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.
Hometown - Jen Miller
Nashville singer/songwriter Jen Miller returns to DSD today (having made her first appearance back in March with "My Type") with her latest single (literally released a week ago today) "Hometown".
Check out the track below:
"Hometown" feels like another evolution in Miller's genre-blending style as she has further refined her sound into something that now feels more full-bodied and rounded. She has taken elements of soul, R&B, gospel, EDM, and indie folk and smushed them all-together into a track that feels like an artist who is now getting comfortable with what she wants to do, and is starting to excel at it; "Hometown" should be this indie artists coming out party...it literally gets better every time I listen to it, and as per usual with Miller, her vocals are the glue that holds everything together.
Miller has been releasing a single a month for most of this year, and honestly, I could probably have included them in each time, so if you enjoy "Hometown", you really should wander back and pick up the rest of her singles, as they are all quite good, but in hearing them, you'll really get to appreciate the culmination of what Miller has been working on (that is "Hometown").
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!
The Guys From do not hold the rights to any "Daily Song Drop" songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new and different music that we are enjoying, or re-expose them to artists they may have forgotten about.
Above the description of the song will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website, so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.
