Song of the Day

No, the song of the day is not a pair of jeans.

Switching it up a bit, here’s New Zealand’s The Naked and Famous. If you’re a fan of Passion Pit or The XX, this is a band you have to check out. They offer a nice mix of the electricpop ballads and different singing (screaming?) that Passion Pit does, but also have the mellow, shared lead vocals that the XX have made huge. I would recommend checking out the whole album, called Passive Me, Aggressive You. The Naked and Famous are the next thing to hit it big in the US (they’re currently on a huge European tour), waiting for a Lollapalooza or Pitchfork to give them a little push.

Chiddy Bang did a remix of the song, which you can listen to here.

Song of the Day

J.Cole, or Jermaine Lamarr Cole, pictured above in his Jordan retro XII’s, performed at this past summers Lollapalooza. He brought about many casual fans, a few dedicated ones, and plenty of newcomers as is typical of Lolla. He left with a lot more of those dedicated ones. Recently signing onto Roc Nation, he is often considered the next to blow (yes, even more than he already has).

This is a song he recorded in 2006, with an old Biggie sample. Check it out, it’s called Can I Get Wit Ya f/ Notorious B.I.G.
