New Nelly Furtado! Sounds not bad to our ears, but do people still care though? We’ll see…
Debut single from a new Canadian act, out of Calgary, AB of all places, called BeachSeason. Here’s the PR drop on them:
BeachSeason is the moniker of musicians Sam Avant and Simon Blitzer – a Calgary based duo recently signed to Universal Music who combine R&B vocals, luscious synths and bass heavy undertones to create a sound of ambient dreamy beats that takes you on an irresistible sonic daydream. Unmatched with their unique take on modern music and first-rate with their remixes/features with artists such as Rainer + Grimm, Humans, Mt. Eden – it’s no wonder that they are starting to build an international following. “Tribes” is the debut single from their forthcoming EP Libra Year – it’s lush, vibrant, experimental and everything that Beach Season has always been – completely inimitable. Their recent collaboration with Rainer & Grimm “Do It Right” quickly hit one plus million streams on Spotify.
Sounds like a bit of knockoff of The Weeknd but there’s enough originality and quality going on here to warrant your attention, I think. Curious to hear what subsequent music sounds like. Dig it? You can stream it via your favorite service (iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, YouTube etc.): HERE
New joint by Toronto EDM duo, Zeds Dead with Twin Shadow. Dooope!
I still ain’t heard the Frank Ocean Blonde album because for some reason it still hasn’t been released on other streaming sites besides Apple Music despite what the High Snobiety article I swiped this from claims. So I don’t even know what the original version of this track sounds like and what Toronto’s alternative soul duo, dvsn did as far as remixing it. Thoughts though?
Well that was quick. First single and title track from The Weeknd‘s forthcoming (Nov. 25) 18 track new album, Starboy which was just announced yesterday featuring Daft Punk. From ThisisRnB:
Earlier this month, The Weeknd promised that Starboy would be his “best-sounding” album to date with influences ranging from The Smiths and Bad Brains to Prince.
“I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done,” he told VMAN. “It’s hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced.”
Abel is not playing!
