Somewhere somehow I received 5 songs by The Suitcase Junket and they are all fuckin' brilliant. He (Matt Lorenz) has released his new album Make Time in January and when it's time to pick a new Must-Have of the Month in 2 weeks, I might just spent my money on this record. The other 4 songs I am completely addicted to are unfortunately nowhere to be found, but "So, No" is from the new record and really, really great.
The Suitcase Junket's music is raw as hell and addictive as fuck. Check it out!
Dope by Design is a 7-piece hiphop collective from California and this 5-track EP is the best hiphop-record I've heard in the last 6 months. Everything about these five songs oozes perfection. It's loud and smart, happy and interesting. The message they are sending is clear and inspiring. The sound is live, bright and organic. There's so much going on in each song, the best way to really get to know these songs is to listen to them over and over again. Just like I've been doing these last few days.
Everyone remotely interested in hiphop should listen to this!
Bear Medicine’s debut album The Moon Has Been All My Life is a beautiful and odd folk record. Odd in a good way, odd in a great way. This is not your typical folk record, but this is something really special. The record takes my breath away and keeps my mind from thinking. The only thing still working properly is my heart beating very slowly as this mesmerizing record takes over my body and mind. With heartache eating away inside of me I've listened to a lot of soothing records lately. The Moon Has Been All My Life does something different to me by taking my mind of everything else in life completely. The only way a record can take my focus and breath away like this is by being really special. And this my friends, is one hell of a special record.
Last month the band released the vinyl version I was waiting for, and as we speak there's a copy on its way to my record player. Just the thought of that, makes me feel really, really great.
It's probably me, but up to 14 hours ago I had never heard of Hudson Mohawke. Unlike several 100.000 others. I guess I can't be the first one to discover every new great track being released. This brank new track is gold. Great beats, amazing vibe. I love this.
Seryn's new album Shadow Shows is a great record. I'm not good at explaining the reasons for stating this opinion, but I know I really like this record. And I see myself falling in love with it a little more each time I listen to it. Some records are instant love, other take some time to slowly win you over. For me, Shadow Shows is in the both categories. Although this was only released a Month ago and I have listened to it a lot already, the real love is just starting to grow and wil continue to do so for many months (and maybe years) to come. I still listen to their previous record This Is Where We Are and that was released back in 2011. That's how deep the love for a beautiful record can go.
Will Shadow Shows turn out to be such an epic, mesmerizing, addictive record?! I don't doubt it!
