This Is Your World – [Shy Girls]

By Lucas Garrison // 17 Jan 2019

Though it is only about a year old, the Keep Cool imprint some serious weight behind it. Under the RCA umbrella, Keep Cool was co-created by  Tunji Balogun, who, if you’re wondering, has played an instrumental role in the career of SZA, Khalid, Bryson Tiller, H.E.R., and Goldlink (just to name a few). Just yesterday, the imprint announced the “Keep Cool Projects”, described on  Twitter as a “forum for events, visual content, everything-in-between + a way for us to release music we love that might otherwise get lost in traditional systems.” The first project? “This Is Your World”: a smooth, understated effort from Portland crooner, Shy Girls. With a plunging bass, steady drums, and a smooth guitar solo that rounds out the effort, the track gives off some jazzy vibes. Vocally, Shy Girls impresses with his gliding, feathery vocals that, when juxtaposed with the bass-driven boardwalk, provide a unique flavor, and the final result is a song that I can’t seem to keep off of repeat. That said, “This Is Your World” is the first single off Shy Girls’ forthcoming album, Bird on the Wing, set to drop this spring. Be sure to keep a close eye on the Keep Cool Projects as well.

6 AM – [Ren Haze]

By Seamus Fay // 17 Jan 2019

At 6 AM, the world starts to wake up, pastel colors and morning fog start to fill the sky, and things pick back up from the day before — that is, if they ever ended the previous night. Here to soundtrack this beautiful time of the day, an artist by the name of Ren Haze is here on our pages with his brand new single, “6 AM”. Thinking about what I picture 6 AM to look like (and in reference to the song’s artwork), I believe it’s safe to say that Haze’s latest is the perfect soundtrack for the early morning hours. It’s comfortable yet energized, all the while honest and thorough as can be. The lyrics are a function of the surrounding sonic atmosphere, and in such a way, “6 AM” acts much more as a painting than it does a song. Truthfully, this is one of the most beautiful pieces of art I’ve stumbled upon in recent memory, and while this is a bold claim, the music speaks for itself. With the skill exemplified in “6 AM”, Ren Haze is ready to accomplish big things in 2019, so check out his latest single below and stay up to date …

Dreams – [HeyDeon]

By Chuck Ramos // 17 Jan 2019

I have the pleasure of introducing the Lyrical Lemonade community to an extremely talented artist by the name of HeyDeon. Combining all the best elements of hip-hop and R&B, HeyDeon creates a hybrid style that can only be found by listening to his music. His newest single, “Dreams,” is a reaffirmation of his hustle and the reasoning behind all the moves he has been making up until this point. The track begins softly with a set of piano keys leading it in until a faint bass kicks in providing the necessary bounce to the uplifting anthem. This is the Eastside Long Beach MC’s latest offering since his last project, Long Story Short, released in late November of last year. Listen to HeyDeon’s new track below and make sure to leave us your thoughts on the Long Beach artist in the comment section!

Habit – [Still Woozy]

By Jarred Howard // 17 Jan 2019

Oakland, California singer and songwriter Still Woozy continues to build momentum with the release of his groovy psychedelic single “Habit.” Woozy is one of those artists that’s multi-talented and is influenced by various genres in music. The first song that captivated my attention was the track “Goodie Bag.” Right away I was enamored by his electronic sound blended in with small traces of rap and r&b influences. The transitions and breaks are smooth throughout the song which helps add to the funky element that Still Woozy embodies. I like to imagine it being like new age psychedelic music, something that could’ve come from the 70’s but still feels modern, This is the sixth single that he’s released from his vault and he’s currently headlining his own 19 city tour with supporting acts. Hopefully, when the tour is done we can get a full body of work that we can digest and dive into. Stream Still Woozy’s “Habit” below.
