Hard Life
(24 plays) | (1 fan)

“'Hard Life' is another example of the detailed thought that characterizes the album in its entirety. Starting with sparse syncopation and a rumbling, truculent bassline, it adds Cleo Sol’s effortless vocals and some necessary incendiary lyrics: 'I ain’t gonna wait no more / Gonna start a war / I ain’t gonna wait no more.'”"The song’s change from war cry to victory march mirrors that oft quoted idea that the arc of progress heads towards justice and it is remarkable." Learn more about his album that "embodies the soul, spirit, and sanctity of revolution.": https://www.albumism.com/reviews/sault-untitled-black-is

nowhere man
by tUnE-yArDs
(23 plays) | (0 fans)

California band Tune-Yards are back with "nowhere, man", their first new single in over two years. The song name is a reference to the Beatles song of a similar name, and the video features Charlie Chapin–inspired footage. Merrill Garbus said, "We hope the music brings energy and a strong wind of encouragement to those who are shouting and singing loudly for justice right now.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xd097nWH2s

Salt Licorice
by Jónsi with Robyn
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

“’Salt Licorice’ is such a cute and perfect pop song,” Robyn states. “It makes me want to dance violently and make out at the same time. It was a no-brainer to say yes to singing it with Jónsi. The pretty emails I get with a thousand emojis in them from him is a bonus that came with our collaboration as well!” “Salt Licorice” arrives with a video that Jónsi directed with Rene van Pannevis. The eye-popping visual boasts a bubblegum pink palette and is filled with a mix of surreal and sweet sequences to match the song, from Jónsi shaving his head, to having his face covered in some kind of goop, to a small group of dancers (including Dominique McDougal and Albert Trujillo) moving ecstatically to the song. https://bit.ly/30nO3KI

A Long Way Past the Past
by Fleet Foxes
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

Breaking down every song, Robin Pecknold revealed that working on "A Long Way Past the Past" allowed him to have some fun with a song that's "a little bit too slow." "I was like, 'This song must be 80 beats per minute, that’s as fast as it could be,'" he says. "It has this slight, easy stroll or strut to it. And then lyrically, it’s reconciling how much of the past to hold on to and how much to leave behind, questioning that conflict." https://ew.com/music/fleet-foxes-robin-pecknold-shore-track-by-track-breakdown/
