http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Courtship-Ritual-Pith-560x292-300x250.jpg

Like 84,283 other groups Courtship Ritual is an Brooklyn based indie rock band, however unlike 99% of them they don’t suck. Made up of Monica Salazar (Vox, loops) and Jared Olmstead(guitar bass loops) they may make ‘indie rock’ but don’t fall for many of the trops that many of the bands with that label feel [...]

MUSIC: Lykke Li – Gunshot

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/lykke-300x250.jpg

From her pretty great album I Never Learn is Lykke Li‘s new song, “Gunshot”. The song, like the rest of the songs of the album, is themed around a breakup. And Lykke Li in the video looks morose singing, “Can I get you Back”. However, the video looks like it takes place in a post [...]

MUSIC: The Distortion of Sound

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/snoop-300x250.jpg

Howdy Couchsession’s family! Here’s a music post that’s a little deeper then what we usually post, but considering how many of you are creative types always trying to look deeper I figure id give you some nourishing vegetables to chew on in addition to the pieces of candy we drop on the daily. Years ago [...]

MUSIC: SZA – Julia

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/SZA-JULIA1-300x250.jpg

TDE songstress SZA returns with her latest single, Julia. Julia’s a bit more upbeat then some of SZA’s other tracks. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a smokey smoldering track just by her vocals alone. But there’s a nice 80′s pop synth tinge to the beat, and it adds a little more range to SZA’s [...]

MUSIC: Mobb Deep – Shark (Prod. Alchemist)

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/mobb-deep-alchemist-2-300x250.jpg

While their glory years are way behind them, there’s no reason why Mobb Deep can’t still be good. Prodigy’s rap persona has settled nicely into that of a grizzled veteran who treats violence and death with an shrug and still drops good to great solo albums. Havoc hasn’t improved over the years, but he hasn’t [...]
