Songs of the Week: “Her Majesty’s Socialist Request,” “Melding of the Minds,” and “Poem Found in the Pocket of an Amazon”


This is one of those weeks where just one song is not jumping out at me as THE song of the week, but there are a handful of contenders, so I’m just going to throw out a grab bag of songs of the week.  No commonalities here other than I would probably like these songs for their titles alone.

“Her Majesty’s Socialist Request” – RJD2

This track by Philadelphia-based producer RJD2 is a great sonic piece of instrumental electronica/hip-hop.

“Melding of the Minds” – Deltron 3030 (featuring Zach De La Rocha)

I was already drawn to the sound of this track which is reminiscent of 90’s era political rap at it’s most ardent, but the guest appearance of Rage Against the Machine’s Zach De Lo Rocha put it over the top.

“Poem Found in the Pocket of an Amazon” – My Bubba

Mellow out now with My Bubba, an Icelandic/Swedish folk duo, whose quirky slow tunes remind me of Jolie Holland

 

What are you listening to this week?  The floor is open.
