Acostumbrando - alejandrito argeñal

I came across this while scrolling through Bandcamp; and was immediately intrigued by the artwork. ‘Acostumbrando’ is a wave of warm old hollywood-esque strings; over which a gorgeously flavored analog beat flows, alongside chopped up vocal samples - this is truly glorious.

Baby’s First Balcony - Danny Scott Lane

This was another discovery on Bandcamp; the moment I saw slightly surreal, 70s-style artwork, I knew I had to listen. The full digital release of this album is out December 12th, there are currently four tracks available to listen to, ‘ Baby’s First Balcony’ being one of them. This is a plush, comforting blend of ambience and jazz; and feels like a record you would have accidentally come across in the attic; one that becomes a source of luxurious chilling.

Taken from the EP 'Beauty Of The Beats’ - this has the warm, slightly nostalgic quality of thinking back to the past; with its sunshine-drenched instrumentation gliding over an analog beat; giving way to something truly special, that shimmers, like a memory.

Taken from Farah’s glorious new album ‘Fatima’, ‘Sunblock’ is one to put on when you are by yourself, allowing yourself to recharge. The groove in this chorus is one you can’t not move to - this is ferocious, and invites you to fully soak in life.

Precious - Ruby Ivy

A gorgeously warm blend of r&b and soul; infused with lofi textures. Heavenly vocals glide over a gorgeous beat; the lament “ why do I feel like I need you to sustain me, I’m already standing alone” (something we all need to be reminded of from time to time) running throughout the song.
