This is by no means a new genre but for some reason listening to Grieves’ track “On the Rocks” which you can stream below … you can’t help but sense that there is more to this tune and those lyrics.

Grieves – On The Rocks by rhymesayers

After some research it turns out that you’re supposed to feel that way about the tracks featured on his latest album “Together/Apart” which will drop on the 21st of June 2011.

Having spent nearly two years on the road touring in support of 88 Keys and Counting, Grieves found himself returning home to a fractured reality.  Reeling from  turbulence in his career and heartbreak in his personal life mixed with  coming down from the high of the support he received on the road Grieves  conceptualized Together/Apart, an album that would address the bond  music creates between each of us as individuals and as a whole despite  the many distances we experience be they geographical or emotional.

The collab between Danish DJ/Producer Kenneth Bager and Alloe Blacc is a surprisingly delightful experience. Alloe’s voice adds a big chunk of soul to a tune so cheerful that it’s almost annoying. Big chance you’ve heard this one before cause there is no lack of airplay.

The reason you know this odd blend really works?! …is that you just can’t stop smiling. “The Sound of Swing” is taken from the album Fragments From A Space Cadet 2′

Diversity. Ambition. Evolution. Those words signify what can be the most powerful tools in an artist’s arsenal. Blueprint has made a career out of tapping heavily into all three. “So Alive”, the lead single from Blueprint’s sophomore album Adventures In Counter-Culture is a perfect example where all three comfortably mesh together over a self produced frantic, 60’s inspired slice of soulful electro pop.
