Jeremih’s “Late Nights” have been on constant rotation on my iPhone. I am not usually a R&B fan especially today’s music which falls short from the music from the 90’s but Jeremih’s album is quite amazing. The music production is very eclectic that helps to create a certain atmosphere throughout the entire album. Jeremih’s vocals are on a whole other level as it changes constantly to fit the song.
“Feel like Phil” features a beat that seems to evoke the late night feel that Jeremih is going for. It is dark sounding and quite eerie. Check it out above.
Explosions in the Sky is back!! The Texas post-rock band will be releasing their new album “The Wilderness” this April and they have shared the first single “Disintegration Anxiety”. The song features a new sound from the band which has elements of math rock and electronica. Check it out above.
Waiting till Young Thug drops ‘Slime Season 3’ I have been checking out his single “Paradise” from his upcoming debut album ‘Hitunes’. As usual Thugger’s eccentric vocal style and lyrics stand front and center on the track. One of his humorous lines is when he says “Rolly Polly Olly N*gga/ I got three stripes and I ain’t bowling n*gga”. Check it out above.
Tame Impala seems to always produce amazing records that is impossible to not feel like you are transported to whole other world. Their psychedelia is mind opening and leaves you in an energetic and bouncy mood. “The Less I Know the Better” is from their new record “Currents” and is features Kevin Parker’s hazy vocals with a funky beat. Check it out above.
Here is another single by Joey Bada$$ from his record “B4DA$$”. “Christ Conscious” is one of my favorite songs from the album with its amazing beat and Bada$$’s flow. Check it out above.
Jon Hopkins is a master at creating ambient music that completely takes you in. It is both relaxing and inspiring with its mesmerizing sounds. I came across his music a few months ago and it has been the soundtrack to many of my writing sessions.
“Sun Harmonics” is one of my favorite tracks off of Hopkins’ album “Immunity”. It creates a heady state of mind that feels close to meditation. Check it out above.
