After months of teasing and pushbacks Wynter Gordon finally released the 2nd in a series of 4(?) EPs Sanguine, while the 1st EP focused on more pain and fear this one focuses on the relief from pain, with hopeful tracks like “Tomorrow” and “Lucky Ones”, while the new additions “Reach Out” and “Levitate” continue to drive the point through. All four tracks carry the same peaceful melodic vibe but it’s the sassy, neck snapping “TKO” that stands out the most. I’m genuinely looking forward to the follow up to this series.
This year I discovered many talented acts that dropped plenty of dope music this year and I did nothing but enjoyed the sounds of many upcoming acts that I’m sure will have you in love with them in no time. Continue reading

As a friend of mine would say, ‘Ms. Wynter is serving cunt chileee‘ and by cunt he means ‘fierceness‘. This is my absolute favorite uptempo record by her and I’m glad to see it being the flagship of the follow up to the beautifully collected ‘Human Condition pt.1‘ for the pt.2 release aptly titled ‘Sanguine‘. It’s good to see artist striving on their own with these self releases (not to mention having be for free teehee). This song unlike the previous on the last EP doesn’t stray to far away from the sound we came to know and love by the singer (see: Toyfriend and Renegade).
My future wifey Wynter Gordon dropped two tracks last week from her forthcoming 2nd free EP in a series of 4(?) called Human Condition. Pt.1 Doleo was released this summer with an emotional feel to it, however with pt. II titled Sanguine which means optimistic features the sassy bass hitter TKO and Tomorrow which has an Old School vibe to it hold true to the meaning of the EP. You can download the tracks via her Souncloud and peep a listen below.
Singer, Wynter Gordon took a detour from her usual Dance-Pop gems with the recent release of her EP Doleo the 1st in a series of 4 called The Human Condition this past summer. The lead track Stimela has been in steady rotation with me, this Phil Collins inspired instrumental and the Zulu hook interpolating Hugh Masekela song of the same name, takes a different approach lyrically with more deeper and more meaningful lyrics where is some of her previous works were shallow yet catchy, Stimela sounds like a tribal war song set in 1930s Africa the power and dynamic of her voice showcased in the song easily marks this as one of her best vocal performances.

I’ve decided to do another edition to “Bands I’m Fucking With” . I felt it was only proper to do one of other bands that I discovered before this year and some I discovered recently. I have a vast collection of music that I jam to on the regular of various genres and styles. Most of these acts are very underground and have little mainstream attention, and if they do have mainstream attention they’re most like big in another country. The main point of me posting these artist is that they in some way have influenced me musically, visually or just made really good shit for me to jam to. I recommend you taking a listen to all the acts they are extremely talented, and if you like them please support them. Continue reading
