Nick Hook: 'Like Water'

Nick Hook's new album Like Water came out of nowhere.  Earlier this week Hook dropped the record on Calm + Collect a label partly of his own creation that's being rejuvenated.  The record is a refreshing collection of tracks that defy expectation.  Nick Hook brings the innovative perspective that has always made his music so fascinating.  These tracks feel a whole lot different than those of Relationships, his most recent album on Fool's Gold Records.  The title alludes to way the album flows, as though it's always moving, and adapting.  Perhaps that's some of what Nick Hook is trying to impart with this music.  As always it will take repeat listens to really grasp just what he's doing here.

Get Like Water now!

THEY ft. Wiz Khalifa 'What I Know Now'

This new one from THEY with Wiz Khalifa has a major 90's vibe.  The style of the video, the music, it's reminiscent of an influential, and nostalgically perceived era in hip hop and R&B.  The truth is these guys are making something totally brand new, and it's feels like they're drawing influence from, and showing appreciation to some classics.  'What I Know Now' is gonna get stuck in your head almost right away after your first listen so don't delay.
