3 Songs: On Repeat

Brittany Howard – “History Repeats” (The Alabama Shakes frontwoman delivers the goods on her self-produced debut solo album, Jaime, out today on ATO Records.  Howard is revered for her powerful blues and soul-soaked voice and guitar playing and she combines that with deeply personal songwriting and eclectic experiments in futuristic funk, synths and spoken word diatribes on her stunning solo debut.  Listen to the standout single here with its booming beat and funky clavinet.)           

Sleep On It – “Under The Moment” (The Chicago-based emo-tinged pop-punk quartet recently released their sophomore album, Pride & Disaster via Equal Vision Records.  The songs on the highly-anticipated new album are musically striking with inventive rhythms and boasted by anthemic melodies; lyrically, they provide hope in the hard times.  The perfect example is the album’s lead single, heard here; a cathartic cry for help set to a stuttering beat and an infectious sing-along chorus.)    

Wesdaruler – “Loseit4tonite” (Longtime Athens, GA producer and beatmaker, Wesley Johnson also known as WesdaRuler, recently released Ocean Drive, his long-awaited debut album.  Out now on HHBTM Records, Johnson’s chilled out eccentric beats are entwined with trippy melancholic synths and heady personal lyrics with a soft, spoken word-like delivery; resulting in something akin to De La Soul and Marvin Gaye but uniquely his own creation.  Check out the jazz piano led standout track here with its skittering beat and catchy hooks. )
