Ain't Nobody is the second EP taken from the new Pax Volumi album (Tru Thoughts 2013), and includes one instrumental unreleased on the full-length album. The title track was made famous by the great Chaka Khan, and Youngblood's amped-up version is an instant dance-floor classic. The second track, 'Ê la ê', is a strange and wonderful beast: an instrumental hip-hop song that is equal parts Brazil, New York, and New Orleans. It sounds like winning. The final track, 'The Plank Will Nod, and You Will Go', is a hip-hop (ish) song dedicated to and inspired by the late author David Foster Wallace, liberally quoting, referencing, and meditating on his work, life, and tragic death. 'Plank' takes us through spoken anomalies, rapid-fire rhymes, a sing-song bridge, and an explosive chorus, but manages to still sound like a single message. The instrumental for 'Plank' crackles with stacked horn harmonies and hidden drum beats. 1. Ain't Nobody 2. Ê la ê 3. The Plank Will Nod, and You Will Go 4.
