Kacy Hill introduced herself to the world last December with her first single “Experience.” She immediately gained critical approval – it didn’t take long before Kacy was signed to Kanye West’s own G.O.O.D. Music. Now we’ve been given Kacy Hill’s second-ever single, “Foreign Fields,” produced by another Sunset favorite Jack Garratt. This track starts with a simple legato-staccato-blend piano baseline and builds into a grand electronic-infused hit. If there was any doubt surrounding Kacy Hill’s talent after her first release, this song is enough to shatter those concerns. This young lady’s talent will take her far.

The Weeknd has been on a roll in 2015. He has released two singles, “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills,” both of which are currently sitting pretty in the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. I convinced myself that he was going to name his third album The Hills Have Eyes, and when he didn’t (he went with Beauty Behind the Madness), I decided to name the Tape Tuesday that as an homage to his exceptional year.
The tape plays like an escape from summer camp. I imagine around track 7 (“Round Whippin’” by A.CHAL) the protagonists are whipping their shitty cars around the hills while on copious amounts of ecstasy. Through the rest of the tape, they get in trouble, fall in love, and honestly maybe have a brief stint in rehab. I don’t know. Something crazy must happen to explain the seriousness of “Mend” by Planetarian.
But I guess that is the point of the mix. You can do crazy shit in the Hollywood Hills or wherever you are, but that crazy shit will catch up to you because the hills are watching.
Do you ever feel like the only one? ’Cause I always feel like the only one
NOTE: The Soundcloud mix is missing track 8 (“The Hills” by The Weeknd).

Some days I just want to be old. How great does it sound to be retired? I would read so many books, lay in so many hammocks, sit by so many fireplaces, cook so many meals, go on so many walks. It’s going to be delightful. But then I remember that I’m still young and energetic and I actually kind of like going to work and being productive. So for now I guess I just depend on vacations to feel like a retired person a couple times a year.
I am loving this new song about growing old and staying young by Jack Garratt, a rising star with vocal similarities to Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), which I can always get behind. Give me more of this gold, please, Jack.
Ok bye though. I’m headed on vacation.
And if I never let you go, will you keep me young, keep me young?
