These days, I’m a sucker for a strong voice and a cool beat.
Last week I featured “Freedom” by Inky Jack, a song that really hasn’t left my head in days. Today, I found a new song to possibly replace it. Here’s “Pioneer Of Your Heart” by Florida-swamp born artist Joshua Michael Robinson (aka JMR). The song begins with delicate instrumentation and vocal melody later transforming with beats, samples with a bed of dark synth and bass.
Have you heard the latest track from Sylvan Esso? The Line Of Best Fit premiered a new track from the duo made up of Mountain Man’s Amelia Meath and Megafaun’s Nick Sanborn, from their upcoming self-titled album out next month (via Partisan Records).
I must just warn you, something will happen to you at the 3:40 of this track. It’s a moment that transcends, almost as if it sounds like the slower dulled-down opening sequence of “One Big Holiday” by My Morning Jacket. Get your fingers dirty by nibbling on some Prawns will ya?
Not entirely sure how we managed to miss this track, considering our penchant for being blatantly obsessed with music coming out of Australia. This song is a cliche for feelings, as in, it gives you many of them, consecutively, without hesitation right until the end. Well that isn’t entirely true either because the smooth guitar pick still lingers for a while afterwards. All we really want at the end of the day is for you to feel?
Its packing time, as I’m getting my weeks worth of crap together in a bag to head back to Toronto. Miami was nice, so I should say it twice. Miami was nice.
I’ve been meaning to get this contest running here, so…….
