So much new music! This is the first track off Atmosphere’s new album, Southsiders. A lot of my favorite Atmosphere songs have one hook or one sample that I find mesmerizing. In this case, it’s that muffled guitar/synth sound. I don’t know what makes it, but I can’t get enough.
A song to wake your week up. Bits of soul, hip-hop, and funk, all twisted together.
Sounds like some heavenly mix of Indian music, a little blues guitar, and an electronic beat. Yum.
We were listening to this at work the other day when a UPS driver came in and said he recognized it.”I love this beat.” It was background music until then, but his comment made me listen. Thanks UPS man. Next time I’ll ask your name. Until then, I’ll listen to more.
I posted another Robby Hunter Band song a while ago, but never actually listened to more of their music. What a dumb thing to do. The rest of their music is just as fun as “Hard On Me,” but still manages to be different enough from song to song to make the whole album interesting. […]
