To be honest, I really gave up on new music for a while. Although The Couch Sessions has become a pioneer in finding and discovering new talent, it seems like acts who are coming out these days lack the freshness and originality of the people before them.

However, a visit to our SoundCloud page has gotten me interested in music again. The tracks that have filled my headphones for the past couple of days have been downright amazing.

Take Southern California’s Breezy Love Joy. Influenced by everything from soul to funk to hip-hop, Breezy has created tracks that combine jazzy vocals with some futuristic beats. Take his brilliant interpretation of Coldplay, aka The Coldtapes. Led by the marvelous rework of their track “Trouble,” to the bluesy “God Put A Smile On Your Face,” to the catchy take on “X&Y,” this project is hands down the best thing I’ve listened to all year.

The Couch Sessions is putting a firm co-sign on this. Download it NOW!
