Not sure how this hasn't made it onto the "indie" blogs yet. Maybe everyone's still too burnt out on "Young Folks" to take Peter, Bjorn & John seriously, but this free PB&J remix album curated by one Mick Boogie is pretty awesome. I threw it on my ipod shuffle (that's right, I use a shuffle) to listen to during kickball yesterday and it turned out to be the perfect soundtrack to outdoor activities on a late summer afternoon. Take it, it's free!

Download it here or here.

You might know Wale from last year's amazing Mixtape About Nothing. Well, he's got a new jam coming out entitled "Attention Deficit," and he just leaked an outtake from the album:

Brilliant, right? Ah, who am I kidding? If you even clicked the link, you're still waiting for it to download as you read this. Well, I assure you this is Thee Jam. Serious thinking-man's hip hop without sacrificing the almighty groove. If this is the kind of shit lying on the cutting room floor, I can't wait to hear the actual album, which drops on October 20. Mark your calendar.
