Kendrick Lamar is not just hip hop anymore. After working with Imagon Dragons at the Grammy's he has teamed up with Tame Impala for a remix of "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards", but just titled "Backwards". It's set to appear on the soundtrack for the upcoming film "Divergent". Check it out below.
One of the perks of this job is getting new music early...sometimes MONTHS early. Last Oct or Nov, I don't really remember that far back, I got a burned CD in the mail from one of my record guy's with a sticky note on it that said "This is your new favorite band". In sharpie SKATERS "Manhattan" was written on it. So with a note like that how could I not check it out? Turns out he was right, I LOVE THIS ALBUM!!! It's really been in my car stereo since I got it. The album finally came out a week or so ago and I'm still not tired of it at all.
While I was cruising around the interwebs today I came across DIFFUSER.FM and a couple of videos of SKATERS performing. This is the first time I have seen them play at all. Based on this, it is now my goal to get them here this summer. Check it out.
