Since listening to this song, I’ve lost five different pencil in air drumming-related incidents. One of them landed in my coworker’s hair, but I don’t think she’s noticed yet. Maybe I can knock it loose with another pencil? Better queue up the song again.
You ever get so lost in a moment with a song that you realize you’re staring at nothing and idly fidgeting with a pencil like a caricature of a person lost in a moment? You feel like an archetype in a sitcom and start to wonder if those characters ever meditated on their universality made them more meaningful or cheapened their existence?

And I hate that my whole family’s gotta ask me how you’ve been
You know me better than I wish you did
JP lays his already raw heart on the table in “Changed” and I can’t think of a better way for him to heal. This song has so many people healing right along with him. A couple more spins and we might be all better.
A soft ode to life on the road, Shawn William Clarke paints a lovely picture of things constantly moving around you even though you feel motionless. Close your eyes and let the music do the moving for once.
“Autumn in New Brunswick” is from Shawn’s upcoming second LP Topaz.

With the disclaimer that I am always going to be onboard with weird sound effect loops and hi-hat rhythms behind talented R&B vocalists, Bobby Uzóma’s latest offering really does it for me. Tasteful, minimal, and heartfelt, “Alone” feels like a heart-wrenching transmission from the other side of the world – something you might hear while half-asleep, unsure whether you’re receiving some invisible emotional broadcast or dreaming up the whole thing.
Tep No continues his domination of the sad/sexy jam genre with a fantastic new one that is perfect for winter wooing. Make sure you are up to speed on all his jams, especially “The Last Ones Standing” which was featured on the highly sought afterÂ VINYL MOON Volume 002.
