Welcome to FUZZY MEADOWS, where we recap the past week in music. We're sharing our favorite releases of the week in the form of albums, singles, and music videos along with the "further listening" section of new and notable releases from around the web.
Our Year-End coverage "fun" isn't over just yet. You've read our spectacular "Year In Review" feature (available to bookmark for your convenience) and checked out the "Staff Picks" count-down, but now it's time to hear from some friends of the site in a feature we're calling "Guest List," a chance for bands, labels, and music industry types to share what kept them going over the past year.
Seth Applebaum created the Ghost Funk Orchestra moniker to allow himself a clear avenue into the world of latin music. "Fluorescent" opens along a salsa breakbeat with simmering guitar arrangements floating alongside and Razor Honey's near conversational hip-hop, utilizing clever wordplay but more interestingly experimenting with the tension between syllables.
