She’s Such A Sight: Compton’s No Application Fee longs for those seductive brown eyes on La Chica

Taken from their new album called BEER, No Application Fee shows us the respectfully admirable way to treat a lovely human who is clearly keen to make the night something rather special on La Chica.

No Application Fee is a Compton, California-based indie alternative band who has been proudly performing together for 15 years.

Sending our hearts a reminder of how it’s done when you see someone who is looking right at you with a cheeky smile too, No Application Fee is in imperious form with a hugely memorable soundtrack for all those potential new lovers out there. Oozing with a joyous tone, this is a song that shall grab your hand and lead it into the caring grip of that desirable individual you have wanted to dance with for ages.

La Chica from the well-respected Compton, California-based indie alternative band No Application Fee is a groovy love track to remember for eternity. Sung with a mellow style that will have you smiling from ear to ear, that is infused with a hugely likeable beat that could be stuck in your soul for weeks. Actually, probably months. It’s that romantic, you see.

When you see her in red and don’t mind when she wears blue, you just know it’s love.

Listen up on Spotify and see more via their IG music page.

Superlative Ice – Backdoor: Not for The Faint Hearted.

Superlative Ice or otherwise known as Cameron Mayne is an underground Hip Hop & Rap artist from Compton, United States. Being from Compton Cameron is in no short supply of competition in the rap scene. Yet with Backdoor he’s created a standout hit that from the rest. Once you start to listen to the lyrics, you’ll soon see why. As I naively hit play on the track tiled ‘Backdoor’ I enjoyed the rhythm, the flow, the celebration of melodic resonant sound and reached a state of ubiquitous zen.

Until it dawned on me, that this may have been the most crassly misogynistic tracks I’ve ever had the experience of listening to. Sure, chauvinism is common place in the Hip Hop Rap scene and guns, bitches and bling are part of the fundamental elements of most rap stylings but the lyrics to Backdoor take it just one step too far and are bordering on the grotesque and I can’t wholeheartedly condone the conscious condescension towards women in music in the 21st century.

Whilst Cameron’s sound may not be my cup of tea, for the less easily offended you can check out his hit (if you dare) on the SoundCloud link below:
