Retro to Cosmic: TBoH Summer Soundtracks

*

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

Little girl, she had to grow up quick,
She ain’t a child no more.
Her heart’s still soft but her skin got thick,
She ain’t a child no more.
How could a mother be so reckless and wild?
Put your kid through such torture and trial?
You can only have the love of your child,
She ain’t a child no more.

Janelle Monáe

Say you’ll go to Nirvana,
Will you leave Samsara?
In the words of Dhammapada
Who will lead, who will follow?

Flying Lotus

“On Cosmogramma, this never-ending stream of aural textures sounds effortless, and the enthralling swirl of jazz, drum ’n’ bass, dubstep and hip-hop beckons you toward the edge of something damn near cosmic.” (Review)

What’s your soundtrack this summer?

  1. Trombone Shorty’s new cd, Backatown, is constantly on (on my ipod, in the car, in my office, etc.).
