New record from Jungle released a week ago! Check 'em out live at the Paramount Friday October 22nd. https://www.junglejunglejungle.com/ KEXP's "Midnight In A Perfect World" featured a mix from Jungle on August 18th! Check it out: https://www.kexp.org/read/2021/8/18/midnight-perfect-world-jungle/ “‘All Of The Time’ explores loss and spirituality, the passing of time and the feeling of growing apart from someone close to you,” they explain. “These themes are juxtaposed with the euphoric nature of the track which sonically challenges you to accept and grow through positivity in body and soul.” https://bit.ly/3kskvF1

This London artist’s second solo album is a gorgeous-sounding set of atmospheric R&B incorporating elements of gospel, jazz, orchestral pop and other styles. Produced by fellow Sault member Inflo, the album features a sometimes lush, sometimes spare sound on occasionally shape-shifting songs ranging from airy, sunshine-soaked R&B and soaring, gospel-steeped ballads to some moody jazz-funk.

Rolling Stones says "Focus" is all about Charli’s pop-princess prowess. It is an unrepentant earworm, with that trademark XCX style of delivering an almost cruelly addictive, simple chorus. Read the full review here: https://bit.ly/34FO3W3

Durand Jones & the Indications will play the Paramount Theatre (with My Morning Jacket) in Seattle on Friday, October 1st & Saturday, October 2nd. -- “Witchoo” is a light-as-a-feather funk number powered by Mike Montgomery’s wiggly bassline, and Aaron Frazer and Durand Jones’ engaging high/low vocal harmonies, all imbued with a quiet, but unmistakable confidence.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7vTtnevlO4

Inspired by the likes of Primal Scream and Pink Floyd ‘Sympathy For Life’ (out on October 22nd) is, according to co-frontman Austin Brown, “influenced by the party."

This song is released ahead of their first new album in six years and their own 40th anniversary. John Taylor said about their new track: “Anniversary” is a special song for us. Obviously we were conscious of our own impending 40th anniversary of making music together, but we wanted the song’s meaning to be inclusive in the broadest possible way."

Black Wagon
by Babalu
(10 plays) | (0 fans)

This is the first track released ahead of London-based musician Baba Ali’s debut album. Originally hailing from New Jersey, he revealed the inspiration behind the title of the song: "Where I live in London, my window faces the high street and I’m not too far from a church. In the autumn there were a lot of funerals, and the horse and carriage procession would often come down the street. It’s quite an arresting image; it feels like it’s from a different era. That’s the “black wagon”, and the rest of the lyrics are me reminiscing about the feeling of going to raves and coming home at sunrise…" Keep an ear out for the debut album “Memory Device” produced and recorded with Al Doyle (LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip) in East London.

This track samples several musical compositions, including the keyboard component of The Who's song "Baba O'Riley," the organ from the introduction to the Deep Purple song "Child in Time," a drum break from Tommy Roe's "Sweet Pea," drums and guitars from a break in Pigmeat Markham's "Here Comes the Judge," a line from The Sugarhill Gang's song "Rapper's Delight" where Big Bank Hank raps "a time to laugh, a time to cry," and a vocal sample from Peter Sellers in Fred Flange's song "You Keep Me Swingin,'" where Sellers talks about "rhythm and melody."
