[SONG OF THE DAY] Tuxedo - "The Tuxedo Way"
Tuxedo 2019

TUXEDO ARE BACK!

I’ll toast to that.

The dopest dapper dudes are back to make sure you know that the funk is here to stay with their brand new track, “The Tuxedo Way”. It’s the perfect return for the duo, full of retro funk and boogie vibes. I’m a little obsessed with the glass clinking at the opening of the song as their little heads up that we’ll soon be toasting to the Tuxedo way of life.

“Tuxedo is music for celebrating,” the duo shared about the new song. “Yet, as we were working on new music, we realized, much to our surprise, that we didn’t actually have a quintessential celebration song in our catalog. ‘The Tuxedo Way’ is the answer to that problem.”

I love that Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One have this project to escape to when they need a breather from their respective solo efforts. Speaking of solo efforts, Hawthorne hinted in an update to fans that we can expect some new solo music from him as well.

I’ll toast to that.

If you’re looking to “dust your shoulders off and let your hair down” anytime soon, the Tuxedo fellas will be hitting the road for a North American tour starting in late July. Pre-sale tickets go on sale for the tour today (5/15) for those who subscribe to the Mayer Hawthorne or Tuxedo mailing lists, while tickets go on sale to the casuals/ general public on Friday the 17th. You can grab tickets over on their website.

Typing up all the show notes this week for once because I love you, fam. 

Typing up all the show notes this week for once because I love you, fam. 

YES! I'M ACTUALLY DOING SHOW NOTES FOR THIS WEEK! #sorrynotsorry but like I said in this week's episode I've been dealing with a bit of blogger burnout and even though doing the show is very therapeutic for me when you see how thorough I intend to be moving forward you will understand why I put this off for as long as I could. Again, I really appreciate those of you who listen and never get the promised show notes. NO MORE BROKEN PROMISES! Just quality #content in addition to a bunch of other new things in the works right now. 

Hope you enjoyed this weeks show! Feel free to drop a comment here or hit me up on Twitter. I'd love to hear what you thought of this week's picks!

Until next week!

<3

@kibbe!

[Listen] Brother Ali - "Mourning in America" x "Stop The Press"

If you are a huge hip hop fan, you should be tuning into all the great releases Rhymesayers has put out this year like I Self Devine's The Sound of Low Class Amerika, Aesop Rock's latest Skelethon or the recently announced P.O.S. album We Don't Even Live Here. And next month RSE is about to do it again with Brother Ali's forthcoming album Mourning in America and Dreaming in Colour dropping Sept. 18th and produced in it's entirety by Jake One, you may remember him from such tracks as Rick Ross' "3 Kings" featuring Dr. Dre and Jay-Z, producing half of Brother Ali's latest free EP The Bite Marked Heart and his collaborative album with Freeway, The Stimulus Package.

Peep out 2 tracks off Ali's upcoming album, the first being his latest single "Mourning in America" and the latter "Stop The Press" which we featured on June's SKoA blog mixtape. Anything from Ali is always promising and quite enjoyable and these new cuts are no exception. Make sure you pick up the new album when it drops next month which you can pre-order here.
