LISTEN — The Domestics “It Came To Me”

July 7th, 2015

domestics-nerdist

“Michael Finn and Leo London have been writing songs together since the pair met in a recording studio in Portland in 2013, and though they recorded their first album in spring of 2014, they sound like they have been writing partners for a decade. Listening to the poppy simplicity of “It Came To Me”, you can easily glean the authenticity of the group’s emotional earnestness. And if that isn’t enough to sell you, then wait for the chorus when resounding piano chords give way to a crunchy guitar riff that leaps electrically up the fretboard.” — via Nerdist

LISTEN — Gecko Tuner “Chicken Wire”

July 7th, 2015

geckotuner-chickenwire

“Maybe James Brown’s lyrics are to blame for many Spaniards’ habit of referring to a genre they love as “funky” instead of “funk,” confusing the verb with the noun. Or maybe it’s Wild Cherry’s fault for singing “Play That Funky Music, White Boy.” Whatever you call it, Gecko Turner brings it to his new album, “That Place By The Thing With The Cool Name.” Turner, who likes to sing in English, is a musical multiculturalist from Spain’s Extremadura region whose songs are backed by Afro-beat, Cuban and Brazilian rhythms. He has a particular passion for American soul, and yes, funk (or shall we say funky?)” — via Billboard

LISTEN — Daymé Arocena “Don’t Unplug My Body”

DaymeArocena-waxpoetics

“I was knocked out at her professionalism and people connection,” Gilles [Peterson] recalls about first meeting her. “She is so many things—a serious artist who knows exactly what she wants musically. I love her purity—she is deeply spiritual and involved in her Santeria studies. She is also a total laugh! Yes, Daymé is the truth.” — via Wax Poetics

Check out the lead single from Daymé Arocena’s debut album, Nueva Era, below!

“Shoot the Dice” finds Main Attrakionz suited-up and ready for a night of live performance and — true to the song’s title — dice throwing. Produced by Friendzone, the song also features a rapid-fire verse by Green Ova’s Shady Blaze.” — via FACT

beachbaby-interviewmag

“Beach Baby’s short set list hasn’t stopped the band from playing stages and festivals around the world, alongside the likes of Caribou, Patti Smith, Ride, and DIIV. Based in London, the quartet has only released four songs—”U R,” “No Mind No Money,” “Bruise,” and “Ladybird”—which blend together hazy lo-fi elements of shoegaze and post-punk interspersed with subtle electronics.” — via Interview

LISTEN — Maribou State “The Clown (ft. Pedestrian)” (John Beltran Remix)

July 5th, 2015

mariboustate-johnbeltranremix

“The latest remix of Maribou State’s “The Clown” single finds John Beltran reshaping the piano-laced, beat-spliced original into a tender IDM track. Not the preset and plugin-driven machine music that dominated the Autechre era so much as a melodic listen that retains the live, moody feel Maribou State perfected on their new Portraits LP.” — via Self-Titled

LISTEN — Kate Tempest On NPR’s “All Songs Considered”

July 4th, 2015

katetempest-allsongsconsidered

“We asked Tempest to be our guest DJ on this week’s episode of All Songs Considered to find out the story behind her stories. Unsurprisingly, the songs by other musicians that she chose to play point feature sharp, contemplative lyrics and artists who have never compromised their work in the name of popularity or commercial success. From a life-changing experience with the rapper RZA to the Dylan that woke her up to the power of words, the music Tempest talks about on our show is all about the ways music can break down walls to communicate directly with whoever’s listening.” — via NPR
