16th November

Daughter – Home

It feels like it has been a while since I posted something fresh, that’s hot off the press. I heard this for the first time today on 6music, there is something compelling about the vocal that grabbed me.

D’Angelo – Untitled (how does if feel)

I am aware this is somewhat cheesy (please forgive the rather naff album cover, the music video is even worse). Somehow I really like it though, it is smooth and mellow and the vocal, while at times bordering on the self-indulgent, is pretty great. It hit the spot and soothed me today when I needed something to help me return to an even keel.

I came across D’Angelo while trying to work out if there was any music that had been made since Disco was invented that was worthy of the name soul. I found that, in general, the answer was a resounding no (where did it all go wrong?) but I just about made an exception for this.

I would love to hear other suggestions of some fresh, modern soul? I am always happy to be proved wrong when good music is involved.
