Sam Era has come a long way since she participated in competitive jazz and scatting in high school. Equally as impressive, her talents have spread and her tastes reflect an amalgamation of her art, but at its most sad. She has curated a soundtrack called “Broken Hearts” just for us, so take time to turn it up and feel all the feels.
From the opening chords of Brooklyn-based alt electronica musician Tesha‘s “Funeral”, you can tell she’s not playing around. The percussion is almost tribal as Tesha’s ominous tones as she sings a song with a title befitting of said tones. It’s absolutely gorgeous, but be prepared to feel all the feels.
London-based rock collective Amber Run – comprised of Tomas Sperring, Joshua Keogh, and Henry Wyeth – just released their latest track “Carousel”, and we have to admit that we’re quite smitten. Opening with slow, careful vocals. In comes the instrumentals, notable percussion, and then that insane bass. The song has absolute staying potential, and Top 10 single” written all over it. (Just a note: I’ve literally never claimed that about a song.)
Recently, Samuel Proffitt and Yoke Lore partnered on a track release, and we’re all about it. Seriously, take indie electronic musician Samuel Proffitt and pair him with the talents of indie alternative favorite Yoke Lore, and you’ve got the gorgeous, echoing sounds of “Stringnoise”. A meandering, delicate track, there is a hard-hitting quality to it, glittered with the magic of the season in each note.
We probably don’t have to convince you at this point, but it’s definitely worth a listen.
Lyrics: You can wait through the hours and days for the dark nights to find you Silicon weights on your neck every day don’t trigger the good man inside you Make it hot sweat, feel it in your chest Put it in a body maybe that will save us Before you get a heart, you gotta get taken apart
Keep up with Yoke Lore here and Samuel Proffitt here.
