New song of the day: A huge-sounding kitchen-sink track along the lines of his previous songs “The Crystal Cat” or “Red F,” Dan Deacon’s newest song “Lots,” from his forthcoming difficult-to-Google album “America,” certainly lives up to its name. The album comes out August 28.
Childish Gambino: Eat Your Vegetables (From Eat Your Vegetables)
Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, is known in the rap world for his smart lyrics that hide obscure pop culture references. In “Eat Your Vegetables,” a just-released track, he isn’t so subtle. The first verse ends with “Man I die for my hood, Trayvon.” Rap songs are time capsules, and with a verse like that, “Vegetables” is no exception. But that doesn’t mean Gambino’s afraid of throwing a joke into the tune. Example:
“(Like when someone is like, ‘what happened to Chris?’ And you turn around and there’s a fat guy that kind of looks like Chris And you like, “oh shit” and laughing and shit)”
No word yet if there’s a new album on the way; “Camp” only dropped in November. — Sami @ SFB
