Forgive me for such a delay in playlist-making. Here is a small bite of what’s been hiding in my inbox for the last few months.

Toronto psychedelic R&B artist, Ursa Major releases debut single: “Dusk”

Ursa Major is the project of a 19 year old based out of Toronto who has worked to fuse psychedelic rock wit R&B and explored the frontier of music that lies between “the sounds of the past and the production of the future.”

Ursa Major’s music has been created, composed and cut in dorm rooms, basements and bedrooms and was produced and engineered by Montreal’s Cavewerk and Noah Barer.

“Dusk” is a dark, muddy and seductive track that straddles the fence between R&B and electronic music. It incorporates sounds both strange and familiar, the perfect balance for fans of the quickly evolving musical world of R&B.
