Whether its pure hip hop (no watered down club hits, please) or some raw indie rock from the late 90s, check these three for some instant gratification.
1. Reality Check - Binary Star
Introduced by a friend (shoutout to Cappuccio), this one got me on the intro alone. I miss multi-genre fused hip hop, and what this track lacks in bells and whistles it makes up for in originality.
2. Puppet On A String - Detroit Cobras
Raw rugged and with that grunge-girl-growl you already know I can't resist, Detroit Cobras will always have a place in my heart, and this song is too perfect to pass up.
3. Incinerate - Sonic Youth
Still sonic after all these years. This one instantly brings me back to driving through Venice Beach with the windows down. That guitar is eternal.
