What’s amazing to me is that there are two entirely different artists making music under the name Belly these days. The “original” Belly, as I like to call them, is an alt-rock band that was started in the early ’90s by Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses. They had a hit song “Feed the Tree” in 1993 that earned them fame and popularity. They subsequently broke up in 1996. Nearly 10 years later, Canadian (Drake-esque) rapper Belly arrived on the scene, and managed to gain popularity through a couple of mixtapes. He signed to Jay-Z’s label Roc Nation in 2015, and his star continues to rise. One year after that, Belly the band reunited, and earlier this month released their first album since 1995. Are you confused yet? Because I am. Typically in situations like these, one of the artists would be forced to change their name. I guess it’s less of an issue because they sound so different. Still, it makes Pick Your Poison a little challenging when you feature both of them (thankfully never at the same time). Today’s Belly track features The Weeknd, so you can hopefully guess which artist is responsible (hint: not the band). Belly aside, other highlights include a new stunner from James Blake, as well as Lucy Mason’s rather straightforward yet beautiful piano cover of Radiohead’s “High & Dry”. Move on past the jump for more songs from Bluestaeb, Campdogzz, Ella Grace, Farao, G-Eazy (ft. Global Dan), Omar Apollo, PENPALS, viben, and ViVii.
