The Avalanches did it their way and recruited Danny Brown and MF Doom on ‘Frankie Sinatra’. Moksha and Jesse both put it straight to the top of the top ten lists, then fell in love with the rest of the album, Wildflowers as well. While not a rap album, ‘Frankie Sinatra’ is a rap song and lead a strong crop of rap music in our songs of the day. Blu and Nottz, Skinny and A-F-R-O and Marcopolo all made our songs of the day for the week. Jessarae, Hannah Grace and Jeff Beck were the other songs to round out the songs of the day list for this week.
