A busy #NewMusicFriday continues as Njomza comes through with a new release, her first of 2018. Vacation starts off well with “Lonely Nights” and the vibe continues all the way through the outro. Add this to your quick-listen projects to peep this weekend.
It’s been amazing to see the U.K.’s synthpop duo Empathy Test continue to grow since we discovered them way back in the 2015 NBA Finals. Their music then still stands the test of time now (I play their first EP all the time and get a lot of “Who is this?!”) and their long-awaited latest drop would fit right in.
“Holy Rivers” and “Incubation Song” also get some remixes, per Empathy Test’s usual style. Where this really shines is with “Incubation Song” because the longer version is a great zone and the length of the track really works here. No excuse for not checking out this out above!
You know we’ve been rockin with Koda here at GWHH the last couple of years in LA. The singer/producer is a treat to see live and we just caught him perform much of this album this summer.
Alas, now we have the official EP release Same as it EverWas and it’s a great fit for your late night lonely drives. I gravitated a lot to “Meditation”, “The Drowning Machine”, and “Ghosting” but the entire 8 tracks is an experience. Listen listen!
Jeremih & Ty Dolla $ign are sure to have some modern R&B hits on their new collab album and the one I’d like to highlight is found within the corny pun of a headline.
“Perfect Timing” actually follows the enjoyably explicit “FYT” and marks the turning point of the album where I’m really tuned in. You and your partner will likely find some common ground somewhere here.
I’ve been following SG Lewis for quite some time now, ever since he landed the moody “Warm” on the Season 1 finale of Ballers. The U.K. producer/songwriter has either captured dark moods or sunny moods in his own, fresh way.
His new single drops tonight, “A.A.T” with Drew Love, and the self-admitted “experiment” is “different for him” but it actually falls into the lane of other songs like it. You’ll hear why, but at least the beat is fresh, and it’s actually well-executed too by all parties involved. I’ll rock with it for now and see if it sticks.
Awesome sit-down in the studio with GQ that I only wish was longer.
Cud describes how “Reborn”, “Cudi Montage”, “Father Stretch My Hands” and “All of the Lights” came together with Kanye. Highlights like sampling Nirvana and being surprised at what made “Father Stretch My Hands” and “All of the Lights”. Hah, you never know what Kanye will end up using, right?
It’s cool to hear this behind the scenes insight that not only could have been longer, per song, but even covered many more of Cudi’s “iconic tracks” from his first couple of albums. Need a Part 2 (or 3…)
