If love always went smoothly, what would R&B artists have to sing about? A staff selection from Muzi‘s new Somnolence Vol. II album, the subdued yet powerful Jack Of Hearts contains both hints of hope and mourning for a love lost, recovered and lost again. For Jack album producer Shoden!1 gives us an electronically drenched instrumental that rides smoothly for most of the track, then explodes with pounding percussion on the outro. Muzi uses that canvas to vocally paint a picture of a relationship that is causing him no shortage of heartache, but he still can’t let go. For more sonic explorations of love, lust and everything in between, be sure to cop Somnolence Vol. II, available for free stream and download right here on The DJBooth.
