It’s been a good couple of days for music lovers. The legendary D’Angelo made his long-awaited comeback. J. Cole returned to his roots on 2014 Forest Hills Drive, and JMSN kept us fed on the indie R&B tip. However, in the midst of such big releases, it’s easy to forget about the smaller artists.
Trebles and Blues is the type of musician who continually pushes the boundaries of instrumentation. On his new album Seasonality, expertly fuses Brazilian funk and soul into an auditory experience that seeks to bridge the gap between the changing seasons. Seasonality is part summery ode, part reflective winter music. If you don’t know where to dig in, “On the Way Out,” is good a place as any. The Kendrick Lamar sample is utilized perfectly.
Take a listen to Seasonality below, and make sure to support Trebles and Blues this holiday season over at his Bandcamp.
