ETHICS: SITTING IN MY LONELY ROOM

Ethics

The Ethics: I Want My Baby Back (Vent, 1969, 7″)

One of my favorite Philly joints; could have sworn I shared this before but must have slipped my radar. I like how the content says “ballad” but everything else about it, musically, says Northern scorcher.

KALI UCHIS: SHE’S STILL HERE

Late pass. I completely slept on Kali Uchis until the other week when DJ Phatrick dropped this tune onto an episode of Heartbreak Radio. First of all, how am I not going to be into a track that loops up the Notations. Second, Uchis does that dream pop thing that needs to be kept in moderation but when it works, it works well, especially over something as ethereal as this track. Now all I need is for her to drop this on a 7″.

PAPOOSE + PREMIER: LIGHTING FIRES

Truth be told, this is one of the best Primo beats I’ve heard in a minute. Not like no one’s ever messed with those Shirley Bassey horns before but I’m surprised more folks haven’t tried to squeeze juice out of it. Monster.

NICOLE WILLIS: THEY’RE PLAYING OUR TUNE

Nicole Willis and the Soul Investigators: Where Are You Now? (Timmion, 2015, 7″)

I say this every couple of years but Nicole Willis is a treasure. Can’t wait for her next album, coming out in October.
