Pool Party rained out & new Jay Electronica (ft. on Curren$y track)

No Cap’n Jazz. No No Age. No Lightning Bolt. I did catch a little bit of The Death Set though and they ruled. The show got moved from Williamsburg Waterfront to Brooklyn Bowl. This may sound familiar. Last summer the epic No Age/Dan Deacon/Deerhunter show was supposed to be at Williamsburg Waterfront but also got moved due to storm bullshit to Brooklyn Bowl. I was lucky (and patient) enough to catch the 2nd show of two that those bands played due to high demand. It was unreal. This time I didn’t feel like reliving the grueling waiting process, unsure if I’d even get in, while standing in the rain. So I booked it. Mistake? Maybe. The Jelly people seem to suggest it was a good show. Cap’n Jazz are officially playing tonight at Maxwell’s in Hoboken. It may even be going on as I write this. I wish I had the foresight to at least go to that. A real shame. Anyway, all this is not without good news.

Curren$y has a new track out from the album Pilot Talk, out on Roc-A-Fella. It features Mos Def and Jay Electronica and it’s really fucking good. The backing track is awesome. It perfectly combines an old school sound with a distinctly modern feel. Mos Def may be the highlight on the track, that is until Jay comes in and destroys it. Then, wait a second, Mos comes back in and knocks it out the box (Mos, knock ’em out, Mos). It’s a great song, if you haven’t gotten that yet from my description. Listen to it below.

Here’s to wishing I saw Cap’n Jazz.
