New music! Sometimes old music. Music that we love!
The Roots might be the only group who crosses the boundary between hip-hop and a cappella nerds. This week’s Did You Hear? features the opening instrumental track from the Album How I Got Over, released in 2010. It’s also the third post I’ve done showcasing thick, swarming, amazing harmonies. If this track isn’t quite “rootsy” enough for ya, check out “Right On,” from the same album, featuring Ms. Joanna Newsom, who is an amazing artist in her own right and a childhood friend of mine (more from her later).
