Give It Time Give It Time/Cuz This Ain’t No Race/You’ll Be Fine You’ll Be Fine/Do Whatever It Takes Oh/Just Realize Realize/It’s All What You Make It. -JMSM With Ta-Ku & Sango

Last month I had the pleasure of seeing JMSN live in San Francisco. If you don’t take anything else from this blog post, at least take this…if he is playing live in the city you live in and you have the chance to go…GO! I promise you will be thoroughly pleased that you went. Oh and he plays with a live band. Truly remarkable. I had it in my mind that he would have just sang with a DJ backing him but the live band aspect took it to a whole new level. The song I’m posting here is amazing but another great song to check out by JMSN is “The One.”

These days there’s been sooooo much talent that’s caught my ear and the artist has been from Australia. So it was almost no surprised when I looked up Ta-ku and found out he’s from the land down under. “Love After” is the first single off Ta-ku’s upcoming EP, Songs To Make Up To, releasing on June 12th! ┬áJMSN’s vocals mixed with the production on this track makes this song one not to be skipped over. There are so many different sounds that make this song aesthetically pleasing. It’s got this 90s-choir-modern-soulful-hiphop vibe to it. The track also features the works of Soulection‘s Sango.┬áTruly something special

Sell Me That Gold In Your Veins, I Want Your Fortress Next To Mine

Why Don’t We Open Up Sometime?/Sell Me That Gold In Your Veins/I Want Your Fortress Next To Mine/Every Nightmare On Your Plate/Can I Trust That You Won’t Mind? -Gallant

It’s been a reaaaaally long time since I’ve posted a new blog post but this song truly moved me to do so. Lately, I’ve had a thing for vocalists such as SZA, FKA Twig and this newcomer, Gallant. He hits all the right notes in all the right places to transcend directly to my soul. The way the song is written reminds me a bit of what Frank Ocean did on “Thinkin Bout You,” with all the contradictory ideas in order to prove one single point. Writing like that really catches my eye and ear. This song has been giving me LIFE for the last few weeks since it’s release. Listened to it on repeat for a couple days straight. Peep it below and I hope you enjoy the song as much as I do.
