Lettuce — ‘Checker Wrecker’ ft Big Tony & Jungle Boogie
An array of funky beats and trippy lights ‘Checker Wrecker’ by Lettuce is pretty smooth and features big names like Big Tony and Jungle Boogie. Lettuce has worked with an array of big names such as Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Skrillex. Currently, on a European tour throughout July, this is one band you won’t want to miss. Just give ‘Checker Wrecker’ a listen and you’ll understand. The music video is a fun time from jamming to playing basketball with trash cans. These guys are laid back. The music video is shot like a dreamy haze, clip after clip of live performances and studio time intertwined to make for a good time.
Mo Lowda & The Humble — Ready Coat
Remember ‘Pearls’ by Mo Lowda & The Humble? Well, the wait is over for their anticipated new album Ready Coat. This album has a total of ten songs with ‘Pearls’ featuring as the title track. We have to say the keys set these guys apart. Their sound is so unique and old school it feels like we’re walking in a daydream. The vulnerability just oozes out of each lyric, innocent and sweet like a blissful nap laying in the sun. We hope you’re building that summer playlist, don’t miss out on these tunes.
Young Thieves — Darker Dreams EP
‘Home’ by Young Thieves was just the tip of the iceberg. Now, they’ve dropped their EP Darker Dreams. Good old ‘Home’ is the title track on the six-song EP with songs including ‘Skinny Dip’, the beats are heavily bass filled with a light voice that excites the system. Listen to the Darker Dreams EP by Young Thieves. You won’t regret it!
OTR ft Vancouver Sleep Clinic
Like a lullaby sung from the soul ‘Moon’ by OTR, ft Vancouver Sleep Clinic is soothing. You’ll be dreaming on a cloud as the music’s steady beat pulses and the vocals have a ton of alteration, making it otherworldly. Just energetic enough for a chill dance tune but mellow enough to sleep to, we love this versatile beat! ‘Moon’ is a track off the upcoming album Lost At Midnight dropping on April 24th. This is a great indication that this album will be a hit.
Emmrose — ‘Take Me With You’
‘Take Me With You’ is an extremely beautiful track. From it’s smooth melody to its rich lyrics, it truly an emotive song. The way she sings the lyrics so effortlessly makes her emotions shine through in every note. Emmrose’s upcoming EP Hopeless Romantics will release March 20th and if this song doesn’t make you excited for it, we don’t know what will. We expect the EP to be full of vulnerable tracks and endlessly playable melodies.
Blimes and Gab ft IAMSU
There’s no other way to describe it, ‘Magic’ is a whole ass bop. Blimes and Gab delivered some juicy vocals on this track, with Iamsu’s rap verse bringing an extra element to the song. This tracks melodies are inviting and exhilarating, which calls for this ‘Magic’ to be added to every club playlist everywhere. We are stoked for their debut album to drop on April 3rd and we have no doubt they are going to serve us up some more bops. We foresee this duo taking over the rap game very soon.
Riell is unbelievable! Her vocals are so smooth and soulful, and she has a natural raw emotion in her voice that gives her a unique sound. ‘Stubborn’ is a very catchy track with some pretty intense emotional lyrics as she sings about internal struggle. If this song is any indication of how her debut album Paradise is going to be then we are set to have our minds blown. She will for sure be taking the music industry by storm, and this song is going to help her do just that!
The Daily Buzz
