[Hip-Hop] Big Sean – Thank You

Big Sean
Thank You

A nice little gift to top off a great music Monday comes in the form of a previously unreleased Big Sean track. In his typical fashion, the Detroit emcee talks about his achievements providing inspiration for anyone hoping to reach success in their life’s pursuits. As its title suggests, this new track is essentially a hip-hop version of the Thank You note penned over a jazzy, feel-good instrumental. This one’s a great pick me up to end the start of your week. Peep above and gobble out like its Thanksgiving.

Sunday Night Soul (On a Monday) [Vol. 12]

Sunday Night Soul

Now that Super Bowl XLVIII is over and done with, Sunday’s are going to be a little less eventful for quite awhile. Luckily for you, you have Sunday Night Soul to look forward to in its absence. Yes, before we begin, we know it’s Monday. We apologize for the delay folks, but that game really drained us out (read: put us to sleep). As a fan who’s had his heart broken multiple times over, I sympathize with all the Broncos fans out there tonight. My only hope is that this week’s serving of soul can be the first step towards recovery for all of you (including many of my fellow ninjas).

This week’s edition is packed with plenty of surprises: with collaborations between Cashmere Cat and Ludacris, unlikely mashups of Justin Timberlake and Dpat, a spectacular cover of “Hold On, We’re Going Home” by Vancouver Sleep Clinic and GXNVXS, and a SevnthWonder trifecta, there’s plenty of treasure tucked away deep in tonight’s set. This may also be the best lineup we’ve ever assembled in terms of debuts. Twin Caverns, Niykee Heaton, Ego Ella May, Adna, Clare Maguire, Maurice, bizZarh, Rook Milo, Black Atlass, Neo Safari, Moody Good♡ EMOJI KING ♡ and i.o. all make worthy additions to the Sunday Night Soul family. Our veterans meanwhile seemed to have doubled their efforts this week, with MadeauxΔGØLDWYN , Fortune, Duncan Gerow, abstract youth and SevnthWonder all making multiple appearances. This is one of those weeks where we wish we could highlight each song individually, but unfortunately there isn’t enough time for that. Instead, we’ll leave the judgments up to you (although we’re fairly certain you’ll enjoy each and every single one of them).

[Sensational] Vancouver Sleep Clinic & GXNXVS – Hold On We’re Going Home (Drake Cover)

Vancouver Sleep Clinic & GXNXVS
Hold On We're Going Home (Drake Cover)

We’re going to be honest with you. We’ve heard more interpretations of Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” than Peyton Manning has heard condolences. It’s been one of the most remixed and covered tunes in the past year, and it’s not hard to see why. While we’ve braved through a veritable onslaught of medicore takes on our neighbor to the north, this tune stands proudly amongst the mire.

17 year old Brisbane native Vancouver Sleep Clinic has gracefully adorned our humble blog walls before, giving us warm-n-fuzzies with his glorious vocals in “Collapse.” This time around, he’s partnered with an someone we’re unfamiliar with, GXNXVS.

The end result is a smoother than silk, icy cold, yet smoking hot cover of this widely popular Drake tune. It’s downright enchanting, begging to be listened to over and over again. Take a listen, and try not to hit repeat.

[Indie Rock] Model Aeroplanes – Innocent Love

Innocent Love

Take a look out your window. Can you see snow piled up? If you opened the door, would you see your breath as you curse Old Man Winter? We’re right there with you, wishing we could witness temps somewhere north of 70 degrees. While we know this isn’t possible while living in Colorado, we know that there’s some infectious indie rock via Model Aeroplanes that can help assuage our winter-time blues.

Coming out of Scotland, this pop rock quartet has a sound ready for a trip to the beach. Something about the playful bassline, catchy guitar riffs, and dance-inspiring drums has us reaching for our flip flops, ready to be drenched in the warm summer sun.

[R&B] Miguel – Simplethings


Despite the stardom and accolades that come with being Miguel, the crooner proves that he can still appreciate the “Simplethings” in life with his most recent single. Created for the soundtrack for HBO’s GirlsGirls, Vol. 2: All Adventurous Women Do…, this new tune features the singer describing the desired traits in his ideal mate. In a perfect world, he’d love to have someone to lay with, laugh with and (of course) smoke with, that’s also real and true. It sounds easy enough, and we hope Miguel eventually finds that special someone. In the meantime, we can listen to him sing about it below. You can pre-order Girls, Vol. 2: All Adventurous Women Do… on iTunes now, which also includes contributions from Beck, Vampire Weekend, Lily Allen, Jenny Lewis and more.

This sensational tune is out March 24th on Polkadot Recordings. Put this on your calendar with a star and a smiley.

[NEW] Ellie Gouding – Life Round Here (Feat. Angel Haze) (Prod. Noah Breakfast)

Ellie x Angel
Ellie Goulding
Life Round Here (Feat. Angel Haze)

When James Blake released his Chance The Rapper assisted remix to “Life Round Here,” late last year, we assumed that would be the ultimate version of the single that we’d hear. Then again, we never expected a team up quite like this. Covering a James Blake song is certainly no easy task, but this revamped crew consisting of Ellie Goulding, Angel Haze and Noah Breakfast, give the original a run for its money, rebuilding the track completely from the ground up. Crafting a dense, ambient instrumental for the ladies to play with, Noah opts for a sounds that’s arguably far more melancholic than Blake’s forerunner. Ellie’s vocals float through the track almost aimlessly, yet they still feel purposeful as they lead in to a fierce verse from Angel Haze. Stream the single above, and let us know which version is your true favorite.
