Aloe Blacc - I Need A Dollar

. Tuesday, April 6

Last time I mentioned a TV show it was Glee. A programme that won't be embarrassing to admit liking (Glee is still great btw) in six months time however is How To Make It In America. Made by HBO and the team behind Entourage it's set in New York and shows two guys hustling their way out of boredom and middling jobs towards a better future. The first season just finished in America this weekend but I'd reccomend you track it down. Apparently HBO are undecided on a second season but with a theme tune as great as HTMIIA's they'd be fools to pass it up.

Aloe Blacc does vintage like no other. When I heard 'I Need A Dollar' on the shows opening credits I assumed it was a lost classic. In fact it is from this year. It sets the perfect tone for the show and features in this mixtape made by HBO to promote the show. Including tracks by The xx, Phoenix, Lupe Fiasco, Yacht and show star Kid Cudi it's a perfect accompaniment to one of the freshest things I've seen in months.
