The award-winning site’s first release is a limited edition 7″ single with San Francisco’s own Grillade, a band of six artists who bend soul, R&B, and funk.
Grillade recently collaborated with boiling under rapper-producer Big K.R.I.T on the critically crushed upon Wuz Here Sessions EP. One half of the band collectively known as The Park has also been busy rocking live everywhere from the Troubador to Last Call With Carson Daly alongside incendiary gangster MC Freddie Gibbs.
On their debut vinyl release Dream Of You/The Meeting, Grillade takes their own reign and shines. The two tracks on the single — “Dream of You” and “The Meeting” — showcase the band’s strongest elements: their lively, enraptured instrumentation and the stunningly endearing vocals of lead singer Ragen Fykes. The tracks create a soulful, playful, retro-fresh universe with Fykes leading the band on a romantic escapade through “Dream of You” and reminiscing on “The Meeting” alongside groove-heavy snaps, funky guitars, and graceful keys.
Along with the vinyl single, Potholes answers the requests of its fans with custom T-shirts featuring the site’s signature boombox logo. T-shirts are currently available in black in sizes small through extra large. Any and all purchases also receive a free Potholes In My Blog logo sticker.
Below you can stream both “Dream of You” and “The Meeting”, as well as view the fine artwork that was designed by Black-Marmalade. All our products can be found in the newly launched Potholes In My Blog Store!
