Baby Rose – “Fight Club/Go”

Baby Rose continues an exciting run with “Fight Club,” which features Georgia Anne Muldrow, and “Go” — both of which were created in partnership with Secretly Canadian. “‘Fight Club’ is like a switch went off. I’m being urged to let go of what was for what could have been. A higher version of consciousness enters the chat, picture the role played by Georgia Anne Muldrow, urging me to abandon the comfort of familiarity and take a risk. To live life with vigor and trust myself. We made this record within the matter of a few hours. It was a flow, guided energetically by the urge to break out of any box I was put in,” she said of the song, adding, “‘Go’ is about fighting to hold onto past love by any means necessary. That love is redefined depending on the state of mind I’m in when listening. Sometimes sourced from within (my essence and purpose), but sometimes it’s the past – people and things. The record is nostalgic. It finds me in a space fighting for the familiar and fading. This record was created in Nashville while I was in a state of peak blessings, but at the time felt fearful in the back of my mind because I knew nothing lasts forever. That is a beautiful and equally painful fact of life.”

I put blood sweat and tears (and a couple years) into this project. It’s a body of work that is timeless, and still can measure up among the greats; male OR female.”

Nick Hakim – COMETA

Nick Hakim follows up WILL THIS MAKE ME GOOD with COMETA, the Spanish translation of “kite.” Recorded in Texas, North Carolina, California and New York, the 10-track effort is billed as “a collection of romantic songs written through different lenses that are guided by Hakim’s experience of falling in love in a way that made him feel like he was floating.” He said, “The key is to find that extremity of love for yourself. It’s about growing into someone you want to be; it’s about finding pure love within yourself when the world around us seems to be crumbling.”
