This 5@5 morning playlist consists of LVRS, Steve Forbert, The Astronots, and more.
Miriam Tamar – Who We (Morsy Remix)
Since Luis Fonsi’s globally-received “Despacito” featuring Daddy Yankee, the mainstream North American market has become more acceptable to Latin music. If you’re one of those people, who enjoy Latin dance music, you might like the remix to “Who We” by Miriam Tamar. Watch the sandy desert video now.
LVRS – Now Is Light
LVRS, a Jackson, Michigan musical band, shared a dreamy video for a track entitled, “Now Is Light.” The warm five-minute visual seems to be a glimpse of the past. It reminds me most of the theme song of the Wonder Years. Check out the official video below. Personally, I like the song a lot. “Now Is Light”, the LP, is out now.
Steve Forbert – Tonight I Feel So Far Away From Home (Jason Crosby cover)
Steve Forbert’s voice is relaxing, but it’s usually the case with Classic Rock music. Though his voice is soothing, there’s a deep problem in the words of the song. As you listen to the song I want you to tell me: Do you know anyone who will keep your secrets for you? Hear the audio for Steve Forbert’s cover of Jason Crosby’s “Tonight I Feel So Far Away From Home” below. If you aren’t familiar with the legendary singer-songwriter, the likes of Keith Urban, Steve Martin, and Rosanne Cash covered his songs. Forbert has been in the business for more than forty years.
Scrub & Ace Ha – Sneaker Tweaker
There’s something about spoofs and comedic rap when it is funny. Scrub and his musical partner, Ace Ha, are hilarious. Watch the video for “Sneaker Tweaker” now. The sneakerheads might get a quick out of this.
The Astronots – Begging For More
In a riveting performance at Apogee Studios (Santa Monica), the Los Angeles band performs “Begging For More.” It’s a song about giving cold shoulders to frenemies. According to a blurb about the song, the footage is featured in a new film, ‘Under the Silver Lake’, by Andrew Garfield.
Jimi Lucid – The Devil Sings in the Dark (Bonus)
Jimi Lucid, a self-proclaimed Chillwave/Trap singer from DC, released a track with an interesting title. It’s called, “The Devil Sings in the Dark.” Check out the quaint record below.
