TE#5 Hype, Hype, Appleblim & Ramadanman

1. Kanye West – Monster (The Nicki Minaj bit)

I’m not really in a position to comment on the new Kanye album having only heard it once, although this verse is pretty cool. Probably the only thing more demented than Nicki Minaj guesting with about 3 different voices is somebody making a mime-a-long youtube tribute. Even better than all of that is the hipster runoff analysis. I for one am glad that a ‘more perfect’ album than Wilco has been found.

2. Joy Orbison – Ladywell
Listen here.
Again, this isn’t really about the music. This week when news came that Joy Orbison had pressed up two new releases onto hens teeth for his Doldrums label the internet went completely nuts. What was really inspiring was the way that people came together amid the panic to help out. I don’t think it would be resorting to hyperbole to say it was like the Blitz X 9/11. I saw one guy carrying a shoe-less orphan down to phonica on his shoulders so he could buy a copy.

3. Appleblim & Ramadanman – Void 23

This one is about the music. The music is good. If you want my advice, stick with the A-side.
