Got a job interview tomorrow, so I thought I’d post a playlist in honor of that. This is music to make you feel like that dream job is yours. Music for driving slow with the windows down, slouched in the seat, one hand on the wheel, and the stereo cranked. Music to make you feel more suave than Samuel L. Jackson after buying a diamond-covered Kangol. And that is DAMN suave.
The Dust Brothers – Homework (Buy It) This is off the Fight Club soundtrack, which is solid background cool music. A Band of Bees – Angryman (Buy It) A more laid-back, leisurely pace song.
The Coup – Get Up (feat. Dead Prez) (Buy It) More of an angry song. Warning: Listening to this one too much might make you barge into the office, throw over a couple desks and tell your boss to go f him/herself. So listen responsibly. ESG – My Love for You (Buy It) South Bronx funk with excellent cowbell and hand-clap-able beat.
De La Soul – It’s a New Thing (Buy It) A “reworking” of The Isley Brothers’ “It’s Your Thing.” The De La crew somehow make it the best parts of 1993 and 1973 all at once.
Curtis Mayfield – Superfly (Buy It) The coolest of the cool. I dare you not to strut a little while listening to this one.
