As 2014 fast approaches, we reflect back on the year in music… and oh what a year it was. Some incredible albums were released this year that will remain on playlists for years to come. There were some exceptional hip-hop releases this year that hopefully will help shape the sound of hip-hop to come in the upcoming years. Without further ado, here’s our list, and as we have in the past, we’ve included some new live audio for each artist selected…
A few weeks ago we posted a video we recorded of Asher performing “Common Knowledge” with his band at the Gramercy Theater in NYC. As promised, we’re revisiting this show with some exclusive MP3 downloads from the set. Looks like Chrismtas came a bit early this year for any Asher Roth fans out there. Check out a bunch of streams/downloads below.
ATWL was in the building tonight and we recorded this video of Asher Roth performing “Common Knowledge” with his band at the Gramercy Theater in NYC. Check back later for some more treats from the show.
As we head into the final days of 2011, its time to reflect back on the musical releases this year and examine the best music from the past 12 months. Compiling this list was no easy task as it was a year stacked with quality releases. As with last year, since the focus of this site is always live music and we’re discussing studio albums, we’re providing a new live song from each artist who made the list.
Asher Roth took some time out of his college parties and blunt cruises to take a trip across the pond to rock the stage at the Lowlands Festival last month. His high energy set was a treat, hear it for yourself courtesy of this soundboard recording.
Asher Roth brought his college, frat boy antics to the heart of Times Square a couple of weeks ago for a stop on The Great Hangover Tour. His set was really entertaining, with tons of hilarious props including a huge fake joints, a tiny fisher price go kart, lion costumes and more. But all sillyness aside, he does put on a good show, backed by DJ Wreckineyez and a drummer. Check out our exclusive recordings below of “La Di Da”, “Sour Patch Kids”, “Be By Myself” and “I Love College” with a surprise appearance from Jim Jones.
