Lee Fields finds himself in conflict when he comes across a cunning lady that tempts him to change his “Faithful Man” ways. Taking place in a nightclub, the video shows what goes on behind the shadows. A fervent Lee takes the stage pleading to keep him from ‘doing wrong.’ This song is soul to the highest degree.

With the video also comes the release of a limited edition 7″ for all the vinyl lovers out there.

New Track: Ayah – “Live The Life”

 

Oh em gee, squeeeaaalll! Love love love this new track by our gal Ayah. Taking us back to that true blue 90s R&B, giving us some Zhané vibes. Listen to “Live The Life” below and then join us in the incessant repeating spree. To note, Ayah recorded this back in 2007 but seemingly felt inspired to dig out and share something from the vaults – so awesome when artists decided to do that!

Video: MS MR – “Ash Tree Lane”

 

Perhaps you remember MS MR from their enrapturing “Hurricane” track we posted a while back. This new video is for “Ash Tree Lane,” that starts its first minute out with vintage horror visuals and narration, with the song hitting around the 1:03 mark. The lead vocalist’s voice at time reminds us of Florence Welch. Digging the vibes.

Their Candy Bar Creep Show EP is also now out! Each track on the EP has a distinctly different feel, too. Revel in the haze.

Video: Sky Ferreira – “Everything is Embarrassing”

Sky Ferreira got her a little vintage Madonna steez going on. In this video for “Everything is Embarrassing,” she flails about like the natural carefree pop star rocker she seems destined to be. That early 90s pop zest on this tune is exactly what we needed to make this sunny Friday seem all the more perfect.

Pitchfork even gave it the honor of Best New Track when it first came out – not too shabby. And she’s quite easy on the eyes with that carefully crafted “messy” hair, too, huh? Winning all around.

The track is part of her upcoming EP, Ghost, where Sky calls on an impressive cast of producers, including Greg Kurstin (Santigold, The Shins), Jon Brion (Fiona Apple), and Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher).

Look out for Ghost on October 16.
