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.
