You Promised – [Lexi]

By Elliot Montanez // 23 Sep 2019

Lexi is a Chicagoan who we have been familiar with for the past few years, and although she hasn’t released music too often over the years, I myself have been patiently waiting for her new material, and today she is back with her brand new release titled “You Promised”. When I first pressed play on this new joint it didn’t take long for me to find a liking to the melody she provided, she displayed some unbelievable vocal skills and simply created an all-around pleasing record. It’s great to see Lexi finally starting to release more music, and something tells me that this isn’t the last time we will hear from her before the years over, so stream this new release below and if you enjoy it then follow her on Soundcloud to keep up with her movement.

BL00D – [Reagan Capaci] x [Vino]

By Nick Mueller // 23 Sep 2019

Another brand new face to our pages today, singer/songwriter and rising artist Reagan Capaci drops off her new spectacular single titled “BL00D”. The energetic, pop-infused record caught my attention during the first listen as Reagan’s voice is unlike anything I’ve ever heard before. It’s not something I can explain in depth, for you’ll have to listen on your own to truly experience it. When I reached out to Capaci regarding this track, she explained that this song “has a deeper meaning than it would appear off of the first listen. I wrote this song through the eyes of a friend that grew up in the foster care system.” She then went on to explain that “their mom and dad both left at the beginning stages of their life and that it’s very hard to keep moving forward when the two people who gave you life want nothing to do with you anymore.” Furthermore, Capaci called on Vino to lay down a verse in which depicts different feelings expressed through a similar situation that he has personally faced. “BL00D” is the first song off of Reagan’s EP that is scheduled to drop sometime in October, so there will be plenty more …

Waterfall – [She’Chinah]

By Chuck Ramos // 23 Sep 2019

An artists ability to tap into an array of musical stylings is impressive in its own right but for the same artist to also be able to tap into era’s and moments is something else entirely. This lengthy yet necessarily needed description applies to She’Chinah’s new single, “Waterfall.” Making her debut on the site, She’Chinah is a Memphis-based artist with a limited discography that speaks volumes to her talent and promise. She’Chinah’s new single, “Waterfall,” is a body-stirring 90’s house concoction that wastes no time in establishing its rhythm. Listeners are first embraced by this song’s pulsating production and She’Chinah’s electrically-singed vocals. Serenading with a stream of conscious-like flow, She’Chinah allows her innermost thoughts to be placed on full display. It’s hard to not get lost in the 90’s aesthetic created by this booming record that helps paint a vivid picture of the life and times of house music’s dominance. Whether your reveling in this record’s beautifully crafted nostalgia-triggering production or its honest lyricism, you’re guaranteed an enjoyable experience from the moment you press play. The talented and quickly rising artist shared the below about her latest single. “I’ve had many moments of deep thought over the last year, and I’m …

It’s Victor’s Internet–we’re just living in it.

By Mike del Ro // 23 Sep 2019

When I met Victor for the first time, the then 17-year-old musician and I had arranged to link up at a coffee shop in Wicker Park to record an interview. Huddled in the corner of the crowded room on a snowy afternoon, I asked the up-and-coming artist, whose track “Tinder Song” I’d just discovered a month prior, about the artists that had been inspiring him most lately. At the time, he’d mentioned names like Jasper Bones, Banes World, and Cuco. I remind him of that day now as we’re sitting in the chilly lobby of the Lyrical Lemonade office in the middle of summer in Chicago. He’d just gotten off the road opening for Cuco’s headlining tour, a full-circle moment that even Victor has trouble summing up in words. His new project, simply titled ‘Victor’s Debut’, seeks to take the experiences he’s had over this time period and sum them up in song form. The breadth of his music has grown along with him–a quality that comes through in the carefully arranged tracklisting of ‘Victor’s Debut’. While the first half presents more of the dreamy, emotional side that Victor’s music has explored deeply in the past, the second half undergoes …
