Inbox Jukebox #186: Bea Miller, Julia Wolf, poptropicaslutz!, Valley, JESSIA, Jessie Murph, Dreamer Isioma

…This is the Inbox Jukebox:

Bea Miller – “lonely bitch”

Comfort zones are for happy bitches; when you’re the “lonely bitch” good love shocks you and shakes you up. Bea Miller knows what that’s like. Her latest is grungy and angsty and all caught up in the head games of love. With vocals that ring with finger-popping objections and melodic magnetism, it’s good to be the “lonely bitch”.

Julia Wolf – “Rookie of the Year”

“Rookie of The Year” is a journal entry—pouring truth into its lyrical verses and keys that hum like a best friend on a bender. Julia Wolf’s voice is distinct as a fingerprint; it’s hers alone, somewhere between whisper and purr, and so tangible it’s like she’s singing to you. When she declares, “I’m the mutha fuckin rookie of the year” you know she’s talking about real things and real times that become the fabric of who you are.

poptropicaslutz! – “Sierra Echo X-Ray”

The glitchy, video game-styled sonics underscoring “Sierra Echo X-Ray” could easily trick you into a false sense of security. But hold up or poptropicaslutz! will get you caught. This is not about love; it’s about gaming the heart to get to the ‘yams’. We’re warning you, don’t be seduced by their “monopoly and charcuterie” (but you should definitely play along and play this not-a-love song made for skaters at the arcade really loud. 

Valley – “Throwback Tears”

The 90s R&B-infused, indie-rocking, pop petulance of “Throwback Tears” will make you spin the musical block on your exes. Just keep it lyrical, y’all. Valley knows how to get you bopping while being sassy—and we love them for it. 

IJ SHOUTOUT: JESSIA – “Nobody Hates You”

SHOUTOUT to JESSIA for the high-wired and soothing “Nobody Hates You”. We need to hear this today, so come and chant it with us!

IJ SHOUTOUT: Jessie Murph – “About You”

SHOUTOUT to Jessie Murph for the ‘fuck these folks’ anthem we didn’t know we needed until we suddenly exhaled. We’re singing “About You” with our middle fingers held high (but with LOVE).

IJ SHOUTOUT: Dreamer Isioma – “Fuck Tha World”

SHOUTOUT to Dreamer Isioma for “Fuck Tha World”. His latest track is half-Lauren Hill, half-Floetry and yet made for these indie streets.
