From Cold Heart, “Still In Love”

  • Genre: Psychedelic Indie
  • Artist: Unknown Mortal Orchestra

This group is well known (despite their name), but for good reason.  The new album fuses a lot of different genres, but more heavy on funk/blues with the tone and lyrics alternating between calm and high energy.

From Sex & Food, “American Guilt”

This album is lengthy, but not long-winded.  Features a versatile collaboration with artists including Jadakiss, Portugal. The Man, Denzel Curry, and others.  The content spans passionately sociopolitical lyrics with a nonstop cool quickness in a holistically raw approach to widespread melodies.

From Vacation in Hell, “Headstone”

  • Genre: Punk
  • Artist: Ed Schrader’s Music Beat
  • Album: Riddles

This group is punk at heart, but explores slow, dreamy melodies while incorporating minimalist, quick drum/bass harmonies and shrieking, ominous vocals.

From Riddles, “Seagull”

  • Genre: Electronic
  • Artist: Essaie Pas
  • Album: New Path

This album is ambitious...blending lush emotions with fun, chic, cryptic techno to make for a complicated, suspenseful journey from start to finish.

From New Path, “Complet Brouille”
