The temperature is getting colder. The days are getting shorter. So you know what that means? It's about that time to switch out those summer crunk sounds from my Zen and add some more (um, sophisticated) chilled out grooves to the mix.

I might be late to this party on this one (aren't I always?), but I stumbled across Jneiro Jarel on the Ropeadope podcast album preview and was blown away. Three Piece Puzzle has been added to my CD wish list.

If you like anything that has come out of Philly in the past 10 years (or any Tribe Called Quest record), then you'll like this CD. No doubt. Even from this short little preview I can say that Jarel made the album that Little Brother wish they could've made.
