Each week the content writers for KCPR.org are going to publish a playlist containing a new song recommendation from each of them.
Me Without You – Ashe
Recommended by: Eden Baker
In my opinion, this song’s honesty about how a person can survive and thrive without a romantic partner they once believed they needed is empowering and refreshing. Ashe’s gentle vocals portray that you can be kind and still stand up for yourself.
T r a n s p a r e n t s o u l – Willow ft.Travis Barker
Recommended by: Alina Jafri
This song is unique compared to Willow’s usual releases. While her music style usually stays towards the slow, r&b beat, in this song we get to see her rocker side come out and experience the unexpected duo with Travis Barker.
California – Babe Rainbow
Recommended by: Evan Gattuso
Crafted in the free spirit enclave of Topanga Canyon, CA, “Changing Colours” expands Babe Rainbow’s authentic psychedelic sound. The uplifting song “California” will complement any sunny beach day with its euphoric carefree vibes.
Algorithmblues – Matty
Recommended by: Moises De La Cruz
BADBADNOTGOOD’s Matty delivers an eclectic, breezy tune with “Algorithmblues.” Driven mainly by a simple drum pad loop and guitars, the track gradually climbs to a blissful peak that’s sure to make an impact in any ‘weekend adventures’ playlist.
All of Me – Live From the Coast – Maximo Park
Recommended by: Tessa Hughes
“All of Me” has literally been on loop for me for the past few weeks and this new live version is just as fun as the original. It is a little hollower, but it includes female vocals that take it to another level. Overall the song itself makes the listener feel hopeful and it is just waiting to be used in an indie film.
