Steady Holiday – Open Water

steadyholiday

Steady Holiday aka L.A. artist Dre Babinski employs a French pop/post-Portishead frame to new track “Open Water”. Carried by Ms. Babinski’s quieting/effective vocal/melodic choices “Open Water” radiates an excellent sense of setting atmosphere. Think a 1960’s Paris metro photographed in black and white or a foggy pier-side late night in 90’s Bristol.

Two Another – Shouldn’t Have Done That

twoanother3

The UK twosome enter another soulful bit of modern pop to their already great oeuvre of tracks on new one “Shouldn’t Have Done That”. On the song, a focused central (and hypnotic) vocal hook (Shouldn’t of…) twists “Shouldn’t Have Done That” into a kind of melodic accessibility that should break open new listening territory for the quickly rising band. Spin “Shouldn’t Have Done That” below.

Dylan LeBlanc – Cautionary Tale

dylanleblanc

The Single Lock Records artist released his third LP in January. The title track “Cautionary Tale” melds 70’s pop fidelity and sonorousness with canyon-side/Western landscape atmospheres and A+ melodic writing. “Cautionary Tale” is one of our favorite songs of the year; do not sleep.

Mick Jenkins – The Artful Dodger (Prod. Kaytranada & THEMpeople)

mickjenkins

Chicago man Mick Jenkins turns to Kaytra & THEMpeople for a minimal production frame in which to spit an array of stylistically varied flows. The skittering creeper beat’s changing character gives MJ the appropriate chassis to cast a cool range of personas throughout the track. There’s a neat bit of narrative/symbiosis going on “The Artful Dodger” between the guise of each set of rhymes and its accompanying instrumental. Right. We like it.
