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.
Stop It - Sleeping Lion
LA-based electronic duo Sleeping Lion (Nate Flaks & Noah Longworth McGuire) released "Stop It" as a single earlier this year, and it is just the right kind of chill track for an early-autumn evening.
Check out the track below:
"Stop It" is the best kind of late-night electronic: it has an excellent vocal track, it's mixed beautifully, and it never falls into the trap of becoming repetitive and dull. This is one of those songs that takes you down a path--you actually feel movement in the song, which tells me that this would be an excellent addition to anyone's late-night driving playlists, or a great way to wrap up a great night out, watching the city lights go by.
I mean, "Stop It" is one of those rare electronic track that I actually even find myself singing along to...that does not happen.
If you are looking to get a bit more Sleeping Lion into your day, earlier this month they released an excellent remix of VALNTN & Emilia Ali's "Can't Let Go (Sleeping Lion Remix)", and be sure to keep an eye out for more of their releases (or I guess, on the DSD, as I know I'm going to be keeping an eye out).
This month we are only missing one (1) track, from AL-X the Great, as it is not available...anywhere other than where I put it in here, but it is tradition that we are missing something every month.
ICYMI (somehow) here are the July 2017 DSD Playlist, June 2017 DSD Playlist, May 2017 DSD Playlist DSD Playlist - Apr 17, DSD Playlist - Mar 17 , and there's also one kicking around for DSD Playlist - Feb 17 too!
We are also now on Spotify! Here is the link to the August '17 Spotify List OR, here's the whole playlist for the month 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
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:
See you again next week!
