Can’t just pick one today. Palms Out Sounds has a great recurring feature: Sample Wednesday, songs that have been sampled by hip-hop artists. And this week features the best of Pharoahe Monche whose sampling of “Godzilla vs Mothra” in “Simon Says” is my favorite use of sampling of all time.
Instrumental Analysis also has a great recurring column: Throwback Thursdays, a look back at the career of a seminal artist from the 80’s and 90’s. This week features lots of classic songs from The Pixies.
