In hopes to find more hobbies this summer, I am going to try my hand at blogging a little… I was thinking that “I would gently take care of two birds with one birdhouse,” by attaching some written words with the posting of my playlists. I have determined that my second Small Tape should be of established artists who released music in the last 5-6ish weeks. As I go forward I will be trying to highlight newer artists but in hopes of garnering some sort of audience, I thought it is prudent to cast a wider net hence the big name artists featured on this mix.
All that aside these songs bang! Gorillaz new album has been a blast to listen to the last few weeks, I keep finding myself slipping back into the hour long album. The song “She’s My Collar” feat. Kali Uchis bumpy synth hits hard throughout the track and Damon Albarn vocals hug the bounce. I am also amped with the following track off of Cashmere Cat’s debut album. The Kacy Hill feature it perfect to help promote her new album Like a Woman. Out June 30 via G.O.O.D Music/Def Jam, and is executive produced by Kanye West. Finally, The National, The War On Drugs, LCD Soundsystem are all back with some new music! All these bands are personal favorites and I can not wait until the full LPs are all release. I actually got a chance to buy Thinking of Places 12” on Record Store Day this year.
