Tomorrow I’ll be at NYC’s Governors Ball on Randall’s Island and I am stoked to hear so many great bands. After all the rain we had the past two days, it is going to be a mud pit, but it’ll be worth it! Below is a Spotify playlist I put together so I could make a final decision on which bands to see. Wish I could be at multiple stages at once!
Phil Beaudreau has found the sweet spot between soul, R&B, and rap, and still manages to throw in a splash of chill nostalgia. But let’s not stop at the sound, he’s even got the mellow and smooth vocals to weave in some thoughtful lyrics. The Dawaun Parker feature in “This Is Why” slips in seamlessly to open and close the song with some pace. “Buiried Alive” isn’t new, but I liked it enough to throw it in for taste of some of his other work.
