I can admit it, a lot of the shit I post here tends to be “feel bad music” in one way or another. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to get down with a feel good jam now and then. The Summer season just happens to be the perfect time for upbeat, dare I say, dance floor friendly sounds. And since Summer is officially in full swing here in New England (despite what your calendar might say…it’s like 100 degrees here in Springfield, Massachusetts right now) I’m proud to present the first funky, feel good Summer jam of the year, Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s “Hunnybee”!
Sure, the lyrics are a little bittersweet, but this bass driven Disco-fied drop from the New Zealand lo-fi Psyche-Pop outfit is the song I want to hear rocking bar patios, backyard barbecues, and house parties now that the weather is warm. It’s a fucking groove! In case you didn’t know, it’s the newest single from their recently released internationally recorded fourth LP ‘Sex & Food’, which is out now on the Jagjaguwar label. The Greg Sharp animated video is also super chill and cute AF.
