Bloodshot - Albin Lee Meldau
Swedish Singer/Songwriter Albin Lee Meldau returns to the Daily Song Drop today (first featuring back in May 2016) with the title song off of his new EP Bloodshot.
Check out "Bloodshot" below:
Once again, Meldau has delivered a soulful, emotional song with "Bloodshot" that features not only has excellent vocals, but builds into something rather cinematic in scope. This is a song that swept into my head and burrowed its' way in, becoming a regular feature of any late-night playlists I am putting together. There's an effortless chic to "Bloodshot"; I don't know if it's thanks to the classic-soul feeling vocals, the addition of horns, or just the whole, James Bond theme-style package, but "Bloodshot" is just one of those songs that I knew was going to be on the Daily Song Drop as soon as I heard it.
If you dig "Bloodshot" do check out the rest of the Bloodshot EP, for even more, moving, soulful tracks, or even wander back to some of his earlier EPs for even more--this is an artist who has never put a wrong foot forward as he has developed his sound, and lounge/soul fans really owe it to themselves to dive in.
Here's the July 2017 DSD Playlist! We're missing a few tracks this month, which is sad for the Apple Music folks, but you've still got a really solid list this month (if I do say so myself, which I do...*cough*)
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the July '17 Spotify List (which features 1 more track than the Apple Music list) OR, here's the whole playlist for July right here:
Not to mention the fact that we totally also have a June '17 Spotify List
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
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 Apple Music 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!
