The Doe Bay Sessions - Best of Sound on the Sound

I only recently came across The Doe Bay Sessions, which take some incredibly talented folk musicians and put them out in the wilderness to let them just jam out for a few minutes, and man are the results amazing. Unfortunately it looks as though it has been a few years since a new session has been recorded, but luckily there is quite a back catalog of videos to browse through to keep you busy. Below I've put together a few of the performances that stood out and should serve as a nice little teaser for you to explore further. To see all of the videos you can head over to soundonthesound's youtube page.

Lil Dicky - Classic Male Pregame (Official Video)

Huh. It's somewhat disturbing just how depressingly accurate this video is. Oh well...

Kanye West vs. Sam Smith - Tell Me I'm The Only One (Carlos Serrano Mix)

Little late to the party on this one, but it's such a smooth tune that its worth posting again. Mash ups can be a tricky thing at times and can be so hit or miss, but Carlos Serrano nailed this mash of Kanye's "Can't Tell Me Nothin" and Sam's "I'm Not The Only One". Check it out below and listen to some more of Carlos' work over at his soundcloud page here.

L.A. Symphony - King Kong

Why another song that appears on one of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater soundtracks you might ask? Well, why the fuck not. Not only does this song kick ass, but it also somewhat qualifies as a throwback tune on this fine Thursday. Stream it below...

Haiku D'etat - Non Compos Mentis

I find it somewhat surprising that this is the first I'm hearing this song considering the copious amounts of Tony Hawk Pro Skater I used to play back in the day, but everybody knows THPS jumped the shark after the third one so that may possibly be why. Either way, I'm glad "Non Compos Mentis" popped up on my playlist earlier today from the aptly named Haiku D'etat, named as such for their revolutionary poetic stylings, since it has been stuck on repeat and in my head all day. And for those wondering, "Non Compos Mentis" means 'not sane or in one's right mind', which makes sense because this song is insane...

Blueprint - No Half Smokin'

Older track here from Blueprint that I just recently came across and the timing couldn't be better. To be completely honest, Rhymesayers is sort of re-releasing this track to celebrate it's 10th anniversary and to give it a little more exposure this time around since it may have flown somewhat under the radar the first time. Definitely digging the intentional chill old school vibe of "No Half Smokin'". Stream it below and grab it and other Blueprint tracks over at Fifth Element currently on sale this week only.

Little Eva - He Is The Boy

Been kind of a lazy Saturday and I seemed to have somehow ended up watching the rom-com-dram "Hit & Run" which happened to be showing on Comedy Central. I'd give the movie probably about a 6, but holy hell the soundtrack to this movie is a solid 9. Among all the tunes playing during this uproarious comdram came this hidden gem from Little Eva called "He Is The Boy". Probably better known for her #1 hit "The Loco-motion" in 1962, this song appeared on the flipside of that very single and is the better song too in my opinion. Just goes to show you though that you can find good music that is new to you pretty much anywhere...
