Crispy New Cuts: 11/21/17
Demo Taped "Pack Of Gum"
In a similar lane as enigmatic UK electronic-pop provocateur Jai Paul, Atlanta’s Adam Alexander (aka Demo Taped) is an emerging producer/vocalist making crisp, colorful, and cool cuts. Gradually bubbling up over the past 2 years with some short EPs and stray singles, including this brand new missive, the future is looking bright for this kid.
DJ Seinfeld "U Hold Me Without Touch"
Lo-fi house poster-boy DJ Seinfeld went deep for his highly-anticipated album Time Spent Away From U on Lobster Theremin Records and while it’s a tad hit-and-miss overall, the chords on “U Hold Me Without Touch” are an absolute dream.
E Ruscha V "Who Are You"
A lovely slice of fuzzy 90s-steeped indie pop, thanks to this debut single from Melbourne’s Harriette Pilbeam aka Hatchie.
JKriv & Free Magic "Eunice"
Brooklyn label Razor-N-Tape consistently bring the dancefloor goodies, and this flip of Nina Simone’s “It Be’s That Way Sometime” from JKriv & Free Magic off the new 3-track The Eleanora EP is a top-notch groove.
Sabrina Claudio "Used To"
This dropped last month, but going on record to state that it’s quite fresh that quickly-ascending Miami R&B/pop vocalist Sabrina Claudio is bringing back slow R&B jams in a major (label) way on her debut album About Time. The syrupy-slow singles are all hot, yet I also love the sultry house vibes of “Used To” that’s buried towards the back-end of the record.
Talib Kweli "Traveling Light (Featuring Anderson .Paak & Kaytranada)"
