Coast Modern: Guru

  I absolutely love this band. If you have not given the last track “Animals” a spin, I suggest you do so here. Their newest track, “Guru”, snuck through the cracks but once I gave it a listen I had to share it. It has a wonderfully spacey and delicious tropical groove with lyrics that […]

Emma Louise: West End Kids

  While I was watching the clouds roll in and blanket the sunshine, this track came across my desk from Austrailian chanteuse Emma Louise. Her beautiful voice was a soothing addition to my melancholy mood, her lyrics touching memories from a dream I had last night about past friends and the sweet adventures we had. […]

Ryan Hemsworth: Burying the Sun

  Canada’s Ryan Hemsworth released a new track today hot off the heels of the amazing “How It Felt” released earlier this month (which slipped through the cracks here at What’s Hip¿ and is an EXCELLENT track). “Burying the Sun” is a bit more experimental in nature, mixing some dope beats with eastern percussive elements […]

1 2 Watch 4 – Jacob Alexander: Again

  After a looong time away, this track appropriately eases me back into the face-paced nature of the music world. “Again” by Jacob Alexander is dreamy and powerful, invoking a triumphant, untouchable feeling within me. It is hard to believe it was written by a 17-year-old high schooler! Get lost in the ambiance and make sure […]

Lindsay Kupser: Quiet Songs EP

Canadian artist Lindsay Kupser’s new release Quiet Songs strongly highlights the singer’s soothing vocals. Every track on the album is melodic and dreamy, taking you on a wonderous, peaceful journey. My favorite song off the album is “Couldn’t Move To Brooklyn”, where her voice soars over sparse piano and acoustic guitar, creating a track that is trance-like […]

1 2 Watch 4 – WNWD: HIGHER

  I became aware of WNWD after discovering their track “Cruise” – which is an outstanding modern r&b track with gorgeous vocals, stellar production and a soothing melody. They have just released a new single, “Higher”, which has a slightly different feel and vibe. It is a hazy number with a darker feel that moves along […]

  There is a very sinister feel to the “Sun City Creeps” paired with an upbeat percussive element, which is intoxicating. The horns create a lovely Spanish feel and we are brought to present day with the synths in the background. Woods new album is dropping April 8, and I anticipate it will be one […]

  I love the music from the 60’s and 70’s; its rawness has an innate ‘humanness’ to it, which I find lacking in a lot of today’s pop music. Wesley Fuller harks back to that golden era of music while bringing a fresh, current sound to his new melodic track “Melvista”. It’s immediately catchy, filled […]

  Another track that came across my desk at the oh-so-correct time… making my day a bit brighter and soothing the parts that are slow to come to the light. Meghan’s soothing voice is layered over some excellently produced instrumentals creating a lovely sonic playground for your ears… keep them open for more sounds from LA’s SLEEPLUST – […]
