Well, today might be the beginning of a little decline for the next few weeks, as you’re likely going to be pressing play on this just as I’m bringing Nathan Jr. Jr. into the world. But, like him, you are blessed with these incredible tunes that graced our site last week, all of which will enable you to recover from your Labor Day doldrums. Hopefully this week brings you a great many things!
Now that we’ve looked at last week’s tunes, I wanted to start off with this real slowly unfolding pop ballad from Dutch outfit, Feng Suave. The opening minute is almost like a lounge singer, crooning to his audience, slow and charming. But, just after the 1 minute mark, you get this nuanced build, texturing the song with these nice little string arrangements and tickling piano notes. Just don’t think they’re settling there, as the group continues to let the song build and swell, all the while holding tight to the track’s early charms. If you dig it, be sure to give a listen to their So Much for Gardening EP.
