As I make my return from travelling and a brief hiatus from all things music related D’Angelo makes an amazing return with his first album in 14 years. Black Messiah is the follow up to 2000’s critically acclaimed Voodoo and you can stream the entirety of the album, created with his band The Vanguard, on Spotify (or pick it up on iTunes) now. But if you still need convincing give Sugah Daddy a listen below. Enjoy.
As with the music you’ll find on his A Little Late EP, Baby Grey displays how adept Loyle Carner is at bringing emotion out in his voice, in a way that you just don’t hear with emcees. The South Londoner’s newest release is a response to a nominee to this year’s Turner Prize. Enjoy.
I was asked by Tate Collective London to create a track in response to the Turner Prize 2014 nominated artist Tris Vonna-Michell at Tate Britain.
The exhibition finishes on the 4th of January, so head down soon!
So apparently despite buying, listening to, and thoroughly enjoying Thelma Plum‘s Monsters EP, I apparently never gave it any sort of feature. The Brisbane local was just on Triple J and she performed Young In Love live, as well as a cover of Chet Faker‘s Gold, as part of the station’s Like A Version series. Check that all out below and get your hands on a copy of Monsters. Enjoy.
Tom Misch has become a staple on these pages, and this new release has him sharing the load with the beautiful Carmody. After giving So Close a spin get excited, because not only do the duo have an EP coming out in just over a month, but they have already released a completely separate single. Do yourself a favour and have a listen to The Last Song single and another track from the EP on Carmody‘s soundcloud, then grab a pre-order of the Out To See EP. Enjoy.
St. South. Every damn time I see that name it’s attached to some music that treats my ears ridiculously well. Hold is the newest from the Fremantle based electronic, indie, soul (etc.) musician. Check below for a stream and a video, and if you’re after a download, and perhaps giving a little review of your own, just click here. Enjoy.
Along with working on his debut album and his Neverland 2 release Michael Seuss has apparently been working on a follow up to his East Hero mixtape. The first single off the upcoming East Hero 2: The Return Of Alpha-Man features production from long time collaborator Stan The Beatsmith, sees Seuss sharing the mic with fellow label mate (on 5am Records) X-am and the result is just as great as you would hope. This is a promising look into the next (busy) year or so of Seuss releases. Enjoy.
