Such a fun sound. The way these Brooklynites use horns and synthesizers is magical.

Music makes movies memorable. Even more so when the film is the passion project of Belle and Sebastian’s Stuart Murdoch.

[on repeat] Theophilus London

My frequent collaborator, 35mmBeats, introduced me to this mix-tape maestro way back (at least 6 months ago), though I must admit, it wasn’t until the last month or so that I really gave this artist the listening time he deserves.  But for the past week, i’ve listened (almost exclusively) to Mr. London and i’m quite impressed/obsessed.

It’s hard to describe Theophilus London’s sound.  Yes. He’s a Brooklyn rapper, but his electro, dark synth, 80’s hip hop, indie influences, and songwriting skills (not to mention his keen fashion sense), set him apart from the typical hip hopper.  I should also note, he’s reached critical acclaim without ever releasing a full length.

Some of my favorite Theophilus tracks are below, but be sure to pick up the Lovers Holiday EP on February 8 (preorder) and keep an eye out for his debut full length, which is set for a Spring release.  Also, be sure to bookmark This Charming Blog to maintain your Theophilus fix.
