3 Songs: On Repeat

The Appleseed Cast – “Collision” (Chris Crisci recently returned after a six year hiatus with a new Appleseed Cast album titled, The Fleeting Light of Impermanence.  Released on Graveface Records, the stunning new album is built upon a post-rock foundation with the signature emo sound in place but Crisci is always experimenting, with new surprises like the bright and bubbly synths and electronics that drive the standout track, “Collision”, heard here.)        

Black Pumas – “Black Moon Rising” (The retro-minded Austin-based duo of vocalist Eric Burton and producer Adrian Quesada create a déjà vu-inducing brand of funk and soul on their highly-anticipated self-titled debut album, out now via ATO Records.  The duo blends 60’s/70’s soul with hip-hop influence and elements of psychedelia.  Check out the stirring, horror movie inspired video for the opening track here; originally released as a single on Ohio funk label Colemine Records.)    

Jade Jackson – “Bottle It Up” (California singer-songwriter Jade Jackson recently reemerged with her sophomore album, Wilderness, out now on Anti.  Produced again by Social Distortion’s Mike Ness, Jackson’s classic country and western sound is greased up with some punk rock grit, matching the intensity of her confident voice and songwriting.  Lyrically, Jackson is more personally revealing this time around, remaining hopeful and inspiring in spite of life’s struggles.)
