Steady, endless trickles of links to enjoyably laid-back Soundcloud streams of gentle house music are fine in my book.
If I ever get bored, I just imagine it is 2007 all over again, with a steady stream was of emails containing huge mp3s of third-rate Landfill Indie impostors, and suddenly all seems hunky-dory again.
Today, it’s Buhay’s turn to sooth my ears. “Buhay” may or may not be pronounced “Boo-high”, though I can also imagine legitimately saying it as “Buoy”, “Boo-hay”, or, let’s face it, “artichoke”. It’s just about as feasible as the others.
Snide comments on the artist’s name aside, Hallelujah undoubtedly is a minor thrill… heavy, swampy and dense; but light, drifting and delicate: everything you’d expect and hope for from a new, savvy musician right now.
Buhay recommends that Hallelujah is listened to “with headphones or a giant subwoofer.” A smart move, I concluded, as I happily allowed the song to wash all over me.
