Birthday

Disclosure, Kehlani, Syd - Birthday

Oh babe oh babe
You’ve been on my mind
Just an old flame old flame
I left you behind
But oh if it were any other day
Maybe you’d want me to stay away
I'm just wonderin’ what you would say
Would be a big mistake

Can I call you on your birthday
Just to make sure that you’re ok
Would you prefer it if i go ghost
And let you go your own way
If I called you on your birthday
To make sure that you’re okay
Got the number to your old phone
But is it workin’

I aint even calling for no reconciliation
I just wanna tap it and see how you’ve been
I’ve waited for it

Adequate amount of time to give us both some space
I think it’s been good for us to stay up out the way
But it

Can’t hurt to check up on an ex, not to flex,
But to put the hurt to rest, put maturity to test

so I’m, calling to say, are you OK, On your special day?

Can I call you on your birthday
Just to make sure that you’re ok
Would you prefer it if i go ghost
And let you go your own way
If i called you on your birthday
To make sure that you’re okay
Got the number to your old phone
But is it workin’ (workin’, workin’)

If I called you on your birthday
Would it be worth it
Should I call you on your birthday
Do you deserve it?

Can I call you on your birthday
Just to make sure that you’re ok
Would you prefer it if i go ghost
And let you go your own way
If I called you on your birthday
To make sure that you’re okay
Got the number to your old phone
But is it workin’ (workin’, workin’)

The Internet: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

The Internet is both an anomaly and a sign of the times. No, I'm not talking about the actual Internet you're using to read this text (though that Internet is pretty special, too), I'm talking about the L.A. band featuring founding members Syd The Kid (vocals/production) and Matt Martians (keys/ production), as well as Pat Paige (bass), Jameel Bruner (keys) and Chris Smith (drums).

The band might just be the oddest thing to come from Odd Future, the collective known for its irreverence — and, of course, for making hip-hop. The Internet doesn't stand out from the rest of Odd Future because of any over-the-top antics, but because they make great R&B music. Beautiful, textured, enveloping R&B. Sure, the swagger of hip-hop is apparent in Syd's songwriting and the swing of the beats, but that doesn't mean it's adulterated — theirs is some of the most refreshing neo-soul to come out in years, and it's created by a band whose members were small children or not even born when the subgenre came to be in the mid- to late '90s. That's where the sign-of-the-times part comes in; while some decry the death of musicianship at the hands of samplers, drum machines and computer programs, we need look no further than the L.A. band for evidence to the contrary.

Seeing is believing, so the band stopped by NPR's D.C. offices for a Tiny Desk performance that'll give you a taste of the new Ego Death and a song from 2013's Feel Good. Watch the performance and put your Internet service to good use.
