[new] Molly Burch – “Emotion” (110bpm G♯min)
[new] Gashi – “Lies” (118bpm Fmin) & “Paranoid” (110bpm C#min)
Gashi seems to be taking a page from The Weeknd’s playbook. Or perhaps it’s vice versa. I really like this track a lot. I’m a little more fond of the instrumental production on this record than I am the vocals. I know it may seem like a requirement to auto-tune these days, but I think this record would have been much more powerful without it.
Another enjoyable track from Gashi called “Paranoid.” Gashi… yes… we know you smoke. We’re very proud of you. The look and image he’s cultivated for himself is douchey, but I do like this track and video as well. It was shot in Indian Alley which is near Skid Row in Los Angeles.
[new] Astrid S & Brett Young – “I Do” (110bpm A♯maj)
For a second, I thought Kelly Ripa made a record. I like this track despite several things I don’t like about it. Way overboard on the auto-tune. The same three chords are repeated throughout the song, verses and chorus. How about changing things up for the Chorus, huh? And there’s no bridge. A really good bridge would have propelled this song into something quite excellent. Look for an acoustic version if you prefer that kind of thing.
