Admittedly, I don’t know much about Spree Wilson. I know that he sings, raps, produces, writes and plays a mighty mean guitar. He’s a proud Southern boy, which I deemed from his nice country drawl and his new joint, “Right One, Wrong Time.” Reminiscent of Atlanta in the 90s, the Flush Music-produced track will evoke the urge to Bankhead Bounce and scrub the ground, all while lacing up roller skates at Golden Glide. Although the song sounds like we’ve gone back in time, it definitely jams, shawty.

New Orleans jazz great Dr. John returns with a hard-hitting bluesy, social commentary in the form of “Revolution.” He’s paired with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach to create what will surely be a nicely crafted album, Locked Down. Dr. John has long been a staple on the blues and jazz scene so I’m interested in what else Auerbach will be able to bring out of this collaboration. Auerbach did tell Rolling Stone, “Like that Farfisa solo on ‘Revolution’ – that’s a first-take solo. He just goes for it, man. He told me he hadn’t played a Farfisa organ since 1969 when he was with Doug Sahm, and he killed it.” Yeah, that organ is just sick as hell, man.
You can stream “Revolution” here. You won’t regret it. Album drops April 3rd.
Tags: Funk It Out Friday, Ohio Players, Sweet Sticky Thing
Some slow funk for y’all on this Friday afternoon. This 1975 hit from the ever dynamic Ohio Players is such a smooth, sexy track. The saxophone solo throughout stands out as one of the highlights of the song. Not to mention the cover art. Have mercy. The Ohio Players sure knew how to elicit sex appeal with those sweet voices and talented fingers (ha!).
Tags: Georgia Anne Muldrow, Husfriend, Madlib, Seeds
The second track from Georgia Anne Muldrow’s upcoming project, Seeds, dropped last week. ”Husfriend” is a laidback tune dedicated to finding and committing to love. If this incredibly smooth track is any indication of what’s to be expected from the Madlib/Muldrow collab, I’m pretty sure some good shit is about to transpire.
Download the track on iTunes. LP drops on 3/27.
Tags: Birthday Shoutout, Erykah Badu
A lil late but I most certainly had to show love to one of soul music’s most influential, Erykah Badu. I remember when I heard “On & On” for the first time. I couldn’t believe all the heart and soul emanating from my speakers. Ever since then, I’ve been a
lover fan of the analog girl in a digital world. Her voice, her style, her entire being is the shit that nonconformists live for. She’s the poster lady for “do what the hell you gon’ do.” And at 41, she’s doing her own thing quite nicely. Singer, mommy, dj, doula, artist, activist and b-girl, Badu has solidified her place in music lovers’ hearts.
Check out this interview where she explains the pivotal role of the DJ. Yes, yes, y’all.
Tags: Live Your Life, Pharrell Williams, Yuna
I’ve been rocking to this Pharrell-produced track for a few weeks now. Malaysian artist Yuna has added visuals to her inspiring track “Live Your Life.” The video follows the singer as she embraces the sights and sounds of the city of which her efforts and dreams have placed her. I really dig the overall theme of this song–living life to its fullest potential, “we were meant for something bigger than this.”
Tags: Crystalfilm, Daniel Wirtberg, Little Dragon, Ritual Union
One of my favorite tracks from Ritual Union. The new video for “Crystalfilm” has a slight creep factor but it’s an interesting take nonetheless.
Little Dragon returns with the eccentric visuals for their track “Crystalfilm”, from their 2011 release Ritual Union. Directed by Daniel Wirtberg, the video conjures up an intense, visually provocative dream sequence. Little Dragon is good for keeping ish fresh and strangely innovative. (via Jay Force)

Damian Marley and a love song? *swoon* Whether he’s crooning or spitting, he always waxes poetic. Anxiously anticipating his new album, reportedly dropping in September. Y’all groove to this for a while.
