Watchmane: How I Got Over by the Roots
I'm really digging the new Roots single "How I Got Over" The video's pretty cool, very tasteful and straight forward. I do wish that the Roots would get more videos that compliment their sound as much as their content/lyrics. The track itself is pretty classic roots fare: Fela-ish keys and drums, conscious and fun lyrics, soulful singing. I always love the sense of honesty and playfulness the Roots bring to their music. Definitely a nice change of pace from the vast majority of the music you hear right now.
