Jay Boogie – sweetmisery

This one-off explores the darker side of soul. In the last five years, a handful of new artists have emerged that have been categorized as “doom soul” or “urban emo”, which are really just catchphrases to identify an alternative approach to a familiar sound. The reality is that this sound has always been around and sweet misery brings together this myriad of sounds. Tracklisting: 29m
