(31) Days of Good: Day 31

There’s only 6 hours left in 2011 (here on the west coast at least).  I’ve said it a million times, but i’ll say it one more time, 2011 was a GREAT year for music lovers.  Today’s GOOD are a handful of tracks to help you ring in the New Year with a bang, including The White Panda, Alan Wilkis, some Jamie xx and Childish Gambino remix action, and since i’m up in my hometown for NYE, Chico’s very own The Make.

I truly hope you all (my 3 faithful readers) enjoyed this years edition of (31) Days of Good.  I definitely left some tracks out this year and i’m positive more than a fair share went overlooked, but nobodies perfect, right?  Anyways, Happy New Year!
[p.s. if you want to check out all of this years GOOD, and more, i’ve compiled them all on spotify.]

(31) Days of Good: Day 29

Today’s GOOD is a year’s worth of guilty pleasures.  I wouldn’t necessarily say I like all of these songs, but I can’t help but pay attention when I hear them.  And to be honest, if some of these songs weren’t so overplayed, they would probably be legitimate favorites.  What were your guilty pleasures this year?


♪ Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (from Torches)

I had this stuck in my head for weeks. They are like a pretty, Disney channel version of MGMT.


♪ Adele – Someone Like You (from 21)

This record was hard to miss this last year. Probably the most played song of 2011, but it deserves to be here. Adele stomped on the idea of a sophomore slump with her second effort, 21, and proved that a girl with a great voice can sell millions of albums. It was refreshing to see such a talent that wasn’t overproduced or autotuned.


♪ Lil Wayne ft. Cory Gunz – 6 Foot 7 Foot (from The Carter 4)

I can’t do Lil Wayne anymore, I feel like he has become a caricature of himself. He is funny and has some good stuff, but is probably the most over hyped rapper out there. That being said, this track is awesome. I love the production and it reminds me of the old Weezy.


♪ Waka Flocka Flame ft. Roscoe Dash & Wale – No Hands (from Flockaveli)

I’ve heard other rappers talk about this dude in interviews, rappers that I like, so I had to check him out. It’s weird, dirty south shit, but fun. Give it a try.


♪ Dev – In The Dark (single)

This is my silly club track, it is a straight up Euro-trash dance beat, but fun if you’re on the dance floor or in a club. I heard about this chick on The Hundreds blog, she has some cool artsy videos, and the song is catchy.


♪ Beyoncé – Countdown (from 4)

Not since “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” have I felt so guilty listening to (and liking) a Beyoncé track.  This track won’t be the dancehall staple “Put a Ring on It” is, but I’d be lying if I told you I liked it less.

[new music roundup] 11.29.11

Between my 4 year wedding anniversary, the Thanksgiving holiday, prepping this year’s (31) Days of Good, and a fantasy football playoff-push,  I haven’t had much time to work on this week’s new music roundup.  Honestly though, I haven’t come across many interesting brand new releases.  But like I said earlier, I haven’t really put in a proper search and my email is way backed up.  However, there are a handful of interesting reissues, remasters, compilations, etc. being released this week.  So without further ado, a few of my favorite new releases this week…

Adele//Live At the Royal Albert Hall 


Gorillaz//The Singles Collection: 2001 – 2011


Various Artists//The Inbetweeners: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (features exclusive new music by Mike Skinner aka The Streets).
