Here we go! 5 gems of the week. Strong in rotation and you can find on my weekly KCRW shows.

 

Mr. Carmack

Carmack has demonstrated his growth on his new album, VIISTA. Looking forward to seeing this experience live! Carmack has strength on the beats but seeing is growth into creating a solid sonic landscape into song building is promising!

 

CLEVER AUSTIN 

Hiatus Kaiyote’s Clever Austin returns with some melodic gems. Shout outs to Si of Wondercore for passing this may way during his recent LA visit.

 

Daniela Andrade

As I was prepping for a set earlier in the year, somehow Daniela Andrade popped up on my radar. This bilingual artist had a catalogue of covers and I was trying to figure her out but her new material finds this amazing songstress developing her footing.

 

YEEK

Can’t front. This is my shit! If you have listened to my weekly show on 89.9 FM in LA then  odds are you have heard this gem at least a zillion times..

 

FALLEN ROSES 

Vibes galore all over this beautiful gem from Fallen Roses. Hannah Jenkins kills this cut.
