Block Party, WRBB’s annual Fall Concert, is this Friday, September 7th! Take a minute to get introduced to Saba, and we’ll see you at the show.
Saba’s tendency for providing lucid and striking narratives truly shown through on 2018’s CARE FOR ME, highlighting his knack for incredibly introspective and capturing speech. Songs like “SMILE” and “GREY” showcase his breezy, yet purposeful flow — words ever so carefully curated to remind listeners of their utmost importance. Though it still retained some of his past work’s jazz-tinged influence, the immediacy of production and stripped beats brings CARE FOR ME into a special cabinet of artists seriously taking ahold of their sound and crafting the most genuine and fulfilling record that anyone will hear this year. As Pitchfork writes in their Best New Music coverage, CARE FOR ME’s “instrumentation is bracing, almost as if played live for a crowd”, making the prospect of Friday night all the more exciting.
Saba is an artist on the rise, reshaping what it means to be an artist on the rise. WRBB is truly honored to support and present a platform to share his music.
