A COLLECTION OF THE WJHU COMMUNITY'S FAVORITE TUNES OF THE MOMENT.
Rebecca Rosenthal - No Show
Revisiting Angel Olson, Perfume Genius, and queen Lana Del Rey. Lana is so easy to listen to. Great study background music.
Raph Santore - Double Dream Hands
Not this week but, SiR dropped an album a few weeks ago called November and I have been bumping it on repeat. It is just beautifully smooth. It's the kind of album where when you're feeling stressed you can put on your over-ear headphones, close your eyes, take some deep breaths, and just listen and relax. It's really been helping me get my head right.
Jason Souvaliotis - Local Teen Tries his Best
Frisco - God Forgive Me ft. Tiggs Da Author
Slowthai - T N Biscuits
God Forgive Me is a summer chill track which is fun but it's also kinda weird because the hook is "god forgive me if i bust my nine" which is not chill - either way, Frisco kills it and is still underrated. T N Biscuits just slaps.
Jonathan Silveira - Slumpday
I bought tickets to see Iceage live, I love Iceage. They're very good. They have a new album coming out in May and I cannot wait. They have so far released three singles: Catch it (a bop!) Painkiller (featuring Sky Ferreira) and Take It All (love it). I also just started listening to the KEXP Superorganism performance, and this is the first time I'm listening to them but I'm absolutely loving this band. Listen to them.
Paul Watson - Pour Hour
Famous Last Words by The True Loves. It’s the hottest soul music you’ll hear 🔥
Hana Chop - Platonic Love Affair
Started listening to Johann Sebastian Bach after my aunt hired a cellist to perform at a dinner party over spring break. Pretty convincing stuff- check out his organ music.
Gist is - Adult Jazz: Listening to this album felt like listening to a secret Dirty Projectors album. Soulful and strange.
Sons of Kemet - Your Queen is a Reptile: A jazz band with a tuba??? Yaaaaaas. That tuba just gets me movin' in my chair.
Captain Beefheart et al - Safe as Milk: Captain Beefheart is so fucking funny and brilliant. Abba Zaba off this album is the coolest tune.
Amber Coffman - City of No Reply. I looooove Coffman's voice. Very sweet and understated. Something about her is intensely relatable to me.
Peggy Gou - Once EP
Baba Stiltz - Is Everything EP
Jono Ma & Dreems - Can't Stop My Dreaming (Of You)
Buttechno - Super Siziy King EP
LOFT - Three Settlements Four Ways EP
DJ Taye - Still Trippin'
Blawan - North
Take Me Out, Diplo's new mixtape thing with those rappers
Some really unique and effective sonic decisions and also trap with some dope beats
Sam Gomes - Sunday Mass
Toy by Young Fathers, part of their new album. Also ZZZ by Milkavelli and Lil Peep bc RIP Lil Peep. :,(
Whatever "it" is, these songs have got "it"
Freddie McCall - Double Dream Hands
(Album) The Best of Mandrill - Mandrill
Cool for Cats - Squeeze
Bothersome - Jack Stauber
Lupe - Baka Beyond
~Mandrill bring the funk, but they throw a bunch of other genres into the pot to keep the flavor fresh and poppin' (fav track: Mango Meat)
~I love songs that tell stories. Cool for Cats does this and it's so damn catchy.
~Jack Stauber makes weird animations and apparently, weird songs too. His album, Pop Food, is a pretty fun listen. I like Bothersome because it sounds like he's singing underwater.
~Baka Beyond makes for some nice easy listening.
The World Is Yours, Lil Boat 2. Trap trap.
Isaac Bernstein - Rice and Beans
This week has been all about relaxing after last weeks' exam onslaught. Accordingly, here are some tunes that I found out about and sequentially stored in my musical fridge to chill to.
Fouk- Heavy on the Bacon: Some relatively calm progressive funk/disco grooves. Great song to clear your mind to.
Folamour - Kickflipin' That Stuff: CHILLZONE R&B/Hiphop sounds with minor vocals.
Eric Lau & Kaidi Tatham Remix of Moonchild's Run away: These dudes somehow improved what I thought was perfection. The chill-hop type beats melange with Moonchild's smooth buttery voice so perfectly, it will certainly melt away your worries for its 3:28 duration.
Tennyson, Aloe Blacc- Body Language: Masterful organic-sounding, colorful, and nature-influenced Tennyson production with Aloe Blacc making crazy vocal riffs seem flawless in his luscious alto-tenor register. Oof. This tune takes me off campus to a mental oasis.
Summer Breeze- Ramsey Lewis: Stupid laid back keyboard synth/rhythm section jam. This tune serves as a reminder of the beauty of simplicity. Gosh. These guys for sure were sinning when recording this banger.
Frozen Grass - Etherwood: Some liquidstep to get back into the rhythm of the school week. Don't worry though; the fast tempo does NOT take away from the soothing chord progression and uber-silky vocals. Another brain cleaner IMO.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK THANKS FOR READING WJHU STUFF
Eduardo Sandoval - Forgets his Show Name
Oh! Frenchie - Mosie
Tangerine - Mosie
Sunshine - Mosie
Just listen to the Tangerine album by Mosie
Over you - Kasbo
Mosie's album got bops. Instead of a shake, I'd call it an ever-present rumble.
I like the composition of the Kasbo song
