Who knew that Australia would be picking up the heat lead on R&B trends? Among the rising voices is the sound that come out of Melbournite Oscar Vincente Slorach-Thorn’s mouth. This shit is city slick and sultry shine.
Best thing? You can get this on wax from my buds, innovative music-food blog TurntableKitchen. Matthew Hickey tells me:
We got this subscription service thingy where we send people music on colorful pieces of round vinyl that are 7” in diameter (sorta like your Small Plates but with a subscription service angle). Our latest featured artist is Oscar Key Sung (also part of Australia’s Oscar + Martin). He makes indie R&B music that made me weak in the knees when I first hear it. I thought you might enjoy it too. We’ll be releasing the “All I Think About (Part 1)” single on hand-numbered, limited to 375 copies smoky clear and black vinyl in about a week.
