Chris Fields: ‘Dreams Are Forever’

chrisfieldsRapper and producer Chris Fields has released his brand new full-length, Dreams Are Forever, a 12-track tour-de-force that follows a series of singles released over the last year or so. While those singles were initially expected to be part of the final album, Fields output since he started recording near the end of 2014 has been such that Dreams Are Forever is primarily fresh material. “Crown,” which we wrote about when it dropped back in September 2015, is the familiar track, and still dominates with its confidence and snaking melodies. Fields contrasts a track like that one, which he characterizes as full of bravado, with others that allow more vulnerability, like “Visionary,” “Therapy,” and the title track. He sees this as part of the natural progression into adulthood, and as an artist, he says, “I’m just really letting people into my mind – what I think of and go through as a man.” Dreams Are Forever is a record of that progression.

No tour dates have been announced yet, but you can listen to the full album below. Follow @CdotFields.

Heartbreak Is Contagious


California singer-songwriter Kris Angelis has been up on our charts with her song, “Rust,” and while we love that one, it’s a few years old now. So we were excited to hear that she’s got a new single called “Heartbreak Is Contagious” out now. And what’s more… it’s a great song. A pretty spare, acoustic arrangement, but cleverly produced, and perfectly fitting for the song. Available on Spotify and iTunes.

This Is “War”

se'vonSe’von has achieved next level status over the last couple of years, and he just keeps bringing it. His latest track, “War,” created with B Sims and The Coalition, is a classic, foreboding, head-nodding beat with a killer hook. Se’von owns this one, spitting with the intensity of a man truly preparing for war. Don’t sleep on Se’von Legend. Full version available at iTunes.

Bent has teamed with lyrical powerhouse Mick Jenkins to bring us “Divine,” a hypnotic groove that meditates on a moment of perfection and self-actualization. “I’m in my zone right now / we up and we won’t come down.” Check it out below.

Biscuits & Gravy, ‘Young Love’

biscuitsBoston soul-funk kings Biscuits & Gravy, once selected by Ernie Ball as the winners of the pop edition of our “Save Your Strings” competition, have today dropped their second full length, Young Love. It features the single “Down With You,” a smooth, vocal and horn driven pop track that evokes prime-era Michael Jackson as well as Nile Rodgers‘…well, his whole career. The band successfully embraces that familiar ’70s-’80s hybrid, a vibe that connects the rest of the songs on the album. It’s a great time. More like this:
