Viigo are used to fully documenting their emotions through vocalist, MJ Hancock’s lyrics.
Like so many musicians, Viigo use music to explore anxiety, despite there still being a taboo about the subject, and nothing says it better than their new single ‘Paranoia’, which we are sharing today along with an excellent playlist.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra – First World Problem
This dude just keeps getting better and better. The horns on this new one are awesome and the hook is truly clever.
Tabu Ley Rochereau – Hafi Deo
I put this on at pretty much any family get together I attend. The backup vocal hook is super catchy, nice airy track with a sweet bridge a little over 3 minutes in.
Nohelani Cypriano – Lihue
The intro to this track gets me every time. Sweet dreamy vibes throughout.
Janet Jackson – Got ’Til It’s Gone
The descending bass line on this is perfect and outside the box. J Dilla ghost-produced this track, if by ghost-produced you mean he got his credit snaked by the powers that be.
Empress Of – Woman Is A Word
This one is hard as hard gets. Empress Of is our collective favorite going right now.
Nite-Funk – Let Me Be Me
Our new summer jam. Let’s you be you.
Neon Indian – News from the Sun
The whole album feels like a tape of a radio show passed from hand to hand, this closer is the Parade era Prince moment.
OutKast – Da Art Of Storytellin’
One of the most haunting tracks from the Dungeon Family, one of our biggest influences when we make Viigo tracks.
serpentwithfeet – flickering
This is just plain beautiful. The vocal is out of the park.
Viigo’s single, ‘Paranoia’ is out now via 10K Islands.
Sounds like: Leo Islo
