Tom Misch & Carmody – We Used To Know

But we let it go, let it go, let it go…

Embrace your somber side by listening to Tom Misch & Carmody’s lovely track, “We Used To Know”. The pair has been working on an EP that will be released later this year. Both musicians are from South East London, and actually live down the road from each other!

There’s something about Tom’s music that is soothing to my soul. It’s not just this song that caught my attention. After hearing only a few of his songs, I knew he was an artist I should pursue. And I did! I downloaded his first album named “Beat Tape 1” earlier this week and have been thoroughly enjoying it. In “We Used To Know”, his use of barely-there guitar strums and minimalistic percussion alongside his sultry voice captures me straight away. Carmody’s voice only amplifies the melancholy atmosphere conjured up by this song. The track is about breaking apart and drifting away; about the empty feeling that ensues after a breakup. The song carries soul, and the pair work well together to evince those familiar feelings of loss.

Be careful! This song isn’t forgettable. I’ve been humming it all day! Maybe it’s my current mood; it’s been dreary out, and my mood has been negatively affected by the sudden cold. We can’t be happy all the time! Life has taught me that a bout of sadness is natural and shouldn’t be ruminated upon. So let the blue songs speak to you; appreciate your varied emotions!

Flume & Chet Faker – This Song Is Not About A Girl

Alittle bit disco paired with the vocals reminiscent of a rock song from the ’90s, this song is on repeat at the moment. Just one of the songs, which was released on the highly anticipated collaborative album from two of my favorites from down under.

This song is powerful with a dance beat and an extremely sexy breakdown around the 3:00 minute mark. And then it gets even sexier, stripping out much of the instrumentals only to be added in to a slow roll :30 seconds later. I feel like I was seduced. And not going to lie, I loved it.

What this duo creates is a beautiful mix of Chet‘s vocals which are dark and hollow over the whimsical, playfulness of Flume‘s producing. This song makes me so excited for more.

This tune is among other amazing releases from these two and is currently available on the album Lockjaw. Please never stop.
