monday drive with brett. it rocked, it rolled, and then it hit the countryside.

A few words on some of the stuff I played today…

Firstly, Invincible; She’s an MC from Detroit and has a new record out called ‘Shapeshifters’ which is totally sweet. If radical-urban-postmodern-left-wing politics, catchy eclectic production and intelligent, witty, complex rhyming sounds like your idea of good hip-hop you owe it to yourself to give this a listen. The record is out on ’emergence media’, and you can check out her myspace here.

Secondly, Mazzy Star; ‘She Hangs Brightly’ came out in 1990, so it is by no stretch of the imagination a new record, but since I discovered it last year, I can’t seem to get enough. It falls somewhere in the sweet spot between shoegaze and country; like lying in bed with the curtains open on a clear night after knocking back a few of shots of cough syrup. Highly recommended. (The record that is. Drinking robotussin whilst gazing into the ether is to be done strictly at your own risk.)
