeyer released The Golden Record, her debut album as Little Scream, which drew comparisons to St. Vincent / Neko Case/ CHelsea wolf for really intense electric folk/ with gothy overtones. She’s back with a song/new direction/new label (Merge) on “Love as a weapon” a funky little pop song with Sprengelmeyer trying on a very vampy falsetto, and a generally very cool vibe.
Kendrick Lamar Feat. Cee-Lo Green, "untitled 06 | 06.30.2014" - King Kendrick surprised his fans with an album of eight unreleased tracks last Thursday night, titled untitled.unmastered. that for whatever reason didn’t make his generation defining, shoulda-been-album-of-the-year To Pimp a Butterfly. "untitled 6 I 06.30.2014" is another trip down the acid funk rabbit hole, sharing extremely similar creative real estate with the bulk of TPAB, but still capable of surprising. Kendrick is in the zone right now, and it seems like anything he touches is worthy of thorough analysis and celebration.
