Adrian Underhill – “Cruel” // Timo Kuilder

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.

Shawn William Clarke – “Young In Love (At The End Of The World)” // Antony Gormley

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?

And I hate that my whole family’s gotta ask me how you’ve been

Bobby Uzóma – “Alone” // David Oliveira

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.

Tune into more of Bobby Uzóma’s frequencies by revisiting the gorgeous “Holy Grails” from VINYL MOON Volume 010: Dry.
