Columbia Nights – In All Things

Washington DC trio Columbia Nights first caught my attention back in 2012 with their debut EP Dawn | Dusk. Since then they’ve released a bunch of quality singles that have kept me craving more and hoping for a full-length album. And now finally my wish has come true with the release of In All Things through Record Breakin’ Music.

The 10-track LP is packed with the lush and soulful sound that made me fall in love with these guys in the first place. A mix of stellar production, funky bass lines, a host of quality vocalists, attention to detail, and a whole lot of passion has resulted in a really well-crafted album that is well worth checking out. You can do exactly that right here.

Columbia Nights – All In

Columbia Nights found inspiration from a couple of musical greats to come up with their latest track. Here’s what they had to say about it:

ÔÇťAmong the LPs that grace our turntables, Herbie Hancock’s Head Hunters and Flying Lotus’ Until the Quiet Comes stay in heavy rotation. Recognizing common threads across two incredible records released almost forty years apart, we asked ourselves an interesting question: What if Herbie and the Head Hunters covered the work of FlyLo and his partner Thundercat? We’ve revisited this challenge on and off while developing our new sounds.”

If you like the sound of this, make sure you grab a free download here. Keep an ear out for Dawn | Dusk: The Remixes dropping June 17 too.

Vicelounge – Love Music

Vicelounge is a production duo consisting of musicians Tai Allen and Jonn Nubian and together they have just released a new album called Love Music on Record Breakin’ Music. I’m still trying to take in this original sounding mix of soul, electro, spoken word and even house. I suggest you take a listen for yourself and for a mere $1 for the whole album, why wouldn’t you? Get it here.

Columbia Nights – Dawn | Dusk

About a month ago the duo of Hayling Price and John E Daise, collectively known as Columbia Nights dropped this nice little EP Dawn | Dusk on Record Breakin’ Music. The charming and cohesive EP features vocalist Sarai Abdul-Malik on four of the seven tracks and plays well from start to finish. You can stream and buy the whole thing on Bandcamp. For now take a listen to the song The Firmament and as a little bonus you can also peep the video for As You Are.
