Moses Sumney – Don’t Bother Calling

Google Play Music has done it again. I was just recommended the new album by Moses Sumney called Aromanticism and I guess me listening to Daniel Caesar’s new album has everything to do with it (I just found out, that Moses Sumney did the vocals to a Flume track called Weekend, which is an awesome track that you should check out as well).

I didn’t expect to like this spacy jazzy soul as much as I do, but it really resonates with me for a reason. It’s the perfect music to put on a sunday evening when there isn’t much to do other than chill and relax on the sofa or in your bed.

The dreamy vibes I get from this album is like putting a piece of candy in your mouth, and as soon as it touches your tongue, it just melts and leaves your mouth full of different sweet flavors.

And the song I have chosen is the perfect representation of this. Moses’ voice is a godsend and the falsetto gives of the candy-vibes, but it’s done in a mature way, so I never feel like it becomes too much. If you like Daniel Caesar or Childish Gambino’s song, Flight of the Navigator, you will definitely like this release.

Cigarettes After Sex – John Wayne

I listened to this song all day last Thursday – I listened to the album after reading a review onĀ Soundvenue, a danish website that writes about music, movies, fashion and other current trends. And I can only agree with the review – It’s a really good album!

I was just laying in my bed listening to the album a couple of times – and suddenly, while this song was playing, something just clicked! The whole song just made sense in a different way and I actually ended up putting it on repeat for way too long.

It felt like the song captured me in a dreamy wave that carried me along in a slow and steady motion – not too slow, not too fast – a perfect middleground that’s usually really hard to capture in a song. The vocals fit the dreamy vibe perfectly and you get attached to the vibe in a weird way that makes you relate to the story in the song.

I was definitely surprised by the whole album and this song in particular. The band name (and album name) perfectly captures the whole vibe of the album so I would recommend to listen to this if you just want to relax in your bed with your eyes closed.

Fishmans – LONG SEASON

Today, I have been listening to a band from Japan Called Fismans. They made an album called Long Season back in 1996. The best way I can describe the music is dreamy alternative with a lot of different elements from different genres.

The songs are mostly instrumental with some Japanese singing – but it all adds to the feeling of being in a dream especially when I don’t understand what is being said. The production on this is out of this world – the whole album is like one long song split up into different parts and the cohesiveness is just a joy to listen to.

I wasn’t able to find the album on any streaming services other than Youtube, but you have to give it a listen anyway – You really won’t be sorry. The only thing I am sorry about is that I haven’t heard about the band before. Unfortunately, the lead singer died back in 1999, so any new music won’t be likely.
