I can't get enough of these albums. I've embedded a Spotify playlist below, but support these artists - buy their records, their merch, and go see them live. The Spotify royalties cannot pay the bills...
MELLOW DRAMA + REFUSE + PRECIOUS by Kevin Garrett
I discovered this dude a couple weeks ago and I can't stop listening. Soulful, wicked voice, dope production.
PURE IN THE PLASTIC by Polyenso
Had the chance years ago to play with these guys when they were called Oceana. Their progression as a band and as artists has been a blast to watch - such a cool record.
SURFACE by Su Na
Alec Ness, who goes by Su Na, is an old friend. We used to play music together. This guy has taken off and was recently featured on BBC Radio. Check out his newest album - you're gonna love it.
VITALS by Mutemath
This is one of my favorite bands. This album is a bit more poppy and I'm happy about it.
