[Neo-Soul/Pop] Caroline Smith & Lizzo – Let ‘Em Say

Caroline Smith & Lizzo
Let Em Say

The city of Minneapolis has been quietly carving out a name for itself as one of America’s most eclectic metropolis’ for years now. From their budding culinary and artistic communities to a thriving indie music scene; it’s safe to say we’ve had a watchful eye on the Minnesotan hotbed with a passion. So when we heard two of Minneapolis’ most revered female artists, Caroline Smith & Lizzo, were collaborating on a new tune to benefit the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota we had to wrap our ears around it at once. A gliding R&B laced pop diddy on the surface, “Let ‘Em Say” was recorded to promote the empowerment of girls and women around the world and after multiple plays, it was clear the tune’s lyrical content rolls much deeper than its inspirative instrumentation. Both vocalists’ respective incantations playfully bounce off one another to create a saccharine sweet listen; while it remains next to impossible not to add a little hip-wiggle while getting your aural fix on to this one.

It’s truly quite enlightening to see two young, burgeoning artists use their respective artistic mediums to get behind such a worthy and noble cause. Caroline describes this collaboration as a “celebration and recognition of all the ladies out there that were told they were ‘too this’ and ‘not enough that.’ This is for all of the mamas out there busting their asses and all of the girls and women out there that make us proud to hold a microphone”, While Lizzo added: “We’re liberating ourselves as women in this industry and as citizens in this industry and as human beings, and we’re so excited to be able to share that with everybody. When we made “Let ‘Em Say” it was so gratifying, because the song is everything we had been trying to get off of our chest.” Both performers will invest in their vision by donating a portion of the proceeds from this syrupy pop burner to the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota through a “Pay What You Can” on Bandcamp here, so why not do a little bit of good in this world and throw a few bucks to a pair of incredibly talented, altruistic and uber bad-ass musicians to start your week. Stream “Let ‘Em Say” above for the perfect Monday pick me up, and if you missed our lovely interview with Caroline Smith back in February, let her charm your socks off here while you listen.

[MEGA SUMMER 2014] Vol 2: Hip-Hop & R&B Playlist

tmnsummerhiphop-600x433

Summer is an incredibly precious season to us, because in our belief it represents the very best that music has to offer. Whether it’s the slew of magnificent releases that find their way onto our pages, or the breathtaking outdoor festivals and concerts that mesmerize and captivate our attention, there’s no doubt in our minds that music and summer share a truly magical relationship. Going on our second year now, our MEGA SUMMER PLAYLISTS are our ultimate ode to the season, as we pay tribute to the tracks that have soundtracked our journey over the past few months.

Returning bigger and badder than ever, our series chronicles summer’s very best offerings across four different genres. Earlier this month, we debuted the first playlist, which consisted of Indie Rock and Folk singles. Today’s selection of tracks captures the true essence of summer, from breezy and relaxed R&B, to the most turnt-up rap songs on the planet. Believe it or not, we still have two more massive playlists left to share, with a wide array of Alternative tracks on deck for our next release before we wrap things up with our EDM playlist.

We hope this playlist helps you squeeze out the last ounces of summer, while serving as a reminder of how great this season truly was. Enjoy!

[Future-House] Mary J. Blige – Family Affair (Pakem Edition)

Mary J. Blige ∞ Family Affair (Pakem Edition)

Another work week is almost in the books, and yet another young producer has been added to our radar of ‘ones to watch’ through the tail end of 2014. Seemingly popping up out of nowhere on our Soundcoud feed was this groovy little remix of Mary J. Blige’s timeless “Family Affair” from 19 year old French electronic producer Pakem, and it held our undivided attention from the jump-off. Pakem’s remix fuses a hollow future tipping bassline with a neo-garage soul and sensibility we haven’t seen exhibited since hearing Disclosure’s early demos before they were signed to Greco-Roman. While not much is currently known about our newest electronic crush, we’re certainly going to be all ears as his already mature library grows. As an even sweeter bonus for your Friday, Pakem’s giving this one away on the house, so be sure to snag a copy here before the weekend kicks into high gear.

[Chill] Galimatias – Night Owl

artworks-000088633861-ygezqj-original
Galimatias
Night Owl

A little over a week ago, Denmark native, Galimatias sent the internet down to the very depths of the ocean floor with his stunning track, “Ocean Floor Kisses.” We definitely felt as if we were caressing each and every groove found in the elusive abyss beneath us after subjecting our ears to such beauty. Just a few moments ago, Galimatias unleashed his latest original stunner, “Night Owl”, in which we were forced to step back for a moment and truly listen to this on an entirely different cognitive level.

“Night Owl” incorporates a multitude of production elements that collectively exude something truly ethereal. With its futuristic jabby synths, haunting reverberated vocals, and eerie chilled out vibe, Galimatias creates a type of darkness for all of us to emerge ourselves into. “Night Owl” delivers with such finesse and delicacy that collectively polish a side of electronic music we’ve yet to fully appreciate. Before you press play, make sure to turn your chill factor up because you’re about to stay up all night with this one.

Sunday Night Soul

Hey there ninjas, we know we’re a day late on the Sunday Night Soul, but unfortunately we encountered some technical difficulties last night as we were trying to get this up. Not to worry though, because things are finally up and running again on our end, meaning we can finally provide you with the wonderful soul you deserve. Though we weren’t there to help kickstart your week as we usually are, we’re hoping we can at least help make your Tuesday a little more special, an honor we only share with Makonnen. Given our tardiness, we’re going to keep the writing short this week to make up for the extra day’s wait we put you through. While it’s not quite Sunday, we hope you enjoy the selection we have for you all the same.

[Feelings] Kilter – Coward (feat. Ngaiire)

artworks-000088381901-3ncx46-original
KILTER
Coward (feat. Ngaiire)

Well it’s late as hell and we’re still going to post the latest Kilter track. It’s a little past 11 PM PST and 4 PM Australia time so we figure it’s acceptabe to post this regardless of the time difference only because we’re ninjas and we want to get you the latest and greatest music – even if it’s past all of our bedtimes.

Now that we got that little spiel out of the way we can get to the juice of this exciting new tune from one of our favorite Australian baes, Kilter. After a long period of being stuck in limbo (and not having updated his SoundCloud with his new music), Kilter finally unleashed the fourth tune off his latest EP, Shades (out now on iTunes), in which he reminds us all why patience truly is a virtue.

With a title like “Coward”, one can only imagine what sparked the creation behind this stunning number. Often times we question the purpose of certain songs in order to satisfy our existential train of thought; half the time we don’t really find that resolve to fill that empty void. After listening to “Coward” over and over again, it began to hit us that humans spend way too much time digging deep for something that might not actually exist; it may also be that the answer is right in front of us and we are just oblivious to the truth that is right in front of our eyes. We don’t really know what the answer is until we dive a little deeper into the mind.

In “Coward”, Kilter tells an intricate story that only we, the listeners, can subjectively define through our own experiences. At the end of our journey, we are able to say that we found our resolve within the sound frequencies themselves. The conclusive message we perceived may not be the same as yours, but hey, that’s perfectly ok because we think that’s what Kilter wants this song to represent. With its powerful resonance and impeccable progression, we cannot help but be enchanted by both Kilter’s production and the stunning vocal from the beautiful Ngaiire. The moment words flowed from her mouth and into our ears, we instantly became over-encumbered with a range of emotions which forced our souls to embark on the cleanse of a lifetime. We hope you all feel this much power from this song because we seem to be filled to the brim with feels…and we aren’t complaining in the slightest.

[Lo-Fi] Spooky Black – Leaving EP

leaving

You were probably just as confused as we were when Spooky Black a.k.a Lil Spook, released his music video for “Without You” back in February. “Is this kid serious?”, “Why is this so low quality?”, and “What is type of music called?” were among some of the questions that came to mind.

With the release of his Leaving EP, the 15-year-old singer from Minnesota gives us a peek of what his music is really about. It consists of eight melancholy tunes, all titled in lower-cased letters and in such nonchalance. Collaborating with producers like Kid Hnrk, Psynum and Smitty The BG, this EP is a full on display of Spooky Black’s vocal talent and musical style over the dreamy, slow, lo-fi and occasional trap-style beats. The sustain added to his vocals accentuates the quirky yet creepy style of his songs, and with him dressing in all black attire in the “Without You” video, you can kind of guess where this is going.

Put it this way, Spooky Black is sort of like the R&B version of King Krule. Similar to his music, you either love it or hate it. We definitely love him in a weird kind of way. The whole EP is available off his soundcloud, so go get a copy here and tell us what you think!
