Michigan producer

Joey Pecoraro

has been steadily

releasing music

since last summer.

With a full-length

album this time

last year

and plenty

of singles in between,

the talented artist

came through

with the ten song

cinematic album

Music for Happiness.

Full of vocal chops

and vintage samples

with plenty of orchestrated

layers and breakdowns,

this is an uplifting

and beautiful album

by Pecoraro, one that

properly follows

up last February's

Tired Boy, one that

anticipates sunny

skies and summer love.

“First Kiss” is so good.

This vibrant album hits

the spot from start

to finish. Even

the cohesive artwork

is something

to drool over.
