February 2024 Singles 1: We’re Back (Again)

Last updated on February 23, 2024

So, it’s been a wild ride over here at Independent Clauses HQ for the last few months, and not a lot has gotten done as a result of it. Instead of doing semi-monthly posts of 10-15 songs, I’m going to be doing mini-posts of 3-7 songs to make the work fit better with the new life arrangements. Without further adieu:

  1. Make It Work” – Heavee. A stuttering, pulsing, high-energy track that builds the concepts of footwork. The careful development turn the rhythmically-driven track from a straightforward set for dance into an expansive, wide-canvas approach that incorporates jazz and ambient vibes. Great stuff. Highly recommended.
  2. In the Sun” – MAETAR. A jubilant, trumpet-centric blast of sunshine-dappled jazz. Guaranteed to put good vibes in the room and a smile on your face.
  3. Aotearoa” – Frolin & Magnus. A calming, charming composition that melds gentle keys and subtly insistent percussion to beautiful effect.
  4. Elleipsis” – Umbra & the Volcan Siege. A comforting, encouraging instrumental composition that sounds like a fully fleshed out Lullatone or a calmed down DeVotchKa. Highly recommended.
  5. Daedalus Requiem” – Erik Lankin. Requiems and elegies are always sad (outside of New Orleans), but this one maintains the light of hope through its elegant arrangement.
