Video: Chef the Chef – Friends

A few months without blogging, me and TC started making music, and it’s time to return to the press.  Forget the page views, word counts, conjectures, features, and think pieces.  The Up-Turn was started by two friends who became friends because of music and who made a lot more friends because of music.  Sometimes it just takes a song or …

Video: Nelson – Grey

Nelson is a rapper hailing from UK that reminds me of a young Rejjie Snow in more ways than just their similar accents.  “Grey” is the kind of rainy-day weed-gazing meditation that Rejjie, Tay Devenny and DJJD SPORTS have been making for a while now.  Over a jazzy and subdued beat, Nelson expounds upon his future as well as the …

I’m on the verge of sleep right now and this is basically exactly what I want to be listening to.  “Softmoon verse” is a dreamy, jazzy piece of r&b infused hip-hop (or hip-hop infused r&b… it’s really getting hard to tell sometimes these days) that will happily soundtrack your mid-afternoon daydreams.  I don’t know that much about any of the …

Video: Houses and Homes – South Carolina

I guess I’ve been listening to too much music from the emo/acoustic/lo-fi revival because I completely forgot that acoustic music could be summery.  Also, it’s snowing outside so this song melted my cold-hipster-blogger-iced-out heart.  Nah, for real though “South Carolina” is a bright jam from Houses and Homes that is pretty hard not to enjoy.  It’s catchy, it’s got male …

Video: Half Loon – Swearword

I have a concussion right now so I’m not supposed to be on a computer let alone writing on a computer about a music video I watched and listened to on a computer.  Srsly don’t tell Dr. Heinke lol.  Although my world is kinda spinning and I am squinting at my screen I’m pretty sure that this is a chill …
