Last Week’s Jams, Today (September 20 – 24)

Here we are kicking off another great week in life, am I right? We wanted to start your Monday with a glance over our shoulders at last week’s hits. I think we covered some pretty great stuff last week, some of which you might have only been able to find through us, some of it you just need to be sure you check out. Love the new Ovlov track, and can’t stop playing this Smallgoods album; you’d also do well to visit that Japan Review tune too! Tons of different vibes, which is always our vibe. Have a good week loves.

Orton Ready Debut EP

Having worked in production for years, Will Crumpton is ready to work out his own tunes on his debut EP as Orton. His lead single from the track seems to detail his journey, with the title “Your Way” referencing how he came to find strength in his own musical decision making. I love the heavy vibe coursing throughout, sort of this deep wash of darkened tones, pushing forth with this cavernous sound that gets occasional accents from distorted atmospherics. Crumpton lets the feathery notes of his voice float in and out, careful to keep the song’s production equal, so the emotive quality is maximized for listeners. Sparring EP will be out on October 29th via Phlexx Records.
