With fans everywhere suiting up to accompany Kid CuDi on his long-awaited lunar voyage, the left-of-center hitmaker is hoping to stoke the already tremendous buzz surrounding his debut’s Sept.15 release even higher with the release of his third single.  Debuted in the U.S. on last Friday’s episode of Late Night with David Letterman, The Pursuit of Happiness is a hip-hop (sort of) anthem with a hipster-rific pedigree.  CuDi’s sung verses have the same dissociative vibe here as on Day N Nite, but Brooklyn electronic duo Ratatat‘s dense, bass-heavy blend of synth swooshes and rhythmic piano chords results in a considerably more uplifting track than the artist’s breakout hit.  Topped off with indie-rockers MGMT‘s sing-along hook, TPoH serves as a climactic segue into Man on the Moon: The End of Day‘s final act.  Complications regarding the LP’s liner notes and iTunes coding prevented Kid CuDi from stepping into the Booth for his scheduled interview, but fans should be sure to read our own Nathan S.’ take on the debut album.
