Just a few short features ago, we were sharing an immense song from Molly Moore entitled Catch and Release and gushing over its jazzy soulful R&B pop. Now, let’s turn to her beau, progressive soul swooner Brandyn Burnette and his new single, out on esteemed French label Kitsuné. The St. Louis transplant leaves our hearts aflutter with his every smooth and buttery vocals on the resplendent future R&B groover, the first track from Brandyn Burnette’s long awaited debut album which reportedly is on its way soon. Lavish flickering, swanky glimmering Layup showcases some of Brandyn’s best vocals yet. Grab the single, here.

I’m still a little crestfallen that PRXZM has re-located to Los Angeles. It’s a story much too familiar and rampant, since everyone seems to like to make their way out to either Brooklyn or Los Angeles once the world picks up on their talent, but I still love to boast when an up-and-coming artist or band resides right here in my beloved Bay. Let’s take a moment to dissolve into the electronic duo’s second single from their forthcoming Come Alive EP, a slow burning, trap & bass infused electronica/electro-R&B track named Tell Me Something New, richly adorned with dark prowling beats and sultry vocals. PRXZM captures the restless feeling of being obsessed with a new paramour on the track, letting that immensely overwhelming experience materialize with tactile magnificence. Stream/download the voluptuous single, burning guitars and all, here.

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Sara Diamond has more than befriended my ears and enraptured my heart with sultry smoldering Fool, produced by Brody Gillman. The Canadian starlet woos us with her husky soulful voice on the discontent heartbreak ballad, a potent and grandiose outpouring of plush R&B and opulent electro-pop. Jessie Reyez’ fiery embers, Léon’s smoky deep vocals, and BANKS’ dark seduction unite on the moody gripping single, available via iTunes, here

19 year old Danish wunderkind Maximillian continues to drum up endless praise and growing adoration with the artist’s creamy melting, moody simmering music on new single Hollow Days. The great Dane hit the scene last year with songs like Higher, Feelings, and Strangers to great success. Maximillian exudes vulnerability and honesty on the latest addition to his growing catalog of sensual haunting R&B pop songs, so heavily drenched in atmospheric smoldering electronica. His velvety crooning and a striking melodic turn on the track melts us to the core, keeping us warm through the cool foggy days of spring that seem to stretch on forever here in San Francisco. How can there be any “hollow days” when we’re accompanied by Maximillian? Hollow Days can also be streamed on Spotify, here.

Three weeks have flown by since Couros alighted back on our radar with a song named Young. Though we’re still stuck on that scintillating effusion of electronica and R&B, we find ourselves thoroughly consumed by the London-based producer’s magnificent new song Undertone. His production is flawless on the lustrous swooning track, which features rich summer melodies and silky chord patterns. Wistful yet euphoric, Undertone swirls and swells with tactile warmth. Golden luscious Undertone is nothing short of spectacular, a bedazzling display of lavish electronica and sensuous R&B pop. Plus, singer songwriter Alyss’ sultry sleek crooning is outstanding. Undertone is taken from Couros’ upcoming 5-track EP on PMR Records.

Easton Schirra is a Texas-born, Los Angeles-based singer songwriter who’s floored us with his exceptional voice on his phenomenal first single. The multi-talented artist has explored his creative tendencies through various mediums in the past. He’s even garnered success shooting the likes of Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Charli XCX, and Issa Rae as an accomplished photographer. But he soon found his musical passion when he started toying with songwriting while living in New York City, and we’re all the more grateful and fortunate for it. A love for Earth, Wind & Fire as well as an upbringing in jazz choir, coupled with his passion for contemporary R&B and new wave ambient tracks, has resulted in Blue Love, a truly intoxicating electro R&B track about drowning in love and the swell of emotions that ensues. We hold our breaths with Easton as we sink into this roiling, undulating ocean, an intertwining network of sleek falsettos, glassy warbling synths, and deep rumbling beats. Blue Love overwhelms our senses, reminding us of our own obsessions and how easy it is to spiral into the unknown when gripped in the unmerciful talons of love.

I’m not sure how you’re supposed to pronounce rx Soul’s name, but the “rx” in the moniker tends to remind me of pharmacy prescriptions. Perhaps that’s what the LA based artist was going for… prescription soul, or aural balm the heart needs to get over the anguish of heartbreak and longing. rx Soul first offered up such an elixir when he made their debut with All The Way There earlier this year. And now the blooming talent is back with his fourth single, Pilldreams, a stunnin collaboration with hip hop artist INDICA. Pilldreams’ nebulous atmosphere and slow simmering R&B soul is punctuated with swanky guitar curls. It’s a woozy swooning sonic medication that seemingly alternates between The Weeknd’s dark sensual R&B and Opia’s torrid simmering R&B funk, all shrouded in a sea of thick purling haze. rx Soul states of the track: “I wrote this song for all the times I’ve found myself tempted to "take a pill” to solve a problem instead of investigating and addressing the root of the issue. Self-medication can mean a lot of different things for me, and whatever shape it comes in it can be hard to recognize, much less fight off. Pilldreams is just two sides of that same fight.“ Pilldreams can also be streamed via Spotify, here.

Every time a new Maths Time Joy track surfaces, I know we’re in for quite the spectacular sonic experience. The Grammy-nominated UK producer & songwriter always links up with superb vocalists on his singles. Misunderstood is no different. Los Angeles neo-soul songstress Asal Hazel joins the producer on the track, intertwining her chiffon voice with his buttery crooning. Their vocals dance seductively over Maths Time Joy’s gooey ravishing bed of dreamy synths and slow burning funk guitar. Misunderstood is the latest track to be released off Maths Time Joy’s Sunset Motel EP. Stream prior releases on Soundcloud, here.

There’s nothing hard about loving Drew and her new single Hard To Love. In fact, we’ve fell head over heels for the song the moment her robustly potent, deep sonorous voice hit our ears in its opening bars. The Danish-Welsh siren delivers a fiery punch with the dynamic track, which melds stringy strums with dark sinuous electronic production. Drew, formerly one half of DrewXHILL, graced IHM with her solo debut over two years ago before disappearing for quite some time. But it feels like she’s here to stay this time around as she scintillates us with her R&B pop on heavy hitting Hard To Love. At least, we sure hope so.

At first glance, the title of Weslee’s new single might be mistaken as “sweet dreams”, but this dream of a tune from the British duo is steamy and hot, with a fierce and foxy strut. Sweat Dreams is a future funk meets R&B pop jam brimming with sultry vibes and hip-swaying beats. It’s a must for fans of Nao and AlunaGeorge’s dance-inducing electro and torrid sizzling R&B soul.
