TRACKS OF THE WEEK 13/11/2016 - Lambchop, Kevin Morby, A Tribe Called Quest


A Tribe Called Quest - 'We The People' (2016)

A new release from A Tribe Called Quest is a big deal. A really big deal considering their last album, The Love Movement, was released 16 years ago. But also bittersweet too as this album is essentially a farewell and most definitely their last, following the untimely death of Phife Dawg earlier this year from complications relating to diabetes. It's all here however, all the ATCQ's trademarks which have made them Hip Hop royalty, big basslines, the beats, the clever samples and of course the clever & unique interplay between Phife and Q-Tip. Single, 'We The People', is also a track which is on the pulse, highlighting the fear and divisions in the US, especially poignant with everything that has happened following the presidential campaign and election. A timely comeback!

Kevin Morby - Beautiful Strangers (2016)

This Dylan-esq masterpiece by Kevin Morby has had me grooving like a serial killer in a Tarantino Movie (please say that you can imagine it!) which is a bit ironic because the song is actually a protest song, with all its proceeds being donated to Everytown for Gun Safety. I'm an idiot. I know. But this is sooooo good!

Lambchop - In Care of 8675309 (2016)

Here is a track from the new Lambchop album Flotus. I could not find the album version but this will do fine. Brilliant is the only word I can find right now. I think Kurt is just fabulous and I can't wait to devote my time to the rest of this album. This is a contender.
