Ottolenghi – [Loyle Carner] ft. [Jordan Rakei]

By Seamus Fay // 16 Oct 2018

UK artist Loyle Carner is as pure as it gets, and the insurmountable forces of talent, passion, and emotion on his latest release, “Ottolenghi”, proves this to an emphatic extent. Backed by a smooth instrumental that bleeds soul, this song represents a moment of inner peace and introspection. This subject matter calls for a relaxed sonic atmosphere that only encourages deep thought and dense lyricism, presented in a remarkably light way that only makes the listener love Carner more than they already do. His rhymes are masterful and wise, and the casual, almost homely scenery of the train acts as a perfect background to this. As Carner embarks on a journey unknown, he blesses us with one of the best releases in his catalog to date, topped off by a gorgeous hook from Jordan Rakei. “Ottolenghi” hits the heart, so check it out below and look for Loyle Carner on tour at his 2019 shows here!

03 – [Advisry]

By Seamus Fay // 16 Oct 2018

In my time writing for Lyrical Lemonade, I’ve noticed that the music I hold closest is the music that is able to paint a vivid picture. Whether this picture depicts an emotion, an event, or something else, it’s comforting to be able to translate sound into a scene in your head, and such is the case with all 3 songs on Advisry Radio’s latest release, 03. Putting together a trio of songs written and performed by Jonathan Richetts, Glen the Saiyan, Keith Herron, and Brandon Collins, this offering develops a world of sound by using off-the-beaten-path sonic direction and unapologetically true-to-self lyricism and instrumentation. Each of the four rising talents presents themselves in a light of proud individuality and eccentricity, and in this way, 03 comes across as a gorgeous pack of music in all of its synth-led, sun-soaked glory. This is a must-listen release for anyone trying to expand their palette of musical interests, so be sure to check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!
