Songs of the Week 318: May 23 – May 29

#5. The Babe Rainbow – Rainbow Rock

The Babe Rainbow | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Heard the song prior to seeing the band. It’s such a perfect fit after finding the image. This is one of those “music from another era” moments. Very Woodstock-y.

#4. Baird Feat. Berhana – Beluga v2

This is great. Berhana is great. Baird is great. All these things work nicely. (give it at least til 1 min in)

#3. Hoodie Boy – Voyager

Hoodie Boy | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Hoodie Boy’s Space & Time album is completely intoxicating. I am not necessarily crazy into any song (with this track being my favorite), but I cannot stop listening.

#2. JT Flowers – Eastside #2

JT FLOWERS | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Just LOVE me some hip hop that’s different. Unique. Crazy cool stuff here from JT Flowers.

#1. J.Cole Freestyle

J. Cole | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Ok it’s not often I post a YouTube clib. I also don’t think I’ve ever posted a freestyle. But HOLY hell is this fucking smooth. Yes, J.Cole has a new album out but this is 1000x better than the rest of the album IMO. The first first freestyle in the video is what I’ve been jamming too (the beat over 93 ’til infinity). I’m not really into the second half. But wowza. That first freestyle is absolutely unreal.
