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.
