Far Alone (feat. E-40 & Jay Ant)
“Far Alone” was already one of our early favorites from G-Eazy‘s upcoming album, These Things Happen, but now it’s ready to undergo the remix treatment. The talented emcee no longer has to kick it solo, recruiting Bay Area legend, E-40, to chip in with a brand new verse. The song is all about making it on your own as an independent artist, and overcoming adversity in the face of doubt, something we’d say Eazy has accomplished pretty successfully. While we’d heard Eazy’s story on the original, E-40 provides some insight into the early days of his career with his contribution to the upbeat single as well.
While there’s no indication whether this’ll be on These Things Happen, we’re looking forward to hearing more from the upcoming record in the coming months. Stream the terrific tune above, and make sure to catch G-Eazy on the road with Rockie Fresh, Tory Lanez, and a few others during their nationwide tour.
Easily one of my new favorites, singer Eoin French teams up with producer Ian Ring to release Talos debut single “Tethered Bones.” This track mixes different layers of emanating beats that perfectly compliment a voice reminiscent of Bon Iver.
“Tethered Bones” has an incredibly original sound, which is super refreshing for a song about the complications of love and relationships. The introduction of pulsing beats that flow into French’s instrumental voice almost sounds like the echo of a beating heart. These beats taper off at the opening of the vocals and for good reason; the melody found in French’s voice needs little support. He has the sort of voice that would seriously make anything worth listening to. But even with his stand-alone, radiating tone, we absolutely love the soul and spirit that come from the composition of sounds underlying such a captivating singer.
There’s just something about “Tethered Bones” that is so infectious and emotional. It isn’t hard for a song to evoke deep emotion, but it is unusual for a song to leave you feeling euphoric while also embodying the pain and anguish of an emotion as complex as love. That’s what this track is all about: expressing the complicated transformation of love.
“Tethered Bones” just gets better and better each time you listen to it, and now Eoin French and Ian Ring have some pretty high expectations to live up to with this new project.
No matter how hard you try, you can’t bring down The Kooks.
Remaining relatively quiet after releasing their third album Junk of the Heart in 2011, the boys from Brighton premiered their newest track “Down” on BBC Radio 1 last night.
Co-written and produced by rising hip-hop producer Inflo, “Down” sounds unlike anything The Kooks have ever released. With it’s funky beats and infectious vocals, the new single from The Kooks is a borderline R&B, certainly groovy track. Guitarist Hugh Harris provides razor-sharp guitar licks that carefully maneuver around frontman Luke Pritchard’s anthemic vocals. Pritchard described the track as having an “Electric Church” vibe to it, sounding “modern in production, but really going back to that kind of call and response church music.” Fans of classic Kook’s tunes may be apprehensive about the latest track from the band, but anyone who likes to get “Down” will love this song.
