Fell behind during a week that happened to have a thousand new releases. Not the best time to slip, but I took a few extra hours to listen to them all(ish). None shall escape!
The music can run. The music can hide. But I track those audacious albums without mercy, so that you do not miss what shouldn’t be missed. Because I love you, my loyal readership.
Heart eyes emoji face, y’all …. I mean it.
Let’s round ’em up.
After more of a roots-rock debut, Rose eschews definition on her latest and lets it all fly where it may, to fantastic effect.
Beatchild & The Slakadeliqs – Heavy Rockin’ Steady
A modern take on Sly Stone’s mix of pop, soul, and psych.
Andy Cooper – The Layered Effect
Spittin’ rhymes that roll trippingly off the tongue to a jazztastic beat.
Pearl Charles – Sleepless Dreamer
Warm and relaxed pop with a 70’s West Coast vibe.
Absolutely love “The Only Difference.” Such feel-good vibes.
The whole album kind of has that relaxed, feel-good vibe. Glad you liked it!
