The soundtrack to HBO’s “Big Little Lies” is fantastic

HBO has been impressing me lately with the choices for its shows’ soundtracks. Last year, astute listeners caught haunting covers on Westworld’s piano player. Songs like The Rolling Stones’ “Paint it Black,” Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” and The Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun” were each given new life by the show. And just last week, I noticed Mayer Hawthorne’s “Out of Pocket” playing in the background at a bar as Pete Holmes and T.J. Miller conversed on Crashing.

One of the newcomers to HBO’s lineup this spring – Big Little Lies – has blown me away so far with its soundtrack. Through its first four episodes, the murder-mystery/relationship drama based on Liane Moriarty’s 2014 novel of the same name has used a variety of contemporary and classic hits to effectively bolster the show’s emotions.

Without giving too much away, viewers are led to believe that somebody in the show’s incredible cast – including Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Adam Scott, Alexander Skarsgård and many talented others – has committed a murder in their picturesque Monterey Bay community. There is constantly tension of all kinds between characters. Violence and aggression fuel acts of betrayal and revenge as relationships are stretched thin over struggles for power.

As one could imagine, this drama hits even harder when accompanied by the right music. A heartbroken Witherspoon softly singing along in the car to “This Feeling” by the Alabama Shakes at her six-year-old daughter’s recommendation is simultaneously solemn and hopeful.

 

The best example might occur in the show’s opening credits. A portion of Michael Kiwanuka’s epic “Cold Little Heart” plays as characters drive along the Pacific coast. These are dangerously windy roads along steep cliffs, and an ominous, gray haze hangs over the rocky shores. On another day, this landscape would be gorgeous and calming. But the dark lens and Kiwanuka’s conflicted lyrics let us know there’s evil hiding beneath the beauty.

“Did you ever want it?
Did you want bad?
Oh, my
It tears me apart
Did you ever fight it?
All of the pain, so much power
Running through my veins
Bleeding, I’m bleeding
My cold little heart
Oh I, I can’t stand myself”

Spotify user Ignatious Pop has compiled the soundtrack in a playlist that’s updated with each new episode. It’s a great mix of soul, rock and pop through the years. For starters, here’s a sampling of my favorites so far.

Frank Ocean ft. Earl Sweatshirt – “Super Rich Kids”

Sade – “Cherish the Feeling”

Irma Thomas -“Anyone Who Knows What Love Is”

Charles Bradley – “Changes”

Leon Bridges – “River”

Here’s what Philly electro-pop singer Evan Wize has been listening to

I recently talked to Evan Wize about the making of his debut Evan Wize EP. Wize’s formal introduction to the music world is an effortlessly cool blend of pop, R&B and soul. It begs to be played on city rooftops as the sun slowly disappears on summer nights.

It’s curious then to hear from Wize that the earliest musical influences that inspired him to start singing as a teenager were mainly emo/hardcore bands like Brand New and Taking Back Sunday.

“It was a part of the people and musicians that I hung out with when I was younger,” said Wize. “That was the kind of stuff they listened to, and I wanted to get into it, too. As I grew older I just grew out of that phase like a lot of people do, and started exploring new stuff.”

Wize said his greatest period of musical discovery came when he needed it most. He was studying psychology at West Chester University, and had nearly accepted that it might be the right time to move on from making his own music.

“There was a two-year period where I was done trying to make it in music,” he said. “I was trying to do the college thing – get a degree, get a normal job – and the artists that influenced me during that time were guys like Chet Faker, The Neighbourhood, Anderson .Paak…those types of artists. They really changed my perspective on what I wanted to do as an artist and who I wanted to be.”

I asked Wize if he could put together a playlist of some of his favorites – old and new. Follow the link for a full Spotify playlist and check out the tunes below for a sampling of Wize’s taste.

This Just In…featuring Fruition, John Mayer and Tuxedo

All kinds of new music was released this week. Arcade Fire got together with Mavis Staples on a stirring new single. Austin rockers Spoon are back with a new song for the first time since 2014’s They Want My Soul. Foxygen’s Hang came out today. They reportedly employed the help of a 40-piece orchestra, and man, does that extra step pay off. And Maggie Rogerswho I recently stumbled onto – added a third song to her slight but impressive body of work.

Here’s the full playlist of this week’s favorites!

Fruition – “Labor of Love”

I’ve been listening to a whole lot of Hiss Golden Messenger recently, and that’s led me into a strange place musically I’d never expect to be. Hiss Golden Messenger doesn’t explicitly make country music – a genre I cannot and will likely never warm up to – but you can definitely hear country elements in their lyrics and twangy guitars. Alt-country / new country / southern rock…whatever you want to call it, I’m into it and surprised to find myself here.

This kinda-country kick led me to Fruition, a quintet from Portland, Oregon that is difficult to categorize. “Labor of Love” is the title track and opener of the band’s 2016 album. It features smooth transitions between banjos, mandolins and bluesy electric guitar riffs, and highlights the call-and-response and harmonies of Fruition’s three very capable vocalists.

Fruition and its unique blend of bluegrass and rock and roll will be in Philly soon, playing Union Transfer with Greensky Bluegrass on February 1st.

John Mayer – “Moving On and Getting Over”

Touring with Dead & Company has kept John Mayer busy for the past couple of years. The guitar virtuoso finally gave fans fresh music of his own on Friday with four new songs – the first batch of tracks dubbed Wave One off a new project called The Search for Everything

Mayer went in-depth with Rolling Stone to explain the creative process behind the new tunes. In the interview he also explains the choice of unrolling the record in pieces at a time:

“The price of admission is four songs,” he says. “If you don’t like these, don’t get the next four. But if I’ve engendered some kind of trust that you think i’m onto something, get the next four, and come along with me on every single wave.”

Each of the four songs addresses the pain and frustration induced by a broken heart. “Moving On and Getting Over” is the oddball of Wave One, though. Mayer’s guitar is still guiding us along for the most part, but it’s the R&B-inspired boom-tick-tap beat that you’ll find yourself nodding along to long after the song’s four minutes are up.

You’ve earned my trust, John. I’m eagerly awaiting the next wave.

Tuxedo – “Special”

As far as I’m concerned, Mayer Hawthorne can do no wrong.

The neo-soul artist from Detroit released some of the finest modern funk of 2016 with Man About Town. And out the blue, Party of One – a three-song EP just dripping with cool – appeared later the same year.

Hawthorne is back again with a few new songs from Tuxedo, the duo he forms with hip-hop producer Jake One. It is called Fux with the Tux. Really, that should be all I need to tell you to catch your interest.

“Special” has the same driving funky guitar riff heard on parts of Party of One – see “Time For Love” – but is dipped in an extra layer of late-night, low-light swagger.

This Just In…featuring Chance The Rapper, Flo Morrissey & Matthew E. White and Steve Gunn

Sorry this one’s a couple days late! I think it’s worth the wait though.

Chance The Rapper – “Blessings”

I admittedly am not the biggest fan of rap. But every now and then something comes along that just clicks. This time that surprise came in the form of Chance The Rapper.

I am so late to the game on this one. Chance’s Coloring Book was widely regarded as one of the best albums of last year. You can find it in the top 10 of just about everyone’s best of 2016 lists, including industry authorities like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Stereogum

There’s not much more that needs to be said about Chance’s work. “Blessings” is a personal favorite because of the laid back beat, sterling vocal support from Jamila Woods and Chance’s effortlessly humble delivery and lyrics.

Flo Morrissey & Matthew E. White – “Thinking Bout You”

Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White‘s duet album Gentlewoman, Ruby Man has very quickly become one of my favorite releases of the new year. A compilation of covers, each song is completely unique regardless of whether the original is an old favorite or a hidden gem. There’s elements of soul, funk and R&B threaded seamlessly throughout.

“Look At What The Light Did Now” – originally performed by Little Wings and later covered by Canadian singer/songwriter Feist – was the first single to be released ahead of the full album. For a few days there, it was so difficult to make myself listen to anything else. Fortunately the rest of the songs on the record offered even more options to keep on repeat.

Morrissey and White borrow from a wide variety of genres, including the Grease soundtrack, singer Nino Ferrer on “Looking For You,” and often-sampled funk artist Roy Ayers with “Everybody Loves The Sunshine.”

Frank Ocean’s simple yet profound “Thinking Bout You” was a monster hit off his 2012 debut Channel OrangeMorrissey replaces Ocean’s falsetto in the chorus, and White’s electric guitar is swapped in as well. It’s a lighter take on Ocean’s version that highlights the vocal interplay between White’s hushed baritone and Morrissey’s soaring high notes.

For those interested in learning more about how Morrissey and White teamed up, check out the quick documentary below.

“It’s a moment with another person that I really enjoy making music with, being around, and just sort of celebrating that energy,” White says in the video. “For me, I want it to be a record that’s a real document of that.”

Steve Gunn – “Ancient Jules”

Many months ago a friend of mine, whose musical taste I greatly respect, recommended I check out Steve Gunn. This is a fine example of better late than never.

Gunn is the kind of supremely talented, (generally) under-the-radar musician that you hear and figure you have to be one of the first few who have stumbled onto a prodigy. Otherwise he’d be a household name. As it turns out, Gunn has released three solo albums since 2013, and has collaborated with Kurt Vile and Mike Gangloff on a few different projects.

“Ancient Jules” is a rumbling, six-minute showcase of Gunn’s ability. His solo toward the end takes us dangerously close to going off the rails before Gunn reels it back in just time.

Gunn will play a sold out show with Lee Ranaldo at PhilaMOCA this Saturday. Here’s a little taste of what too many in town will be missing:

This Just In…featuring Electric Guest, Hippo Campus and Lady Wray

A bunch of new tunes were released this week by some big name artists , including The Shins and The xxTheo Katzman’s second full length came out today, as did an EP of previously unreleased songs by Night Moves.

You can check out some of those new releases in this week’s playlist. But here are a few of this week’s best of the best.

Electric Guest – “Dear To Me”

Electric Guest’s debut record from 2012 – Mondo – is one of the few albums I return to multiple times each year. The lead single off that – “This Head I Hold” – got some traction among a national audience, and rightfully so. But the whole thing is a soulful, indie pop masterpiece if you spend some time with it.

The duo is comprised of Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton. Taccone is the brother of Saturday Night Live/Lonely Island star Jorma Taccone, and helped with production on classics like “Dick in a Box.” It was with the help of his older brother that Asa got hooked up with highly sought after producer Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse. 

Production of Mondo reportedly took more than five years. Given that, I had pretty much assumed by this point that maybe it was a one-and-done.

Not only is “Dear To Me” a pleasant surprise, but more importantly it’s silky smooth. Taccone sings about the ups and downs of a relationship he ultimately understands is worth fighting for.

Hippo Campus – “Close To Gold”

I thought Hippo Campus was a one-hit wonder when “Suicide Saturday” blew up for a bit in 2015. That song helped score the young rockers from St. Paul a spot at Austin City Limits and a late-night appearance on Conan.

It turns out I just hadn’t given them enough of a chance. “Close To Gold” is a great representation of what the band’s guitar-driven sound is capable of. The tempo is in flux throughout and that keeps you waiting for what’s going to come next. And I love their vocal harmony at the end. All four of them nearly screaming together over guitarist Nathan Stocker’s playful riff makes for some kind of island-punk (new genre?).

After releasing two EPs in 2015 – South and Bashful Creatures – Hippo Campus will release its first album – Landmark – on Feb. 24. They begin a tour at the end of the month, which includes a stop at Union Transfer on March 28.

Lady Wray – “Do It Again”

Lady Wray’s sound has grown drastically since she made her musical debut back in 1998. The singer – born Nicole Rayrecorded under the name Nicole as Missy Elliot’s first signing to her Gold Mind label.  Nicole’s “Make it Hot” off a record of the same name was certified gold and has more than one million streams on Spotify.

Wray has since left her hot 100/R&B roots behind and developed a stunning and sultry voice. She shows great range all across 2016’s Queen Alone“Guilty” is the song that first got my attention, but “Do It Again” confirmed Wray’s potential as neo-soul royalty.

This Just In…featuring Evolfo, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and Theo Katzman

Peep the playlist for this week’s keepers.

Evolfo – “Moon Eclipsed the Sun”

Evolfo is self-described as “garage-soul.” When I first heard them I immediately thought of The Black Keys, specifically Brothers-era Black Keys. It’s the kind of music you would listen to in a ’72 El Camino on dark streets in a lost neighborhood of a big city. On “Moon Eclipsed the Sun,” the Brooklyn-based rockers give us a stiff bass line and fuzzy guitar effects, while singer Matt Gibbs‘ distant vocals wail about a lost love that left him for good reason.

St. Paul & The Broken Bones – “Midnight on the Earth”

I realize now that I didn’t give St. Paul & The Broken Bones‘ 2016 release – Sea of Noise – a fair chance when it first came out.

I had fallen so hard for them a couple of years back when they debuted with Half the City. It was both joyous and heartbreaking. I remember hearing “Call Me” for the first time and just being blown away by frontman Paul Janeway’s soulful voice. Seeing them live at Bonnaroo was a revelation, with Janeway dancing around like James Brown in his sweat-soaked suit jacket.

Sea of Noise changes the pace from Half the City, and I think that’s why it took me a little longer to warm up to it. It’s a little edgier and wanders further out than the straightforward, Motown-esque hits found on the band’s first album. “Midnight on the Earth” is a great example of that. What starts with a simple drum-driven groove over Janeway’s “Na-na-na-na-na” melody steadily builds to a frantic climax. Janeway’s falsetto goes up and up, and the horn section’s notes go higher and higher till they might shatter nearby windows….A sea of noise, indeed.

Theo Katzman – “Crappy Love Song”

Theo Katzman’s second full length is due out on January 6th, and I cannot wait.

Katzman is a multi-instrumentalist from the funk group Vulfpeck. “Crappy Love Song” is stripped down from the dance-your-booty-off music Vulpeck regularly delivers, and that’s perfectly OK. If you still do want to dance around your room like a fool with Katzman, try “Hard Work.”

A buddy of mine pointed out that Katzman’s voice sounds a bit like blue-eyed soul singer Allen Stone. He and Katzman do share the same tones, but Katzman’s vocals are appropriately a little less refined and a bit raw. That vocal lens and honest songwriting make Katzman an every man we can all get behind.

This Just In…featuring Maggie Rogers, Michael Kiwanuka and YAWN

Happy Holidays!

It’s not much, but this week’s playlist is my holiday gift to the world. Enjoy, world!

Maggie Rogers – “Alaska”

Anything Pharrell touches seems to turn to gold. In Maggie Rogers‘ case, what she had was already golden. It just took someone like Pharrell taking notice for it to really shine.

Rogers was a student at NYU when Pharrell dropped by the Clive Davis Institute in February for an edition of Masterclass. He was there to critique music students’ work and offer advice.

But Pharrell had no criticism after Rogers played “Alaska” for him. He just sat next to her, arms folded across his chest as various expressions of impressed bewilderment cycled across his face. After the chorus hits for the first time, he gets that “Oh shit…this is a hit,” look.

pharrell

“Oh shit…” is right.

Rogers will be stopping in Philly for a sold out show at The Foundry on April 7th.

Michael Kiwanuka – “Love & Hate”

For his sophomore release – Love & Hate – Michael Kiwanuka enlisted the help of highly sought after producer Brian “Danger Mouse” Burton. Kiwanuka told Rolling Stone that Burton helped in encouraging him to build his songs in the studio from scratch.

That approach is evident on the album’s seven-minute title track, opening with just Kiwanuka’s acoustic guitar and a full chorus providing a back beat. Layers of percussion and dramatic synths help build the landscape until Kiwanuka’s weathered voice emerges.

He sounds tired and beaten down: “Standing now / Calling all the people here to see the show / Calling for my demons now to let me go / I need something, give me something wonderful.” But in the chorus he assures us (or more likely himself) that there’s still fight left in him: “You can’t take me down / You can’t break me down / You can’t take me down.”

YAWN – “Day Trip”

Judging by the video for “Day Trip,” YAWN sure seems like a fun group of dudes to hang out with.

After wrapping a wild (chemically enhanced) Swedish Fish trip in the woods, members of the band emerge to a city rooftop party. It’s the kind of scene you would hear Stefon rave about on Weekend Update“This private rooftop getaway has toasted Peeps, above ground snorkeling and sacrificial beard trimming.”

“Day Trip” has that “soundtrack to your summer” sound. Over a breezy, bouncy melody, frontman Adam Gil sings: “In the light of the morning / Everything feels alright / In the day morning after / Can we stay through the night?”

It’s care-free, let’s dance through the night because we can, kind of music.

-Mike Still

This Just In…featuring B.B. King, Father John Misty and Pavo Pavo

This was one of those rare weeks where new music came right to me, and a lot of it you’ll find on this playlist.

Here a few songs that I’ve had on repeat:

B.B. King – “The Thrill Is Gone”

Last weekend my girlfriend and I were wandering down South Street looking for a place to escape the cold. We chose Jet Wine Bar, for no reason other than it meant being inside somewhere.

There were just two other patrons sitting at the rounded bar that sat no more than 15 people, and an episode of Lost was playing muted on the flat screen above rows of liquor bottles.

This place was quirky but in the best way possible. I knew we were in the right place the moment I recognized new A Tribe Called Quest tunes coming from the speakers. For the hour or so we were there, soul and funk hits from all time periods just kept coming. D’Angelo, Ike & Tina Turner…and finally B.B. King.

King’s cover of “The Thrill Is Gone” was released as a single in 1969 and earned him a Grammy in 1970. In 2011, Rolling Stone named it No. 183 in its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. It’s a slow toe-tapper with a beautiful interplay between strings and King’s guitar solos, showcasing a blues legend doing what he did best.

Father John Misty – “Real Love Baby”

My brother sent me a text last Friday night from a friend’s wedding he was attending. He said the bride and groom had just had their first dance to Father John Misty’s “Real Love Baby.” I told him, “I think they’re gonna make it.”

This standalone single released in July is a simple, sappy love song. There’s little fuss. Just a smooth melody and Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty) spilling his heart:

“I’m in love, I’m alive
I belong to the stars and sky
Let’s forget who we are for one night
We’re not animals baby
It’s the people who lie”

It’s actually a lot like being stupidly in love. The song is soaked in sunshine and optimism, and there’s nothing there to distract you from that.

Pavo Pavo – “Ran Ran Run”

Tonight I’m going to see Allen Tate – lead male singer from folk-rock outfit San Fermin – play a solo show at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. Pavo Pavo will be opening for him, so I decided to check them out.

As it turns out, members of the five-piece from Brooklyn have “worked closely” in the past with San Fermin and a number of other highly regarded musicians on the indie scene. That list includes co-producers of Pavo Pavo’s debut album Young Narrator in The Breakers Sam Cohen (Yellowbirds) and Dan Molad (Lucius).

“Ran Ran Run” opens the record in whimsical fashion. Eliza Bags‘ vocals are hazy and almost distant. She could totally moonlight as the narrator of your dreams. I’m gonna go ahead and steal this description from a Stereogum review because it’s perfect: “Pavo Pavo makes weightless pop music that sounds like it was beamed down from a glimmering utopian future.”

Thank you, Spotify! – Top Songs 2016 playlist

As much as I’ve learned to love looking forward to Spotify’s automatically generated playlist with my most played songs of the year, there are admittedly few surprises.

After all, I’m aware that I’m the one that chose to listen to Whitney’s Light Upon the Lake nearly every day since it was released back in June. It’s not all that enlightening to find out that three songs off that album are among my top five.

Still, it’s an interesting way to make sense of your taste. I always struggle when someone asks: What kind of music are you into? With this, I can tell them anything they’d like know – and then some – with one playlist.

My top 10 most played songs of the year:

  1. Whitney – No Woman
  2. The Leers – I Can’t Cope
  3. Whitney – Golden Days
  4. Lake Street Dive – How Good It Feels
  5. Whitney – Dave’s Song
  6. The Leers – Fool
  7. Night Moves – Carl Sagan
  8. Allen Stone – I Know That I Wasn’t Right
  9. Lotus – When Our Nerves No Longer Twitch
  10. White Denim – Take It Easy (Ever After Lasting Love)

And a deeper look into a few of my favorite albums from 2016:

Whitney – Light Upon the Lake

whitney

I didn’t want to attempt to rank my favorite albums of the year. I don’t think it’s fair to say one is better than another. You like different bands for different reasons. Apples and oranges, if you will.

Light Upon the Lake, however, was far and away my favorite new release this year. Whitney’s core is the combo of singing drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek, both formerly members of the now defunct Smith Westerns. Ehrlich also drummed for another one of my favorite groups – Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

As the story goes, when Smith Westerns called in quits in 2014, the two began working on solo stuff and were bouncing ideas off of each other. Both Ehrlich and Kakacek had recently been through bad breakups and found writing together to be therapeutic. In an interview with The Line of Best Fit, Kakacek explained how the album’s first single – “Golden Days” – helped them through that process:

“To me, ‘Golden Days’ is the song we both sent our ex-girlfriends after we made it,” Kakacek explains, “to get some kind of closure. I remember sending it to her and she just started bawling. It wasn’t even in a sense of getting back together, more like – I sent you this, and now we can be friends, and everything’s cool.”

This is essentially a microcosm of the beauty of Light Upon the Lake. I’ve never experienced a more accurate portrayal of the bliss and tragedy of heartbreak. On “Golden Days,” Ehrlich sings:

“Oh, don’t you save me from hangin’ on
I tell myself what we had is gone
And after all that I put you through
I get knocked out like I never knew”

There is a thick layer of nostalgia over the hopeful sound of Ehrlich’s earnest falsetto. It’s a longing for the good ol’ days, like those that Ehrlich sings about on the lighthearted “No Matter Where We Go”:

“I can take you out
I wanna drive around
With you with the windows down
And we can run all night”

This emotional lyrical journey, combined with Whitney’s soulful and wistful sound, made for a near-perfect debut I expect to revisit regularly for a long time to come.

The Leers – Are You Curious? 

the-leers

I also have Spotify to thank for helping me find The Leers. Nine out of 10 times when I explore a band the app has recommended to me based on my listening history, I quickly move on after a couple songs. But for once I found myself going back to Are You Curious? again and again.

Maybe it’s the variety the young New Zealanders offer. If someone only played “I Can’t Cope” for you – a funky account of a stoner battling his anxiety, book-ended by head-bobbing grooves – you’d miss out on a unique blend of styles.

There’s a sense early on in the album that the band has some cornered aggression waiting to be released. It builds during “Hold On, You’ll See,” evidenced by guitarist James Kippenberger’s threatening solo midway through the song. Just a track later, that distorted guitar is growling menacingly through your headphones on the instrumental “Escapades.”

It’s not all angry, in-your-face rock and roll. There are many layers to peel back. “Easy Love” offers an infectious, simple hook along with some soft grooves. “Who The Hell” is your classic tale of unabashed jealousy.”Who the hell did you go out with last night?” wonders vocalist Matt Bidois.

What connects this mix of songs is an unmistakable coolness. These guys don’t give a fuck about what you expected to hear from an up and coming band making its full-length debut. Are You Curious? is unique and ambitious, but every aggressive punch lands with staying power.

Night Moves – Pennied Days

night-moves

I first listened to Pennied Days while riding a bike alone through the empty streets of Philadelphia late at night.

It was the perfect soundtrack.

These songs feel so recognizable. Not unlike Whitney’s Light Upon the Lake, Night Moves create a longing for the past. On “Leave Your Light On,” frontman John Pelant chooses to ignore that his once-love has moved on:

“So leave your light on
Still I’m wondering just where you’ve gone
Steal the days and it takes me back
Lovingly, lovingly
Somedays I wish it had last”

Despite some heartache, this is warm and inviting psych-pop with earworm hooks and tight grooves. It creates a freeing, weightlessness feeling. You feel it almost immediately during a break in the action early on in the album’s opener, “Carl Sagan.” Pelant’s voice is stretched thin above synths and dramatic piano. You can picture yourself floating for a moment through the arrangement.

I’ve tried to make sense of the record’s album art. It appears to be a couple people resting on a psychedelic cliff side, looking out to an otherwordly sky (See right-most photo in the featured image at the top of the page for reference.) Make of it what you will. I like to think it’s telling us just to slow down and appreciate the great unknown.
