The Smiths have been on constant replay wherever I go. I have come to realize that my favorite song of theirs is “What Difference Does it Make?” with its striking guitar riff and Morrissey’s captivating vocals. Check it out above.
I am not really a fan of Rae Sremmurd but when I heard “Black Beatles” I had to post it to this blog. The song is really catchy and the chorus really bangs. Check it out above.
There are a lot of bands that are re-creating 80’s music with their own interesting spin. Porches fits into this category with their synthpop sound that is reminiscent of New Order and Depeche Mode. The band released their second album “Pool” earlier this year and it is an amazing record that is arguably one of the best albums of the year. “Be Apart” is one of the singles from the album that has an interesting music video to go along with it . Check it out.
Whitney released their amazing debut album “Light Upon the Lake” earlier this year which features a collection of alt-country and indie folk songs. One of the best tracks from that record is “Dave’s Song” with its horn section and soulful vocals from lead singer Julien Ehrlich. Check it out above.
Jamie Isaac is an exceptional musician who has a unique sound that blends jazz and electronica. In this video he performs two songs from his new album “Couch Baby” with his band. Check it out.
Jamie Isaac came to my attention from King Krule who mentioned him in an interview about who he listens to. The two have even collaborated on several tracks. Isaac makes moody electronica/alternative R&B music that fits perfectly for the late nights.
“Find the Words” is Isaac’s new song with its downtempo sound that blends so perfectly with his voice. Check it out.
I have been listening to The Smiths a lot within the past three weeks. I sometimes forgot just how smart they were and why their music is so popular. “Rubber Ring” is one of their best songs with its post-punk sound and Morrissey’s ethereal voice. Check it out.
