Music of the Week

I go through music phases. I wax, I wane. I often listen to the same album on repeat over the course of a week or month.

My account details this pretty clearly when you check out my weekly listening:

A couple of weeks ago I asked N to put some Disturbed and Linkin Park on a cd because I needed some upbeat coding music. He couldn’t bear to leave any empty space on the cd, so he added some things he thought I’d like — enter Santogold.

Last week, I listened to the Santogold album a LOT. The only track I was familiar with prior was “L.E.S. Artistes.” I dig the album as a whole — some songs remind me of M.I.A., some songs remind me of Liz Phair, others remind me of Siouxsie Sioux (that’s a bit of a strange mix).

Another musical discovery last week via fellow GT fan Scotty Crowe over at the John Mayer blog was Viva La Hova, a [free!] mixtape mashup of Coldplay and Jay-Z. It’s really good! Download it, take a listen. Yell at me later if you hate it.
