Tunesday: "Landing On A Hundred," Cody ChesnuTT

Instead of typing a coherent blog post about some music, I am entrenched in an online course I'm taking through my work. It's not very exciting — finance and accounting. Until recently, these were topics I had very little grasp of; I'm still not an expert, but it's nice to have a better understanding.

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.
