April’s Fresh Spring Sounds

I Want You by Marvin Gaye

Art by Ernie Barnes

Marvin Gaye is at his grooviest and most suave on his often overlooked 1976 record, I Want You. The title of this project perfectly reflects how frankly and unabashedly Gaye cuts to the point on this record; desire and love are the focus, and they fill each note he sings and each groove that surrounds his voice. Each song exhibits a mastery of soul and funk which in turn makes it impossible for you to not get up and dance and sway to this record.

 

Beats and Breaks from the Flower Patch by Kitty Craft

The flowers are starting to bloom, the sun is starting to break through dreary gray skies, and the days are finally starting to warm up. Kitty Craft’s bright and joyful take on 90s trip-hop perfectly soundtracks the fresh promise of spring. The next time you go admire the sunrise or go on a walk with friends make sure to soundtrack these spring adventures with the sweet soprano singing and the infectious drum beats that compose this album.

In just under thirty minutes, Quarteto Em Cy’s self titled record brings the lushness, color, and  wonder of Brazil to the listeners’ ears. These four sisters carefully layer their voices on top of one another to create sweet harmony which is complimented by vibrant acoustic guitars and playful traditional percussion. With tracks like “Tudo Que Voce Podia Ser” and “Zanga, Zangada,” this album perfectly encapsulates the joy of bossa nova which anyone could benefit from.
