Suede Jury- “A Shame”

The extremely talented Suede Jury, a Brooklyn-based lyrical hip hop artist, puts together music and sounds with which to carry his flows in a moving manner. His words are something inspirational and distinct; delivered in a smooth, important way with intelligence and compassion. Displaying social awareness and consciousness in a hip, musical style, Suede Jury is someone to keep an eye out for and listen to. Good attitude, good beats, great words.

He also tuned me into this sweet cover of Beyonce’s “Crazy in love”

Antony and the Johnsons- “Crazy in Love” cover

I got tired for a while of Antony and the Johnson’s dramatic, almost operatic style of music, but I have always saved a place for them in my heart and come back to it every now and again. Beyonce’s “Crazy in love” is unavoidable. Even without TV and radio, it’s impossible not to know this song and it gets real old, despite the catchiness. This cover is an amazing reinvention of the song, with gorgeous string and wind instrumentations and hauntingly intense vocals, it feels brand new. The video is a flurry of lights and flashes of images and helps intensify the feelings being evoked  in the new twist on this song. It’s a little eerie, but gorgeous and breathtaking to listen to. The instruments, plucking, quick, tremolo style strings, and even some saxophone, sway and airbrush their way through the song, as an underlying breath holding up the vocals. It is pretty remarkable and worth listen or three.
