thenewgreen you'll probably dig this.

The opening chase and the oner right after are masterpieces. This movie solidified Edgar Wright as my favorite director.

I saw it 3 times in theaters.

Sabrina Setlur-- German rapper. This is her most popular song, but it's all solid. Music video for this one is also cool as fuck, especially for the 90s.

LEA-- great sort of pop/electro singer-songwriter. Actually found out about her because I was at a retreat with her drummer, but fell in love with the record (Vakuum). Definitely worth a listen.

Stoppok-- the OG German rocker. Enough said.

Jan Delay-- singer(?). Kind of in the vein of Peter Fox. Funk/reggae I guess?

Seeed-- reggae. Peter Fox's original group. Pretty fun, not my favorite.

3ergezimmer-- jazz fusion. Who said German music had to have words?

Deichkind-- stupid German party rap. This song translates to "riot and rave."

Ohrbooten-- surprisingly good 90s-esque reggae fusion. Love this one for the lyrics: it's basically an anarcho-communist anthem. (Everything for everyone until everything is everyone's.

I'm gonna take a break for now.

E: OOH, also

I fucking love Peter Fox. If anyone wants a zip of his first record PM me.

(He was only sort of a rapper before-- he was lead vocalist of the reggae fusion group Seeed, so he rapped some and sang some.)

Oh boy strap in y'all. I'm at a party right now but when I get back I've got about 10 songs already in mind.


Sidebar: Lil Yachty does suck. But on his first mixtape and the Broccoli feature, he was just a kid having fun, and there's something appealing about someone that makes fun music and doesn't care if it kinda sucks. That's why Teenage Emotions flopped-- he was trying way too hard, and still sucked. It was over-commercialized garbage.

I'm still debating. Probably depends on how busy my work schedule is for next week.

Original German, if anyone cares:

    Ich lebe mein Leben in wachsenden Ringen,

    die sich über die Dinge ziehn.

    Ich werde den letzten vielleicht nicht vollbringen,

    aber versuchen will ich ihn.


    Ich kreise um Gott, um den uralten Turm,

    und ich kreise jahrtausendelang;

    und ich weiß noch nicht: bin ich ein Falke, ein Sturm

    oder ein großer Gesang.
