Noah McBeth, aka Los Angeles based musical visionary NoMBe, continues to break new ground and captivate his growing droves of devout fans with a fresh new entry into his collection of outstanding releases. And this time around, he’s not doing it solo, either. Floridian chanteuse Geneva White joins in on mellow strolling, hazy seductive Eden, a dreamy strumming, droopy psychedelic serving of NoMBe’s unpredictable and always inebriating electro-soul. Noah and Geneva croon “we’re far from Eden” in smoky harmony on the gauzy sauntering tune, but I’m pretty sure I’m already in Eden as I lose myself to the seductive gem, which will be on NoMBe’s much anticipated debut album They Might’ve Even Loved Me, arriving January via TH3RD Brain Records. 

He says of the track: “Eden is one of the more complex songs on the album lyrically and a lot about the inner dialogues I’ve had in recent years.. In it, Love is personified and addressed as a character from my past. It deals with wanting to come back to love after having lost faith in it, but in the process also realizing that the flaws within ourselves and our partners are what makes it real. ’…Love, we’re far from Eden, but I like it […] there’s room to grow’. Furthermore, it can be taken as a conversation with god about having lost spiritual faith and also wanting to come back to it. There’s a lot of obvious religious referencing throughout the song which can be taken in many ways, but I just loved how it all interacted and shouldn’t be taken as a literal statement about my faith.” You can also stream the song via Spotify, here.

Geneva White is off to a great start as an emerging chanteuse, having unloaded two stellar tunes since her debut just over a month ago after having graced us with her voice on Slaptop’s Another Life earlier this year. The Floridian talent is obviously dead set on knocking our socks off with her rich soulful voice as she continues her momentum with new single So Good To You, a honeyed lilting, smoky simmering pop ballad with bluesy guitars and a vintage veneer. So Good To You is so good for our ears. It smolders with some of Bishop Brigg’s fire and the classy sophistication of Meg Mac. So Good To You is our latest taste from Geneva White’s forthcoming debut EP, Surface, due out October 13th. Revisit her prior singles on Soundcloud, here

Floridian native Geneva White has only two singles under her belt since she made her debut with Dreamcatcher quite recently, but we’re also familiar with her voice from San Francisco producer Slaptop’s Another Life earlier this year. The singer songwriter and guitarist is no stranger to the music scene, having attended the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music and launched her career upon graduation. She even fronted the band Kan Wakan for awhile and opened for heavy weights like Royal Blood and Arctic Monkeys in the process. Surface is her most recent offering, a percussive rumbling, deeply evocative pop aria that feels both raw and smooth, as well as simultaneously sensual and bold. Her silky smooth voice certainly drives those effects. Surface is the title track from a debut EP arriving October 13th. Get blown away by her voice on debut single Dreamcatcher below, which is heavy on the simmering late night R&B pop & effervescent electronica vibes.

Long time IHM local production favorite, San Francisco’s Slaptop, is slowly unveiling treats to build up to the release of his debut album, With You, on March 3rd. It’s obvious from what we’ve heard so far that With You is going to be a can’t miss versatile display of Slaptop’s dance inducing skills. On new preview Another Life, he entrances us with deep booming house then enchants us with melodic R&B pop courtesy of husky voiced siren, Geneva White. Slaptop has always walked a fine line between musical genres with his electronic concoctions. Another Life is no different. It’s both a throwback to the 90′s and a future styled piano house anthem. Re-visit Slaptop’s prior songs revealed from his forthcoming album by heading over to Soundcloud, here.
