This Weekend’s Tunes
“Puttin It Off” by Matt Moody
About the song: “t began as a midi track on logic. I sat down at my computer one afternoon and decided to write something on the keyboard instead of guitar for once, and the words just started pouring out of me, as if some entity was feeding it to me. Based somewhat in reality but culminating into a concoction of my dreams, desires, regrets, failures, and fantasies; Puttin’ It Off is the simple epiphany of a battle between the ego and the higher self. We’ve got a life to live; why aren’t we living it, and will we ever make it to kingdom come?” — Matt Moody
“Winter” by Eyreton Hall
About the song: “‘Winter’ was created during a moment of deep introversion in the midst of, what Randle describes as, “being overwhelmed by a complicated and rushed existence”. The resulting fragility and intense self-reflection is perfectly captured by the song – with the creative process providing Toni a cathartic escape during this difficult period.” — Eyreton Hall
“Spill Over” by Loupe
“UP UP AND AWAY” by ILL PEACH
About the artist: Dropping in with an early listen to ILL PEACH, an LA-based duo comprised of artists who boast credits with Pharrell, SZA , Saint JHN and Icona Pop and more.
“Die Tonight” by Sam Louis
About the song: ““Die Tonight” is Louis’ take on the notorious cultural association between sex and death. The song’s story was written in the vein of a movie script, featuring two characters who end up together in a time that feels like the world is falling apart around them.” — Sam Louis
