QUICKIES: NEW MUSIC, OLD SOUNDS EDITION

Justin Timberlake

Will.I.Am was too busy "gettin crazy" for this photo op.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE COLLABORATES WITH WILL.I.AM FOR TWO NEW TRACKS

While I’d much rather be reporting about new Justin Timberlake solo tracks, I guess these two collaborations with Will.I.Am will have to do (god, I hate typing names with embedded punctuation).  The second song “Going Crazy” (man, Will.I.Am just loves to party and get wild, doesn’t he?!?!) is garbage, as expected, but the first one, “Nature of the World,” actually has a very cool groove, reminiscent of early nineties’ Tribe Called Quest.  But, of course, you still have to put up with Will.I.Am’s dopey political rapping overtop the beat, because when he’s not “getting retarded” or “going crazy” he means serious business, y’all…holla!  Come on, J-Timbs, you don’t need him.  Take that beat, and run!  [via Some Kind of Awesome]

ALT VERSIONS OF WEEZER’S PINKERTON B-SIDES SURFACE

Remixed versions of two outtake tracks that appeared on Weezer’s recent Pinkerton reissue have been released, and you can hear them here.  It’s easy to understand why the tracks, entitled “I Swear It’s True (Crushing Version)” and “You Won’t Get With Me Tonight (Crushing Version),” didn’t make the cut for the album, but it should go without saying that the songs are better than 97% of the crap Weezer have been regurgitating over the last ten years.  [via Antiquiet]

ANOTHER NEW BEASTIE BOYS TRACK EMERGES

A new track off the upcoming Beastie Boys Hot Sauce Committee Part Two album was premiered on BBC 1 yesterday (listen here), and it’s making its internet rounds today.  “Tadlock’s Glasses” is laid back and doesn’t hold a candle to last week’s “Make Some Noise” (and really, what can?), but it’s refreshing to here them experimenting again with a spaced-out sound that they merely touched upon in the early nineties.  [via Consequence of Sound]
