In chronological order:

“STAR OF THE MOMENT” – Sam Gellaitry
Release Date – September 23

Sam Gellaitry kicks VF (Viewfinder) VOL II off with a bang. “STAR OF THE MOMENT” launches listeners into the spotlight, encouraging them to seize the moment. An electronic bassline blares along as Sam lofts in with evidently autotuned lyrics–a staple of the Scottish DJ/producer. This track is part startling, part genius, as it smacks listeners awake and charges them up to eleven. I’ll be spinning Viewfinder Vol. II for the foreseeable future.

“Magic Rising” – Tim Burgess
Release Date – September 23

The emerging sound of solo act Tim Burgess should be monitored closely, as I believe this previous chart topper from the UK is ready to launch. Tim Burgess formerly led The Charlatans on vocals but is now launching his own effort. The psychedelic notes are proud and prominent on this entire project, but command “Magic Rising.” I expect his listen count to rise from 30,000 monthly listeners (according to Spotify) to the millions in a few short weeks. You know I’ll be keeping an eye on this development.

“Boxcutter” – TOLEDO
Release Date – September 23

“Boxcutter” boasts a mellowed guitar-bassline duo that feels both effortless and enthusiastic, and this prevails throughout TOLEDO’s recent release. The duo of Dan and Jordan capture the sound of an incredibly scenic drive with their latest album How It Ends. Nothing about this duo screams boisterous or invasive. This album is chock full of chiller hits to the umpteenth degree. Do yourself a favor–find your favorite sweater and watch the leaves fall from the trees to this wonder of a project.
