I love denitia and sene which could tell if you frequent this site with every post I write about them. Last year, the twosome released their new single “Divided” in part of Red Bull’s Sound Select to celebrate Record Store Day – April 19th. I wrote about the Christian Rich produced single for Saint Heron which you can read here. Now the sexy track written by Sene is getting the visual treatment and it’s pretty cool. denitia looks like a vixen – that’s all I’m saying. I love this track, the reggae vibe of this song makes you want to slow wind backwards – or me at least. It’s a very sensual song.
New music from Little Dragon, always makes me excited. In my head, I sing just like Yukimi - I may even sing like her out loud not 100% sure right now. Although I wasn’t such a fan of their last effort, Ritual Union, which was released three years ago I’m extremely anxious for their new LP Nabuma Rubberband.
Little Dragon are currently on tour promoting their upcoming effort and here is the second release in the form of “Paris.” The song premiered yesterday on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio show, and now here it is in stream form. I’m pretty sure my coworkers wondered what was wrong with me as I listened to this song – baby girl probably looks like she’s having an experience. This is one of those songs that makes me live out my Flash Dance 80′s desires – Spandex and all. I just can’t STOP DANCING and I’m really loving this song.
This along with the first single “Klapp Klapp” have Nabuma Rubberband, sounding like a great project or as Lowe referred to it – “hottest record of the year.”
Listen to the stream below and pre-order Nabuma Rubberband here.
Last year, I got a chance to interview Detroit based group, Clear Soul Forces, for Frank151, about their then unreleased album Gold PP7′s. I remember asking dumb questions like what exactly a Gold PP7 was – but I learned. (You can check out the interview here) After speaking with the ‘Fearsome Foursome’ and listening to the album, I can proudly call myself a Clear Soul Forces fan and am glad to see “Solar Heat” finally get the visual treatment. The video is the final track from the groups sophomore project which you can get here — it’s a great project from start to finish – great production, lyricism everything.

With any Tune-Yards track or project, you can expect an interesting and enjoyable music experience. Keeping true to that, today the Tune-Yards are releasing their new single “Wait For A Minute” from their upcoming project Nikki Nack which will be released May 6th. “Wait For A Minute” has a real chill vibe – very retro, yet dancey all the same. I am definitely loving this song. Make sure to keep your eyes and ears out rather for Tune-Yards new project, Nikki Nack, which will be released May 6th — if your mother is a musical person, this would be a great Mother’s Day gift. I’m just saying, that’s what I’m giving and some food. #ballingonabudget
Anytime anyone mentions Marie Dahlstrom’s name it can be said that I gush over her. She’s one of my favorite new singers hands down which makes me so excited that I get to work with her on PR. She has an amazing voice. She’s a great songwriter. She is a great producer – not to mention, she has an equally interesting and cool personality. There we go with the gushing that I said exists. Last year, Dahlstrom had a pretty good year – she won three Scandinavian Soul awards, was voted Soul Bounce’s ‘Bounce Worthy Artist of The Year’ and Soul Singer, Eric Roberson, sang her praises after she performed as his opener on his London tour stop. She also released two great projects – Gloom, and her covers project The Renditions. Dahlstrom is now putting the finishing touches on her new covers project The Renditions Part 2, and this is one of the first tastes of what people can expect in the form of her Patrice Rushen cover, “Forget Me Nots.” For the track, Dahlstrom hooks up with singer Jeremy Passion and they create music. Dahlstrom also produced this track – another reason for my Marie Dahlstrom gush festivals.
Listen to the stream below but keep an eye out for the project.
