When I got home yesterday my copy of Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Pinata was waiting for me. This is what I will be playing today. All fucking day.
I listened to it a couple times again yesterday and have become all about it. There's two songs I don't especially like, but 95% of the album is great. I'd like to hear it on vinyl.
I put it on last night but my brother-in-law came up for his birthday and it was hard to hear any of the music. He was being a loud 22 year old drunk. Listened to it while running this morning and right now on Bose headphones and it sounds really good. Love that Freddie is still gansta as ever but he is flowing over those smooth Madlib beats. Cool combo. Kinda like salty and sweet.

Yesterday I went to the beginning of a Stone brewer's night in Bellingham. I was able to get in three pints before the fantasy baseball draft.
Enjoy By 4/20/2014 IIPA Go To IPA Russian Imperial Stout
All three of them are top notch beers. I pretty much always expect Stone beers to be delicious (other than Arrogant Bastard...never got into that one). The Enjoy By series is fantastic if you guys haven't tried any of them yet. The Go To IPA is a session IPA. Coming in at under 5% ABV it would be the perfect Sasquatch beer. I just have no idea where to get my hands on bottles of that one. The Russian Imperial Stout was FANTASTIC. Any of you stout fans out there should put that one on your wish list.
I have been checking my mailbox OCD style waiting for this to arrive. It is driving me crazy! I haven't heard it yet. What do you think?
I'm digging the album quite a bit. Madlib's productions are all so perfect, and Gibbs does really well on the vocals on pretty much everything. I recommend it.
Madlib is amazing. Have you had a chance to check out any of his medicine show series? I read an interview with Rolling Stone and Madlib said he just passed a bunch of CDs of rough cuts to Gibbs and told him to pick the ones he could vibe to. Freddie then recorded the vocals on his own and mailed them back to Madlib. Madlib then polished it and put a bow on it.
