Listening to Nu Guinea is like submerging yourself in everything that is sweet. Fun landscapes. You're transported to a different place while listening. The power of music.
Lionel Williams is a multimedia artist and musician. Vinyl Williams is his band. I first discovered their music on a Spotify playlist that Ruban of Unknown Mortal Orchestra put together on there. This was a couple years ago now I believe. "World Soul" was the song. One of those songs that instantly grabbed me. Soothing vocals in the midst of psychedelic layers. Switching over to "Feedback Delicates"...
This music video is awesome. It's creative, it's fun. I was messing around with it a few days ago after work. 360 videos are popping up more on YouTube as time goes on. Especially in this VR era.
Pleasure Suck is one of those albums that sounds better when you listen to it in one sitting. It's an amazing record. Jagged turns, mood shifts and blending landscapes throughout. "Cops Come Looking" is still a great standalone song though. It's a small dose of how the rest of the album is - really good.
Mr. Twin Sister is back. It's been a little over four years since their last studio record. "Echo Arms" was just dropped in the last couple of weeks. It's a banger. Summer vibes, groovy vibes.
Bonny Doon hail from Detroit. "A Lotta Things' is off their sophomore effort Longwave. The album came out earlier this year. It's a song that's definitely relatable. A catchy, relatable song to wrap up this week's list. I'm excited to see where Bonny Doon goes as a band. Their music ceiling is high.
