Vol. 7 of my Watchout playlist series on TIDAL has arrived with new music from fresh faces from the eclectic pool of New York’s underground music community. Hear from the Queens born soulful songstress The Afr0dite, the head turning explosiveness of Sloppy Jane, and the creative, colorful, ukulele based pop from Jackie Mendoza. Atlanta gets some love here as well with a gorgeous track from the very talented duo known as Chloe x Halle. I had to finish this playlist with Will Toledo wishing Car Seat Headrest had Frank Ocean’s voice and James Brown’s stage presence. Happy listening!

Watchout Vol.6 on TIDAL has arrived with more New York underground greats and a few new tracks from some west coast rising stars such as The Regrettes and La Luz. Look out for the hypnotic synths on No Joy’s upcoming collaboration with Sonic Boom, the single life anthem from Miss Eaves, the powerful poetic jazz from Irreversible Entanglements, and the lively, but smooth rhythms of Water From Your Eyes. Do not sleep on the future of R&B, Ravyn Lanae, and a new one from Brooklyn’s loudest trio, A Place To Bury Strangers! Check out the playlist here!
Vol. 5 of my Watchout Playlist on TIDAL has arrived with more of New York’s underground from the likes of L’Rain, Caroline Rose, Revel In Dimes, Soccer Mommy, and arguably the best work yet from Long Island’s MJT.
