Hamsterdam Sings About Birds, Not B**ches

[EDIT: Day two of this Hamsterdam. Feel free to go wild if you're home on this Valentine's Day. But seriously, don't click on MikJones24's Slamball link. I'm dead serious. Don't do it.]

In one of the random tangents that BHGP seems to foster so well, one of the commenters made a disparaging comment about English rappers (looking it up, that appears to be WaterlooChazz), and I'm here to defend a genre I apparently like quite well. The Hamdam title is actually a bastardization of a lyric from a song by The Streets comparing English rap to American (an entirely different and interesting topic that I won't go after right now), but I actually want to discuss and introduce Jamie T.

Jamie T is famous for doing pretty much all parts of the album himself in his basement, including the final mix, being slightly odd during the whole process, but making amazing, varied music. He's basically the British Beck. So here he is in all his weird and wonderful glory. But be careful: If you can get past the first 35 seconds or so of weird intro and get to the music and hook, you may end up hopelessly addicted to Jamie T like I am:

Calm Down Dearest - Jamie T. (via wesintx)
