Now I love Kid Cudi, but i was a little worried Day N Nite would get overplayed and then just blow over. Little Boots put out a fantastic cover a while back, and Chiddy Bang just dropped their take on the track.  I ❤ Chiddy, so obviously I’m digging it, but honestly, i do sort of miss Cudi’s catchy hook.  The Philly boys’ remix is well worth listening to, though: the lyrics are fantastic and i cant wait until they get their album out.  On a whim, I wrote their drummer, Zach Sewall yesterday, and he said theyre working hard to get the Kung Fu EP out this summer. If you’re in the philly area, go check them out, seriously. i think they’re playing at Swarthmore this weekend (hilarious, right?).

Chiddy Bang – Day N Nite
i just realized what they rapped early on in Because (ft. Radiohead):
top floor yeah / think i might move in / ivy league writing / tell me what upenn
❤ (or maybe i dreamed it)
 MIA ft Kovas – Hit That
MIA sounds like missy in this short little track. i didnt want to like it, bc i feel like it just has too many references / beats from paper planes, but ugh, it’s catchy. and i love the lyrics: we fly like paper, get high like planes, smokin pineapple express til it fries my brain
NERD ft Santogold Santigold- Soldier
I cant believe Santi had to drop the O in her name.  Still, crazy exciting track.

went to the vigil for anti-prop 8 support tonight at city hall. wish id done more during the election than just pass on a few emails and vote. i realized last week how incredibly important this all is, and im really glad i went tonight.  it was just amazing to stand outside with an entire community, and listen to these incredible speeches about overcoming discrimination, never stopping the fight for our rights, and treating everyone (even prop-8) supporters with respect and tolerance – we need to remind the world that we are one and the same. when a group of people takes away the rights of some; they take away the freedom of all.

oh hello loyal reader (val).  here’s a treat for you: New MIA: SUS (Save Ur Soul) 
(ill ignore the use of the word “ur” for “your”, Maya, but know youre on thin ice.)

everyone loves to compare santogold to mia. i do not. both, however, happen to rock.

from Santogold’s mixtape with Diplo (yeah philly love!), Top Ranking, here’s santi’s Get It Up (Radioclit Mix feat. M.I.A. and Gorilla Zoe)
im hoping they collaborate more, and with the whole philly / diplo / spank rock connection, maybe ill get my wish…

yeasayer – 2080

when i was looking for an apt here back in march, this one girl who’s place i looked at in the marina. very sweet girl, kenyon alum, totally marina. she was funny, though – she had just moved out of a loft in soma where she was living with her hipster friends, and she was like, i go to the yeasayers! im indie! and of course i had no idea who the yeasayers were at this point. but to the point: this song is fantastic. layered, textured, syth-laden… just gorgeous.
