MP3: Magic Fades - She Beat All The Haters
The last thing we posted from beguiling but wonderful Portland, Oregon duo Magic Fades was the icy Chris Brown & Usher sampling slow jam "Imprint". Their She Beat All The Haters EP is on a similar R&B-crooner trip, and many have rightly pointed out their melodies have this great boy band-like quality, sappy without being cloying. With earnest and completely sweet vocals, the title track also has trap-inflected skittering drums and synths that hint at the icy futurity of the likes of Fatima al Qadiri & Nguzunguzu. Also check out their excellent 10 Songs to My LED Shower mix.
