Sam Rappaport – “Journeyman’s Ballet”

The latest release from Brooklyn-based artist Sam Rappaport, “Journeyman’s Ballet” captivates with a dreamy, soft vein of folk and rock. A melodic, bouncy piano-based backbone drives to the resonating line “why does the darkness bring a requiem for a king?” — exuding a poetic suaveness. The vocals expand alongside brisker piano and acoustic additives as the three-minute mark, the ensuing piano showing a warm, lounge-friendly quality. Conjuring a sort of ’70s soft-rock nostalgia while still providing a contemporary shine, “Journeyman’s Ballet” resonates with its melodic songwriting and laid-back allure.

“Journeyman’s Ballet” was produced by Daniel Alvarez and Jordan Dunn-Pilz, members of previously featured act TOLEDO. Rappaport also fronts the band Gooseberry.

“Journeyman’s Ballet” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2021’ Spotify playlist.
