HMD Guest Series: AYLS

We asked fellow collaborator AYLS to send over a couple songs she can't stop playing. Here's what she gave us!

AYLS is a LA-based songwriter and singer. Check out her latest release with HMD, “Fetish (HMD Re-Edit)” on Soundcloud and Spotify.

Sabrina Claudio - “Unravel Mel”

I just discovered Sabrina Claudio and now I overwhelmed by envy, which for me is my highest form of praise. I love everything about what she’s doing. Her voice is effortless, but the music and arrangements are complex.

HAIM - “That Don’t Impress Me Much” (Cover of Shania Twain)

I loved this song when it was first popular with Shania Twain, and I find this HAIM cover to do it justice. The acoustic version brings it some new life, and the sound is rich and organic.

Nsolo - “Hush”

Just stumbled upon Nsolo on Soundcloud; he’s got a great voice and vibe. Looking forward to hearing more from him.

Niia - “Hurt You First”

This track is funky and incredibly artful. Niia is one to watch as she has been making a name for herself the last few years with thoughtful, beautiful, jazz-inspired music.

James Vincent McMorrow - “Surreal”

JVM is a staple in my rotation. I covet his falsetto and secretly wish it were mine. I love the reverb in this track; it adds so much space and drama to what seems like a simple arrangement.

HMD Guest Series: Peter Daily

We reached out to friend and fellow collaborator Peter Daily for his top 3 songs (very hard to do...we know)...Not only did he come back with some great ones, but he also gave us a peak into some of his own songs! Check him out.

Paul McCartney - "Maybe I'm Amazed"

Being a big McCartney fan this might be my favorite song from him. It's a straight forward love song and on this live version he kills it vocally.

Peter Daily - Seven More Days

This is one of my favorite songs that I've written. I had the pleasure of working with guitarist Brian Ray (Paul McCartney) on this one.

Gabriel Garzon-Montano - "Crawl"

A girl called Tasha introduced me to this Stonesthrow artist. Gabriel is piano player like myself so I appreciate the chord progressions and feel. Real funky tune.

Peter Daily - Without You

I had just been in a bad break up while in Orlando Florida. The girl left me for another and after I ran into her and her new guy I went home and wrote this song.

MuteMath - "Break the Fever"

This song is off MuteMath's new album "Play Dead." I've known these guys for a while now and I'm always impressed with how the take rock and roll and blend it with funky pop sounds.
