“New Shapes” – Diplo ft. Octavian

Energy vampire Diplo strikes again to suckle off the talent of yet another up and coming performer. After stalking and fan-boying out over the French-British rapper, he cornered Octavian in L.A. long enough to lay this track down. Gotta give it up for Diplo not doing the exact thing he always does for once. Remember those promo pics where he had that little peach fuzz going? Wonder if he can grow a mustache yet. This one’s a bit of a non-starter. #issaflop

“Worth It” – Roy Woods

Hmmm. His earlier stuff was on fire, but this is kind of connect the dots familiar. Wonder what happened? We want that 30 seconds of our life back- listening to this for free wasn’t “worth it.” #issaflop

“TV” – Elohim

This will for sure be played at every Urban Outfitters. Elohim makes her depression sound really fun! This may be the cheeriest song about wanting to end it all. She shows promise for originality and experimentation and we can’t wait to hear more. #issabop

“Stranger” – Avonlea

Never heard Avonlea before, but we like her style. A very chill bop, just got picked up by the crew and headed to Will Rogers beach. Get in loser we’re going cruising. Avonlea’s laser focused delivery style carries things along quite nicely. Look forward to the next one. #issabop

“Handmade Heaven” – MARINA

Either you like MARINA or you don’t. So here is the review if you like her: Husky voiced Welsh song bird Marina releases first solo release, “Handmade Heaven.” Decorated throughout by her sweet melodious warbles and crisp pronunciations of lyrics that belie an almost ethereal, heavenly effect; “In this handmade heaven/I come alive/bluebirds forever, color the sky/ In this handmade heaven/we forget the time/’Cause birds of a feather fly together.” Her 2015 hit “Blue” was a group effort (remember Marina and the Diamonds?) and she leaves that cozy nest of a prior groups’ success behind her…as she soars upward and onward.
