Genesis Owusu – WUTD (Submission)

Looking to wind down tonight, the funky track ‘WUTD’ by Genesis Owusu will do it. The Australian artist wants to know what you’re trying to do. Based on what he says, he made it for the sake of dancing. There’s nothing like a good night’s sway before bed.


Jeremy Zucker – comethru featuring Bea Miller (Remix) (Submission)

Hailing from the state of New Jersey, Jeremy Zucker croons his way into our hearts one note at a time. Here with an official remix for the successful calming Electro-Pop record ‘comethru’, he sings about not being okay; and that’s fine. Wanting to know if someone will be there for you when you need them is a recurring human thought. I hope we are all able to find that person who emits consistency.

If you’re looking for new voices or artists to support, you might have found some. The original record is from his EP titled, ‘summer’. It has accumulated over sixty-six million plays on Spotify. Plus, its video has over twenty-four million views; featured on YouTube’s Artist on the Rise.

Jeremy says,

I wanted to do something exciting for my fans and give it a new spin. I’ve been a fan of Bea for a long time and thought she’d be the perfect addition the song. We got together a couple of weeks ago to make this remix. I’m psyched about the way it came out.


Robert Connely Farr & the Rebeltone Boys – Hey Mr Devil (Submission)

Most of the time, we hear people take their grieves to their Lord and Saviour to fight for the inevitable demise of their loved ones. Not on ‘Hey Mr Devil’. Things are a bit different here. Robert Connely Farr takes his requests to the Lord of the Underworld, himself—asking for his friendship. He’s fearful that the woman he loves is never coming back. Unfortunately, Mr Devil is the first diety he calls for help, perhaps, because she’s in his grips.

Secondly, he visits the church to ask God for his friendship, so, he can tell her that he’s changed his ways. To me, he’s desperate, sorry, and willing to do anything for her to come back into his life. Hear the Bolton, Mississippi-native vocalist bare his soul on record. The heartfelt track is from his 2018 album ‘Dirty Soul Blues’, made with Canadian producer Leeroy Stagger.


Help – Pennies on the Ground (Submission)

“If we want to climb out of the dark ages of greed”, we are going to need Help. At least it’s what I read when researching the band. They exist as “the frenzied sound of a broken and collapsing society.”

There’s more, but I’ll let you discover it on your own. It is the first of six single set to come out over the next six months. Check out the roaring sounds of the Portland, Oregon-based band now. They’re incredible. The words of the song detail every day lives, unfortunately. Most people come from home from work. Turn on the television to watch the news, scaring themselves as they see outrageous headlines. That’s what this Punk song will do to some, shock them if they aren’t numb yet.


Desert Liminal – Pipedream (Submission)

Bringing my list back to the softer sounds of night time at most households, Desert Liminal encapsulates what they call “Drone Pop”. It’s a groovy number. In most parts, the sung words aren’t crystal clear to my ears, but is it supposed to be? Maybe that’s what Drone Pop is all about; it is music heard from the aural perspective of a drone. Who knows? Just listen to the genre-evasive minimalistic ‘Pipedream’ below. The musical duo has a show at the Emporium on March 28 in Chicago, Illinois.


Michael Casper – Black Lipstick (Submission)

Excuse me, but I am into just about anything that’s as dark as this Michael Casper visual and song. I am a black lipstick and black nail polish monger, who isn’t afraid to talk about death, dying, or loss. I think we don’t talk about it enough in the communities I’ve thrived. I believe it would help us to deal with the inevitable, sooner. Without further ado, watch the gloomy visual for the nineteen-year-old Los Angeles, California artist’s latest track.


Trizz – Thanos (Submission)

California-native rapper Trizz has yet to do wrong in my eyes, creatively and musically. Every time he delivers a message over an instrumental, it is a high-quality performance. Watch his dark video for ‘Thanos’ below. The track is part of the follow-up to his 2018 release: The Attic.
