Jamie xx co-produces Florence + The Machine’s new single, ‘Big God’

Jamie xx

Jamie xx and fellow Young Turks artist, the modern jazz maestro Kamasi Washington, have co-produced Florence + The Machine’s new single, “Big God.”

Enveloping and soulful, led by Florence Welch’s billowing vocals, “Big God’s” production is joyfully simplistic. With a driving piano at its heart, “Big God” is a congregation of sounds in the trio’s own sonic house of worship. Stripped of most of Jamie xx’s characteristic electronic tendencies, save for subtle drum padding, Washington’s jazz accents and Welch’s anthemic soul shine brightest on the new collaboration.

Of course, this production doesn’t mark the first time Jamie xx has taken on a tune outside of his electronic wheelhouse. Celebrated for his work with The xx, as well as his unique revising of Florence + The Machine’s “You’ve Got The Love,” as well as inventive takes on Adele, Jack Peñate, Glasser, and more.

Florence + The Machine will drop their impending new album, the highly anticipated High As Hope, on June 29. The record features credits from Emile Haynie — known for his work with Kanye West and Kid Cudi — as well as Sampha, Andrew Wyatt, and others.

Ryan-Adams-on-The-VoiceNot that long ago, it seemed genuinely strange to hear the words “Ryan” and “Adams” right next to each other on a big singing-competition show. In 2011, the American Idol contestant Paul McDonald sang a shuffling, Rod Stewart-esque cover of Adams’ “Come Pick Me Up” on the show, and it seemed like a … More »

Empress Of Shines Through Gleeful Send-Off Track, ‘Go to Hell’ [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site


If any rising indie pop artist deserves to release a send-off track as gleefully blunt as “Go to Hell,” it’s Empress Of–the one woman project Berklee grad Lorely Rodriguez created as an outlet for her incisive wordplay and self-produced soundscapes. “Go to Hell” is an effervescent takedown laid over a refreshing blend of barbed hooks and gritty beats. Playing on the word “hell,” Rodriguez achieves a tone that is as sweet as it is sour, shifting from a damning “They can go to hell” to a self-deprecatory “hello I am no one” within moments. The single boasts a truly ingrained chorus fitting for an artist who has opened for the likes of Kimbra and Florence + The Machine and received major industry acclaim from publications like Pitchfork.

“Go to Hell” is an empowering, yet playful bit of pop served with a smirk. Take a listen to the single above, and be sure to be on the lookout for new music from this emerging talent.
