Kevin Smith movie music / New Music Friday: Brent Faiyaz, Killer Mike, The 1975 / Eliza Dushku quote

morning babble / Friday 07-08-22

This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!

It’s great having those 3-day weekends with the 4th being this past Monday. BUT – it never ends up feeling like a shorter week. They always feel longer. Welcome to Friday – we all deserved it . . . probably as early as Wednesday, but we got it now.

177 days until EXIT PLAN

Clerks 3 trailer is out and I’m excited – click here for that. Movie out this fall.

I’m excited for the music that Kevin Smith will use. His movie – Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back have two of my favorite uses of music in them. The first one is with Bon Jovi’s Bad Medicine.

I don’t know how much of that I can play. And then Shannon Elizabeth introduces her friends and they have their own song.

That’s Eliza Dushku on the right.

New Music Friday:

  • A guy with a great first name released his latest album today – Wasteland – I’m talking about Brent Faiyaz. Checks in at just over an hour and spread out over 19 tracks. Although, some of those tracks aren’t full blown songs . . . one is even listed as a “skit.” Nevertheless, there’s a bunch of guest appearances from Tyler, the Creator to Alicia Keys to Drake as well as The Neptunes. Again, Brent Faiyaz with Wasteland.
  • The 1975 have officially announced their next album. Being Funny in a Foreign Language. Today, we get one of the 11 tracks called “Part of the Band,” which arrives with a new video as well. Full album drop . . . October 14th.
  • Run the Jewels is one of my favorites to listen to. Half the group is Killer Mike, who is back with his first new solo song in 10 years. The single is called “Run” and features a guest verse from Young Thug as well as an introductory monologue by Dave Chappelle. There’s a video out and it portrays a narrative of Black people fighting against fascists attempting to return the South to the Confederacy. Killer Mike – keeping it real good . . . all the time.
  • Brent Favorite – Old Sea Brigade aka Ben Kramer shares his latest single “Stayed Up Late” – it’s off his third studio album – 5AM Paradise – which drops October 28th. He has that acoustic chill sound going for him that you would experience in a coffeehouse . . . or at least on a coffeehouse playlist. Overall, check him out at Old Sea Brigade.

Please subscribe on YouTube and spread the Babble wherever you can – Thank you!
