SONG FOR SUNDAY #75: Taylor McFerrin – Decisions (Feat. Emily King)

taylor-mcferrin

Taylor McFerrin’s Decisions featuring Emily King is our Song for Sunday.

Brainfeeder has a knack of finding the best electronic talent. Starting with a pool of beat scene practitioners in LA, their influence has stretched across the globe. Taylor McFerrin joined the gang in February 2011 and his debut album Early Riser has seen the son of famous jazz musician Bobby McFerrin stand tall on the electronic music stage. The song we’ve chosen for this week’s Song For Sunday – Decisions – is taken from that album and sees McFerrin channel all his talents from band playing to his early days on the BOSS DR202 and his obsession with analogue equipment. Decisions has a majestic flow, backed by watery vocals (provided by Emily King) and a simple yet deadly beat underneath. Compositionally, you’d find it difficult to name a better track this year, particularly in a genre that receives criticism for being generic and samey.
