“Grand Canyon”- The Wind and the Wave
“We Belong Together”- Myzica
“Loners”- Arum Rae
“Let Me Love You”- DJ Snake feat Justin Bieber
“De Pies a Cabeza”- Maná
DJ Snake debut album features artists like Justin Bieber, Migos, Travis Scott, and more. Encore is a true Pop and EDM record, as pulls from multiple genres and sounds. The lead single “Middle” we released in October 2015. Since that time, the song “Talk” featuring George Maple was released in June 2016. The fourteen track album is enhanced by not only the diverse music but the work of the many collaborators on the record. Truthfully, some tracks are hit or miss but, the album is carefree and a easy listen. It’s not earth-shattering or going to receive many musical accolades (and it shouldn’t) but it’s definitely an album that can accentuate your weekend plans.
Highlight tracks: “The Half”, “Middle”, “Oh Me Oh My”, “4 Life”, “Let Me Love You”
Steve Aoki announced a new project last night.
His first single is a collaboration with Autoerotique. Listen here:
- F.M.A. by Grace (Pop)
19 year old singer-songwriter Grace Sewell’s debut album (Forgive My Attitude) is a very good vocal display and follow up to last year’s hit single “You Don’t Own Me”
- California by Blink-182 (Alt Rock)
The seventh album from this famous and polished band. “Bored To Death” was the first single from the release and the hit became their first number one single in over twelve years.
- You In All The Wrong Ways by Sara Watkins (Folk, Bluegrass, Country)
This is Sara’s third solo release outside of the bank Nickel Creek.The album has a mature sound and great storytelling. This is front woman with something to say and the artistry to illustrate it.
- Waking at Dawn by Roy Woods (Rap)
The debut for this OVO rapper is a complete vibe out album. “Gwan Big Up Urself” is a dancehall track that spotlights this artist’s genre diversity.
- The Bride by Bat For Lashes (Art Pop, Electronica)
This boundary pushing release from this English singer songwriter is a revelation. The album has cool sonic sounds, dark intrigue, and eerily striking lyrics.
