Here’s an in studio performance of Aloe Blacc‘s upcoming album Good Things. You don’t get much music like this anymore. Aloe’s music comes across like that of an old soul – someone whose words have been stirring for years and come out with intentions deeper than a hit song, although he’s got that too with “I Need A Dollar“, which turned into a sensation after being used for HBO’s How To Make It In America.

Aloe might have a kind of old school sound wise beyond its years, but it fills a gap that today’s music is missing and I think he’ll be welcomed among the kids who are sick of hearing words like “swag” and seeing careers based on images and catch phrases. Good call, Stones Throw.

And here’s a direct mp3 link to another song from the album: Aloe Blacc – “Femme Fatale”
