Aloe Blacc’s Good Things Out Today + MP3

Stones Throw artist Aloe Blacc has been working up to today’s release of Good Things with interviews, performances and viral covers (check out our Exclusive Giant Step video interview, coming soon!) After perfecting his emcee skills with producer Exile in their group Emanon and a solo debut record, Shine Through, Aloe Blacc emerged from relative obscurity this year when HBO chose his “I Need A Dollar” as the theme song for How To Make It In America.  (“I Need A Dollar” is MP3 of the Day on Amazon) With production by the Truth & Soul crew, Good Things is now available and it’s the best soul album to come out this year.

Gil-Scott Heron & Chris Cunningham Video

Last night filmmaker Chris Cunningham debuted his work New York Is Killing Me at the MoMA, an audio-visual remix of Gil-Scott Heron‘s song; a “musique concrete” of “New York Is Killing Me” from the recent album I’m New Here. The above video is a single channel version, but for the event it was projected onto 3 screens with an extended version of the song. Cunningham replaced 90% of the original music with recordings of trains and environmental sounds, giving the song a darker cinematic vibe.
