Once we get past Miley Cyrus‘ “Nigthmare” and The Weeknd‘s Michael Jackson-indebted “Can’t Feel My Face,” it’s a mellow bunch of summer songs on this week’s Must-Hear Music podcast.
We listen to Leon Bridges’ appropriately titled “Smooth Sailin'” and talk about the old school-leaning singer-songwriter’s crossover potential (could he be the next Grammy darling?).
After listening to GoldLink‘s “Dance On Me,” we agree the track is great in spite of a few lyrical gaffes (a discussion of the icky phrase “tig ole bitties” ensues) and we follow up by discussing Sharon van Etten‘s moody rock track “Just Like Blood.” Plus: Podcast favorite Kehlani‘s Mr. Carmack track “All In.”
Download the Must-Hear Music podcast on iTunes (or listen below). This week the crew is Joe Lynch, Erika Ramirez and Natalie Wiener. And beneath the SoundCloud, check out the songs we’re talking about.
