Sunday Night Soul [Vol. 5]

Sunday Night Soul

It’s the middle of December, which for many of us means our Holiday break is just an arm’s length away. Of course there’s some hurdles to get through along the way. Whether it’s a hellish finals week packed with little to no sleep, or having to endure office parties while donning your ugliest Holiday sweaters (admittedly, the second option sounds a bit less stressful), we’re here to give you a few moments of reprise as you sort through your hectic schedule.

The 90′s are alive and well in this week’s edition of Sunday Night Soul. From old school remixes of Aaliyah, Sade and Mary J. Blige, to throwback tinged offerings from Uness, Phony Ppl, and Jeff Bernat, it’ll be nearly impossible for you not to feel at least a slight tinge of nostalgia. Of course we can’t forget about the present, and with that in mind, we’ve also got plenty of relaxing tunes from the likes of XOV, Daniel Wilson, Niia, Alina Baraz, Blackbear and many more. Now I know your time is precious, so before I take up any more of it, I’ll let you get started with the playlist below. We promise you won’t be disappointed.

[Soul] Ella Eyre – Love Me Like You

Ella Eyre
Love Me Like You

Beautiful songstress Ella Eyre has been making waves in the music scene. At just 19 years old, the British singer has a signature voice that immediately draws the listener’s attention on any track. Her latest single, “Love Me Like You,” finds the rising star delivering a soulful quality over Two Inch Punch‘s bass and horn-heavy production. There is a richness in the raw emotion of her voice and for a singer so young, this is a catchy ballad that listeners of all ages can get into. A bit of pop, jazz, and a little dance, this infectious single invokes a heavy tone that has a timeless quality to it. Stream the track above, and keep your eyes peeled for more from Ella as we head into 2014.

[Acoustic] Jaymes Young – Moondust (Stripped)

Jaymes Young
Moondust (Stripped)

Just a man and his guitar. Sometimes that’s all it takes to produce a masterpiece. We learned a few things from Jaymes Young during our last interview with him. First, he and his guitar have been attached at the hip for nearly a decade, and second, “Moondust” was one of his favorite creations from his well revered Dark Star mixtape. This “stripped” version of the single is exactly what it sounds like, breaking the song down to its very core elements. There’s an argument to be made here that this newer revision in its raw form may actually resonate better than the original, but I’ll leave the debate up to all of you. In the meantime, just appreciate the fact that we now have two versions of this spectacular tune.

[Good Lord] James Vincent McMorrow – Red

James Vincent McMorrow
Red Dust

Call it a man crush. Call me a fan boy. Whatever you want to label my affinity with James Vincent McMorrow’s heavenly voice is fine with me. I’ll calmly dodge your verbal arrows as I enjoy the other worldly experience that is listening to him sing.

In one of the most highly anticipated albums of 2014 (in my eyes, at least) we’re offered up another sampling of what’s to come from this Dubliner. With a slow strike of a bass drum, haunting vocal samples and some understated piano keys, James once again is able to take us away from all of our troubles, slowly melting away the week with his incredible voice.

Post Tropical is out on January 14th, and is guaranteed to be nothing short of sensational. With a voice like that, it’s hard to think that it would be anything less.

[NEW] Disclosure – Latch (DJ Premier Remix)

Latch DJ Premier
Latch (DJ Premier Remix)

The burst of music released over the holidays has commenced and, of all the tunes under the tree, Disclosure‘s upcoming Settle remix album has us especially excited. Today, after an impressive first glimpse, the UK-based electronic duo let loose the highly anticipated rework of “Latch” by legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier. While the original is an addicting masterpiece in itself, Premier slows the tempo down and adds a D’Angelo-esque piano melody with steady percussion making for a new-age take on the classic R&B of the 90s. The Settle remix album drops December 17th.

[NEW] Beyoncé – Beyoncé: The Visual Album

Superpower (feat. Frank Ocean)
Mine (feat. Drake)

The Holiday season is upon us, and in the spirit of giving Beyoncé has decided to drop a brand new album seemingly out of thin air. Titled Beyoncé: The Visual Album, the rather ambitious project features 14 tracks and 18 unique music videos. It’s difficult to determine what’s more remarkable here: the fact that Beyoncé can drop an album with virtually no promotion at all, or that she painstakingly took the time to shoot 18 individual music videos for all of these tracks without any details leaking out. This will certainly be an interesting experiment to keep our eyes on for sure, and we’d like to see what numbers Bey can pull off with her latest studio effort.

We’ve included some of our favorites here, but make sure to purchase the album on iTunes, which includes features from her husband Jay-Z, her daughter Blue Ivy, Drake and Frank Ocean. You can also catch previews for all her videos on YouTube.
