Let’s talk about Steve Lacy. California native, guitarist for the the Grammy nominated band the internet and now solo sensation. After honing his skills working on the Internet album Ego Death He dropped his first solo EP Steve Lacy’s Demo.

Cool – Zack Villere

13 March 2018

Zack Villere first caught my attention with his video for his song cool. A wonky electronic jam about feeling uncool. Zack paints the relatable picture of not being comfortable in your own skin and the self acceptance of owning yourself. Not only is the song super catchy but the video is the most awkward thing I’ve seen all year…

Blood Under My Belt – The Drums

6 March 2018

With spring break right around the corner I feel obligated to give you all an appropriate song for the week. Today I have The Drums – BloodUnder My Belt. A sun filled track filled with with your typical breakup lyrics.

Speaking Gently – BadBadNotGood

28 February 2018

Let’s talk about the Toronto based band Badbadnotgood. You’ve definitely heard them even if you didn’t realize it. They’ve worked with pretty much every big name artist. Kaytranada, Tyler The Creator, Daniel Caesar, Kali Uchis and even the Wu Tang Clan. These four Toronto boys have been busy pretty much since 2012 as they gained popularity being the go to guys when it comes to authentic jazz or R&B…

Call Me Up – HOMESHAKE

20 February 2018

When I first discovered this song I was blown away. With me recently getting into the indie scene I had a lot of ground to cover. This song always stood out to me and set a standard of creativity in the genre that I look for in other artists. This jazzy Lo-Fi electronic fusion was an undeniably great mix. Which was why Homeshake chose this as the lead single for his album Fresh Air.

On My Mind – Jorja Smith

13 February 2018

I’m back with more UK goodness this week with Jorja Smith & Preditah. On my mind is a groovy club track track with enough groove to make you move your feet. 

Sober – Mahalia

6 February 2018

The UK is is stacked with musical talent. So much so that I believe they have America beat in almost every genre. The next wave of great young artists will be mostly be from the UK. I could go down the list but I want to save some of these artists for future posts.

Violet – Daniel Caesar

29 January 2018

Daniel Caesar broke onto the mainstream scene with his breakout hit Get You. But for some including myself the song Violet. Now I’m not going to pretend that I knew Daniel Caesar before everyone else.  Violet was one of those songs that I stumbled upon and enjoyed but never payed attention to who the artist was. Two years later I put the pieces together and realized this was not an artist to overlook.

Mourn – Corbin

16 January 2018

If anyone was around for the Spooky Black era you’ve see how far this kid has come. He went viral with his hit song Without You at 16 years old. At the time we haven’t seen a kid look like him and sing like that in a while. He was our special little gem. Unfortunately he disappeared not too long after that…

Doses & Mimosas – Cherub

9 January 2018

I don’t know why I like this song. Maybe it feeds into my inner need to have haters. Everyone likes me to my knowledge. Or maybe I’m exactly the demographic for this song. People who are unapologetically themselves without thinking who they are annoying. I’d like to think I have the self awareness to know when I’m being an ass but based on my lack of knowledge of who hates me I’m probably wrong..
