Song of the Day: "Beggin and Pleadin."

There is something amazingly revelatory about this new song from Brandy. It's a straight out blues track and in it she is so fucking confident singing it that I am reminded of Shelby Lynne's rebirth in 1999.  Wonder whatever happened with her.

Song: "Beggin and Pleadin."
Artist: Brandy

Song of the Day: "Nobody Dies"

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down will be forever in my heart thanks to "Bag of Hammers."

Seriously, they'll have to do something really awful to use up all that esteem.
