New Tune from The Heart Strings

10616721_10153415901879596_5891930795245722178_nIt’s been a little bit since we heard from The Heart Strings, so I wanted to toss up this brand new single today to catch your ears. Songwriter Todd Roache has a producer’s touch, which is really evident in his pop constructs; you can hear the dedication to extracting each melody perfectly in every little note on this single. For listeners, it holds a bright tone, both musically and in the lyrical content, but be forewarned, Todd tells us that his music’s about to take a darker turn on his next few singles. Without further adieu, here’s your pop hit for the day.

New Camp Lo album

Bronx-natives and 20 year hip-hop veterans Camp Lo have continued their trend of putting out an album every four to five years with their newest release, Ragtime Hightimes. Camp Lo knocked their debut album Uptown Saturday Night out of the park in 1997, and while the quality of their music has remained the same, they have never achieved as much success. Anyone familiar with Camp Lo will remember them most for their hit single “Luchini/This Is It” which samples Dynasty’s “Adventurs In Music Land“. Some of their noteworthy singles since then include 2002’s “Glow” and 2008’s “Lumdi“. For Ragtime Hightimes, Camp Lo returned to working with frequent collaborator, famed hip-hop producer Ski. The video for one of Camp Lo’s singles off their newest album is below.
