The Cribs

I love rock, but it has a tendency to disappear between all the good hiphop albums out there. This one however is just too good to pass up. I went to see The Cribs with my g/f at Blå a couple of weeks ago, and I've got to admit it's been a long time since I've listened to a rock album this much. Even though they have their own sound, I tend to get vibes from both The Strokes, The Thrills and Weezer(!?) on their record Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever.

1. Our Bovine Public
2. Girls Like Mystery
3. Men's needs
4. Moving Pictures
5. I'm a Realist
6. Major's Titling Victory
7. Women's Needs
8. I've Tried Everything
9. My Life Flashed Before My Eyes
10. Be Safe
11. Ancient History
12. Shoot the Poets

The Nextmen - This Was Supposed to be the Future

The Nextmen - This Was Supposed to be the Future
One of my definite favorites returns. These guys are the true mixtapemessiahs as far as I'm concerned, and the good news this time is this just might be their best studio-album.
Even though Piece of The Pie is getting a bit old, it's still fire and I love the semi-cheesy sound of The Drop and Memory Lane. It kind of sends my thoughts swirling towards the first Lluomo record. Get the Knowledge Be Born track for free along with news from the Men.
As usual I've bolded out my favorites.

01. Let It Roll (3:26)
02. Blood Fire (3:41)
03. Did No Wrong (4:16)
04. Tuffen Up (4:00)
05. Knowledge Be Born (3:17)
06. Something Got You (3:34)
07. Concentrate (2:59)
08. The Drop (4:16)
09. Let It Be (4:22)
10. Move (4:08)
11. Piece Of The Pie (4:36)
12. Camera Tricks (2:55)
13. Memory Lane (4:55)
14. This Was Suppose To Be The Future (5:23)

On the same note I'd recommend everyone(!) to get their mixtapes Personal Golf Instructions and the latest Friends & Family. That's two tapes with instant-party-guarantee.

Here's a couple of videos for your viewing pleasure. First of is the acoustic version of their Something Got You track of the new album, which is not very typical for them, but nice in an Aim kind of way.

The second video is an older track with Rodney P, Dynamite MC and Cutty Ranks.

Common - The People

New track from Common's upcoming "Finding Forever" album.

As a bonus, here's Common on Rap City this week. The fact that it really doesn't sound that impressing is because he's actually improvising (which seems to be rare these days). Nevertheless it's well worth the watch, especially with Eve as eyecandy in the background.

UGK & Outkast - International Player's Anthem

Finally a video for 2007's best song so far

In case you didn't notice, this track here contains three of the most legendary crews from the south, Andre 3000 and Big Boi of Outkast on the mic along with Pimp C and Bun B of UGK. DJ Paul and Juicy J of Three 6 Mafia on the beat. Yes, I love this song and that's why I'm adding this totally unnecessary extended version of this video. Enjoy! :)

Microsoft Surface

On the subject of Reactable, Microsoft's new Surface looks quite amazing as well!

Visit the official page for more videos. has a "First look" feature which also is worth a look.


Somehow I missed out on this, but this looks like the best toy ever! I gather Björk is supposed to be using one on tour.

Reactable has more videos...
