Young Summer – Taken

Young Summer is the project of Washington, DC’s Bobbie Allen. The few songs she’s put out so far are emotive, haunting and ethereal, with lyrics to match. ‘Taken’ is the latest output, and it’s simplicity is it’s true strength, allowing you to be taken into a trance by those sweet, smoky vocals. An album is expected later this year on Ready Set Records, and I really hope it’s full of this dreamy, lush sound. If this doesn’t stir up some emotions, you might need to check your pulse.

For something a bit more upbeat, but still melancholy and hypnotizing, check out this older Young Summer tune, ‘Waves That Rolled You Under.’

Owl Eyes – Jewels & Sapphires (Goldroom Remix)

MF Goldroom, this dude just keeps on surprising me. Considering I know him personally you would think that would not be possible but it is his ability to bring the authenticity and charisma of his spirit to his music that really sets him apart. With each remix and original track Goldroom shows a different aspect of his style, staying signature-Goldroom but incorporating different facets. If that seems overly intellectualized——–he consistently makes music that makes you want to dance. With no further ado….Here is his latest, a remix of Melbourne sensation  Owl Eyes.
