Revolutionary Plastics Hour: Volume Twenty-Seven

Back again for more nonsense, chicanery, monkeyshines, malarkey, hi-jinks & shenanigans. This week’s crop mixes pop, dance, rap & more. Well, actually, that’s about it. There’s a “block” (I think four songs constitutes a block) of tracks with production by NYC independent hip-hop stalwart El-P; personally, I think his beat on “Night Work” is maybe his best ever? Top three, anyhow.

The first half of the show is a little choppy, for which I blame Ritchie, the friendly gent who does the show before me. We got to talking, & anyone who knows me is aware that I can’t actually do two things at once. Something had to go, & that turned out to be competent segues. But the second half? Man, I have to admit, I am very pleased about the suave smoothness with which I meshed the rap tracks together. Seriously, I am not that good, but it sounds sweet. (Or at least, it did at the time. I haven’t listened back yet.)
