Summer is hurr. This song should be a fine compliment to the pleasant weather and epic romantic endings on the finales of your respective TV shows. As anybody with an Indian accent would say, I’m really “lowing” this indie jam.
I Will Wait for You (Everyone Wants to Be a Cowboy)
August Alsina spends parts of the tape borrowing from some of the most recognizable songs right now and changing them up into something totally different in tone. He lifts the intro to “Suit & Tie” and twists it into “Shoot or Die”. Here, he takes the hook from “Bandz A Make Her Dance” and slows it down all sexy with an R&B voice that sounds nothing like Juicy J’s gruff one. However, the real kicker here is climax to The-Dream’s contribution. Terius delivers a kick to the stomach as he sings, “Maybe all I need is you and I’ll be okay.” He sounds so wistful, so hopeful, so sad.
Confessions Interlude [Part 2] ft. The Dream Bandz
The new Pistol Annies record is filled with some really beautiful ballads that show off the vocal pipes and harmonizing abilities of all three Annies. “Hush Hush” is not one of those songs, instead choosing to go uptempo to showcase personality and make a point about the public and private divide of how people conduct themselves. It’s a familiar theme in the Annies’ work; Miranda Lambert did it with enormous success in “Mama’s Broken Heart”. The “hush hush” of the chorus is contrasted against the the extremely intimate vignettes of the verses. The greatest punchline comes when the Annies imitate family matriarchs before the final “best to keep it hush hush”.
Welcome to the inner workings of my mind. I think there’s a contingency of electronic musicians that make sure to keep soul in their melodies. This is MS MR’s original spruced up by CHVRCHES. I could picture myself singing this at a church.
Hurricane (CHVRCHES Remix)
Mac Demarco is starting to really enter the public’s consciousness with 2’s laid-back indie charm. Pop on this track and enjoy the approaching spring with Demarco’s lazy, bright guitar.
“Oh, life moves this slowly…”
