I'm so enchanted with Madi Diaz right now. Just a few weeks ago, it was because of her side project Riot Horse's folky siren-like track 'Rabbit Hole', now it's because of her latest LP, Phantom. Since I bought it a few days ago, it's been in the rotation around the headquarters here at Aimless Skylarking, even summoning a few quizzical looks from the boss. And if my best album list of 2014 wasn't already finished, it might have made some noise.
The lead single, 'Stay Together', has been out for a few months now, but that doesn't matter to us. We like giving subtle reminders about songs in case you got caught up in the tsunami that is new music. It has close to 190k views on YouTube and over 50k on Soundcloud. I can see why. It's drenched in the 80's, bubbly and dancey, even if the material isn't. My favorite part of it all is Madi's incredible voice, spectacular. Check out the video for Stay Together, it's the Song of the Day!
