I’m really shitty at updating this on time. Luckily, it’s another free mixtape download, so hopefully that keeps you satisfied. It’s the long-awaited download of the VS. EP from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Hell yeah. Props to 2db for providing the linkage.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis let us hear “Otherside” a bit before the album dropped, and that’s what really got me excited about the release. As you may have assumed, the track involves a sample from the Red Hot Chili Peppers track of the same name. You can hear a version of them doing “Otherside” live on KEXP 90.3 right here. Seattle Show Gal did a little interview with them that can tell you a whole hell of a lot more about the EP than I can. Check it out.
“Irish Celebration” and “Vipassana” are two tracks I really liked off of the EP. That’s just a knee-jerk reaction, though. My favorites may very well change in the next few weeks. Either way, get the VS. EP. Support Macklemore. Support Ryan Lewis. It’s free.
