SONG OF THE DAY: Coyote Kisses – “Illusion”

I have a Spotify playlist containing over 1,200 songs by artists I’ve been meaning to give a try, and I have no idea how a chillstep artist called Coyote Kisses ended up among my mishmash of bluegrass and indie/alternative bands. Even so, I happened to shuffle to this song and instantly began obsessing over it for a week. The airy ambient instrumentation, gradual buildup, and chills-down-your-spine bass drop allow it to exhilaratingly stand out from whatever EDM you typically listen to–which for me is usually very little, so kudos to these producers.

SONG OF THE DAY: PELL – “QUESO”

Queso will be debuting his album “Limbo” on November 6th. “Queso” is a single from the album and if it is any indication of how the album will sound, we’re all in for a treat. “Queso” grooves along and is a catchy tune. The lyrics aren’t going to change your life, but they’ll make you move. “I got that mula mula queso-eso – camoflauge money they can’t see my bagel.” Enjoy!
