Laura Jae — “Let Go”
It’s nice to start off Monday slow. “Let Go” is so gentle it barely exists; there’s a single layer of gently pulsing synths, but Jae’s plaintive opening lines — “Open your eyes, stay awake” — are so powerful, so cooly delivered, that we’re immediately lost. This is the first original track Jae has released from her upcoming EP, “Silver Lined Hearts,” and she sounds just as dreamily spaced out now as she did when we first met her, covering the King Krule track  “Out Getting Ribs.”  The same steady beats, the same gorgeous voice. Jae extracts sonic honey from the world; makes us feel like we’re still dreaming long into the afternoon. A+.
