Pretty Lights: Fort Collins, CO
Talib Kweli: Brooklyn, NY
Two of my favorite artists of any genre released a collaboration back in July, and somehow I didn't find out about it until this past week. I am embarrassed. Checking the Pretty Lights website for new tunes had been a somewhat common ritual, but time got away from me. "Around The Block" is one of many, many (like a whole lot) of good tracks from PL's latest release A Color Map of the Sun, and one of the coolest things about Pretty Lights is that all of his music is available for FREE download on his website. That's hard to beat.
