By Lily Kraxberger Hallam George’s new song is soulful and down to earth, featuring smooth and funky guitar lines and varied vocals (plus a killer whistling hook to start). As a bonus, he includes sounds from his new home of Boston under the track, making it fresh while retaining his usual personality.
By Theo Bloom Chic makes a forceful and funky return to the spotlight after a 25 year hiatus with the album Its About Time. The standout track of the bunch is Boogie all Night, an NAO supported track. Maybe disco isn’t dead after all?
By Cam Fuller The new singles from experimental artist Kagami Smile are rooted in classic house and ambient sounds, but hold enough of their own style to stand out. Though combining the two styles isn’t totally new, Smile’s reverb-soaked take on electronic music is original enough to almost be considered a new genre.

By Jarrod Russo The Holydrug Couple’s “Chevalier” is an instrumental that blends electronic, indie and psychedelic rock into a smooth, looping song. If you haven’t checked out their newest album, this is a great place to start!
By David Colton: Self, Room 25 Noname slides into the first verse of her debut album like the smooth piano beat has already been stuck in your head for six months. She effortlessly floats across this entire album, lyrically and spiritually.
By Mollie Harrison The second single off of Mac Ayres’ just debuted full-length album Something to Feel, “Get to You Again” is the epitome of the bittersweet R&B anthems the young artist is so well-known for. Although the song at surface level seems to be about reuniting with someone you’ve been missing, Ayres revealed in an […]
By Ben Luty I don’t know how he does it, but everything Kanye West does is simultaneously genius and idiotic. Kanye is no stranger to things that somehow manage to be good and bad.
