Ryan Svendsen – One Hundred Percent (Feat. Jerome Thomas)

We dug last year Ryan Svendsen’s Molly Moore-featuring track “Orange Tree Leaves”. We’re very into Svendsen’s latest offering, “One Hundred Percent”. The track features one of our favorite new vocalists Jerome Thomas and is 3:25 of cooled-out horn-driven R&B. A+++.

Kendra Morris – Summertime

Oh yeah, we can most definitely get behind this one. For “Summertime” NYC singer Kendra Morris is outfitted in a perfectly paced mid-tempo instrumental, an excellent pairing for Morris’ main vocal melody which is as cool as the summer is long. Allllllll right.

Agency – Exponents [EP]

The neo-soul duo Agency has put out “Exponents”, an EP full of experimental and meandering R&B. The fourth track off the release, “is there some other version of my story?,” is full of polyphonies that billow in and out of a brooding dissonance. With the fuzzy organ backing, there’s an undeniable Frank Ocean resemblance. And yet its sound is still fresh—not without its own center of gravity. Stream “Is There Some Other Version of My Story?” from “Exponents” below.

Up and coming Atlanta based producer, Kodiak Soul just dropped some chill downtempo jams that I’m loving.
