Huey Manson – “Keeper”

Bouncy keys and a melodic vocal flow lead throughout “Keeper,” a track from Huey Manson, an artist from Madison, WI. “Keeper” comes via the new EP The Last DEMO, which touts the artist’s stylistic pursuit of “Nublu” — a self-prescribed sub-genre described as “a mixture of rap, early blues, early 2000’s rock, funk and soul.” Sure enough, the EP is a fun and eclectic display, ranging from the immediate infectiousness of “Keeper” to the soulfully hazy “Lvr Boi” and gripping rock/hip-hop hybrid “Famous.” I’m reminded of Frank Ocean’s tendency on albums to alternate between bouncier displays of accessibility with enjoyable oddball showings.

The Last DEMO can be streamed in full below;
