God it’s good to feature a female producer. There’s a real shortage of ’em. And what a producer Carly D is. I don’t think I’ve heard a drop that gets my spine a tinglin’ like the first one on her remix of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Can’t Get You Outta My Head.’ It’s clearly Oakland influenced and is not for the conservative ear.
I don’t say this too often, especially not so prematurely, but REverb Rock’s got potential for big tings (things). So far I only like the two tracks that’ve come off his soon to be released Fables album, but those two have been floatin ’round my head for days – and not in just the usual way.
At first, I thought of his sound as just some pleasant chillwave or whatever you wanna call it, but (not so) soon after I realized REverb’s music is much more than that. His voice has this nonchalant way of seducing you into his lyrics. The words are as simple as they come, yet as clear in my head as I’ve ever pictured. And although he may be much more of a storyteller to me now, his music production carries an almost equal weight.
Fables is fully out in December. But not getting my hopes up, yet (never ends well).
You can’t quite tell right off the bat how well these vocals will carry, but once you get into the mess of it all, you quickly realize – especially with Lenno’s dirty disco mixed in. Unlike the original indie piece, Lenno brings in that raspy bass & nu-disco charm, which brings the vocals to much higher heights.
We don’t get much of this blues rock ’round here, but Gary Clark Jr. got us goin with his latest, ‘Ain’t Messin Round.’ His voice is what caught our attention, it just goes so well with this blues rock beat, but the electro guitar solo is what topped it all off just right.
Make sure to catch his debut album, Blak And Blu, out October 22.
Luminaire’s Seperate Ways is a 5-track EP with a healthy mix of House & Disco. And even though it’s hard to differentiate Disco from House at times, I of course flock to the side that carries the soulful singers (disco, I’m guessing). ‘Allready Over’ & ‘It Will Be Allright’ are right up there with what first got me into my love lust with Luminaire, but they still gotta ways to go to toppel my first love.
Learning through sound is one of my favorite ways to relax. I can just sit back and listen. However, music seems to be taking up most of my time, but I plan to change that. Since my listening routine with music is mostly on SoundCloud, integrating storytellers & educators into my SoundCloud stream might even out my daily bias towards music.
So I’ve taken to SoundCloud to find & filter the most fascinating SoundClouders around. I’ve rummaged through Voices, the Fellowship program and their “Suggested users” to come up with eleven knowledgable SoundClouders in their own right. It basically comes down to what they say and how they say it (kinda like music), but here’s more specifics on how I determined who to select: […]
