We’ve been into the recent run of material from Hot Flash Heat Wave, all excerpted from the SF band’s forthcoming Mood Ring EP. “Dreaming of U”, “Head in the Clouds”, and dreamy psych-R&B sounding new one “Sky So Blue” are all winners and deserve your attention. Mood Ring is out Friday (1/11).
Forthcoming from L.A. artist Albert Kass’ new album is “Hurricane”. A spare acoustic-driven track that reminds melodically a bit of Neil Young, “Hurricane” is described by Kass as “my coming of age-you know, that feeling of loss, of coming to terms with the harsh realization that life isn’t handed to you.” That narrative of realization is neatly juxtaposed on the track to a subtly sweet main melody. Kass further comments, “Now that I’m older and comfortable in my own skin, I’m fascinated by the joys and miseries of childhood, how I perceived growing up, and how that perception changed over time. In writing Hurricane, those bittersweet emotions really worked themselves out in song—in melody, especially.” We’re pleased to present the B3SCI Premiere of Albert Kass’ “Hurricane” below.
