Poule d’Or Compilation

Our friend over at goldhenne just included Hi Tiger in his first compilation.

It's a free download and its good. Here are a few of my favorites...

Museum of Bellas Artes - Who Do You Love

Brahms - Toward The Ghost

Germany Germany - Symmetry feat. Jessica Morgan

Now go and get the rest.

Ready For The World

It's nice to see R&B making a bit of a comeback lately.  How To Dress Well & cokc dokc are from Brooklyn, making easy listening lo-fi jamz.  This is one of their best:

Jump For Joy

I can't wait to see what else Joy Orbison has in store for us this year. His remix of Jose James' Blackmagic (which was also reworked by new favorite Untold) is probably my favorite song at the moment. I'm also including his chill, blissed out new single.
On a side note, if we disappear anytime soon, check for us at www.myothercomputerisasunset.wordpress.com. Apparently
Google is in the process of deleting music blogs. Fuckers.

Bear In Heaven

Brooklyn based Bear In Heaven's latest album Beast Rest Forth Mouth has been getting a lot of play from me as of late.  Think Pheonix in outer space.

Bear In Heaven - You Do You

Bear In Heaven - Casual Goodbye

New York Is Killing Me

New York based artist Gil Scott-Heron's upcoming album "I'm New Here" is a mix between sparse, beat heavy production and spoken word/blues-rap.  This track perfectly sums up how I've been feeling lately.

Riva's a Star

Riva Starr is about to drop his first full length album, 'If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade'.  Here are two of my favorite tracks off of this release. It's totally worth a buy, the whole album is jackinggg.

Riva Starr - Black Mama

Riva Starr - Riva's Boogaloo
