Drew Barrymore
by SZA
(29 plays) | (0 fans)

Listening to SZA's 2017 R&B album, Ctrl, is like floating into a dream. Filled with her silvery voice, electronic production and an unabashed openness about her stage in life — she's 26-year-old woman trying to balance relationships and honesty with herself — SZA's songs feature collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott and Isaiah Rashad. https://twitter.com/sza?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

"‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ is one of the quintessential tracks by The Smiths, one which perfectly juxtaposed Johnny Marr’s phenomenal jangly guitars with the somber lyricism of Morrissey."

Free Gloss
by Holy Fuck feat.Nicholas All...
(35 plays) | (0 fans)

Of this album, band member Brian Borchant says, "It's been long enough now, somewhere around the last record may be that it felt like we've done this long enough that we've kind of invented our own language. I think we're pretty idiosyncratic, and hopefully, our music exists in its own realm. That's not an easy thing to do. It takes a certain amount of dedication and faith, but I think we've been doing it long enough that we figured out that language." This track features the vocals of Nicholas Allbrook of Pond. https://bit.ly/2OgZHAS

Stone Meadows
by Bartees Strange

Bartees Strange on his musical upbringing: "My parents are pretty Christian, so I didn't get access to secular music until I had friends with cars. My dad loved collecting music; he's not a musician, but he's got tape machines and all types of cool things to play music back. He would show me funk and Parliament and Bootsy and Rick James, so that was like my secular musical reference. I remember seeing TV on the Radio play on Letterman and At the Drive In, and that s*** shook my world. Around the same time, I was starting to get into punk bands because I had some friends with cars. And at church, a bunch of people that really liked Norma Jean. I was like, "Whoa, this is crazy." Being a person that just wanted to fit in, I was like, "Well, I'm going to figure out why people like this, and I'm going to like it." Like, "I'm going to find my way into this."'"
