It’s a new year, and one of our New Year Intentions is to keep bringing you our favorite Jams of the Month. We were curious to see how this year would do musically compared to the phenomenal releases of 2016, but with the first month of 2017 setting the tone, we don’t have much to worry about.
Our playlist this month opens with Thundercat‘s “Show You The Way” featuring Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. The certified groove of his bass guitar lovingly flirts with Thundercat’s signature harmonies while Tay Walker‘s “Runaway” carries our escapist desires right to the beach side paradise we’re longing for. The “Patience (Freestyle)” by RAY BLK finds encouraging bars surfing a sea of angelic melodies while sunny guitar strings gleaming through the warm winds of punchy rhythms in “Murder” with Jarreau & Emmavie keep the beachy vibes going. Also included are Matt Martians‘ “Southern Isolation,” “Alone by “Olawumi, Sonder‘s “Lovely” and more. Closing it all out is Niya Wells with a vocal offering on “Never Enough” that feels like the cool breeze from night’s end.
