And finally, “Oblivious” off of Jessica Lea Mayfield’s incredible new album, Make My Head Sing. I love every song on this album, but this one especially. It’s the first song and it just knocks you on your ass from the start.
Next, deep bass driven rock from the Peach Kings. Intense and echoing, kind of like Cat Power. Just beautiful.
I’ve been in a (new music) rut recently, for whatever reason, but in the last day I’ve realized that three of my favorite artists have recently put out music. I’ve been hitting repeat a lot. First, new from Little Dragon. Dreamy electro-pop topped with the beautiful, almost 90’s R&B voice of Yukimi Nagano.
Atmosphere – Bob Seger Atmosphere is so dramatic and dark. But/and I really like their sound and have yet to grow tired of it. This one’s newish to the world, new to me.
A song to wake your week up. Bits of soul, hip-hop, and funk, all twisted together.
I’m posting this song partly ’cause I genuinely like it and am as mesmerized by Lana’s voice as most people, and partly ’cause I don’t want to miss out on posting this song the day it debuts, even if thousands of others already have. Super cool.
Play this one right after the last one for maximum R&B dance party fun times. Flume’s ability to cross genres is seriously impressive.
