A regular feature: Single songs and covers I’ve heard lately, usually submitted to me, that you need to get your ears on. Pronto!
Tonight, a focus on the mellow and slow and sweet. Let’s start with a gal named Lemon, who has made a tight little tune…
Okay, this cut isn’t mellow in the same way as Lemon, but it’s slow for grimey rap. I swear Action Bronson is the second coming of Ghostface.
And speaking of slow-moving hip hop, just when I thought I’d heard enough covers of Kanye West’s Runaway, I heard this one. Fire.
Wilde Music covers Snow Patrol. I really like the complexity of the beats and breaks. It seems really simple until you really listen to it.
