English singer songwriter FKA Twigs (Tahliah Debrett Barnett) has released her sophomore album ‘Magdalene’, a raw and stripped back account of a difficult time in her life: after a heavy breakup with actor Robert Pattinson and laparoscopy surgery. There are religious elements to the album, with it named after Mary Magdalene and some of the tracks exuding a certain hymn-like soundscape. With empowering and honest lyricism, alongside thoughtful production elements, the album is another compelling piece of work, and a breath of fresh air from the highly acclaimed artist.
Michael Moebus is a celebrated DJ and producer from Sydney, who you may know from our 2SER’s very own Back To Funk program. Under his moniker Meem, he has released ‘Monsters vs Magic’, his 7th album. Overflowing with groove, future reggae, electronic and funk beats, this is a record that illuminates Meem’s expansive musical artistry, and through his collaborations, the ability to be on the front foot when it comes to identifying emerging, underground artists from all around the world.
American singer-songwriter and bassist Kate Davis has released her debut album ‘Trophy’, a masterpiece of folk-tinged indie rock. With assertive and honest lyrics, heartfelt melodies and her raw and jazzy tone of voice (which she was taught at a young age), Davis’ music is mystical, reflective and all-encompassing while focusing on the universal themes of identity, self worth and loss, and connecting the listener with her personal experiences.
