Tunesday: "Landing On A Hundred," Cody ChesnuTT
While I study, I'm listening to Cody ChesnuTT's latest album, "Landing On a Hundred," which is streaming at NPR. Most folks will remember him as the hook singer for The Roots' 2.0 version of his song "The Seed." His new record is chill and the perfect soundtrack for my evening's pursuits. A mix of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, ChesnuTT has a fantastic voice, delivery and style. He's a throwback who does his own thing and isn't content with completely treading the same ground as his influences.
