Yuna – Crush ft. Usher

| STAFF – “Crush” is a February 2016 release from Malaysian singer-songwriter superstar Yuna and features American RnB icon, Usher.

MidiStar, Music, Humans and the Brain

  | A while back, in a talk I had with a friend, I brought up how peculiar it is that humans derive energy from very specific, mathematically linked arrangements of sound and movement. How is it that we enjoy one sequence of sounds in a given song yet are unnerved by a different series […]
