  • Day Fly – Do You Need Me
  • Do you need me? The way that I need you? The answer to that question is unfortunately no; I know you’ll never need me again. On that fateful day you made it clear as my tears rained down like the summer storms that plagued that season. I opened myself up and you slammed the door […]
  • Michael Mason – Evil Presence (ft. Sophie Meiers)
  • If there’s an evil presence on Michael Mason’s new single, it feels more like a succubus or siren of the sea rather than a traditional savage. From beginning to end, the track is utterly intoxicating, its sonic embrace slowly pulling you in closer and closer. The array of synths is disorienting at points while Sophie […]

    3:13, via The Burning Ear

  • Steve Davit – “Forward” // Gary Card
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Gary Card [via] Bury me in that Saxophone line. If this song doesn’t make you want to move your head uncontrollably, nothing will. The infectious groove doesn’t let up throughout the entire track as the smooth jazz-funk fusion takes your ears for a stroll down the block. Good luck getting this […]
  • Antoine Diligent – “The Harmonist” // Troy Brooks
    3:13, via The Burning Ear
  • Visual art above by Troy Brooks [via] This track greets you like an old friend, evoking nostalgic vibes of your favorite indie pop songs, but it contains enough of a “can’t put my finger on it” positive quality to make you endlessly curious as to what other material Antoine Diligent has available. His confident baritone […]
  • Joyzu & Lilianna Wilde – Famous
    3:13, via Salacious Sound
  • Rising producer Joyzu just released a single Famous, collaborating with vocalist Lilianna Wilde to create something majestic. The single is full of emotion both melodically and lyrically.
