We here at On the Couch thought it might be nice to put together a list of great things to buy this holiday season for that music lover in your life. So without further ado we happily present On the Couch’s Santa List.
The Roots are releasing another album, undon, on Dec. 6th. This new project has sort of a refreshing twist, as it is a novel with a beat. The tracks are chapters in the short life of Redford Stephens (1974-1999). From what I understand the songs work back from his death to his birth.

It is Monday and I am having a tough time staying focused at work. We received some crazy news last night from the President. Still not sure how I feel about it, but I definitely know that I have witnessed something memorable.
Speaking of memorable, I can’t stop thinking about Jill Scott. Back in the middle of April she premiered the new video for “Shame” the first single off her upcoming album The Light of the Sun. To say that I have been anxiously awaiting something new from her is an understatement. She has officially posted an expected date for the album’s release, June 28th. PRE-ORDER NOW
After doing some snooping around some other blogs I found there was a recording of an appearance of Black Thought and Questlove on DJ Whoo Kid‘s radio show. It was a while ago, so most of the links that I had found were inactive. This only made me more determined to find it and my persistence payed off this week.
It isn’t much but I love hearing live freestyling, especially when it comes from a talented lyricist. The clip is a freestyle by Black Thought and Questlove gives him a beat on the table. Eventually Questlove drops a “Whoooooooooo Kid” in the background and Black Thought busts out. In order to salvage the set Whoo Kid gives Black Thought a beat and he brings it home.
