Sweetest Drip indie playlist - 2011 December 05

Introducing Indie Playlist Mondays.

Every week, we’ll share ten new tracks and videos that make us say yay!
Allow us to complement your growing indie playlist with some of the sweetest tunes.
We don’t rate with numbers because everything is cat-approved.


01. ASAP Rocky – Peso (Star Slinger Refix)

ASAP Rocky – Peso (Star Slinger Refix) by Star Slinger

Reuel: Irresistible to pretty motherfuckers worldwide, this refix is sure to make more than hands clap. This is another one of Star Slinger‘s signature booty beats, with Rocky going off in full V8.


02. Sir Michael Rocks feat. Shorty K & Tris J – Too Short Back

Reuel: This is one of those videos where the song and visuals come together like rubber bands and cash money. Hermès sweater? Tenille is beyond 10.


03. Freddy Gibbs and Madlib – Thuggin’

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Thuggin’ by Rappcats

ReuelEven if you haven’t given Freddie Gibbs a listen or if your virgin ears have yet to be touched by a Madlib production, there’s no denying that Thuggin’ feels so good. Feels so right.


04. Contact Lens – MIX 1 (BLACK FRIDAY)

ReuelContact Lens is celebrating his first anniversary on Tumblr! I hope your Black Friday ’11 was pleasant. I felt playing MIX 1 was much more appealing than — forget it shall we continue with the sweetest indie playlist?


05. Fallulah – Out Of It (Monsieur Adi Remix)

Fallulah – Out Of It (Monsieur Adi Remix) by Monsieur Adi

Howard: I love Fallulah. I don’t know who she/they are, but they make me want to pour sexy oil over myself and light a match. Monsieur Adi’s touch-ups make it that much more slick.


06. Oxford – Unicorn At Night

Oxford – Unicorn at night by Oxfordsounds

Howard: It’s cold, the morning suns peeking in, and you look so feisty still.


07. Jagwar Ma – Come Save Me

Roddy: I don’t know much of Jagwar Ma, but I know I’m a sucker for 60s hooks. It’s impossible not to feel like dancin’ and smilin’ to this tune. For now, I’ll keep posted on the Aussies’ SoundCloud.


08. Avec Avec – Kuzuha no Sunday (ep ver)

Howard: Rerax.


09. DJ Shadow feat. Little Dragon – Scale It Back (Robotaki Remix)

Howard: If you haven’t heard of DJ Shadow or Robotaki yet, here’s a primer: Thrusting.


10. Shantelle – Unamonos

Roddy: Killer tune, illest vid. You don’t even need to know Spanish to appreciate it. Shantelle is doing it right! Show some luv!

We’ll be sure to keep your seat warm and the groove intact until next week’s indie playlist — Sweetest Drip got yer back.
