Talib Kweli & Hi-Tek – The Blast

1999.

The start of my high school career.

What more can I say. Nostalgia is as nostalgia does… Or something like that…

Music nerds of the universe: Unite!

Buzzfeed: How much of a music snob are you?

I’m not surprised… reeeeeally not surprised.

The comments are hilarious too, by the way. A bunch of people who REALLY wanted to be snobby and talk about music theory got their panties in a twist because the “quiz” (that apparently dictates real life) told them they weren’t music nerds. Well, guess what. I scored 47/100 and got this

Buzzfeed music quiz

Buzzfeed quizzes. Get me everytime.

And then, there was this:

Music shaming

Yes. I constantly do this. I really don’t mean to, I promise! Like that time, today, when I discussed the legalities of Vanilla Ice sampling David Bowie in my First Amendment class made up of 20/21 year olds? Yeah, like that…

I’m not upset. Honestly, I’m oddly proud. Take the quiz. Comment with your scores. And know that this means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things. The fact that I feel I need to preface such is unbelievably discouraging. I shouldn’t have read those comments… chillllll people chilllllllllllllllllll.

Local Natives – Wide Eyes

It doesn’t bother me when I hear Local Natives as I shop inside Urban Outfitters. I’m not that kind of hipster. I don’t get angry when the cool kids act like they like them. I’m ok with that. As long as they don’t change, I’ll stay happy. I can’t listen to Taylor Rice’s voice without closing my eyes and wishing I was anywhere but here. Especially when there is SNOW IN APRIL. Thanks, Kansas. You are truly depressing. I will now just sit here in class, daydreaming of cruising along the 405 with my windows down and my hair blowing in the wind…

Stardust – Music Sounds Better With You

Flashback 16 years … I was in 8th grade, probably thinking I was way cooler than I was. My brother was in high school at the time so I naturally got to mooch off of his impeccable music taste. I’m not ashamed. 1998 was also a time of feel good, end of the nineties dance-jam that would soon merge with hip-hop to create the sounds we hear today. It’s Monday, people. It’s time to chair dance.

Classixx – Hanging Gardens

CLASSIXXXXXXX!! If anyone can listen to Classixx and walk away saying “That was complete bullshit”… I want nothing to do with you. Ok, that’s a bit harsh… but GOODNESS GRACIOUS YOU GET MY POINT RIGHT? My brother and I ventured to the House of Blues in Dallas a month ago, saw these guys, and had a night. Marcus wasn’t in the mood to dance upon arrival… then they started playing. Music is a special, special gift. A beautiful mash of noise. For me and Marcus, it’s been the one true constant in our lives – the only thing that would never give up on either of us…

Dearest Classixx,

Keep making noise, I wanna keep hearing it.

Love,
The Audible Mention

The Tough Alliance – A New Chance (The Juan Maclean Remix)

I must be in some kind of mood lately – there’s just something about all this dancey electronica that I can’t seem to pull myself away from. It’s like kryptonite. I don’t wanna like it, but I just can’t help but be drawn to it. Maybe it’s some sort of lost nostalgia from my youth… I honestly don’t care to pinpoint its origin, I just wanna listen some more…

Syron – Breaking (Tom Flynn Remix)

There’ll always be a special place in my heart for 90s-inspired electronic and breakbeats. 19-year-old Syron shouldn’t know about either of those two things, but somehow hits the nail on the head with this one. I could pretty much listen to this on repeat.
