new music: Frameworks; FEMME; Your Friend

Frameworks, “Branches”

–perfect for a Sunday. smooth and inviting. house beats that burst euphorically yet subdued. EP out now. British downtempo and instrumental hip hop producer Matthew Brewer aka Frameworks released the EP Branches [Loci Records] on November 20.

FEMME, “Gold”

–upbeat and bold. fantastic song. dance-able and empowering. Femme says about writing the song: “I wrote “Gold” after spending many days watching ABBA videos and late nights dreaming of Shirley Bassey. It’s about being blinded by someone’s immaculate golden veneer to the point of not realizing you may not be in love at all.” EP out now. debut album out in the spring.

 

Your Friend, “Come Back From It”

–Taryn Miller is the talent behind Your Friend. Lovely blissful melodies and murky-cool lyrics. Her debut album GUMPTION [Domino] is out January 29. Of the video, Miller says: It was freezing, and wild. He (the motorcycle driver) was weaving between highway traffic and at times, splitting the space between semis. It all came together at the very end of my trip, and was a really lovely way to leave after seeing what so many endured. There was this juxtaposition of the time that I arrived, and the night before I left. The streets were empty on my first day there, and it was exhilarating to be riding back into the city like that, and to have witnessed such resilience during such a dark time.”
