Leon Bridges – Lisa Sawyer

leonbridges2

There is nothing we don’t love about “Lisa Sawyer”, the new one from DFW’s Leon Bridges. Romantic doo-wop-ref’ing harmony and instrrumentation done in a way that is both very affecting and comes off with a fresh feel that makes Bridges’ emotional communication in the track so much more real.

“Shelter” is the new dark pop ballad and second track online from Londoner Lyves. “Shelter” earns its marks on its sweeping cinema and sonics, restrained but poignant vocal and strong pop songwriting. Lyves is one to keep watch on.

Odesza – All We Need (Haywyre Remix)

awn_haywyre_2_

Haywyre’s new official remix of “All We Need” by Odesza is a feel-good, futuristic take on the original that deserves your attention. The catchy synth layers together perfectly with the upbeat bassline and smooth keyboard section. There are a lot of remixes of Odesza floating around the internet right now, but this is easily one of the best ones – hands down. Reviewed by Daniel.
