SALES – “Renee” (Tiny Desk Submission)

Orlando duo SALES have yet to perform on NPR’s Tiny Desk series, but looking at their submission video, NPR is missing out. Lauren Morgan’s vocals fit oh so perfectly with the intimate ambience of the video’s mood; it’s easy to lose yourself in this two-some’s cozy sounds. Enjoy.

Hear SALES’ latest EP at their Bandcamp.


Radio Lab: Straight Outta Chevy Chase dissects the “realness” of Hip Hop

No, this isn’t a cultural manifesto on Chevy Chase and the Vacation movies. It is, however a smart look into one of the most important components of hip hop: realness. What makes something real? Who decides what is real or not? A majority of the podcast discusses a beef between hip hop superstar Nicki Minaj and radio DJ Peter Rosenberg. I really enjoyed listening to it, so I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy.
