Hi, I'm Bakari.
I like to party.
Guys, damn. So Death on Two Wheels has released a new track on the Favorite Gentleman sampler. Well, not so much a new track, but a new recording for us. “Hey Amariah” has been heard live before, as well as in a studio session on Youtube last summer, but now it is captured in digital [...]
Chemical Peel – Bad Cream So, I have a well professed love for loud-ass music, frontwomen, and Fork and Spoon records. When these three things come together, you get Bad Cream. I headed to bandcamp to listen to the tracks, and give a little commentary on what I heard. First of all, click the image or [...]
Stonewall Stampede has released the first “of many” acoustic tracks today on National Confederate Day. In case you didn’t know it’s National Confederate Day in South Carolina and the anniversary of the death Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson. In honor of this day we have released the first of many acoustic songs, the first can be found [...]
You know how it goes. Here we go again. 10. Justice – Audio, Video, Disco Justice is back. Finally. And they’re a lot funkier. Newlands is my favorite on this one. 9. Lykke Li – Wounded Rhymes I am in love with Lykke Li. She croons all over the place on this record, [...]
Lykke Li-Get Some Oh, Lykke Li. Let me list the reasons I love you. You’re pretty. Your last record was a jam. Multiple dope remixes were released from those tracks. You appeared on N.A.S.A.’s record, The Spirit of Apollo, and killed it. Tyler, the Creator did a sick remix of “I Follow Rivers”. You asked [...]
These are my favorite releases of the year. Don’t like it? Tough. Comment or something. 10. Uffie – Sex Dreams and Denim Jeans I had been highly anticipating this new Uffie record, and when it came out I realized that I didn’t care that she wrote some of the songs when she was eighteen. It [...]
November 9 – Junior Astronomers / Harvard Two of our best friends and favorite bands from Charlotte will be playing on Tuesday at BREAK EDGE. Both of these bands will be sure to induce intense heights of intoxication and elation. Fresh and invigorating in the most blistering way, Charlotte’s Junior Astronomers take the fuzzed-out pop-rock [...]
Polite Dance Song – The Bird and the Bee Polite Dance Song – The Bird and the Bee I’m already falling out of my summer jam mood and into some fall james, but I guess summer’s only got a couple more weeks. This song is a more transitional summer to fall jam. So check it [...]
Adventure – Be Your Own Pet Adventure – Be Your Own Pet I miss Be Your Own Pet. But I still love Jemina Pearl. I almost forgot about this song until I had to write a paper for class. I wrote about Adventure, and immediately remembered why I loved it. It’s hard to jam to [...]
It’s Friday. Get Drunk. And Summer Jam. Free Music this week. “Let Me Dope You” by Childish Gambino Let Me Dope You – Childish Gambino Let Me Dope You – Childish Gambino Alright, this week is basically songs that make Will and I flip out in my car while we’re driving around. Or I’m driving [...]
Month 1 of Summer Jams is almost over. Still jamming? Here we go. “Change” by The Young Veins Change – The Young Veins Change – The Young Veins Damn. The Young Veins. Earlier in this series I posted about former labelmates of Ryan Ross and Jon Walker, Greta Salpeter (Gold Motel/ The Hush Sound). This [...]
First Up, “Losing a Whole Year” by Third Eye Blind Losing a Whole Year – Third Eye Blind Losing a Whole Year – Third Eye Blind Yes. I know this song is old. Yes. I know Third Eye Blind has released a recent record. Non-Dairy Creamer was cute and all, but Losing a Whole Year [...]

Another week, another Jam. Or two. First up “Kids” by Sleigh Bells Kids – Sleigh Bells Kids – Sleigh Bells When I first heard Sleigh Bells back in December, my mind was blown. The demo of this song, “Beach Girls”, didn’t really impress me as much as “Infinity Guitars”, or “Crown on the Ground”, but [...]
