Happy Monday, you guys! Hope you're as excited as I am for this week's edition of FVM. Starting off with the latest from Bwana, can't believe it's been years since his last release, but the wait has been worth it. It was only right for it to fall into the next track which is one of my favorites by Milosh (aka Michael Milosh of Rhye) that's too mesmerizing for words. I recently stumbled across an artist by the name of Jack Garratt who easily won my ears over with "The Love You're Given." Good luck getting that one out of your head. 
Also, TUCH was last week's Friday Fascination, if you might have missed it - no worries, click here.  In the midst of Johnny Jewel (of CHROMATICS) releasing tracks on his SoundCloud page, a new one popped up called "White Light" that has me wondering if a new album might be surfacing soon. *crosses fingers* So as you can see, I can easily go on & on about each of the tracks I've selected - but I'll let you be the judge.
 Any new discoveries lately? 

P.S. Beyoncé Platinum edition is out now, and if you aren't one of the 20 million who've already watched the video for "7/11", I'm just going to leave this here.

Friday Fascination: TUCH

TUCH is a creative duo from Los Angeles composed of Austin Taylor Tirado and Michael James Lee. I was recently exposed to them from a friend, and was surprised to find out this duo only has one track (not that i'm complaining.) It's called "Unlock" and in a way, it's essentially unlocking our ears and introducing us to what TUCH has to offer in the future as rising artists. 

What I found was something mysterious in the sense that these two have something up their sleeve, which will have every listener wanting more after hearing "Unlock." As stated on their Facebook page, "R&B first picked up where funk and disco left off and TUCH picks up where R&B left off." Definitely a great way to describe their sound, and I'm looking forward to where they go from here. The single drops on November 25th via International House of Sound
P.S. If you've never checked out IHOS, definitely do yourself a favor and click on the link above. This California label knows how to cover multiple bases with ease.
