Jimmy Jams #2: That Kind of Growing Up Music

Your girl is back with some more bops to share with you all! I want to focus on some specific artists that I’ve been really adoring at the moment:

 

In Love With a Ghost

A good b e a t to listen to during this section ❤

I found out about ILWAG a while back in the year and let me tell you that it felt like getting cold water splashed on your face on a vERY HOT Vegas day. He mixes the everyday sounds of living with a sort of a video game RPG tone. He really knows how to display emotions through his music and every song seems fitting for an adventure. I enjoy listening to him when I’m just about to go to bed or just doing the ‘daily things’ I do around mi casa.

 

Noname

Here’s a little t a s t e of what’s in store!

Okay so I’ve been listening to Noname for almost a year now and I will have you know that I. Still. Can’t. Get. Over. Her. Rap is one of my favorite sounds of music but sometimes some rap songs feel like they’re not genuine or talks about getting black-out drunk or going to strip clubs (which living in Nevada, I’ve seen a lot of and it does not look fun.) But with Noname, her songs are about just growing up with family, how to cope with life and death, and celebrating but also showing the struggles that comes with growing up black. Her songs are realistic and can hit a nerve with anyone who comes across them and has a listen.

 

Suchmos

Some f u n k for ya.

This year I got really engrossed in listening to 80’s music from Japan. The beats were always so intoxicating and gives off that “night music” vibe, which I love. Suchmos is a more modern Japanese band that actually got their band name from Louis Armstrong’s nickname which was Satchmo. It’s very cool hearing a Japanese group take a swing at bringing back that jazzy, funk-style music while also giving it a new sound altogether.

 

DEAN

Speaking of f u n k y dudes…

A friend of mine referred him to me a while back to introduce me to the “pit” that is Korean music. I say pit because it’s quite hard to get out of once you fall into it. At first I couldn’t really get into his music, but as I grew, and my music genre started to change to more R&B which I thought I would NEVER say, I realized how great of an artist he really is. His voice is relaxing and not harsh, The beat choice fits so well with every song. I’m still new to this genre of music, but kudos to the composers/mixers and to DEAN as well for making such bops!

 

Glass Animals

And l a s t but not least!

I think it’s been 3 years that I’ve been a supporter for Glass Animals. I know it’s cliché, but their songs are like flavors and every one has it’s own taste; it’s wonderful! Their songs leave you satisfied but still wanting more; an oxymoron I know. Just like with every good song, it makes me want to pack up my stuff and just travel, but when do I not feel like that?

 

I always love finding new music choices to listen to for any kind of mood. I’m currently listening to a lot of R&B, Merengue, K-pop, and Sad Rap as per usual and I’ve been really happy for the most part. Music is just so wonderful and helps me to create my best works, especially in drawing. If you ever need any recommendations feel free to start a conversation with me or just check out my Spotify Dagurlz02 for some new beats! Oh and go give these artists some love!

 

Happy Listening!!!
