Hey guys! It’s me again and I got another mix for you to add to your collection! “The Second Shift” provided by our very own member of The Hive Society: Third World TV, is a 63 minute mix that one could say was inspired by the commute of the working class. To describe this mix, this is what he had to say:

“[The Second Shift is] Like driving through a highway over an hour’s course, the music’s pace and mood changes just like a city does. A happy listening experience for those leaving or starting their second shifts.” – Third World TV

Shout-out to all those that work a second shift, or any extra shifts! Your grind will pay off! Third World TV has a perfect mix that starts off slow as you shower up and wipe the sleep from your eye. It picks up a bit by the time you make it your transportation and head out. By the time you’re halfway to work, you’ve probably started fist pumping already! By the time you’re walking into your place of employment, everyone will be staring at you wondering why you are two-stepping happily into work. Music has that power. Have a good day at “the J-o-b” y’all! Let us know what you think of the tunes!

Strut (Self-released, 2010)

Strut, created by the enigmatic musician/photographer/beard enthusiast Third World, is either a beat tape or simply an instrumental. Either way, it is an elegant, dazzling bit of musicianship, and one of the most underappreciated music projects of 2010. It's not entirely devoid of words; there are occasional samples from sound banks, but they are auxiliary components, supplementing the music rather than overtaking it.

Yallmustaforgotability: 100 percent

True story: We've probably listened to this tape 65 times since last year, listened to it front to back, front to back over and over again. We couldn't tell you the name of one single song on there. That's probably one of the drawbacks of not have any words.

Best Song on the Album: What's good about this album is that all of the songs sort of ooze into each other. There are a few stops, but mostly they feel natural and organic. One of the great things about this album, though, is that the songs are different enough that they each possess their own identity. And the one with the best identity is the warm, soulful, inescapable charm of "Like Sunshine." It is, as it were, like sunshine.

Most Unexpected Moment on the Album: At the beginning of "Cold Tone," a man, sounding man large, begins shouting about liking to "party and bullshit." He does it again and again and again. You regret it immediately if you happen to be listening to it while eating dinner with your judgmental in-laws.

What This Album Might Actually Be About: Something about freedom. Something about anti-commercialism. Something about rock and roll. Something about velvet. Something about a department store in the seventies. Something about existentialism. Something about being big and little at the same time.

Obscure Fact(s) You Can Pawn Off As Your Own So As To Sound Smart: The cover of the album is a picture that Third World took while in New York. The girls on the cover just so happened to be from Houston. It all happened completely by accident.

In person, Third World talks like Allen Iverson used to dribble. There are bursts and unexpected pauses and stutter steps. It is the complete opposite of his music.

The man shouting curse words before "Cold Tone," that's Gil Scott-Heron. He tends to do that. - Shea Serrano


Still working on that hot first release.
