…This is the Inbox Jukebox:

Cierra Ramirez – “Liquid Courage (Love Me Better)”

I just want you ta love me betta… 

Cierra Ramirez has no lies detected in her newest single “Liquid Courage (Love Me Better)”. We dare you not rock & sway, all the way through this tropical laced bop. From the click-ca-click-click of the castanets (like stilettos stepping all over your feelings), to the atmospheric buzz of the keys, to what sounds like a marimba on molly… Cierra has us hooked. So pour us another glass of liquid courage and let this track roll.

Sara Diamond – “Ride”

We love songs you can chill to while you drive and Sara Diamond just made the playlist with “Ride”. There’s so much sass to this laidback neo-soul tune. Resistance is low. This one will have you nodding your head while you wink at the cuties going by like, “Hey, nice ride.”

“Jesus Couldn’t Love Me” is the diary of a heartache played on piano. Chloe Lilac sings as though this ballad is a lifeline—catching us up in gentle harmonies that crescendo and drop into one helluva ride. “Jesus Couldn’t Love Me” resonates
with emotional isolation but, as it builds, there’s a sense of hope underscoring
the instrumentation…which leaves this tune broken but beautiful…as it fades
into silence.
