On the second day of Gheorghemas, Big Gheorghe gave to me...
Two albums to look forward to; and
A fat guy in a jer-sey
I haven't done my fair share of posting here this year in general (thanks rob for carrying us around like Yoda in Luke Skywalker's backpack) and I haven't had much music commentary in particular. So I'm excited to report on two new albums that will be released soon.
1. "36 Seasons" by Ghostface Killah
Ghostface released "Twelve Reasons to Die" last year and he's following it up with another concept album called "36 Seasons" to be released on December 9. You can listen to the whole thing here. Each track is a separate chapter in a story about Tony Starks' return to Staten Island after 9 years (9 years X 4 seasons/year = 36 seasons) to find that everything's fucked up and he has to fix it. Some tracks are smooth, others are rough. It's all good.
For the second time in a row GFK has released an album that really is a unitary whole to be listened to front to back. Maybe Ghostdini can save the album as a medium?
2. "Tuxedo" by Tuxedo
Tuxedo is a funk collaboration between Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, so naturally I'm all in. And you should be too with shit like this.
The album drops on March 5, 2015 so we have enough time to grow our hair out and work on our dance moves so that we can appear in one of the later videos.
