I forgot I had downloaded this song a couple weeks back and re-found it today. Brooklyn singer Doe Paoro’s “Born Whole” is both influenced by Indian sounds as well and as R&B. Over flowing with down-tempo melodies, soulful vocals and decorative piano tunes. Slow To Love was released February 14, 2012.
bahhhhh I love this girl. I stumbled on this while I was on The Fader today. Such an ideal song for a Monday. Virginia singer and producer Kid A describes so much in such a simple song. “BB Blue” was originally on Kid A’s previous album PPONEY OST which came out summer of 2011- deals with isolation, love gone sour and dreamy landscapes tunes. This new remastered version of “BB Blue” is lovely. Looking forward to her new album BLCKSECHLL.
Shlohmo - Rained The Whole Time (Nicolas Jaar Remix)
Perfect song to drop everything you have on your mind and get lost in a beautiful slow-moving oblivion. Nicolas Jaar making moves and getting up my another one of my favorite L.A. producers Shlohmo. “Rained The Whole Time” is creative and incorporates a lot of Jaar minialist approach to music. Shlohmo’s Vacation EP will be out on Friends of Friends on February 28 and will feature amazing artists such as Nicolas Jaar, Airhead, Salva and Groundislava.
Kendrick Lamar – Cartoon & Cereal ft. Gunplay (Prod. by THC)
Whoa, I haven’t heard a track this dope in a while. I mean this is insanely good. Definitely bizarre but innovative, creating mind-blowing beats and the words just flow. And of course Gunplay adding his a raw verses. You can’t help bobbing your head and getting lost in the 7 minute piece…. unreal.
PLEASE do yourself a favor and check out this band….because whoa- I saw these guys last night at Book & Stage at The Cosmo and they were incredible. I needed a little soul back in my life and man did I get it. Nick Waterhouse is a vintage R&B and rock singer out of San Francisco. I absolutely love his sound, his ability to recreate that soulful gritty sound of the 60’s is astounding. His EP Is That Clear is out now.
“I Can’t Stay” is a fresh single from Cut Copy’s bassist Ben Browning new solo project. His EP, Lover Motion, is going drop on March 19 via Cutters label. Definitely sounds like Cut Copy to me. Lover Motion will feature Gus Franklin and Haima Marriott from Architecture in Helsinki as well as Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford. Looking forward to this release, going to be a good one!!
can not get enough of this Toronto duo. the perfect blend of darkness, murky synth-pop beats, and dreary vocals. seriously obsessed and beyond excited for their LP, TRST, coming out on February 28 on Arts & Crafts.
I saw these guys live a while back in San Diego and ohhhh man they were good and I’ve been watching them to see what they do ever since. “Shallow” their new track will be on their upcoming 7” via Captured Tracks… just keep these guys in mind, out of the hazy surf-rock bands out there, Beach Fossils is one of my favorites.
These two guys together is pure genius. “Destiny” is the second track off John Talabot’s album ƒin which will be out on February 7 via Permanent Vacation. “Destiny” was half produced half in Barcelona and half in Pional’s studio in Madrid. So smooth… totally diggin this guy right now.
