Fears about the new album from DJ Shadow are slowly alleviating for me. "I'm Excited" features a bouncing, galloping, dancey beat and an infectious "I'm excited" refrain between verses from Afrikan Boy. This is nothing like Endtroducing..., which is finally OK, because this track is a place I actually like going to.
This is a wonderful Friday afternoon gift, if you ask me, cause it makes me want to leave work now and get the party started. Check it:
"I'm Excited" goes on sale August 1, and the new full length, "The Less You Know The Better," is out September 5.
