What Sound Looks Like

An ongoing series cross-posted from

Scored a half dozen hip-hop 12″s at Amoeba for the instrumentals. First up, Common and Mark the 45 King’s “Car Horn.” Next up, a pair of Beatnuts 12″ instrumentals: the so-so “Let’s Git Doe,” and the super “Find Us” (sweet guitar break) / “Hot” (stompin’). Followed by the Roots’ “You Got Me” (with Erykah Badu). The A-side instrumental is a little loungey, but the remix B-side makes it worth it. Whew. The Tajai (Souls of Mischief, Hieroglyphics) “Do It” (taut horns) will be the score of the haul. (Backed by anxious “The Weatherman.”) I could listen to that screech on Cypress Hill’s “How I Could Just Kill a Man” for an hour. The 12″ is the Spanish version, but the vocal hook is still in English in the instrumental. That’s on the B-side, along with “Another Victory,” of the 12″ of Cypress Hill’s “Worldwide.” And that’s today’s hip-hop haul.
