This week was EASY. I mean, REALLY easy... Here we go.
1. Kanye West - Runaway
Plain and simple, Kanye West is back. I don't think anyone can deny the fact that he is incredibly talented. However, you could make a strong case that some people let fame and money get to their head, turning them into ginormous dickheads. Who would have thought a year after storming the stage, he would debut "Runaway" and be on such a hot streak. The G.O.O.D. Friday series has been killing it and I would be shocked if his album is not the biggest seller of the year. I'll give you the video, you can find the studio version right here. I give credit where credit is due and Flex dropped this exclusively.
2. Third Man Records "Triple Decker Record".
God bless Jack White. The man is trying his best to give fans and vinyl enthusiasts some real treats. This week he invented a new record, or at least an interesting format. The "Triple Decker is a 12" record that has a 7" inside it, literally inside it. You have to crack open the 12" to get to the 7". Only 300 were produced and they are going as high as $500 right now on ebay. Confused? Intrigued? Watch the video below. Also, if you get me one of these for Christmas, I'll love you forever...
3. Gayngs - "One More Try" (ft. Har Mar Superstar)
How do I explain this? Ryan Olson decides to make a band. He calls a bunch of friends, 22 to be exact. They make an album (Relayted, out now on Jagjaguwar) that sounds cheesy and have a prom-themed show in Minneapolis that Prince attends. The indie world is confused and taken back to a world of training bras and roller skates. As if that wasn't enough, they decide to cover George Michael. Want to see this live? They play the Metro at the end of the month. Expect some serious make-out sessions.
