No genre, no rules. Songs we love that you will too.
"Nostalgia" // NAO: London based singer/songwriter NAO is back with a new track, and we can't stop listening. She brings her soul, R&B vocal style over a funky, 80's-esque beat produced by John Colvert. This uplifting song is a vibe and a half.
"Homemade Dynamite" // Lorde (ft. SZA, Post Malone, Khalid): Following the release of her incredible sophomore album, Melodrama, Lorde is back with a star-studded remix that seems too good to be true. Khalid provides us with a thoughtful verse, followed by a verse and hook from SZA, leading to a bridge led by Syracuse native Post Malone. The blend of voices is elegant, light, and addictive.
"rockstar" // Post Malone (ft. 21 Savage): The first song off of his anticipated album Beerbongs and Bentleys, this collab is one of Post's strongest tracks to date, boasting quotable lyrics and a smooth feature from Atlanta native 21 Savage. Get ready for this song to play all over campus for the rest of the semester.
"I Still See Your Face" // San Holo: San Holo is back with an infectious ballad in "I Still See Your Face." Following a light verse and hook, electronic and metallic sounds blend with uplifting chords and melodies reminiscent of childhood memories.
"Curve" // Gucci Mane (ft. The Weeknd): From Gucci Mane's impending album Mr. Davis, "Curve" is a perfect blend between the Toronto star and Atlanta kingpin. Gucci's unapologetic lyrics are seen throughout the song; "You look like a model, but a devil in disguise / Bum, bum, bum, bum, I feel like Rocky in his prime."
"Bless Yo Trap" // Smokepurpp: In true Smokepurpp fashion, the Florida rapper flexes as much as possible in less than 2 minutes, over 808's that are perfectly distorted. Lil Purp also announced a release date for his upcoming project, DEADSTAR: September 29th.
"Dum Surfer" // King Krule: In "Dum Surfer," King Krule pushes the envelope on how dark and demonic he can get. His trippy, jazz-influenced instrumentals hang devilishly under his gritty vocal; this song sounds like a party for the end of the world.
"Bust Down" // Trippie Redd: "Bust Down" is a follow up to the huge feature slot Redd helf on XXXTENTACION's recent smash, "Fuck Love." The Ohio urban artist takes influence from Young Thug, filling up empty space with melodic ad-libs and harmonies.
"We Go Home Together" // Mount Kimbie (ft. James Blake): This song, both haunting and enchanting, boasts both an eclectic range of sounds, and a distinct balance of major and minor themes. The sharp tension throughout "We Go Home Together" makes its' releases even more satisfying, and its' delicate moments all the more fragile.
"WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE" // Marilyn Manson: Hot off of Manson's impending album Heaven Upside Down, WKWYFL is a dark and aggressive anthem for the underground.
