Hip-Hop for the Whole Family

Apparently, Kanye and HALO have become standard fare amongst the grammar school set.  For many parents, this forces a musical Sophie’s choice: either let your young kids loose into a lyrical free-for-all, or censor them into corner of musical lameness.

Fortunately, this choice is unnecessary.  Just in time for my sister-in-law’s long car trip with her family, here’s a mini-mix tape that proves that cultural currency needn’t come with an R rating.

Interestingness for the Interim

Yo.  Wrist is put back together but still crazy hurts when I type, so I’ll stick to a quick highlight of three great new songs that I’m feeling and think you might too: one from a new genre, one a new cover of an old favorite, and a new alt-ish country crooner.

For the adventurous among you, a new *genre* has popped up recently: Moombahton.  It’s Dutch house music screwed down to sound like Reggaeton’s interesting little brother.  Check a bit here and below.

Metele Bellaco

Okay, admittedly that was a bit different.  For the not so out there of you out there, here’s an interestingly chillaxed Pumpkins cover by Passion Pit.

Tonight, Tonight (Smashing Pumpkins Cover), Passion Pit

And for those of you a bit adrift since Ryan Adams went off to marital bliss with Mandy Moore, here’s another Ryan whom we should at least give a listen.

Southside of Heaven, Ryan Bingham

Lots more to share, will see y’all again soon.
