November is an awkward month. Fall is near an end, it's not quite the holidays and it's cold. But during a stressful, unsettling time is when good music is needed the most. The November SnS playlist features new music from a new project from Parquet Quarts - Parkay Courts, Body Cheetah and some new favorites like Young Magic, Palace and BLONDES.
The song begins with a haunting guitar. And then a soulful distinct voice chimes in. The melody will follow you around for days.
Understated surf rock, reverbed guitars are one of my weaknesses. And the intro had me even before the singer begins singing. Then a powerful, melodic voice makes a dramatic entrance yet still manages to melt perfectly into the guitars. It's bliss and it's been on repeat for me for a week.
It's sultry, relaxed, hanging hip hop. And then really smart, smooth rap. Walk to this, or fall asleep. It's not new, but it needs to be heard.
