Lil Uzi Vert: XO Tour Life

I know a lot of people hate on Lil Uzi Vert, but I am a fan of the young rapper. His music is very catchy and features some of the most creative beats that instantly hooks you in. You literally can’t help but bounce to his music even if you want to hate it.

“XO Tour Life” is a new song from Lil Uzi Vert and is much darker than his previous work. He raps about all of his friends being dead and wanting to die. Check it out.

 

Sunday Soul: Raphael Saadiq – Love that Girl

Raphael Saadiq is one of the greatest musicians the world has ever known. Saadiq has created some of the most popular and memorable tracks that have gone on to become classics in their own right. His timeless and versatile sound has garnered him many fans from every walk of life.

“Love that Girl” is one of the best songs from his album “The Way I See It.” The track harkens back to the 60’s Motown sound, but also reworks it to have a modern appeal. Check it out.

Moving Mountains: Full Circle

Moving Mountains has become my new favorite band over the past few months. I have listened to their entire discography over and over again, and also posted their songs on this blog. In that spirit, here is a great track from their second album “Waves” entitled “Full Circle.” The song starts off slow then completely explodes as vocalist/guitarist Greg Dunn stretches his incredible vocal range. Check it out.

American Football: Home Is Where the Haunt Is

American Football is one of the most revered emo bands of all time. Their self-titled album, which was released in 1999,  is considered a classic and is still talked about by many fans today.  The band finally released a follow-up to the record last year. The album is a joy to listen to as the band expands on their signature sound.

“Home Is Where the Haunt Is” is one of the best tracks from the record. It features vocalist/guitarist Mike Kinsella’s pensive lyrics and somber sound. Check it out.

Prawn- Settled

I first heard New Jersey band Prawn back in 2015, from their split with Moving Mountains. I have been listening to them on and off ever since.  Their songs have a way of sneaking up on you when you least expect it.

“Settled” is one of their best tracks that is from their EP of the same name. The song has a wonderful downbeat sound that features horns towards the end of the track. The music video is actually quite funny with its creepy main character. Check it out.
