New Release: The Bullitts – ‘They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories’

 

What’s an album where Jay Electronica makes three features and also has Rosario Dawson singing? The Bullitts new album out today not only features the aforementioned but also includes appearances from Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def), Lucy Liu, and Tori Amos.

They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories sets a strong precedent for any future cowboy film soundtracks. Sounds range from whimsical and slow, disco, rocked out, mashed up hip-hop, and on. Nothing is predictable and everything is wonderful.

Stream the entire album on Okayplayer.

New Track: Robert Glasper – “Consequences Of Jealousy” ft. Meshell Ndegeocello (Sassy Geemix by Georgia Anne Muldrow)

 

Pure ecstasy is this new Georgia Anne Muldrow remix of Robert Glasper’s “Consequences of Jealousy” featuring Meshell Ndegeocello. Is this even fair? Or right? Loving the squiggly sway of the new beat and the enchanting sprinkles of Muldrow vocals to compliment the already mesmerizing hum of Meshell’s voice. Feels like we’re being transported to the middle of a sacred dance on another planet.

Below, also stream Pete Rock’s mellowed out remix of the title track, “Black Radio” as well as a breezy hip hop spin on “Afro Blue” with Erykah Badu compliments of 9th Wonder and special guest appearance from Phonte.

All these tracks and others will be featured on Black Radio Recovered – The Remix EP, out next week!

This weekend was buzzing all this weekend with exclamatory remarks and photographs of the awesomeness that was the 2012 Afropunk Festival in Brooklyn. We’ve got clips from a couple of the most anticipated and dynamic performances from the weekend. Above, is an energy filled medley by the indomitable Erykah Badu, which includes a special guest appearance from Yasiin Bey (Mos Def). And below is the dynamic miss Janelle Monae breathing life into all with her live performance of “Sincerely Jane.” Oh, and it starts off with a nice little introduction from Pharrell, accented by a crowd of females screaming maniacally.
