get in and close the door

Recently, I've been really nostalgic for the life i lived formerly. I used to be very NEO-SOUL....(angie remembers my Common Knit hats and scarfs lol). I would like try to go to Black Lily and loved Jazzyfatnastees and the whole shabang. But over the years, glamorized and overrated "pop" came into me and I started to like what the masses love.

Over the past month, I've been getting back into my NeO-Soul roots. I've been listening to Van Hunt alot and getting in with Amel Larrieux. Van Hunt's self titled debut remains a classic for me. I remember the days of listening to "Dust" and "Hold My Hand" in complete awe and Amel Larrieux has always been one of the puriest voices I've ever heard.

Van Hunt's cd Popular is out as well as Amel Larriex's Lovely Standards. I highly recommend these both.

Long Live Soul

Some of my fave Van Hunt songs:
Down Here in Hell

We Could Be
