Australian Soul music is coming correct! Nai Palm of the supergroup Hiatus Kaiyote is set to drop her first solo acoustic album Needle Paw on October 20th. She dropped the first single Homebody earlier this month and it is smooth as butter. Her angelic voice flows effortlessly over the chilled strums of the guitar. I can’t wait to hear the whole album. Check out the single and the new album!
The New Year brings on both optimism on the upcoming year and reflection on the past year. I am going back through some of the releases that I may have missed or overlooked and give them a proper chance. Sipprell, the songstress out of the UK, dropped her new EP Letter D in the middle of November. I have a showcased a few of her singles, but completely missed the EP. Her voice is on point on every track, while the EP is more refined than her previous acoustic releases, it doesn’t take away from the rawness behind the release. Grab this EP, you won’t regret it!
Music transcends all, regardless of distance, culture, and language great music can be created. The intercontinental collabo between the Danish producer Galimatias and the 20 year old Ohio native Alina Baraz is something special, it was meant to be. I can’t get enough of their track Fantasy, I am not exaggerating, she has one of the smoothest voice I have heard in a long time. Check it out!
The impressive Rochelle Jordan is ready to drop her new full length album 1021 in the near future, in the meantime the Torontonian is teasing us with a new single Playa 4 Life. RoJo gets IAMSU to drop a few verses on the track, their collabo reminds me of the golden era of RnB and Hiphop. It is like this track could be a throwback from the late 90s. Rochelle Jordan’s voice is so smooth, it rides over the beat with such ease. Don’t sleep and keep ya heads up for the new album, highly recommended!
Stan Forebee is back, he just dropped his new EP Reflections. He continues where he left off on his previous release Jazz Sessions by still masterfully creating these jazzy landscapes over subtle hiphop beats. In the new EP, he definitely has expanded his sound to include more of a relaxed ambient style. This new style really fits the title of the EP, you just play this EP and you are automatically in this deep thought. Cop this EP and sit back and relax. Highly recommended!
