Chill Hip-Hop Playlist

Over the past few months, I have been working on a hip-hop playlist on Spotify. Not just any ole playlist, but a chill hip hop playlist. I have always wanted to create a playlist for just relaxing, walking home from work, or cruising in your car. “Hip Hop Chill: Take it Easy” playlist features some…

You Blew It!: Sundial Song

You Blew It’!’s Abendrot was one of my favorite records of 2016 as the band ventured into a more slower and mature sound. The entire album is a joy to listen to and I still find myself returning to the album over and over again. “Sundial Song” is one of the best tracks from the album with its…

Title Fight: Blush

Recently, after a long day at work, I have been listening to Title Fight on the way home. For some people decompressing might be the best way to relax after the mundanity of work, but I like to hear the roar of Title Fight’s music. I discovered this band two years ago and felt like…

RS #497 The White Stripes: We’re Going to Be Friends

For a long time, I listened to The White Stripes on a daily basis. I couldn’t get enough of Jack White’s guitar skills. White Blood Cells comes in at #497 on Rolling Stones Greatest Albums list. This record was fun to listen to after so many years. I still enjoy “We’re Going to Be Friends” the…

Do Make Say Think: Horripilation

Do Make Say Think has become one of my favorite post-rock bands with their versatile sound. This band seems to create some of the most reflective music that I have heard come out of the genre. It is music for decompressing and thinking about the meaning of life. On their new album Stubborn Persistent Illusions the band further…

Vince Staples: Big Fish

  Vince Staples news is always good news. Last Thursday, Vince dropped a new single from his forthcoming album Big Fish Theory entitled “Big Fish.” The song follows in the footsteps of his Prima Donna EP with its electronic sound. Check it out.

RS #498 The Stone Roses – Waterfall

I had heard so much about The Stone Roses over the years that it took me a while to actually listen to them. I listened to their self-titled album about two years ago and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The Stone Roses ranks # 498 on the Rolling Stone Greatest Albums list. The song…

Album Spotlight: Daryl Donald – Solitude

Dary Donald’s debut album Solitude is a warm and vibrant instrumental release. It features some of the most chill beats that are reminiscent of Mello Music Group‘s catalog. There are elements of jazz and soul samples that really displays a versatile mix of influences. The album opens up with “Odessa” that really establishes the tone of…

Bryson Tiller: Somethin Tells Me

Bryson Tiller’s career has been blowing up since the release of his highly successful debut album Trapsoul. His follow-up True to Self has become one of the most anticipated albums of 2017.  Last week, Tiller released two singles from the album including “Somethin Tells Me.”

Lucky Dube: Back to My Roots

Lucky Dube was a great reggae artist that made some of the most soul-stirring music ever produced. He had a ton of hits that propelled him to stardom including “Back to My Roots.” This song has Lucky singing about not being able to relate to various musical genres and, instead, chooses to go back to…
