@@@ Conrad Schnitzler & Pole: Con-struct (Bureau B, 2017) Some euro-techno electronic music off an All Music weekly notable release email. I dig this first tune Wurm — it’s not a straight boom-titch beat. This is pretty spare music with a tad of funk to the beats and just a tad of synth cloud or thread for you to get with. This third tune, Lacht, continues with the undercover funk and the well aimed garnish. I went back to the GooglePimp and snagged this third tune because I’m feeling and because I give I give I give. And y’all don’t do shit, but that’s all right I’m not gonna guilt anyone. It’s cool you don’t do shit but if you feel like it you can peep this third track if you can manage to pull your head out of your bong and your iPhone and be bothered with nutritious music. Feel free to hit me up with some fat tracks, it’s not like I would say no.
@@@ Bleachers: Hate That You Know Me (RCA/Sony, 2017) A pre-release single off the Apple Music hot tracks section. I’m guessing from the vibes off this guy that this a white boy with a shitload of Prince records that he’s attempting to honkey-ice. The vocal melodies are especially bitten from Prince. Oh, I don’t know if I can place the track that he bit the vocal hook from. My advice for those of you who dig this guy is to forego and throw on some early pre-1999 Prince. A little Dirty Mind or whatnot.
@@@ The Dolleyrots: Whiplash Splash (Arrested Youth, 2017) Some super poppy SoCal style three chord power pop punk. Fronted by a lady that’s either strung out on Red Bull or naturally perky beyond belief (or both). Lots of power chords, rock drumming and big vocal hooks. If some of this energy went into world peace or a rotating anal dildo for Trump I would be more for it. Bouncy as fuck like a methed puppy.
