On My Five Current Songs For Spring

By | 43 Comments

<a href="http://www.lugz.com/"> The past weekend, temperatures in Tennessee teetered on the brink of 90 degrees. While the rise in mercury posed challenges towards staying cool and dry, the warmer weather brought about the lowering of car windows and the ceremonial unveiling of selected tracks for perhaps unwilling participants in the listening experience while they idled beside me at red lights. Always on the scour for content angles, I decided to keep a running list of which songs I played the most and then jotted down a quick list, presented by our sponsors at <a href="http://www.lugz.com/">Lugz</a>.

Stalley – “Hercules”

By | 3 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=148756"> Stalley's "Hercules" lives up the billing that the name prompts the mind to envision. The track is the first single off the upcoming long player, Lincoln Way Nights (Intelligent Trunk Music), which the emcee describes as "Midwest music, with a New York mentality...". Borrowing from <a href="http://s0.ilike.com/play#Aaron+Neville:Hercules:31942:s57228.10531586.18110033.0.2.108%2Cstd_9b66ccb5aaaa43019b46b06be793a0ff">Aaron Neville's "Hercules"</a> for a foundation, Stalley methodically delivers words paying homage to his Midwest roots and the influences of muscle cars and 808s, no heartbreaks.
