Song of the Day – Tuesday 9/7/2010 Bethany Cosentino, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij September 7, 2010

It’s the day after Labor Day and you know what that means…it’s the symbolic end of Summer.  So put away your white pants and let’s listen to one last song to commemorate our favorite season…

Creating an exclusive track for Converse, Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend sing an ode to waiting all year long for Summer.  So now that Summer’s over, you’re just now realizing how good you had it, how great Summer made you feel, and how much you took it for granted.  Now, of course, you want Summer back.  But don’t despair, you’ll get back together in 9 months, but until then, download “All Summer” here.

Song of the Day – Wednesday 7/28/2010 The Roots July 28, 2010

Hip hop legends, The Roots released their ninth studio album, How I Got Over on 6/22/2010.  The single, “The Fire” features John Legend on the hook and the video was directed by Rik Cordero who explains the premise for the video:

“It chronicles a post-apocalyptic death march set in 1945 during the final stages of World War II in Europe.  After a cataclysmic event renders the war futile, a paramilitary splinter group, led by a Kurtz-like figure known as The Commodore, forces the transfer of young men who will be used as labor…and food.  The last survivor of the march receives a mysterious White Box which holds the key to survival.”
