The Streets - ***end of the year and cheers***
Merry Christmas, Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy whatever and a very Happy New Year. This is from my buddy Mike Skinner. Can't wait for the new album 'Computers and Blues'
Computers and Blues is reportedly the final album that Mike Skinner will make under the Streets moniker. On the website for the album, Skinner describes it variously as "45 minutes of 130 bpm style straight spittin'," "dancing music to drink tea to," and "influenced by the future." Leading up to its release, Skinner distributed several tracks via his Twitter account, saying "I can't be bothered with all this trying to sell you music. It wastes valuable time." Whether or not these tracks will be included on the album, they make it clear that he is trying to steer his project back toward the Original Pirate Material glory days before he calls it quits.
