Album of the Week:
What Could Possibly Go Wrong? – Dominic Fike
Sporadic, raw, concise, emotional. Florida-born Dominic Fike’s debut album plays like a demo tape of some of the most accessible tracks that are as wholly unique as they are streaming ready.
For fans of: Ryan Beatty, BROCKHAMPTON, Frank Ocean
Song(s) of the Week:
“my future” – Billie Eilish
Is it up to par with her previous releases? No, but “my future” is a showcase of an artist growing and experimenting, and a mid-song beat switch is all this song needs to insert itself in the audience’s memory
For fans of: The Internet, Rex Orange County
“By Any Means” – Jorja Smith
Jorja Smith has always been a strong singer and storyteller, but with “By Any Means,” the singer switches lanes. This ambitious track adopts a darker, bolder, and more assertive sound. Wow is this a great track.
For fans of: Kehlani, Drake
“Hands On U” – Michael Medrano
A quarantine bop, “Hands On U” is another strong track from the rising “Fluids” singer. Both relaxed and energetic, the sultry head banger is a lot of fun, mixing together Daft Punk inspired electronica with the signature pop sax that has become an integral aspect of pop music today.
For fans of: Dua Lipa, Troye Sivan
“No Time – RÜFÜS DU SOL Remix” – Lastlings, RÜFÜS DU SOL
They’re back baby! RÜFÜS DU SOL brings the heat on this track, remixing Lastlings’ “No Time” with a vibe that evokes the memory of some of the standouts of their smash album Solace. A much needed banger from a group that has been hanging relatively low since their 2018 record.
For fans of: Disclosure, ZHU
