Hip Hop Hooray (Leah)

January 30, 2015


The first month of 2015 is over, and I hope you are having a better year already than last year.  Has everyone already started their party-planning engines yet for SXSW? Bought but not cracked open the novel for that new genre-specific book club you joined? Gone to the gym for a week before realizing drinking heavily was still really important to your sanity? Tried out that hip new bar on the east side only to be confronted with the fact that you’re not young enough be to at the coolest places anymore and that you kind of detest the people that are? Cool, yeah, 2015 is going about the same for me.

Well, at least we still have music to tell us we’re cool, hip, and that people like us.  So below is my monthly bid for your affection.  Remember, you can hear songs like this live on the radio every Sunday from 2-3:30 PM on KOOP 91.7FM or
