Singles file: MED f. Aloe Blacc, Tim McGraw, Tape Deck Mountain
A weekly playlist for the listener with a one-track mind...
MED featuring Aloe Blacc: "Where I'm From"
Southern Cal MC Medaphoar enlists Southern Cal soul singer Blacc for this blazing West Coast anthem.
Tim McGraw: "Felt Good on My Lips"
Country's most underrated superstar tries to revive the concert video (lots of running! And super-dramatic crane shots! And people doing the wave!) in this clip for his fine new single.
Tape Deck Mountain: "P.I."
The San Diego-based pop-Goth band's latest is a dark and fuzzy mid-fi gem about a particularly creepy private investigator.
TV Girl: "On Land"
San Diego mid-fi happiness, Part 2: If you're wondering what it would sound like if Wavves traveled back in time to 2002 and collaborated with a more benevolent version of the Strokes, here's your answer.
Kanye West: "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" samples
Thanks to this assemblage of all the samples used on Ye's new disc, the year's best album becomes the morning's best time-waster. Between this and the appearance on Girl Talk's latest, Black Sabbath is having a pretty good week.
