Smile, It’s Your Birthday! is an EP that was written and recorded in the 7 days preceding it’s release on September 15th which is actually my birthday. The EP took shape after a late night writing session in which I decided to take on the task of seeing what I could conceptualize and create over the course of 7 days. I feverishly wrote and recorded these song over the first 4 days. The following 3 were spent mixing and editing. This is the final product, and I’m proud of it.

Rivers - Milk and Honey

I first came across Rivers a year or so ago.here on Tumblr. At the time she was simply going by Tiffany. The first song I heard from her was I Get Ill an honest portrait of a lover who can’t help but let in the same person who has continuously proven that they are not deserving of the undying affection that has been bestowed on them. That song was the soundtrack to many car rides over the course of the summer. I knew then that this is someone who I needed to make note of. Fast forward and the artist formerly known as Tiffany is positioning herself to make a roaring entry into the music world and be mentioned side by side with her contemporaries (BANKS, Jhene Aiko, Sasha Keable, etc.) Rivers is a primed for the spotlight and she’s got the music and visuals to prove it. Follow her on her journey.

Goddess doesn’t actually arrive until September 9th, but BANKS has been generous with the amount of music she’s released prior to the album, and I’m pretty confident she’s going to deliver with her debut. All of these projects are getting the lion share of plays in my music library currently. Tack on Mac Miller’s Faces and Childish Gambino’s Because the Internet and that’s pretty much what I’m listening to these days.  

  • FKA twigs - LP1
  • Banoffee - Banoffee
  • Cassie Steele - Patterns

FKA twigs - Give Up (Live @ Glasslands 4/16/14)

This is currently my favorite track from LP1. I hope I’ll be able to catch her at Terminal 5 in November. twigs is such a great artist and performer. I’m entranced just by watching videos of her live performances, so actually being in attendance must be a hell of an experience.

Complex Eternal x Mac SoullEye Can’t 

This was supposed to be packaged as a bonus track on Undone. Mac was originally supposed to be on Your Pain, but technical difficulties arose at that time, and I had to proceed without him on the track. Fast forward to May 23rd the day of the release, and he’s talking about how he isn’t on the album. I said it’s not too late. I sent him this track. He wrote his verse and recorded it that day, as did I. He was unable to return me the track at that time though. It all worked out, because here that track is now for your listening pleasure. We haven’t collaborated in a few years. This is a rare event, people. Download it from soundcloud. Grab, Undone as well if you haven’t already.

Laura Misch & Tom Misch | Follow

This is beautiful, soulful and jazzy with a touch of hip-hop. The sax and those drums and a good clean male vocal to bring it all together. I recommend visiting their respective soundclouds. I could vibe to their music for hours on end.

Complex Eternal | Brooklyn Is Burning

The team really likes this track. It’s from the forthcoming “Undone”. It’s also on the EP I have with Taiji which you can get to by clicking through the above link. If you’ve been following me for a while, or reading my poetry, this is to serve as a conclusion to the series of Brooklyn poems. You don’t have to read them to understand, but I suppose it would provide more depth. Undone is my best work yet. Can’t wait to share it.

Kiesza - Hideaway 

In cinematography there is nothing I enjoy more than a well executed long take. It’s not something you see everyday, so when directors, subjects, and crew take the time to choreograph a sequence that lasts longer than your average scene and is shot with one camera, I take notice. On top of this being a great song, Kiesza, Ljuba Castot, and Rami Samir Afuni directed a very entertaining long take music video that features some great choreography. 

Keep up with Kiesza:
