The North Hollywood indie pop act's second single is a groovy exploration of her sound and a promising next step for the new artist.
"What you think about me? / Want me kill all my identities I had before?" Michi croons in "Still Feel U."
"Still Feel U" is the follow-up project to North Hollywood native's Michelle Guerrero's debut "Catch a Feeling. Her solo projects have offered enticing dream-pop trips with an acerbic edge. But her newest track is less floaty than its predecessor, with a deliberate funk lurking under an indie pop shine. Produced even-handedly by friend and collaborator, Jacob Munk, "Still Feel U" has a moody groove to it. The song is still awash in misty synth work, but a disco-flecked bass and Michi's crisp vocals deliver a new, arresting side of Michi's sound.
The track itself is an ode to desire, but it's not some sweet recollection; it's about coming down from desire like a high: "You got me on the run again / You got me hiding from the sun." The dreaminess of Michi's sound perfectly captures yearning for old loves. Nostalgia and pain get all tied up in knots in a less-than-three minute track. It's an exciting offering from Michi, a new talent who's still fitting herself into the unexplored corners of her genre.
Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
