what I'm listening to
Lately, my fave new song on repeat is "Sure Thing" by new artist, Miguel.
It's an R&B pop diddy, but I don't want to get in trouble with labeling music. The song has fun loving lyrics and a smooth, secretive beat. I'm down, minus lines like "Between you and I, simple as pie, baby." I first got wind of little Miguel when I was perusing the Myspace page of a fave artist, Esthero. She'd posted a song, featuring him called "The Many Times I Feel Lonely" that was gorgeous, provoking dirty lonesome thoughts. I did a little searching to find his page to delve deeper into his sound and discovered "Sure Thing", and another entitled, "Dig".
His is a fresh sound that will hopefully transfer live, and his style is sleek and sassy with old and new funk. I will admit that there is some original attempts (bitch!) with the rhyming but the vibe is what gets me. You will catch me snapping my fingers to it. It's the kind of song that will make you want to ride through town with the windows down and the bass up high. As a city dweller, I do crave a slice of suburban excitement. Play it loud to get the full effect.
You can hear it on his myspace page,
And, of course on my page,
But, I think you have to be my friend to view my profile.
