Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Miss Me Too - Fred Page
London based singer/songwriter Fred Page's latest single "Miss Me Too" is a song that feels familiar (but, as it was released earlier this month, clearly should not...).
Check out the track below:
I cannot quite put my finger on what it is when it comes to why "Miss Me Too" feels so familiar; I think it's the fact that it takes some of that mid-to-late 1990s alternative sound, and then updates it with a more modern scale--this is one of those indie songs that feels like it is tailor-made for a film soundtrack.
Listen to "Miss Me Too" again (if you are already done it), close your eyes, and tell me that you don't get a sense of this being from a rom-com, or like, comedy film in the part of the film where characters are "thinking about things".
I don't want you to think that that is a bad thing by any means, Page has created a song in "Miss Me Too" that is perfectly produced, features his vocals by letting them pop out of the retro-feeling music behind them, and the song subtly adds little hints of strings, and harmony to keep it dynamic, while never over-complicated the sound. It's an indie alt singer/songwriter delivering a complete song in every sense of the word.
If you dig this, I definitely recommend checking out some of his other work, especially "Another Last Time", which, I feel I must have had as a note for DSD in the past, but can't seem to find (it's also damn good).
Here's the June 2017 DSD Playlist! We're only missing one track this month (as is tradition)! This months list was actually one of the harder ones for me to put together into something that feels (at least sort of) cohesive...I'm not sure why, but I am happy with the way it turned out in the end!
Well. I've heard you, and here it is: theguysfrom playlists are now available on Spotify! You can find us by looking for theguysfrom on Spotify, click on this link for the June '17 Spotify List OR, here's the whole playlist for June right here:
If you're looking for me to add these lists somewhere beyond Apple Music and Spotify (or you want some of the old lists on Spotify), you're going to have to convince me (hard) by chatting with me here, or on Twitter (linked below)
If you're looking for more great music, are late to the party, or just want more theguysfrom.com in your day, here are the playlists for:
There are other (earlier) playlists available for you if you check older "Tuesday Tunes" articles, or search on Apple Music itself.
See you again next week!
