I don’t care about the Grammys. But they are what they are. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that one of the underrated gems I’ve picked here was nominated for a Grammy. I held out on posting for a while, and this is one of the few great songs I’ve discovered and wanted to share from Spotify’s weekly New Music Friday playlist. Even without a video for it. Just a little proof that you can be sure to only find songs a cut above the rest here! Congratulations to this talented artist.
What a super smooth eclectic electronic R&B vibe. Superb musicianship by this newly-discovered artist, Phoenix Troy. I really enjoyed this song. Another hidden gem courtesy of Kitsuné Musique, one of the very best indie labels in the world.
As I slodged through all the generic music released this on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, this actually saved me from falling asleep. It’s different. Jazzy-pop. Well done.
Very eclectic vibe.
Shocker: A new song that doesn’t sound generic and is actually pretty good. This is an artist to watch.
Definitely one of the more ear-catching tracks I’ve heard this year when it comes to originality. Lo-fi/alt-pop with some funk to it. Reminds me of a modern-day Beck.
Highly underrated artist, one of the industry’s best songwriters. This single was produced by James Blake.
Ha. This trippy-ass video came out a week after I featured it here. Dope indie Brooklyn talent.
Absolutely one of the catchiest original songs of 2020.
Super-chill, soulful mellow vibe.
One of the dopest indie tracks I’ve heard in a while.
Someone commented this remind’s them of Beyonce “Sweet Dreams.” It’s different. But similar. Both are good songs.
She’s kind of in that dark/emo pop Billie Eilish lane.
