NPR is streaming the full-length Cool Uncle (Bobby Caldwell and Jack Splash) album and you can listen to all 15-songs and hear their 1978 meets 2015 groove. The collaboration is the result of Caldwell’s wife reaching out to Splash via social media after she heard that he wanted to work with her husband. Cool Uncle is a continuation of Caldwell’s classic style with modern additions that compliment his sound instead of drowning him in an attempt to mimic contemporary artists.

“Can’t Get Enough Of Myself” is Santigold’s critique of selfie culture and the lead single from her 99 Cents album coming out in January. She explains the idea in a video on her website for a 3D Selfie Product Printer. 99 Cents is her third studio album and TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, Hit-Boy and iLoveMakonnen are some of the people who grace the project in some capacity. You can pre-order 99 Cents and download “Can’ Get Enough Of Myself” before the release of the full album.
