Start Spreading The News...

Talib Kweli and Jean Grae: New York Shit (Bootleg, 2006)
Blonde Redhead: Spring & By Summer Fall (4AD, 2007)

... We're leaving tomorrow. The bags aren't packed (my argument is we take next to nothing and come back with shedloads), but the parking is booked and I'm thinking about that bloody mary on the plane and the chance to sit and read five newspapers on the trot. Grand Central Station for dinner on Tues, lunch at Otto, dinner at Peter Luger on Wed and something from Dean & Deluca before we fly back (maybe, this is very likely to change at any moment). Meanwhile, I hammer the adidas originals store ("store", you see, I'm halfway there already!) on Wooster and perhaps pick up some LPs and books on my travels too.

I know it's frightfully boring to post a hip hop track when you're going to New York (almost as boring as misquoting Frank), but I do genuinely like this track. Blonde Redhead are also from New York, but they are more yer actual indie / psych / pop sort of thing. This is taken from their wonderful new album which is out in a few weeks.

Enjoy!
