really felling this. keyboard solo and special fx are awes

heard a few more of their songs and they're nice, but imo, kinda dated and too 'nice'. sounds a lot like dwele or something

sounds like stbrkt or jamie woon or those guys more than R&B.

Boykins! Loved the album he released a few years back, downloaded this EP but haven't listened to it yet... will have to get on that.

He's really great live as well, I saw him open up for Chrisette Michele.

Gives me the same feelings that early Dwele gave me.

Sounds like King Britt really wanted to make a Little Dragon/Georgia Anne Muldrow/Kissey Asplund-type record.

Last track is Italo post-punk, though -- something you could play between the Cure and Klein & MBO.

Whole thing is excellent.

Regarding Thundercat:

This opens the album and it's obviously covered later on, as linked above.

A lot of Flying Lotus fans are going to think the album is garbage, but anything that uses MPS-era George Duke, Jan Hammer Group's Melodies, and Todd Rundgren as touchstones is OK in my book.

New track by José James - It's All Over Your Body

His voice is so friggin sexy. This is a smooth little groove, pretty damn perfect imo.

Another new one... Trouble

I see she was mentioned on this thread already (only mention on ILM). Not saying I love this, but I like her voice and kindof like the whole thing. Could stand a harder sound though obviously a harder sound isn't what they're going for.

Actually, listening to "Leila's Tale" now for the first time and I think I might like that more.

Or maybe not.

Does Jose James belong in this thread or the reg R&B rolling thread?

Leila's Tale sounds better to me. Production is pretty cool.

This Pandr Eyez track is enchanting

Does Goapelle belong in here? Maybe this song belongs in the Sade thread, cos its very Sade like.

that pandr eyez track is pretty amazing

Yeah, I'm loving Pandr Eyez and Goapelle tracks both.

Second J*Davey album finally seeing the light of day later this month. http://soundcloud.com/illav8r/newdesignerdrug

Sounds great on my first run-through. AND HELL YES! "Dollar or More" is finally gonna be out there. I've been waiting for a finished version of that song for almost three years.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 15 November 2011 16:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

gotta say i had high hopes and feel kinda let down w/ new j davey. compared to the dangerous sexy randomness of the first double-set, it's bland. dang!

Goapele album is waaaaay good. For real.

Dunno the best thread to post this in, since it's maybe a little alt-y for the R&B thread yet it's not really that out there or experimental, but I'm really enjoying the new Nylo EP. The closer, in particular, seems of a piece with the most subdued moments on the new Dawn Richard album
