Music Monday: Zelda Hip Hop, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Bat For Lashes and more…

batforlashes_twosunsMusic Monday you are oh-so-groovy.

This is our first edition so it will be brief, but sexy nonetheless. In the future we’ll delve a little deeper but for now just know that I recommend all of these albums, with a little extra love for Ocarina of Rhyme (but that doesn’t really count because it’s a gimmick using artists I already enjoy over music that was engrained into my brain when I was like…9 years old).

On with the music! I acquired these albums this past weekend with help from Pitchfork, Insound, eMusic and 8tracks.com. 3/4 of them have incredible titles:

Bat For LashesTwo Suns (steadily growing on me and I don’t mind spending time with her…)

Daniel – Bat For Lashes
Cymbals Eat GuitarsWhy There Are Mountains (#2 best selling album at Insound and eMusic this week)

And The Hazy Sea – Cymbals Eat Guitars

Bill CallahanSometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle (Awesome lyricist)

Eid Ma Clack Shaw – Bill Callahan

Team TeamworkThe Ocarina of Rhyme

This last one is a mix of classic rappers with classic beats from…Legend Of Zelda! Includes Jay-Z, Dre & Snoop, Aesop Rock, Clipse and more. You can listen to it ALL below:
