[JustBurnIt!] TBE Presents: I’m A Bulldog – A mix for NYC

60 Seconds in Times Square - 8/21/2006

A native New Yorker said to me yesterday, upon returning from a long absence from his city, “Damn, this city is unstoppable. It never dies.” True. True. While I did not grow up in NYC, I began spending chunks of time here at 3 and always had an affinity for this New York. Although I always said I could never live in such an intense place I ended up living here for two very formative post-college years. On the occasion of my visit to such a seminal city I don’t have pithy words, but I do have a mix tape. A mix tape for NYC. A love letter, a complaint letter, a letter from one man to his former home. Well ok, so maybe it’s not really a letter at all. It’s just a damn mix-tape, a collection of my favorite songs about NYC. Burn it for your subway commute or for your next visit to The Big Apple. Or just download it because you like good music. What are your favorite songs about NYC?

The title is taken from Kyle Andrews’ “Naked In NYC” and reflects the quoted sentiments of the New Yorker above.

Kyle Andrews – Sushi

Alright, start prepping some fresh panties NOW cause this one made me wet for sure. Who the fuck is Kyle Andrews and how did he make this killer song without it taking over the world and ending racial conflict forever? This morning I almost killed myself dancing in socks on my tile floor. Now don’t let the day-glo ghettoblaster cover art and hyper-hypo dance pop fool you, Real Blasty digs deeper than your average laptop-rock and unearths all kinds of weighty rock. Varying his jams between different tempos, vibes, and energy levels Kyle provides much more to chew on than iceberg lettuce of most one-man-bands or laptop-rock shticks. Go to his MySpace and sample some more jams. I’m curious what you cats think or this dude.

UPDATE: Oooo, now I am digging this nugget as a good counter-point to “Sushi.”
