Dave B. – “Pearl” (EP)

Soulful, happy, funky Alt-Hop. That’s the best we can do to really categorize and capture the essence of “Pearl” in words. You need to hear it to get it. And once you hear a bit (sample stream below), you might wanna get it (linked below).

Kehlani – “Already Won”

So, the cutie Kehlani “Already Won” that part (that part)! But the singing though. So smooth, so “warm.” Check out her latest here.

Gaming/Relationships: Man Marries The Anime Character Of His Dreams (Video)

Hmm… file this under, “Naaaah, not crazy at all. Do you, um, player!”

Japanese adult game developer Hibiki Works recently performed a VR assisted wedding between a man and the anime character of his dreams. The wedding – which actually took place in a chapel in Tokyo – was part of Hibiki Works’ promotion of their upcoming game “Niizuma: Lovely x Cation.”
– Vocativ

So, question: With the virtual wife concept… Would that be ‘death do them part’ after losing one life on the video game; or is this an ‘all lives matter’ situation (like, you have to stay with the new virtual spouse through all your game lives).

Sunni Colón – “Little Things” (Prod. By Kaytranada)

Dope! That boom bap slap start, with that slight dirtied-up crackle in the track… might have you ready to click off… but then you hear the jazzy vocals come in incredibly to tie the whole thing down! Nah, you aren’t going anywhere. Turns out all the elements contribute to the enjoyment of this. All those things, all those “Little Things”… matter.

Funk/Soul: Thundercat – “Show You The Way” feat. Michael McDonald x Kenny Loggins (Video)

Okay… Thundercat is OUT THERE! See, “Them Changes” was already… er, eccentric. Well, this is a sequel to that; and it is CRAY in the best way. Like features (and actual appearances) from Doobie Bro Michael McDonald and Kenny “Footloose” Loggins. REALLY the best way. Awesomeness from the ’80s travels to the future to continue our tale of the armless Samurai.

(Yeah. Just watch!)

SUPERCAT – DRUNK (ALBUM OUT NOW)

This Iman Omari vibe is one you have to jump into and feel your way around to get. You are not going to ‘nod to it and catch a flow’… song just ain’t built that way. Truly an alternative jazzy approach for his “Kama Sutra” jawn. Click play and get to getting into it. Pre-order link for the album below.

Ari Lennox – “Night Drive” (Video)

What in “The Grudge” is going on in this “Night Drive” visual? Definitely an eerie Tim Burtony vibe to this vid. But focus maaaan! Ari Lennox is rolling with Dreamville, as in J. Cole’s crew. Nobody but the dopest can fly that flag. Plus, speaking of fly… doesn’t Ari cut quite the sexy silhouette as she is moving and cooing so silky smoothly?

Torii Wolf – “Big Big Trouble” (Prod. By DJ Premier)

Sheeezzz! The scratches and that beat come in so hard. Dope out the gate, like a DJ Premier beat is apt to be, but then Torii Wolf coumes in with that haunting airy voice… nothing like the combination. Nothing can beat it. DJ Premier and Torii Wolf in “Big Big Trouble.” Torii’s “Flow Riot” is now available for pre-order at iTunes.

Alternative: ALA.NI – “You & I” (Album)

Shout to the homie Jess! She hit us with the ALA.NI blessing. Vibe listening for your Sunday enjoyment. Thinking of filing this under Alternative Jazz, but there is something about this artist’s haunting melodies that defies categorization. Hearing a couple of songs on the “You & I” album that would have been right at home on the “Kill Bill” soundtrack though. Case in point: Listen to this “Cherry Blossom” and get a couple of Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2 scenes in your head… fits, right?
