Rhythm and Blues is one of those genres that is easily paired with anything. Most commonly today, we hear Trap&B, which fuses the sultry voice of a singer and the hard hitting sound of an 808s machine. As for Toronto singer Daniel Casear, taking the contemporary route wasn’t enough. He effortlessly adds a bit a soul and gospel into is debut album Freudian and wouldn’t be complete without it.
At 22-years-old, Daniel Caeasar’s music gives us a breath of fresh air from what’s currently playing on our radio. Get You featuring Kali Uchis was one of the first singles to be released from the project and it set the tone for a sound we haven’t heard in a long time: actual notes. The singer sprinkles in a few gospel references from Kyle David Matthew’s “We Fall Down” on We Find Love along with Kirk Franklin’s “Hold Me Now” on Hold Me Down.
Scrolling down our oh-so opinionated twitter feed, the LP garners mixed reviews which we’re hoping stem from the lack of knowledge of R&B in it’s true form along with the lack of God in some people’s lives, but but we’re not here to judge, only here to listen to great music.
