We are back with the best new music going around this week with another incredible addition of new tracks for your enjoyment!
The 2ser Feature Album comes from South London drummer and producer Yussef Dayes with his ground-breaking debut album “Black Classical Music”. Dayes started out drumming at the age of four, learning from Miles Davis’ drummer Billy Cobham, and you can hear how far he’s come with the litany of incredible percussion and drum grooves influenced by African, Central and South American rhythms. Collaborating with artists like Elijah Fox and Tom Misch, this album is a beautifully rendered explosion of cosmic soundscapes and minimalist jazz grooves and leaves us excited for what’s next from Dayes.
Naarm singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett is back with her fourth studio album and debut soundtrack “End of the Day” from the film “Anonymous Club” (2021). The album was recorded in 2021 and written in collaboration with Stella Mozegawa, and showcases a unique direction from Barnett, incorporating a collection of instrumental and ambient improvisations in order to craft unique soundscapes around the films story of Barnett’s rise to fame.
Staying in Victoria, we have the debut album “Julia” from singer/songwriter Juice Webster. Exploring the tides of loss and bittersweet experiences of time, Juice Webster delicately and beautifully supports her sentimental lyricism with dreamy guitars and shimmering reverb creating an angelic atmosphere around her voice. Recorded in the Victorian country side, this sweet-edged pop and folk record is a perfect listen for fans of Boygenius and Carla Geneve.
Baltimore-born and London-based soul artist Jalen Ngonda has released his debut album “Come Around and Love Me”, a burning collection of deep soul cuts and rich pulsing instrumentation. Recorded at Hive Mind Studios in Brooklyn, NY, this debut album from Ngonda is a big nod to 70s Motown production yet embraces contemporary changes in soul music through the years. Ngonda’s rich and dynamic falsetto voice sits front and centre through the track list and shines through the euphoric arrangements in the best way possible.
Synth-pop trio Nation of Language have blessed us with their third studio album, “Strange Disciple”. Following up off the success of their 2021 album “A Way Forward”, the group lean heavily into electronic influences from the late 70s/early 80s with colourful bass synthesisers and cute playful drum machines. Dripping with stark, cold emotion, this stripped back indie-pop release will hit home for fans of Depeche Mode and Syzergy.
We also have some amazing local releases from Mega Fauna with “Blue” and Raindrop with “Feel Enough”, as well as a new single “Return to Centaurus” from Australian psych-jazz wizards Mildlife.
