@@@ Kingdom: Nothin’ (Fade to Mind, 2016). I’m on the late night electronic tracks for the party comedown on Apple Music. I thought that this vibe works for turkey stuffed humans — I didn’t go the dead bird route but I live amongst them. This is a slow jam centered around depression and gettin it on. Female singers, some more thwacky beats than what you would usually get in a slow bummer/burner like this. This is supposed to be a UK garage influenced jam but I guess I don’t know what garage music is, well the beats are a tad garage but it’s basically a r&b booty jam.
@@@ Nikitch: When it all falls down ( ,2016). This is more appropriate for tryptophan sufferers. It’s got a simple arpeggiated beat, a bit trance-y with a slip tongued singer. She doesn’t sound like she ate a ton of food but she seems sympathetic to those who might have hit the bird hard. Oh yeah, kick back and chill on this jam it will help you intestinally, it’s quite soothing. I don’t usually love the full synth tracks but they did a good job with this track.
@@@ Thalab: 2 Sails (Juicebox, 2016) This tune features some fine and simple metallic percussion which might be reminisicent of the knives and forks at your holiday meal. The synths are simple and well done. I don’t have beef with the singer but I’m not super feeling him. He’s actually telling some sort of story and I have no focus for that, I much prefer consuming the sounds and leaving the rest behind. It’s got a little guitar at the back end of the tune which is a bit plump at 6 minutes long but it’s chill and right now we need chill. It’s blond surfer mellow yellow yo.
