I’m still loving the Macklamore & Ryan Lewis album The Heist…well, the songs they don’t play every five seconds on the radio.
But I think I found it’s new replacement on Rdio the other day. (I love discovering artists in their New Releases section – barely any Top 40 to be found.)
K-OS apparently has been around for a while. I’ve never heard of him (shocker). He’s a hip hop guy that has garnered some respect in the industry and created this new “two-sided” album that showcases his hip hop style as well as his love for rock and the classics (a la Paul Simon and the Beatles. There are tons of collaborations; my favorite being “C.L.A.” with Gym Class Heroes at this point. It’s one of those “get-ya-goin” kinda albums!
There are two versions of this album, one with K-OS commentary, which is cool to hear about his sources of inspiration, but only once. While you’re cooking or something. Then I’d hit up the album that’s just songs.
**These links are to Rdio where you can preview the songs if you aren’t a member. I really think you need to dowload the whole album, no matter what platform you’re on. It’s that good.Tweet this!
