Steve Lacy – Steve Lacy’s Demo
From the guitarist for The Internet comes an incredible 6-song collection of indie R&B and soul. The album features stringy guitar chords and riffs over rock-heavy grooving basslines. Steve Lacy’s smooth and relaxed vocals are as catchy as anything and layer beautifully. I’ve had this album practically on repeat since its release; its brief length and addictive hooks make it all too easy to keep hitting play. Produced entirely on his iPhone, Steve Lacy’s debut release comes at a time when he’s already a credible producer. He already has a Grammy nomination under his belt for his production work on The Internet’s Ego Death, and he even produced a track on Kendrick Lamar’s new LP.
