And here’s the extended, non-radio edit version of ’1998.’ Same song, even more goodness.
I know I’m a sucker for songs like JMR’s ‘Pioneer Of Your Heart,’ ones where elements and layers are added and subtracted at exactly the right moment throughout, but seriously, this is some kind of special jam. Falsetto, a big beat, some strings, some keys, some harmonies, some a cappella – there’s nothing to dislike about what’s happening here. Enjoy.
Maybe you didn’t know, but Esmé Patterson released one of the finest records of 2014 so far today in the form of Woman To Woman. A 7-song collection of songs written from the perspective of the women who were made famous in the titles of classic songs, it’s smart, bold and altogether well-written, the rare concept album that sounds fresh.
It’s superb from start to finish, but I’ve been stuck on ‘The Glow’ today, a lovely, bright tune written from the perspective of Caroline (of The Beach Boys’ ‘Caroline, No’ fame). Take a listen to it below and then be sure to head here (for vinyl/cd) or here (for mp3s) to grab the whole tremendous record for yourself. Enjoy.
‘Lost And Found,’ a stunning, slow-building/burning new tune from one of my favorite songwriters, Tyler Lyle, showed up unannounced overnight. With a new EP due out this week and a collaborative EP with producer iAmData on its way sometime soon, it appears we’re going to be hearing a lot from the very talented, very prolific Lyle this year. That’s good news. Enjoy.
