Hard-Fi usher in a new Summer of Love?
On the non-hip hop tip for a quick minute:
After I trashed her a while back, here's an actually decent track by Lady Sovereign called "Gatheration." (via Catchdubs)
I didn't even know there was a new Zero 7 album out called The Garden. Anyone cop that? Dork mag has links to the video for the first single "Throw It All Away" here. I'm a big fan so this might be one of the few CD's I actually buy this year.
Also didn't know the second Futureheads album was a go. I liked the first one a lot but I'm not sure about this new one News And Tributes based on the mp3 I've heard even though I've seen it described as "Jam-tastic."
I might be f-cking with these kids Hard-Fi on some 2006 Happy Mondays ish based on their first single "Hard to Beat." I'm gonna wait until I hear the whole album before I pass final judgement one way or another though. Just like Shaun Ryder & co. did back in the day, they have club remixes for those who get down like that.
