Billy Raffoul – International Hotel

Singer/songwriter Billy Raffoul shares a live performance video of the title track from his recently released full length album International Hotel. International Hotel takes its title from a bar in Raffoul’s home town of Leamington, Ontario. Raffoul filmed this live performance at the actual International Hotel Bar.

Mainly co-produced by Raffoul and his longtime collaborator Justin Zuccato, International Hotel was released last month on Interscope Records. American Songwriter said of the album “International Hotel is the kind of album that lingers long after its last notes fade, an incisive imprint that suggests an important new voice is here to stay.” After opening on the title track (a loving tribute to Raffoul’s father and his lifelong devotion to rock-and-roll), the album offers up a dozen more songs rooted in his sharply observed storytelling. With those songs encompassing everything from treasured family history to clear-eyed social commentary to a heartrending ballad of a comic-book hero on “The Ballad of James Howlett,” International Hotel closes out with “Massey Hall”: an homage to the venue of Raffoul’s dreams, a Toronto theater where Neil Young recorded Live at Massey Hall 1971.

And they’re back! Supergroup Spillage Village released new single “Baptize” late last night alongside the announcement that new album, Spilligion, on September 25th. “Baptize” is another taste of what fans and critics can come to expect from the album that has been teased since the release of “End of Daze.”
Continuing the sombre yet hopeful tone set with the first track, “Baptize” spotlights vocals from J.I.D and EARTHGANG; proving why they have come to be some of Atlanta’s most prized musical possessions. Christo, Hollywood JB and OLU of EARTHGANG produced the beat. Continuing the excitement, a video for the song dropped today featuring the three artists leading congregations in a Baptist church and one nestled in the woods — all while decked out in Pyer Moss. To watch the video, visit: https://youtu.be/Qcuk4LLRatk
The group composed of J.I.D, EarthGang, 6lack, Mereba, Jurdan Bryant, Hollywood JB and Benji. recorded Spilligion in Atlanta during (and largely as a solace for) the pandemic, and yet found the themes ringing true during a civil uprising that has continued to divide the country.

Spilligion is available for pre-order now, CLICK HERE, fans that do so will receive the new track as an instant grat.

About Spillage Village — 

Born out of block parties, college dorm rooms and late night house sessions, Spillage Village was founded by Atlanta duo EARTHGANG and rapper J.I.D and were then joined by producer Hollywood JB and artist Jurdan Bryant. The quintet self-released their first collaborative project, Bears Like This (2014) to a warm reception gathering a groundswell of support from peers. Soon after singer Mereba and rapper 6lack joined the group and released their second critically acclaimed effort, Bears Like This Too (2015) with press dubbing it “a definitive statement from one of Atlanta’s most musically vibrant posses” (VICE/Noisey).

Keeping it’s momentum, the following year Spillage Village made waves again with Bears Like This Too Much (2016). The EP would be a turning point for many of the artists in the group who’s solo careers began to take off,  6lack’s debuted his Free 6lack project (Interscope, 2016) and EARTHGANG and J.I.D signed to Dreamville Records (Interscope). OLU from EARTHGANG would say that the three “Bear” EPs acted like “checkpoints and markers in time” chronicling the rise of the musical mavericks. Almost four years later, with many a sold out international tours, Grammy nominations and personal projects, Spillage Village is back to deliver soul-serving music.

Still Woozy – BS

Still Woozy’s new single, “BS,” is another homespun and heartfelt song from the technicolor mind of singer/songwriter Sven Gamsky. Out today via Still Woozy Productions/ Interscope Records, the track is a surreal sliver of pop centered around delightfully dazed vocals.  “BS” is available now at all digital retailers.

Like many of Still Woozy songs “BS” dives into Gamsky’s psyche while also offering listeners a way out of their own worries. Yes, the lyrics are about “struggling with his brain,” as he puts it, but they’re ultimately about bringing the best version of oneself to the people we love. The lush instrumental underscores that hope, shining warmth and light through the clouds of darker impulses. That sort of contrast is exactly what makes Still Woozy special, and it’s been his aim ever since he started writing songs as a kid in Northern California’s Bay Area. “I strive for this feeling of warmth to act as a buffer to some of those harsher feelings,” he says.

“BS” is Still Woozy’s second single of 2020, arriving in the misty wake of April’s “Window,” another luxuriant cut tinged with longing. These followed Still Woozy’s 2019 debut EP, ​Lately, which introduced the world to his emotional yet textured tracks. Blending acoustic sounds with delirious dabs of electronics, the EP showed off Gamsky’s affection for deftly psychedelic arrangements ​— ​his songs melt and swirl like crayons on a sidewalk in the summer.

That lighthearted, uncanny feeling is often echoed in the visuals Gamsky pairs with his songs, a trend that continues on the forthcoming video for “BS,” in which, among other trippy images, Gamsky smashes a brain with a mallet while floating in the clouds. It’s laidback and Lynchian in equal measure, which suits the beautiful contrasts at the center of his music. Watch the video for “BS” HERE.

FXXXXY releases new single from upcoming project which was announced in 360 MAGAZINE.

FXXXXY Releases “Paranoia/#1 Stunna”

A week after releasing his double-feature of a track “Paranoia/#1 Stunna,” songwriter/producer FXXXXY (Rule#1/Interscope Records) agilely whips up a new visual to compliment his latest release. Watch HERE

Directed by Erik Rojas, the Dallas star ends up in a challenging position with an ill-tempered woman keen on vengeance. Draped in fear, FXXXXY looks out the window to monitor the situation, before realizing the unknown lady found her way inside his home and ends up firing her gun at him. Fortunately, FXXXXY wakes up from his daunting dream and recaptures his confidence on the swaggering tune “#1 Stunna.” FXXXXY dashes through the hypnotic beat like a fireball with a sense of renewed energy, flaunting his bachelor pad and his new car. 

In 2020, the highly-sought-after producer notched several monumental victories, including a platinum plaque Future’s latest album High Off Life. His previous wins also include his earlier collaborations with Gunna (“Need You”) and Lil Durk (“Follow Me”), which further exuded FXXXXY’s innate skillset as a musical virtuoso. After landing co-writing credits for Future’s “Life Is Good (Remix),” Internet Money’s “Thrusting” and Gunna’s “Street Sweeper,” FXXXXY’s gifted abilities on the music front are creating a frenzy in the hip-hop space, making him the genre’s best-kept secret.

You made this your own.” The series has been hugely popular, accumulating more than 7 million streams across all platforms and earning Amber over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
The ‘Covered-19’ series follows recent single ‘Generous’; a woozy, bumping bedroom jam laced with strings sampled from Henry Mancini’s ‘Lujon’. BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra playlist support and streamed the track more than 1 million times. In addition, Amber is also a face of Calvin Klein’s new spring campaign. ‘Generous’ comes hot on the heels of a stellar 2019 for Amber that saw her rack up over 100 million combined streams, play Pitchfork Festival and Governor’s Ball and have singles ‘Mixer’ and ‘What If’ playlisted at BBC 1Xtra, while ‘Mixer’ was named one of NPR’s Best Songs of 2019.
