Welcome to Today’s Tunes where I’ll be posting a collection of a couple songs that I’m listening to that particular day. There’s no criteria for the songs, these can be any genre, old or new, doesn’t matter. Here are today’s tunes:
“Illuminate” – Ab-Soul feat. Kendrick Lamar
One of the very first tracks that got me in to Ab-Soul when I first started really digging in to the TDE roster. Ab-Soul gets somewhat overlooked with the popularity of Kendrick and Schoolboy Q, but tracks like this one show he’s just as talented as his other TDE counterparts. If you haven’t really checked him out before, other recommendations for Ab-Soul are “Tree of Life”, “D.R.U.G.S.”, and “The End Is Near ft. Mac Miller”.
“Disdain” – Knuckle Puck
I’ve been really fucking with these guys heavily lately, just some good old-fashioned pop punk coming out of Chicago. Pretty similar sound to other bands like Neck Deep and The Story So Far, so if you’re a fan of those guys definitely give Knuckle Puck a listen. Other song recommendations are “Calendar Days” and “Pretense”.
“Here Come The Girls” – Trombone Shorty
Absolute BANGER off the most recent album by Trombone Shorty, Parking Lot Symphony. This dude is just a total master of fusing jazz & funk, plus if you don’t like some well-placed horns you might have a big dump in your pants. He’s widely respected across all genres and has a whole laundry list of artists he’s worked with across all genres. If you want to hear more, check out “Something Beautiful”, “Hurricane Season”, and “Do To Me”.
