#14: DJ Shadow (ft. Run The Jewels) – Nobody Speak

 

A new DJ Shadow album always brightens the music world up a little, and this year’s ‘The Mountain Will Fall’ was arguably his best since his legendary 1996 debut. This lead single gave us the first indication that something special might be coming, opening with that descending guitar arpeggio that calls to mind Johnny Kidd & The Pirates’ ‘Shakin’ All Over’. Managing to secure the services of RTJ was a masterstroke, and a testament to Shadow’s respect and sway in the industry. This track is great, the album is even better, don’t let it pass you by.
