Gems from Belgium, Philly, South London and Queens. You can check out these artists on my weekend show on 89.9 FM in LA on KCRW or my various Spotify playlists which you can scroll down and find.

 

___________________________________________________________________________________________

 

JAGAUR JAGUAR 

This new ep titled Madelyn from Belgium’s Jaguar Jaguar  has some sweet drum breaks and synths that touch on various genres and moods. The band spent some time in France away from civilization to record this new EP.  I dig.

 

 

COSMO PYKE 

South London continues to give us more under the radar – raw – singer songwriters that sound amazing. Inspired by Joni Mitchell, Marley and The Beatles, Cosmo’s utilization of the instrumentation is more of a blend of Liam Bailey meets King Krule. But in a very good way.

 

 

SON LITTLE 

This one is a tear jerker. I first heard this and stopped everything I was doing. Played  it on my weekend radio show and again, stopped me. ALOHA is the new album and filled with feel good soul that can heal or help with the challenges of life. It’s honest, real and emotional, yet also a celebration of life. Philly artists always packages these elements together with grace.

 

 

MARTHA DA’RO

Martha’s voice is chilling. If you get a chance check out “Fool”. Youtube won’t let me upload so, do yourself a favor, pull it up, grab the tissue and prepare for artist moody brilliance. Watch! 

 

RAVEENA 

This sultry songstress continues where she left off in keeping everything I loved about her last album, LUCID. MOONSTONE is her latest EP continues to keep me on my toes with what direction she may grow into. I’m a big fan of all her work and enjoy her evolution.

Some new adds for this week’s playlist. It’s been a rather interesting weekend for me personally. Folks from my past resurfacing, a change of moods and battling a returning cold. Music helps us push forward, right? I’m challenging myself to set goals in addition to my physical work outs to help me get out of this funk. What works for you? Let me know.  Hope you enjoy these new adds.  Make sure to subscribe and you can listen directly on Spotify.

Here we go! 5 artists with cuts that are freshly scraped from this weekend’s KCRW playlists. Every week I dig through record bins and the blogosphere to find something new and different. These artists carry that torch.

 

DANIEL AVERY 

The return of the electronic producer known for his work with Hercules and Love Affair, Metronomy and others is back with a beautiful forthcoming LP. This single titled Illusion of Time stopped me in my tracks. It has hints of the Uncut Gems soundtrack but also has it’s own unique texture.

 

Phony PPL 

Been a fan for a minute then randomly stumbled into one of their shows last year at SXSW. Was a surprise to see them backing Megan Thee Stallion on NPR’s Tiny Desk late last year and I’m just super proud as a music fan to see their growth.

 

 

AERIES ROVES

I know very very little about this artist but what I do know is his voice is all chills.  Out of Yorkshire, this amazing singer/songwriter opened for Billie Eilish during the European leg of her tour. I really hope this brother continues his amazing journey.

 

 

Tyler The Creator 

Fresh off his recent Grammy win for best rap album for IGOR, Tyler delivers what sounds to possibly something left off the album? Regardless, Best Interest is the jam! It’s got that soul sample element we all loved in early Kanye, the flip of the vocal speed at the start, the raspy verse of Tyler, the chord change we appreciate in Earfquake, and the subject seems to take us where we left off with Frank Ocean’s Self Control.

 

 

ACIDSLOP

Melbourne continues to deliver top notch forward thinking soul. Self taught, dj/producer ACIDSLOP has such a unique grit that channels Fly Lo, day time disco and Sly Stone into one interesting body of work. Listen to more here.
