August compilation 2019 this [2019-09-07]

I like Lana Del Rey's new album. I guess it is about americana, a promised land, life & dreams and the recent troubles, but the references are too complicated to me. The best songs are like cinematic pieces, of something important that I don't quite get.
The highlight for me is DRAM - big vocals and a slow groove. Drums by Red Hot Chili Pepper's Chad Smith btw.
There are a couple of nice acoustic videos with Mae Muller, worth checking out.
Seems like BNH is alive again, new album, lots of guest vocals (Siedah is perhaps my all-time favourite singer in BNH).
New sounds from London Elektricity is always something to look forward to. Quality D&B.

July compilation 2019 this [2019-07-10]

Cheating just a bit and collecting some songs from spring/summer, so not so much a July compilation. Beautiful people by Ed Sheeran/Khalid is so much better in this musical-style cover. Same for the Old Town Road mashup, even if the original video is hard to beat. I don't know dancing, but even I can see that Jade Chynoweth is not an average dancer (Shawn Mendes clip). I always think I like the whispering voice, like Amaarae's. Then I hear Amber Marks clean voice. Good to hear a quality release from Vicktor Taiwo - his Digital kids is one all-time favourite video, get's me every time. I don't quite get the vocoder sound, sounds like Kanye and he does not need that. Still can't get enough of Iman Omari's soft sound. Very emotional and beautiful voice on the Mark Ronson/Miley Cyrus cover by Moss Kena. Going straight to my best-of-2019, for sure. Talulah Ruby sounds very different from the mainstream, like the spanish influence.
