Movement are back with a newly released demo track, Lace (spoiler alert – it will be coming up in this week’s list). I’d given Movement’s Soundcloud page a perusal before, and for whatever reason nothing really stuck with me. Lace gave me a cause to return to their page and this time fall in love with their entire library. One of the previously missed tracks was 5.57.
This here is basically the perfect example of how to make a radio-friendly hip hop… and I’m totally cool with it. Plus it has Kendrick Lamar. Anything with Kendrick Lamar in it is an auto-listen in my books.
Loving the changing pace of Green Eyes from Elias, as well as the dominating vocals. Seeing as this is only one of two songs (that I can find), I’m looking forward to future releases from Elias. Hoping for more of this brooding, orchestral sounding R&B.
Sensual sadness here with the second entry from Movement on this week’s list. I’m a big fan of minimalistic sound… and it’s a rare treat when a band can go minimalistic but still convey some pretty deep emotions. Think R I T U A L here.
What better way to finish off a somewhat despair-filled list of “woe is me” songs than to do a 180 into some hazy indie pop. Have only had a few listens of this track from Weekender, but I’m already sold on the killer transition from verse to chorus.
