Published Feb 01, 2010Last night's Grammys made their selections of the best music you should've been listening to all year, now here's a list of some new music that's actually worth checking out in Exclaim!'s Click Hear.
To start you off with some ferocity, BC's White Lung add an unnamed dude to their noise punk chick trio, making "Atlanta" even more of an enticing head-bang. Then we kick it old school with Debby Blackwell's feel-good "Once You Got Me Going" from Bob Blank: The Blank Generation - Blank Tapes 1975-87, which drops tomorrow (February 2). Check this one out if you're tired of the computer-enhanced Rihanna types and looking for some classic '80s nostalgia.
If you feel like some beats, try the upcoming release from Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek's team-up Reflection Eternal titled Reflections Per Minute. The track "Just Begun," featuring Mos Def, J. Cole and Jay Electronica, is a good combo of stereotypical hedonism and classy brass. And for those who like a little singer-songwriter fare, Jason Collett presents his "Little Tiger," a track from his new Rat A Tat Tat add-on EP, To Wit To Woo.
We cap things off with the trio of British gents, Let's Wrestle. For a familiar (in a good way) happy-go-lucky take on recession blues, relax with some G&Ts and take a listen to the "ba ba ba"-laden "We Are the Men You'll Grow to Love Soon."
Check out all of these tracks and more in our Click Hear section.
