Song of the Day: Silver Lining – The Mystery Plan (ft. Big Supreme)

When dreampop blends with hip hop, how does it sound? North Carolina’s indie pop outfit THE MYSTERY PLAN and rapper BIG SUPREME show us just how beautiful and deep it can be. ‘Silver Lining’ is the lead track from their latest album ‘You Also Have Eyes’, co-produced by the legendary John Fryer. The new chill video sees these two artists joins forces amidst high cocktail hour.

Big Supreme says “I was truly in a period of stagnation musically… When I heard the music The Mystery Plan had put together, I just let it play and let the spirit speak through me. What came out of it was a message of hope for 2021 and beyond… at the end of every struggle in life, there’s a silver lining.”

Song of the Day: Who’s Counting – Andria Piperni

Singer/songwriter ANDRIA PIPERNI creates a jazz-tinged alternative fusion of R&B and soul, inspired in part by the everyday experience as well as her vividly surreal dream episodes. Her 2018 debut single ‘Say Something’ made its way onto Canada’s R&B/Soul iTunes chart, with follow-up singles ranking on iTunes and Spotify charts around the world.

With the past year bringing a whole new outlook on life as we know it, Andria delivers her own reflective collection of waking moments on her soulful debut ‘Who’s Counting?’ EP. There’s a mix of both feel-good vibes and more somber emotions throughout these songs, but they all circle around this theme of taking a step back in order to see and understand things more clearly or in a new light.

Satirical with a serious subject, title track “Who’s Counting?” is a hauntingly ironic song created to take listeners on a thought-provoking journey. Have a listen below…

Hip-hop duo, CITY GIRLS‘ track ‘Twerkulator’ is one club-ready banger that showcases their unmatched confidence and a wily sense of humor over a punchy sample of the 80’s classic ‘Planet Rock’ by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force.

Song of the Day: Give Thx – Joss Bari

As this is the day for reflection and gratitude, I thought I would share with you JOSS BARI‘s second single, ‘Give Thx’.

Sporting a laid-back (almost) afterhours vibe with sporadic electrifyingly tones, which gives the whole production some added spice, ‘Give Thx’ could be described as kind of a gospel song, where the French soul crooner express his gratitude for music being his saving grace.

Check out the music video for ‘Give Thx’ below. The track will form part of his upcoming debut album, ‘French Lova’, a melodic collection of hip-hop and contemporary R&B.
