Pass The Hours

MorMor, a.k.a. Toronto singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Seth Nyquist, released the EP 'Some Place Else' following his astounding debut EP 'Heaven's Only Wishful'. MorMor mentioned that he "wrote these songs during a time where he couldn't shake my demons. He was forced to confront what he had been masking in smiles and metaphors."

“Making Désolé with Fatou was a real moment for me, you know,” Gorillaz drummer Russel Hobbs said. “She’s an African Queen. This lady made the song what it is, beautiful, like life. What can I say about ‘Désolé’? They say sorry is the hardest word, but that’s not true…

"We present our first ‘Untitled’ album to mark a moment in time where we as Black People, and of Black Origin are fighting for our lives. RIP George Floyd and all those who have suffered from police brutality and systemic racism. Change is happening… We are focused. SAULT x " https://saultglobal.bandcamp.com/

by Sly & the Family Stone

"As the first single and first song on the group's first album, A Whole New Thing, "Underdog" introduced Sly and the Family Stone in as raucous a way possible. It opens, oddly enough, with saxophonist Jerry Martini sleepily riffing on the children's song "Frère Jacques" before giving way to a full acid rock jam of driving horns, dramatic choral yells and a defiant social message about underdogs who have to prove themselves to be "twice as good." George Clinton told official Family Stone biographer Jeff Kaliss that, in listening to the song, "you felt like they were speaking directly to you personally." The song and its album were the group's creative magnum opus… just not a commercial one. They failed to break the Family Stone out nationally, but that moment would come soon enough." https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-lists/sly-and-the-family-stone-20-essential-songs-79782/dance-to-the-music-1968-37969/

On The Fly (Nu Jck)
by Chanti Darling
(8 plays) | (0 fans)

Chanticleer Trü would like you to know that “RNB ain’t no joke.” As frontman of Portland, OR retrofuturist electro-soul adepts Chanti Darling, Trü drinks deeply from the sacred founts of Disco, Boogie Funk, and the dizzying universe of house music. Teasing out the essential filaments, Trü weaves a sound that nods to the past as it blasts into the future; urgent, irresistible, and absolutely of the moment.

I Would Die 4 U
by Prince & the Revolution
(49 plays) | (1 fan)

Off the Purple Rain soundtrack, the song's lyrics evoke Jesus Christ's message to his followers: "U — I would die 4 U, darling if U want me 2;" as well as, "if you're evil I'll forgive you", "all I really need to know is that U believe," and, "I'm your messiah and you're the reason why."

La Di Da
by The Internet
(54 plays) | (0 fans)

Pitchfork writes of this song: "Syd has grown masterful at describing the nuances of love and courtship. On the Internet’s first albums, she presented her emotions in shades of black and white; over time, the 26-year-old has started to paint her words in softer and more complex hues, adding truth and sincerity to the group’s sound. Sometimes that’s meant avoiding singing about the big dramatic moments in the pursuit of intimacy and, instead, focusing on the smaller and sillier ones—which she does on the band’s latest single, “La Di Da,” an ode to dancefloor politics."
