I was going to call this weekly column New Music Monday, but I didn’t feel like waiting until next week to get started. 🙂
I’m the “music guy” in the office. My tastes run far and wide, so you probably won’t like everything I’m listening to. But my hope is to introduce you to some new music that you might not have heard before. With that said, enjoy this week’s selections!
Mann – Buzzin
This song has been out for a few months now, but it’s only now getting nationwide recognition. It’s a fun song that makes you feel a little nostalgic. Why’s that? Maybe it’s the fact that they so blatently sampled Nu Shooz’s “I Can’t Wait”.
Birdman – Fire Flame (Remix) ft. Lil Wayne
I’m not usually a fan of Birdman, but this song just got stuck in my head and wouldn’t go away. My g/f hated it the first few times she listed to it, but now she wants the song on her iPod!
Travis Barker – Carry It ft. RZA, Raekwon, Tom Morello
Travis Barker is a god on the drums. He never really got to showcase his talents in Blink 182 (I did see him do a drum solo during a Blink show that was insane!), but it’s some of his side projects that really caught my attention. A few years ago, a video appeared on YouTube that had Travis Barker playing drums to Soulja Boy’s Crank That. Instant gold!
Fast forward to 2011, and “Carry It” starts getting air play on XM/Sirius. The first time I heard it, I was hooked! I figured it was just another one-off collaboration, but then I heard about Travis Barker – Give The Drummer Some. I picked it up last week, and I’m absolutely loving it! Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
