stones throwFor those that choose to snooze rather than get busy on the interweb you might have missed a little thing called podcasts. I’m sure people checking blogs know what a podcast is but have you been getting the Stones Throw podcasts? I think they’ve only had about 9 of them but everyone is a winner and this Madlib one is one of my favorites. As the title suggests its just Madlib and some funk 45s but there’s a bit in the middle where all the tunes are about heroin and its soooooooo good. The Journey Into Fresh Digging mix came out around the time of Madlib’s last album and its super fresh – loads of remixes, b-sides and tunes that Madlib sampled.

Don’t be a dummy – sign up to the Stones Throw podcasts here. Stones Throw always come with the goodness and here’s a couple of treats from them. Georgia Anne Muldrow is the only girly girl to be signed to the label but don’t call her a soul singer – she wrote, produced and sang all the tracks on her debut album – the female Madlib? She’s worked with Sa-Ra and Platinum Pied Pipers so you know she’s got talent. You would have thought that Madlib, seeing how talented he is, would have used up all the family musical talent, however his brother Oh No is pretty talented too – very solid West Coast dusty hip hop.

Oh and I can’t post about Stones Throw without posting this tune by Aloe Blacc which has been destroying me for a while now – purest future soul.
