Awe Struck

Brian "B." Reith (not coincidentally pronounced "Be Right") is a Christian rapper from Milwaukee, WI, proving that talent can be found in the most peculiar places. When my cousin forwarded me this track a few days ago he described B. Reith's lyrics as "Eminem-ish (yet toned down, positive and less annoying)". What do you think? Give him a shot and temporarily forget any negative preconceptions you might have about Christian music. Enjoy this one.

Back to the Grind

Last week I remedied the emerging symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder by spending the week in LA. February in LA is basically the first week of May in NYC.

The trip was a whirlwind of food and Sebastien Tellier's latest album, Sexuality (of American Apparel fame). The album was in heavy circulation at my brother's place and I haven't been able to get him out of my head all week! Still on the fence about his beard, but his music is definitely catchy. The man has got style.

Here's a popular track from his 2005 album Politics called La Ritournelle (of Ugly Betty fame).

Enjoy the one day week and President's Day weekend!
