Listen Here

We’re doing the usual genre bouncing with this list. New singles out from Laura Marling, Bob Dylan, The Dandy Warhols, and others give us a lot to look forward to this spring.

Sampha has his first full-length album, but he’s far from a newcomer. He’s done guest work and production work for Kanye, Drake, Solange and many others. Most recently, he produced Solange’s A Seat At The Table last year. His record, Process, is well worth a listen.

Sera Cahoone offers a very beautiful and sad song as her second single released from her upcoming album, From Where I Started. You can read more about the song and Sera Here.

I want to mention Sinkane’s Life & Livin’ It. It’s been an early favorite this year, and I highly recommend giving the full album a listen. The Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears new album, Backlash, is one that could be a favorite this year as well.

Cheers,

Listen Here!

The new full-length record from Chuck Prophet is a highlight this edition. His brand of clever, guitar-driven, hooky, singable rock is both accessible and thoughtful. We’re still early on in 2017, but Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins is among my favorites so far this year.

Karsh Kale is also a recent favorite. Up came out early last year, so I’m a bit disappointed that I only found it now. Karsh Kale has an amazing and unique blend of Indian folk and modern dance beats. His music is very percussion heavy, and mixes traditional methods with modern in a way that just fits together so well.

Also featured this week are local acts like Moon Duo and Dude York, as well new singles from well-established legends Robyn Hitchcock and Depeche Mode. a4003911402_10
