🧑🏫 three songs for the new kids
Before we get into it, I’d like to welcome to all the new kids who signed up this past week. If you’re here from the Substack feature, I’m so glad it resonated with you. Some helpful things to know:
I usually send songs out on Fridays or the weekend
I update the 3 by 7 playlist every few months, but songs will always be here first, and the playlist won’t include Soundcloud or Bandcamp exclusives
I’m bad at social media and would love your help getting the word out
“MyLuv” by Spencer.
Released August 2021—Spotify
Spencer. delivers this fresh cut while floating Spike Lee style across the Williamsburg bridge. The horns layered over the psyched out guitar chords feel like a morning stretch.
“Like My Way” by Logic1000
Released January 2021—Spotify
I love how this song knocks right out of the gate 0:00 seconds in, but still manages to incorporate a moody build up. The dizzying vocal samples and bass line that come in halfway through are masterful.
“workworkwork” by pearlchild
Released March 2021—Bandcamp
Rihanna might be too rich to release music ever again, but at least we can enjoy this bounce-y rework of one of the biggest hits of her career. Perfect for a sunny afternoon walk and/or recreational marijuana consumption.
