Jhené Aiko: Trip

Jhené Aiko’s Trip opens with “LSD,” concisely setting the tone for this extremely personal R&B album tinged with psychedelia. The second track “Jukai,” delves deep with its lyrics, while the instrumentals paint a cinematic backdrop.

“OLLA (Only Lovers Left Alive)” sets us up for a sorrow filled song, but its simple, 80s pop ish beat pulls this song out of the depths and makes it a true stand out.

“Sativa” (featuring Swae Lee) is one of the strongest tracks on the album, with the best feature too. The vocal harmonies flow over a smooth, ...

Common Isn’t Smiling, And He Isn’t Alone

Source: Rock On Philly

The tragic story of his inner-city upbringing is the pulse of Common’s Nobody’s Smiling, his latest release since 2011. This is the South Side Chicago native’s tenth studio album, and features guest appearances by Jhené Aiko, Big Sean, supergroup Cocaine 80s, and a host of other newcomers.  Common pooled with producer and long-time studio partner No I.D. for the entirety of the project, much like his previous effort The Dreamer/The Believer.

Guest appearances leave a bit to be desired.  Big Sean does not pair well with Common’s distinct, mellifluous flow in “Diamonds”, shaping a ...

Recap: The 7th Annual Roots Picnic @ Festival Pier

Source: The Swollen Fox

The Roots @ The Roots Picnic - 5.31.14The Roots Picnic took over Festival Pier for a seventh consecutive year on Saturday, bringing hip-hop legends together with up-and-coming acts. Early in the day, West Philly’s own Chill Moody got the blood flowing with a 30-minute set from the venue’s new Oasis Stage, which gives the crowd sand under its feet and a view across the river. The newly renovated Festival Pier had a nice feel to it early on, but as attendance grew, moving around to appreciate the improvements wasn’t a very attractive option.

Following Chill Moody, the crowd pinged back to the main stage for Boston’s Bad ...

Tayyib AliIt’s a hip-hop-heavy edition of our weekly playlist, with Philly natives The Roots kicking things off.

Beyond all that hip-hop is plenty of Philly-natives music, including the aforementioned Chill Moody, Tayyib Ali, Kurt Vile, Cheers Elephant, ...

To celebrate her 26th birthday, Jhene Aiko shared a video for the understated melodic beauty of a new song, “My Afternoon Dream.” Much like her friend and collaborator Drake, she too learned that working with the negatives (literally) can make for better pictures. Filmed on a beach in Maui, the negative color muting effect is used in the entire clip where we see waves bathing the shores as Aiko’s daughter – the subject of the song – frolics through the sand while her mother softly sings: “Don’t wake me up ’cause I’m in love with all that ...
