Let’s keep the love going for the dearly departed Adam “MCA” Yauch by featuring a song from their latest album, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2. The group have always pushed their sound into new and interesting territories, including funk, jazz and punk rock. Even so late in their career they showed willingness to be open as artists and push their sound to new and interesting places by incorporating dub and reggae influences.
“Don’t Play No Game I Can’t Win” features the versatile and pleasing voice of Indie darling Santigold, sweetening the chorus and turning this number into a sure-fire summer jam. As always it features clever lyrical wordplay and if you listen closely, even a Bob Dylan lyric reference. Listen to this number by the pool, hanging out with friends and raise a glass for MCA.
