It can be pretty hard to get back into the swing of things after the holidays but luckily we have lots of new music to help you ease back into the new year.
Venture through the vibrant, energetic sound of Oakland based group Orchestral Gold’s new west African psychedelic and fuzz rock inspired album Medicine, which also happens to be this weeks feature album. Filled to the brim with funky rhythms, groovy bass lines, blasting horns, and brilliant vocals from Mariam Diakite, this album will transfix you with its funky and exotic wall of sound.
Next up we have French producer Ugly Mac Beer’s new album The Valley of the Kings, his 16th and first solo album since 2016. The tight instrumental loops, strange multilingual spoken word samples, and funky bass lines will have you nodding your head in no time. Fans of Fat Boy Slim, The Allergies, Elliot Lipp and DJ Shadow/Cut Chemist have to check this album out. Trippy beat making at its finest!
San Francisco solo artist Meg Baird also released her sixth studio album earlier this year. Furling is an earthy journey filled with beautiful folk melodies, low-key instrumentation, and poetic lyrics. Fans of Big Thief, Phoebe Bridgers, and Aldous Harding have to check out this gorgeous slice of cosmic Americana.
As many of you probably already know, indie supergroup Boygenius announced their long awaited return with the release of three songs (‘$20’, ‘Emily, I’m Sorry’, and ‘True Blue’) from their upcoming album The Record earlier this year. With so much creative power in one group, this latest batch of songs is just a taster of greater things to come from Boygenius.
Sydney based group Mannequin Radioreleased their second single Spider on the Dance Floor in late 2022. With warbling guitar lines, a grimy bass line, and dark yet alluring lyrics, “I’ll make sure I look sexy when I die”, fans of Joy Division, The Cure, and The Pixies should definitely check these guys out.
Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Nick Waterhouse released Hide and Seek earlier this year. Nick’s vintage inspired R&B pop vibes will have you dancing and singing in no time. But wait! Don’t just listen to it! the music video for Hide and Seek, which depicts Nick as a radio dj, makes the whole vintage experience even better.
