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.
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.
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.
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’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!
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.
