Steezy Ray Vibes, “Empty City (Demo)” MP3

April 26, 2012



Steezy Ray Vibes, whose name hopefully references the tragic blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, is a new project by Dan Casey, the Oakland producer bka Yalls. Though Steezy has only released a single song, and a demo at that, "Empty City" is beautifully expansive, patiently unfolding a midnight guitar into a full-on morning street scene with layered vocals and pops of drums. The song title alone conveys so much—if this was a GIF blog I'd make a little music video out of that flower box shot from Adaptation and call it a day. Actually, maybe I just will.
