…This is the Inbox Jukebox:
Chad Tepper x Matisyahu – “Buy Us A House”
Chad Tepper’s vocals are smooth-with-a-roughness and aimed straight at your serotonin levels. “Buy Us A House” is just so fucken happy (and sentimental). You’ll be all in, especially when Matisyahu adds a reggae flow to this alt-rock spiced, pop-sweetened, radio rocker.
LYLVC – “Perfect Drug”
What if we offered you a new sound, somewhere between Evanescence and Linkin Park? Would that feed your addictions? We already know the answer; this is your second shot at a “Perfect Drug” (shoutout to NIN). The soaring vocals by Alyse Zavala, shredded instrumentation, and brutal bars from Oscar Romero will get you lifted.
Crooked Teeth x Cami Petyn – “Loser”
“Loser” is a hard-driving rant, an outsider anthem, and a nu-mental thrill. Crooked Teeth and Cami Petyn rail on the track. Their chanted vocals elevate heart rates and make you want to break sh!t (like institutions and power imbalances). Fly your flag your way and turn this one up.
IJ SHOUTOUT: Far From Saints – “Let’s Turn This Back Around”
SHOUTOUT to Kelly Jones (Stereophonics) and Patty Lynn (The Wind and The Wave) for their folksy, floaty debut as a duo: “Let’s Turn This Back Around”.
