MBE Oct. 28: Golden hour, fantastic soul, birthday boys

Hosted by and

Happy Friday! Today we explore the debut album written, recorded, and produced entirely by TikTok-famous JVKE and his brother ZVC in their Rhode Island home. Vibe to “Golden Hour” to catch a glimpse of the four-stage journey he maps out: falling in love, heartbreak, sadness, and falling out of love. Then hear how it sounds remixed by neo-soul electronic wizards Jungle. 

Next we venture forward with tasty releases for your New Music Friday, including the timeless soul sounds of 71-year-old Lee Fields, Mexican singer-songwriter Natalia Lafourcade, and more.

Plus, big birthday love to SoCal natives Ben Harper, with his 99’ release “Suzie Blue,” and Frank Ocean, with “Close to You” off of his masterpiece 2016 album “Blonde.”
