The B-Side: Unfound Reliance

No one should be surprised when an absolute banger of a metal song is released from Sweden, it’s basically their number one export, but a lack of surprise does not make for a lack of “oh hell yeah!” “Legacy” by Unfound Reliance rips from start to finish. Brutal and melodic it’s everything we love about metal in one tight package. Turn it up and then turn it up some more.

Fasman’s Finds – Jeremih

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

This week we’re revisiting an oldie but goodie. Summertime is the time for listening to loud music outside (only if it’s good) or, in my case, being held captive inside by a billion cicadas and thinking about what I would listen to if I were outside. For R&B records, there is really only one answer, and that’s Jeremih‘s Late Nights: The Album

Top to bottom, this album is so good that I can even forgive Jeremih for working with J. Cole. There are a few tracks that are so perfect for those late, slow, warm nights that it’s almost overwhelming. Try listening to “Pass Dat” or “oui” and not picture yourself in a convertible, driving around with your boo and smoking something sweet. The production is also slow and warm, but precise, the sonic equivalent of taking a xanax and drinking a cup of coffee. There is so much to relax into and so much to listen to, once these cicadas go away.
