DANiCA HUNTER

danicahunter

“Typical” is the latest release from British singer/songwriter, Danica Hunter. Hunter’s latest single brings together a quirky mix of pop and soul stitched together with her powerful voice.

With experience playing with Geno Washington, Sting, and Little Simz, Hunter has started to pop up all over the UK festival scene. I think it’s safe to say we will see her on the charts soon.

Roadkill Ghost Choir: False Youth Etcetera Vol. 1

ROadkillghost

We first caught Roadkill Ghost Choir just after sunset on a backyard stage in Austin, back in 2014. Adding to an already impressive catalogue, their latest False Youth Etcetera Vol. 1 is an anthemic tour-de-force. The stakes have never been higher for the Florida band. Horns and drums barrel down like thunder, harmonicas and organs hum and flutter, steels cry mournfully in the distance, and vocalist Andrew Shephard effortlessly guides it all home. Make no mistake, this is a complex record with a huge bag of tricks: kits and pads (especially prevelent in intricate intros and outros) are a marked evolution and are deployed with subtlety and precision. A multi-textual work of this magnitude can be born only from obsession, careful and countless hours constructing textures layer by layer, detail by detail. Chances are you’ll be obsessed too.

An early classic this year worth digging into. Grab your nice headphones.


Vince Staples: BagBak

The only things better than Vince Staples’ music are the articulate interviews that he participates in. In between these interviews, however, he consistently releases music that sheds light on just how special this individual is. His selection of instrumentals are becoming increasingly unpredictable which may play a big role in why his fan base is quickly transcending into more of a cult-like following.

“Bagbak”, his latest release, comes just before Staples goes on “The Life Aquatic Tour” alongside Kilo Kish. Listen to it here:


Mura Masa x A$ap Rocky x Four Tet

A version of Mura Masa’s track “Lovesick F*ck” featuring A$ap Rocky and then remixed by Four Tet?? How did I miss this??!

I’m pretty confident you’re gonna like the remix, and I’ve included the video to go along with the it. The video was directed by Yoni Lappin and filmed around Mura Masa’s home in London.

Lucky Beaches New Single: B.O.D.

Los Angeles-based artist, Lucky Beaches just released their third single last week and it’s called “B.O.D.” Originally from the UK, Lucky Beaches moved to the west coast to soak up the vibes in order to create a special variety of indie rock music.

Lucky Beaches sounds similar to the Black Keys or Tame Impala at times, and then it slips into something more chilled and electronic. Then you’ll get a straight up 70s style guitar solo. It’s great. Listen to the first three singles below and keep your eye out for the debut album.
