(31) Days of Good//12.8.17

“Please,” might be Rhye’s first new song in four years, but the duo haven’t skipped a beat. The production is sensual and magical and Milosh’s vocals glide effortlessly along. If you’re in the baby makin’ mood, “Please” is essential.

I know very little about Skrap. I can tell you they are a Norwegian two-piece with backgrounds in jazz. Combine that jazz with a bit of hip hop, electro, and R&B and you’ve got quite the banger.

Kicking off the album is the track “Dragonfly“. A high-pitched drawl of an instrumental starts the spectacular song off. Beautiful vocals that send shivers down the spine really create an atmospheric sound to this gloriously elegant piece of music. A slight rock edge is added into the song about halfway through, only adding further layers to this never-stops-giving music. A perfectly delicious way to start an album. You’ve certainly gained me as a fan, Pumarosa. (via WPGM)

On his first solo record, Rostam reminds us what makes Vampire Weekend (and Discovery) so special. “Bike Dream” might be the most Vampire Weekend-esque track on Half-Light, but it’s so good I can’t help but not feature it on this years (31) Days of Good. Rostam’s reserved vocals, paired with the loud and industrious production, combine for a refreshing and accessible offering.
