Song Of The Day 1/18/2014: Menahan Street Band - "Tired of Fighting"

Menahan Street Band are based in Brooklyn and make magnificent instrumental R&B music for the Durham imprint of the Daptone label. They've been the backup band for Charles Bradley. Their music has been sampled for use by Jay Z, Kid Cudi, Gucci Mane and Curren$y. "Tired For Fighting," in fact, was sampled by Kendrick Lamar for his track "Faith." I'm ticked that I didn't grab a hold of their album Make The Road By Walking in 2008; it could have made everything better. They also released an album called The Crossing in 2012. It is biologically impossible for me to refuse this kind of music. It's like serum. I would put it on my salads.
