Gabriel Garzón-Montano: 6 8 (Lord RAJA Remix)

A Snacky Tunes #PrivateJam, San Diego newcomer Swim Team, a '90s dance floor tribute and more in the music we tweeted this week

On his EP Bishouné: Alma del Huila (off NYC imprint Styles Upon Styles), Gabriel Garzón-Montano reminds listeners what instruments, not computers, are capable of doing. The SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music grad sings and plays every single note himself. He encapsulates the mellow soul of early Lauryn Hill but reflects his own personality by keeping his tunes sparse and lyrics relevant. Fans will appreciate Lord RAJA’s (of Ghostly) remix of Garzón-Montano’s ballad “6 8,” which transforms the soulful song into shadowy remnants of the singer’s vocals and piano notes. Catch Garzón-Montano opening for Lenny Kravitz on the Strut World Tour through 14 December 2014.
