New songs pulled from my recent KCRW set except for the Terrance Etc. cut. Peep below!
Terrance Etc. – Infinince or Infinity
This song has been on repeat nonstop in my ear buds. From coffee runs to dog walks, on the road or while sitting in the steam room at the Y during work outs. Terrance has directed amazing videos and behind HBO’s Random Acts Of Flyness. And to hear his sonic offering has been a blessing to my ears.
DRAMA – Billy
An oldie but goodie. Got the chance to hang with them in Chicago while working on the Place In Sound podcast. Now signed to Ghostly, we are witnessing their growth, but Billy will always have a home in my heart.
Hanni El Khatib – Stressy
With Hanni, you never know if your getting grit, soul or even something other. I love that about his music. Wait Wait Wait still remains a favorite. This beat reminds me of 90’s Chemical Brothers. There are lots of things happening in this one song. I dig.
Thundercat – Dragonball Durag
The genius reigns supreme. Last night I played this song on KCRW and I wanted to figure out why I actually loved this song. Thundercat channels 70’s soul with 2040 lyrics. He connects worlds, but most importantly he’s having fun.
Ben Chandler – Sad Boy
Don’t know much about him, but I’m here for it!
New additions to the Spotify playlist to help you kick things in high gear! Listen check out the playlist directly here.
From New Edition to Morrissey, Thom Yorke to Takashi Yoshimatsu, I got you. Cause not everyone’s Teddy Pendergrass tomorrow night on Valentine’s Night. My favorite movie of all time is Manchester By The Sea, so you know this is the vibe. Listen directly on Spotify.
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.
Gems found from across the blogosphere for your enjoyment and musical get away. Best listening experience is direct from Spotify.
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.
