We’ll be remembered as the ones who couldn’t hold it down, who couldn't fight back for it.
We got carried away.
All the love that I was blind to, and I made my mistakes and I laid them all beside you.
Can we bring back that miracle love? 🎞️
Exceedingly tough year but managed to get it done early. Probably the first year rnb/hip hop has featured so heavily in my 10 but these albums are 💯🔥 Special shout out to the late @macmiller

CoutCam Friday Improv. Well, not really an improv but more of a freeball-try at Matt Corby's amazing new "Miracle Love."
I know I haven't posted in a few months, but the last few weeks have been really crazy! I got to do a bit of travelling for work, and have been learning new things, but I have been creating playlists less and less.
Due to my mood of late, my song choices reflect that. This playlist has some new artists such as Matt Corby (due to the hype of his album release, i gave it a chance and was quite impressed), and some older tunes, with some KWAYE, James Vincent McMorrow and James Blake (you can clearly see the direction this playlist is going in).

“Rainbow Valley” by Matt Corby
So I went into this album expecting I would absolutely despise this album because for the longest time I’ve put Corby in a box of boring Australian vocalists who do that moany stuff. I think I hated Matt Corby more than the others though because he sold that image of sensitive surfer boy and that was a big threat to the sensitive skater boys who I ideologically sided with in the board wars. Despite all this going against him Corby pulled through an album where he was conveying a range of personality through his vocals and allowing his tracks to progress through many a beautifully arranged section. Corby employs back up singers to glorious, even with gospel parallels, pianos and some subtly funky bass sections. There are some fucking transcendent moments lemme tell you what. That key change on “All Fall” is SWEET and “Miracle Love” works really well as an ‘epic’ with some tremendously loud piano playing. The production is ethereal and gorgeous throughout and it lends to a relaxed listening environment. Corby’s vocals can get awkward because he’s trying so hard to be gnarly and pronounced amidst this very pleasant instrumentation. Additionally some tracks can be quite quickly tied to a strong influence by Kevin Parker, which can get a bit distracting.
