Seems Jacknife Lee doesn’t believe in Soundcloud. Nevertheless, I do think it’s Bibi’s vocals that steal the show. While the song has started to wear on me a bit, it’s all I played for a good week and I can’t help but admire how catchy Bibi’s verses are.
#1. The Paper Kites Feat. Julia Stone – Without Your Love
Love the Paper Kites, and boy it’s been a while since I heard Julia Stone’s vocals but I was very into Angus & Julia Stone back in highschool. There’s something subtle about the way that The Paper Kites write music that I’m quite drawn to. It might be the slow growth of sounds as the track goes… or maybe the calming sense you get listening. Whatever it is, it’s a nice time.
Ugh WordPress doing things again and now it’s beyond me how to get a Soundcloud link embed in here (I think it’s actually not that hard but I’m stubborn and hate change so I prefer to just rant instead)… so Spotify it is! Smooth stuff from Jay Lewn.
Came across this track a few weeks ago but it wasn’t until it came up randomly on my shuffle did I kinda stop and think “whoa, what song is this?”. Definitely a different appreciation level on the second time around.
Track makes the cut purely because it has segments which I find myself humming well after a listen, even if I admittedly am not crazy into the track. But when it’s got that kind of stickiness, they be doing something right.
It really feels a lot longer than 15 days, but that’s apparently when I first came across both the remix and the original of Benz | I know. I’m down the original… it’s legit. But Gashi’s verse on the remix version is so sick.
