  • Meth, Ghost and Rae, Wu Massacre (The beat on LCD Soundsystem’s “Pow Pow Pow” sounds a lot like “It’s that Wu Sh*t.”)

  • A Tribe Called Quest, People’s Instinctive Travels And Paths Of Rhythm
  • Usher, Confessions and Raymond v. Raymond (If Confessions is good enough for The-Dream in “Luv Songs,” it damn sure is good enough for me. This is the first time I’ve ever listened to whole albums by him and I’m kind of confused. I feel like he has these amazing singles that wrap their fingers around every twist and turn of your brain cavity and then whole albums that kind of drag on. It makes me want to just make a playlist of all my favorite songs, call it “The Definitive Usher,” and save myself hours of listening to all the other stuff. I’ll be realistic, though: this probably won’t happen.)
  • Vampire Weekend, Contra (Surprised I didn’t hate it.)
