I appear to have made another super long playlist. Clocking in at over three hours, I go deeper into different genres than usual. I start out with my favorite alternative/electronica as usual, but I quickly make the shift to hip-hop with one of my favorite tracks in recent memory called “Here” by Alessia Cara. After that we briefly dip into the acoustic life but come back with some alt-rock provided by Fickle Friends and Alejandro Meola. For some reason a nu-disco trend has been rising from the ashes of the 70s and a couple of the songs are actually good so you get a taste of that with Years and Years before we move into some heavier electronic. The last few songs are ultra-chill tropical house that will hopefully clear your head after listening to so many genres. Enjoy the setlist below.
Two of my favorite new artists are back with a super-chill collaboration. With a male-female vocal overlay reminiscent of Oh Wonder, Jaymes and Phoebe start the song off smoothly before Jaymes takes his verse. Don’t worry, Phoebe will get her turn later in the song. The chorus is definitely my favorite part. It’s slow but catchy. The song has a lot of focus on ambient noise slowly building up the energy. Halfway through the chorus the volume of sound kind of sneaks up on you and becomes almost overwhelming, but it had been a slow crescendo the whole time. Check out Phoebe Ryan’s tour dates here (Jaymes isn’t on tour right now), and the track below. As a special treat, I’ve also included my favorite songs from each of them individually.
