Cherée’s oooey gooey buttery voice is displayed throughout her newest track, “Just Like Me.” R&B vocals meld with a darker, experimental wavy hip-hop instrumentation that reminds me of SZA. Plus, the London starlit’s lyrics seem authentically personal while also being relatable at the same time.
Goldwash’s latest offering “Why Hide It” is warm, blissful and personal. We’ve been keeping a close eye on this artist for some time now, and the growth he’s displayed is truly remarkable. The first tune I heard from him is “But U Won’t” and his production value to songwriting has improved ten fold. Enjoy.
“Safe Place” by Jazz Morley is an easy listening track with a chilled out beat. Simple synths and mellow beats give this track a great structure. About the track, she says, “This is a love song written about where I live and who I have in my life. It marks a shift in my own mental health, happiness and creativity. Being a full-time musician, life can be exciting, spontaneous and hugely rewarding but also chaotic, unpredictable and at times, unstable. For the first time in my life, I am happy with who I am, and where I reside- next to the sea, along the beautiful Dorset coastline.” Personally, I think Jazz Morley will go on to really make a name for herself within downtempo pop.
Medasin’s remix of “Wild Thoughts” is all kinds of sexy. Stream it now and find someone to make out with immediately.
Jim-E Stack has a talent for creating songs that are as lonely as they are inviting, and “Moments Noticed” is no different.
Wearing black snapbacks and khaki slacks, how many racks could Brasstracks stack riding in a shellacked Cadillac while bumpin’ “Return of the Mack”?
(this song is amazing and one of Brasstracks’s best originals to date)
I’m pumped to kick Ezkiel’s latest track “West End” at the next house party I go to. I know this banger will get everyone dancing. There’s a delicate balance of the dark bass thumping throughout the track and the upbeat rhythms and melodies. Check it out.
My mom just walked into my office while I was listening to Brasstracks’s latest cover, and said, “This sounds like Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass.” Then we proceeded to watch a bunch of Herb Alpert videos on YouTube, and I played her more of those sweet, sweet Tracks of Brass. Anyway, my mom is a Brasstracks fan now, but quite honestly, who isn’t a Brasstracks fan?
By the way, my dad literally just walked downstairs and again, heard me as I was writing this post. As he passed, he said, “listening to a little Herb Alpert?” Basically, my parents are apparently big Herb Alpert fans, I have no idea why I haven’t played them Brasstracks before, ok goodnight
The song is jubilant and the video is minimalist, just the way I like them.
The drums are fast and the synths are slow and anthemic. This is the kind of song I could only fever-dream about after a day of binging on Mortal Kombat (Sega Genesis edition). zephyranthes treads unchartered territories on this track and I for one am blown away.
They should play this song at church.
Country music is really spreading its wings this year…
