Today’s Streams – The Lonely Island & Beck, Vin Diesel & Arthur Russell, Odd Future

The Lonely Island – still funny? Having sat through the entire forthcoming album ‘Turtlenecks And Chains’ yesterday the NME jury’s still out on that. We like a bit of comedy rap as much as the next infant, but it works best in small doses. So here’s a small dose, featuring Beck (who ought to stop messing and just get back in the studio for the day job), called ‘Attracted To Us’.

The Lonely Island

In an even (albeit unintentionally) funnier link-up, a teenage rapper Mark Sinclair (now better known as blockbuster knucklehead Vin Diesel) tries to lay down some lyrics over a beat from Arthur Russell, back in 1986. Yes, that Arthur Russell. The recently-unearthed snippet is as bizarre as it sounds – Stream on Soundcloud.

Finally, a new Odd Future track, ‘Analogue’, recorded during Zane Lowe’s show that seems them behave themselves more than usual and even features a nod to Dawson’s Creek.
