 Good Things is the 2nd album for California native Aloe Blacc, released by Stones Throw Records.

Following on from his well-received debut album, Shine Through, also on Stones Throw, the Good Things album marks a shift in methodology from personal to political for Aloe, who refers to the project as his report on present conditions.

Names such as Gil Scott-Heron, Gnarls Barkley, Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers & Curtis Mayfield have been bandied about in describing Good Things, but Aloe is a true modern original, telling today’s stories with an eye towards positive social change.

Song titles such as You Make Me Smile & Miss Fortune, coupled with airy, ethereal production from Truth & Soul Records’ main-men Leon Michels & Jeff Silverman mask a foreboding undercurrent in which Aloe crafts deep lyrics both thoughtful & thought-provoking.

Nowhere is this more evident than on lead single & massive cult track, I Need A Dollar - commissioned by HBO as the theme music for the smash hit US TV series How To Make It In America.
