Beastie Boys – Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

Hot Sauce Committee Part Two by Beastie Boys

Good people, unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the “clean” version of our new album, The Hot Sauce Committee pt 2 has leaked. So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy Kikoos for life!

Thanks, Boys. Keep it dirty. Preorder here.

Gayngs (Relayted)

I’ll just quote from their myspace page:

After a year of tracking and mixing, GAYNGS is officially ready to release the album, entitled Relayted. The initial goal was achieved perfectly, yet Relayted sounds refreshing and modern. With each song written at 69 BPM’s, and tripped-out transitions from song to song, it is truly an audio experience from start to finish.

I got their album and it’s very warm and comfortable but dramatic–the 69bpm feature is partly to blame. Go get it.

For a textual teaser, below are lyrics for “The Last Prom on Earth” (more…)

Happy Monday, kids: Cameo [music]


Cameo – Candy

It’s like candy
I can feel it when you walk
Even when you talk it takes over me
You’re so dandy
I wanna know
Can you feel it too just like I do
