Good things have been reaching my ears recently, from all over the map. In particular, that new Generationals album is on repeat. Bibio and The Weeknd are still holding shit down pretty tough too. Sometimes I like to recap things on the Leftovers. Just kind of take stock of where we’re at, or try to tie everything together with a theme. Today, I got nothing to offer but a handful of songs I can’t get out of my head. Not to mention, it’s a pretty ass day, and there’s a free Mos Def show to get to soonish. Hope your Saturday’s treating you as well as mine is. Oh, and The Beastie Boys are back too. Which is fucking awesome.
