Higher – Tash Sultana

THIS CHICK IS SERIOUSLY BADASS! Easily one of the most talented and unique music magicians I have come across this year, and also a turbo babe. Rooted in the busking lifestyle and hailing from Melbourne, I believe Tash gained mass popularity through live recordings done in her home and then put on YouTube for ze world to see. The songs “Jungle” and “Notion” were picked up by the Triple J radio station for good reason (GO LISTEN TO THEM RIGHT NOW PLEASE) and the rest is history. Her voice is almost haunting in the best kind of way and her creativity with looping and various effects pedals is unlike any other. This song in particular slapped me in the face. It’s raw. It’s real. It’s amazing. Happy listening you beautiful humans!

Your Mother Was Cheaper/Twisted – Two Feet

Happy Holiday Monday Babes.

This is not the first Two Feet post i’ve written, and it certainly will not be the last. The first two songs from the Momentum EP were posted here and titled Love Is A Bitch/Have Some Drinks. Two feet dropped two new tracks this month to completed the EP’s release and those are Your Mother Was Cheaper/Twisted. Twisted is dark and enchanting; Your Mother Was Cheaper has more of a reflective tone, with a touch of wistful longing. There are many reasons why I have a steady love for this artist, but namely his musical prowess, diversity, swanky guitar, and sultry lyrics. Knowing he is from New York and connecting the lyrical story written through these tracks, a picture is painted of a powerful dance between two humans spanning the moonlit alleys, central park, the city skyline and the infinite starry dark sky.

The captivating story Two Feet tells through his music is always one of intriguing complexity. I can confidently say the momentum EP and the First Steps EP were crucial pieces of the soundtrack to my last 12 months – as I am closing the Island Chapter of my life and setting sail for the next upcoming Mountain Chapter. The release this new EP seems fitting, as it will likely help carry me through to whatever comes next, graciously making it easier to leave the ocean with a touch a momentum.

Lost In Your Light – MJ Cole ft. Dua Lipa

This glorious song should be enjoyed on repeat. I don’t know how you could listen to it and be unhappy. MJ cole is a long time personal favorite – which is how I stumbled a crossed this beauty of a track. Dua Lipa is an english artist & model who got into the limelight early and even has a documentary film created about her called See In Blue. More than anything this song makes me want to dance on water and be a fucking ray of sunshine.

You do what you want with it – but I’ll keep spreading love & light the whole day through.
