Day Off

Light snow for most of the day gave me the excuse to make this my day off for the week. I'll use this boring, terrible excuse for a post to highlight some of the music I've been listening to while running in the last few weeks.

The release of Minty Fresh Beats Jaydiohead mashup dovetailed nicely a lot of Radiohead in my playlists in the last few months. Keeping in line with my recent visits to Brooklyn (and recent publicity for the movie Notorious, such as two hour Biggie marathons on VH1 Soul) I have been listening to Notorious B.I.G., as well. I really like both the mashup of Biggie's Everyday Struggle with the Ace of Base classic All That She Wants and the Ratatat remix of Party and Bullshit. Also on the hip hop side of things, I've finally gotten around to giving DC-native Wale an honest listen, and his free Mixtape About Nothing is very good (see Nike Boots featuring Lil' Wayne, for example). As for rock and roll, I'm still enjoying TV On The Radio's "Dear Science" album (check out DLZ) and the Handsome Furs new album "Face Control" is growing on me (I'm Confused, in particular, is a great running song).
