It's Raining Clouds

Song: It's Raining Clouds
Artist: Blockhead
Album: The Music Scene

Blockhead (James Anthony Simon) is an NYC-based hip-hop producer best known for his work with Aesop Rock. "The Music Scene" is his fourth album for the London indie label Ninja Tune. I've been listening to this album a lot at work. I'd best describe it as trip-hop, maybe nu-jazz. A great mood/chillout record with lazy beats but a decidedly "street" feel. I'm often bored with albums of this ilk, but really dig this one. It's not attention grabbing, so no big hooky beats, etc. but I think it's a cut above the standard in moody hip-hop. Check it out.
