I begin this week's playlist in such "gangsta" fashion, as it was an entirely hiphop-based show. Yessir. I played albums over the air that a white dude from Orange County, CA has no business owning. Seriously. BUT! I realized that a lot of my friends, who generally support my taste in music, "don't like" (or don't know) much hiphop. So, I thought I would share some of my favs with them. I hope you, too (if you listened), enjoyed it. If not, listen next week and request more hiphop. I'll play it again. Promise.

18. Aug. 2006, 4:17 von Wormwood37Hey everyone,
This here’s the latest playlist from the Things that are Square radio program. I hit play on CD players for two hours, occasionally adjust levels (sometimes after it’s too late to make it sound nice), talk every so often, and get into rowdy fights on air with my ex-girlfriend. That last one actually didn’t happen, but it totally made you want to listen, didn’t it?
Here’s a stream in case you still want to hear it, free of any Jerry Springer-ness:
And now the playlist:
Calexico/Iron & Wine – Dead Man’s Will – In the Reins
Tom Waits – A Good Man is Hard to Find – Blood Money
Beirut – Brandenburg – Gulag Orkestar
The Halo Benders – Don’t Touch My Bikini – God Don’t Make No Junk
Pavement – Here – Slanted & Enchanted
Cursive – Bad Sects – Happy Hollow
The Thermals – Here’s Your Future – The Body The Blood The Machine
Liars – We Got Cold. Coughed. And Forgot Things. – We No Longer Knew Who We Were

For me, it's a mix of ambient, electronica, and hiphop beats. I don't really know where and when it started, and this would be really interesting to figure.
The first time I heard abstract hiphop, was certainly the "Kakusei" album from DJ Krush. That was a really nice surprise, and still is. Calm ambiences, loud and crunchy beats, 80 BPM, or even less.
Nowadays, I found hiphop to be way too much "MC oriented", nobody listen much the instrumentals. For example, I enjoyed more the instrumentals from Deltron 3030 rather than the normal album.
Why ? The beats talks by themselves ... Nothing more.
But why abstract ? This is a good question ...
My "top" abstract hiphop artists are :
- DJ Krush
- DJ Shadow, with his first albums

Yes, this might be the most pointless journal I've made so far but I think it was amusing enough.
So my audio player amaroK automatically got the cd covers for my music collection from Amazon.com. It found almost every album's cover but a few were not found. And for some reason, no idea why, it offered the Brokeback Mountain soundtrack cover for some of them (click on the image).
Now is this an innocent coincidence or a subtle commentary that Lupe Fiasco mixtapes, Joe Beats Experiment and MF DOOM/Ghostface bootlegs are really "gay"? Who knows... :)

"I had a dream about my mom last night.
She explained to me that she
loves me because I'm her son,
but she doesn't like me as a person."
Not being enough of a hardcore Sage Francis fan to actually purchase this but still wanting to watch it I accidentially stumbled upon the dvdrip over at Mininova and proceeded to download it. *raises right hand* TOTALLY WORTH IT! An attempt at a serious summary or review seems a bit redundant so I'll just list the random thoughts that went through my head while watching it:
x How old is Joe Beats? He seemed really young.
x I always imagined that Dose One would be an extremely hyperactive person in real life but he looked so mellow sitting in that car.
x I could never do any of those dance moves without seriously hurting myself.
x Soles hairlength to hairline ratio is amazing. I've always been a fan of his shabby looks. …
