FAULT Weekly Playlist: NoMBe

The Pharrell endorsed rising electro-soul phenomenon NoMBe has been releasing a steady stream of tracks over the last couple years, recently culminating in his first full-length “They Might’ve Even Love Me.”

On the buzzy, vibrant 18-track concept album, NoMBe explores and interrogates his relationships with all the women who’ve shaped his life, from ex’s to high school crushes, to true loves, to his mother, to his god-mother, soul legend Chaka Khan. With each love song taking on a different relationship, the album is a diaristic, brutally honest collection that sees NoMBe seductive, tender, elated, heartbroken and inspired all at once.

Following a successful run of shows at this year’s SXSW, NoMBe will support alt-J for a pair of shows, as well as a co-headline run of dates with Mikky Ekko and Mansionair. Before we get to that, NoMBe has shared with us some of his go-to tracks to listen to while on the road. Dive in.

Electric Guest – Dear To Me

These guys have been one of my favorites of recent years and on heavy rotation at my house. If you aren’t familiar, that needs to change!

THEY. – Dante’s Creek

I fell in love with this tune immediately. I’m a big fan of what these guys are doing. It’s very dark and emotional in a unique way with a lot of attitude…collaborations are in the works, too.

Boots – Mercy

Every now and then you find a record as an artist that makes you wonder what the hell you’re doing with your time. Mercy was that for me. My buddy Mikey Mike showed this to me and I was floored. It just sounded superior in quality and had a great song. Check out more from boots, he actually produced a lot of Beyonce’s records, too.

Sonder – Too Fast

This is my favorite record when I’m driving. Great production and Brent Faiyaz voice is jus butter..

Beshkin – Faceless

I remember meeting these cats on set shooting the video to “Faceless” and thought this might be cool. Once I heard the song weeks later I realized there’s some serious talent about to come up. Gus solo work has also been very inspiring. Make sure to give him a listen as well.

DCKWRTH – Michull

DUCKWRTH has been another great artist I’ve been really into. His whole swag and esthetic are really inspiring. Check out our song together called 2 Bucks!
