Happy Friday! I feel like this month went by so fast. I'm excited that the weather in the northeastern hemisphere is starting to warm up. Below are my picks for some dope music to enjoy this weekend and beyond. It's all about the fellas (male singers) for this list.
Cool-Aid EP by Omac
Omac has sexy chill vocals paired with dope chillhop beats produced by one of my besties, Brandon Crumbly. This is great music to unwind to or play in the background for a chill gathering with friends over- when we're able to do that again. My favorite song is Freckles (Interlude); the whole LP is a vibe though. Take a listen on all popular music streaming platforms.
Songs From Earth EP by Trumaine Lamar
Trumaine's music has been featured on the blog before but he had been holding out on releasing new music to us for a while! Last week he dropped new EP, Songs From Earth, and it's the good R&B many of us are still craving. My favorite song is second on the list, 30 Days, because it shares a lot of our experiences and sentiments felt during the mandated shelter-in-place here in the States. I mean, he starts the song with "I only got one more Netflix series in me." How true is that?! Take a listen on all the popular music streaming platforms.
Limboland LP by Dornik
Dornik has also been featured on here before. Like Trumaine, he hadn't released anything new in a while. For this project, I could tell that he was inspired by the 1980's uptown fun sound that came out of Minneapolis music circuit a la Prince, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Morris Day and The Time. I love all those artists so I am here for this good work. Take a listen on all the popular music streaming platforms.
