Perennial 2SER favourite and veteran singer-songwriter, producer and guitarist  Mojo Ruiz de Luzuriaga, a.k.a Mo’Ju have just released their fourth album, and it’s the feature record this week on the station.
Oro Plata Mata (Silver, Gold, Death)  is a reference to an historical documentary (of the same name) that their uncle Peque Gallaga directed in 1982 and is a multi-faceted collection of Soul and RnB, encapsulating ecological, societal and existential anxieties, as well as challenging the glorification of wealth and fame. The mood is at turns both vulnerable and fierce, and constantly brimming with tension and quiet confidence.


A real gem is the latest from the highly active San Francisco outfit The Reds, Pinks and Purples. 

Their eighth album in four years, The Town that Cursed Your Name is  brimming with uplifting guitar harmonies, direct and poignant backward-facing lyrics and spot on guitar-pop with a Smiths-esque juxtaposition of the melancholy and uplifting.

The Art of Forgetting, the latest studio album from  NYC artist Caroline Rose brings some beautifully rendered and cathartic dream-pop that explore themes of regret and grief, loss and change.

This week also sees the release of the second studio album from Denver based electronic composter Rum Tum.  solo album from the Denver solo producer
Arcadian Daze bring lush melodic electronica accompanied by jazzy drum programming along with intereaving soft-synth instruments such as harps, flutes, sitars and vintage keyboards.

Closer to home, Former Twerps frontman  Martin Frawley has just released his second solo album, “The Wannabe, and it’s an excellent one at that, with superb jangle-pop cuts and ear-worm hooks as well as a unpretentious life-affirming feel throughout.


As well, we have the latest single from local rockers Sweetie, Newcastle post-punk purveyors Dust, synth-disco from NYC-based Shallowhalo, sweet sweet soul sounds from Jalen Ngonda, the latest from jazz-funk legend Lonnie Liston Smith, upfront Oz hip hop goodness from Perth’s Sukhjit and much much more.
