opez | dead dance


Describing their style as „Latin Desert & Funeral Party“ music, Opez clearly go their own special way. But listen to the debut album „Dead Dance“ and you will find that this path is quite an exciting one. Set in a haunting environment of acoustic instruments and an expertly stylish production, the twelve songs recorded by Italian musicians Massi Amadori and Francesco Tappi are a journey into a twilight world of emotion and imagination.

With additional musicians like Fabio Paglierani, an expert in dub who brings a echoing twist to the sultry groove of „Adriatica“ and „Carlos Primero“ or Fabio „Mocambo“ Tozzi who puts „Estelita“, „Diavolanza“, „Malinco“ and „Libre“ into an authentic Fifties environment “Dead Dance” is a band affair. The vocals of Annalisa Bartolini on „Carlos Primero“ and „Sangoda“, as well as Dimitri „Didi“ Mazzs on „Malinco“, add to the complete picture.

Out on Agogo Records, available at Bandcamp, HHV or iTunes. Stream the entire album below …

rise up


Low Leaf dropped a new track lifted from her upcoming album. “‘Rise Up’ is a vibratory message of restoration and empowerment to the collective Filipino psyche. In an effort to de-colonize, cleanse, and heal the wounds of history & recent natural disasters, the time is ripe now, more than ever, for the Filipino spirit to be reborn in full form. As the divine generation, our ancestors that have lived and died for us to co-create our culture through music & art are speaking through us, and guiding our hearts to a new awakening. So, people of the world – how we gonna rise up?” „AKASHAALAY“ is entirely written and produced by Low Leaf, available on April 29th on Fresh Selects.

morning phase


You can now listen to „Blue Moon“, the first song to be taken from Beck’s forthcoming album „Morning Phase“, which is set for release on February 24. Speaking about the album previously, Beck told Rolling Stone: „I’m just fumbling around with chords and a mood. The songs are coming out of a California tradition. I’m hearing The Byrds, Crosby Stills and Nash, Gram Parsons, Neil Young – the bigger idea of what that sound is to me.“ He added: „There’s this feeling of tumult and uncertainty, getting through that long, dark night of the soul – whatever you want to call it. These songs were about coming out of that – how things do get better.“ ‚Morning Phase‘ is Beck’s first album in six years, coming after ‚Modern Guilt‘ in 2008. Pre-order „Morning Phase“ on iTunes.

the stepkids

the stepkids

The Stepkids are three singer/songwriters. “A lot of what excites us
about this band is this band itself,” says bassist and keyboardist
Dan Edinberg. “It’s not either of us; it’s about creating an entity where
the entity itself is what’s important.”
As a result, every song on the
Stepkids self-titled debut album is written with equal input from each
member. Coming on Stones Throw in April.
