Spinning this week through the 2SER airwaves is Daptone Records residents and Queens-based Frightnrs with their latest record Always. Warm golden Reggae tones emanate from the five piece in the album. Lead singer Dan Klein tragically passed away in 2016 and Always features some of his final vocal recordings. Despite the group’s clear 1960’s rocksteady and reggae influence they manage to serve up a modern and truly soulful take on the genre in Always. The feature album for the next 7 days on the station is Bottled up’s swirling genre blender of a release Grand Bizarre, fusing together unique elements of disco, electronic music and indie rock to produce a truly original and refreshing sound on the Washington D.C locals fourth LP.
Local endearing soundwaves will be heard from producer and songwriter Lewis Goldmark, who has just released his debut album Cut and Flash. Ethereal vocal harmonies float along in the debut which are punctuated by entrancing synth spiked grooves that are infused with a dash of swagger and emotion. Also being spun this week on the station will be Anyways and also sorry, the 9th album from North Coast indie rockers Royal Chant. Emotionally charged lyrics that are accompanied with guitars that drip with a lucious lick of fuzz are on full display from the group. Shifting towards a more experimental sound we have UK based Japanese Artist Yama Warushi’s serving up a fresh injection of classical Japanese music with a sprinkle of free jazz and African dance music in Crispy Moon.
Looking to the latest single adds, let’s take a psychedelic journey with The Sugarland Express whose latest track Party! is brimming with sundrenched Synths and Shimmering vocal melodies that mirror the dreamy tones of fellow Australian psych rockers The Babe Rainbow and Sunfruits. A sparkling synth led single is heard from LA trio Automatic, who have brought out a mesmerising number in Skyscraper. Pulsating and emotionally charged pop and RnB will be heard this week from Los Angeles artist Sudan Archives in her single, Selfish soul. Shifting towards atmospheric soul we also have a new groover from New York-based musician Leon Michels AKA El Michels Affair.
All this and much more going onto rotation at 2SER from today. Tune in throughout the week to hear.
