In an effort to feature some new music, I’ve created Jam It Or Slam It, where I will post some new singles and attempt to gauge reaction to the songs.
In recognition of his twenty years on the music scene (his first album, Urban Hang Suite, was released in 1996), the first artist I will feature is Maxwell. Those of you who are familiar with Maxwell may remember that he promised a trilogy of albums, entitled Blacksummersnight way back in 2009. The Black part of the trilogy was released at that time and featured the songs “Pretty Wings” and “Bad Habits”. And then we waited…but the second album (Summers) is expected to come out this year. After a seven year wait, he has finally released some new music (though it has been out for a month now), a single called “Lake By The Ocean.” It’s a mid-tempo song that doesn’t really go anywhere, but if you have been craving new music from Maxwell, it just might hit the spot.
