Cut_ As You Are
Moments of_ Van Dyke Parks, Daniel Johns, Grizzly Bear
Delightfully melancholy, irreverently whimsical and string arrangments worthy enough to aid in brain implosion. Not to mention wunderkin extraordinaire Van Dyke Parks. Highly recommended.
Artist_ Anna Of The North
Cut_ Sway (Chainsmoker’s Remix)
Moments of_ Flume, The Naked and Famous, Tove Lo
Dream Pop has never sounded so good. Loops on crack undeniably but your new favorite guity pleasure. I also have to make mention of the fact that Chainsmokers remix is just frankly the tits. Diggin this track like you would not believe.
Artist_ Kendrick Lamar
Moments of_ Curtis Mayfield, Method Man, Scoop DeVille
Compton’s finest unleashes this soul sampling new school classic with a spit game that has him being hailed as the the future of West Coast Hip Hop. Hideously catchy and everything you need to please party guests and your Nana alike.
Artist_ Big Data feat. Joywave
Moments of_ Goodshirt, Sia, Weezer, Beck
Just quirky as hell really (don’t even get me started on the video) but very reminiscent of early Weezer and bloated bassline thats oh em gee worthy. Whilst potentially running the risk of being classified as an ‘offcut’ Big Data’s debut is not scheduled til March of this year. Luuurve.This.Song.
Moments of_ Robyn, Company of Thieves, Grimes
Hipster chipmunk pop that has mainstream sensibility but enough street cred to keep it fresh. Guilty pleasure – check.
Cut_ Til’ Its Gone
Moments of_ Mac Miller, Backstreet Boys, Macklemore
A dusty, Nashville produced take on rap, there is something distinctly boy band about the vocal on this track but well worth the mention anyhow.
