The recipe for this week’s jams is half crazy hip-hop and half fuzzy pop fun, with a splash of ballads thrown in for seasoning. Mmm, delicious! So get those headphones on, girl, because we’ve got Guster, Fistful of Mercy, Pimp C, Faith Evans, Flockaveli, Alain Johannes, and Clinic after the jump!
Guster, Easy Wonderful
Adorable pop you can listen to with your kids.
Fistful Of Mercy, As I Call You Down
Folk by three boys that harmonizes so well it’s nearly gospel.
Faith Evans, Something About Faith
The voice Biggie fell in love with sings some new R&B jams.
Flockaveli, Waka Flocka Flame
Makes you wanna shake yo’ booty as fast and dirty as you can.
Pimp C, The Naked Soul Of Sweet Jones
Sadly, Pimp C passed away while working on this record in 2007—so the likes of Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and Young Jeezy picked up the gauntlet and finished it for him. Needless to say, every song is explicit.
Alain Johannes, Spark
The singer from Eleven strikes out on his own to do something Elvis Costello-y, with extra weird.
Fuzzy with fun. Man, I heart this band for all six records now.
