Justice - 'Civilization'

justice-civilization

A new track by French electro duo Justice has been released onto the internet. It was ripped from an upcoming Adidas commercial, which is why there are a few odd sound effects thrown in there. “Civilization” is the first single off of Justice’s upcoming sophomore album.

After listening to this track, I’m convinced that Justice is back and better than ever. Can’t wait for the release of the album.

The Talented and Lovely Finley Knight, a New Jam Band for The Weary-Eared Music Lover

I’ve learned something very valuable in college, and that’s to hold basement parties dear to your heart.

There’s going to be a juncture in all of our lives where we can’t attend them anymore. So enjoy the grungy keg rooms, the mysterious ducks into a dark space with your closest friends, and the sloppy exits with a new friend.

The last basement party I went to brought me new friends in a less Biblical sense.

Finley Knight is the best new friend your ears can have. For all of us crazies dancing around, Finley Knight also did our bodies some good, too. We grooved with plastered-on smiles, stripping some layers so our sweaty bodies could keep moving with the music. My good friend P. Mac near died and rose to heaven when they played his requests for Grateful Dead’s “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire on the Mountain.” The songs suited the band well, a band that’s sort of like the bastard child of all rock, funk, and jam genres. Finley Knight shows us that being genre-ambiguous is sometimes a beautiful, beautiful thing.

Childish-Gambino Donald Glover EP

Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, released a 5 track untitled EP this week. Although he’s probably best known as Troy Barnes on NBC’s Community, he’s got a burgeoning rap career and appears to be following in the footsteps of Drake. His straightforward flow is reminiscent of Chiddy Bang. Be sure to check out Freaks and Geeks and My Shine — they’re the two tracks that really showcase Childish Gambino’s raw talent.
