Heard and Felt Music presents another compilation album, “Stylin’ 600″, presented by Melbourne’s favorite radio icon Ennio Styles. There’s music on there from Heavy, Sampha, Brandee Younger, ChromodaData and DuFrayne. Best part is that it’s a free download in celebration of 600 episodes and 12 years of Stylin’.
It’s been too long since we heard some new music from one of L.A.’s sexiest saxophonists Terrace Martin, but just when we were getting slighty nervous his latest single, “No Wrong No Right”, came floating our direction. This is of his upcoming “3ChordFold” LP which is slated to drop August 13. Martin shows how sometimes in relationships, no one wants to admit their wrongs. The single is available on iTunes now so act accordingly.
Now I’ve known Jameszoo for a while and am glad to write a little something about his “Jheronimus” EP out on Rwina Records. His inspiration for Jheronimus comes from the work of Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch (born Jheronimus), who was known for his fantastical paintings. A perfect fit, since Jameszoo’s music is equally fantastical and very much out there. I’m glad he gave this one some soulful twists. Take a listen to my favorite pick “Poek” and pick up the 10″ vinyl if you like what you hear!
It’s not often that we are super excited about artists, but it happens now and again. The super trio King was one of the last bands that really caught our attention. Get ready to fall in love with another trio (Max, Andris, and Amber) that goes by the name of Moonchild. They all met at USC where they studied jazz performance. After touring together as a horn section in 2011, they began co-writing and recording their first album “Be Free”, which they released this April. We almost missed out on this amazing band, but luckily the homey Blue tipped us. Earlier this month DJ Jazzy Jeff and James Poyser remixed the title track, which is available as a ‘name your price’ download. Very happy there’s still some musical gems out there to be found!
Los Angeles’ bassist/songwriter/vocalist Stephen Bruner, better known as, Thundercat is gettin’ ready for the “Apocalypse”. His style is best described as a mix of indie rock and jazz, with a touch of electronic soul. On his second album Thundercat pairs up with executive producer Flying Lotus and goes deep into styles we aren’t really into. However we are diggin’ the imrpov recorded “Seven” a lot, so decided to post this one. Might be a killer album for some, so make sure you take some time to check it on iTunes.
You might have heard funky flute player Han Litz before on Seravince’s “Hear To See” album. Congratulations are in order for today he released his debut album “Epiphany” digitally. This Jazz Fusion album has all sorts of influences ranging from Funk to Brazil. Make sure you give it a listen and buy on iTunes if you’re into Jazz music!
Last week Hit + Run released volume 3 of their “Road Kill” compilation series which contains 25 exclusive & unreleased songs from Dexter Story, fLako, Teebs, Salva, Devonwho, Kutmah, Sonnymoon and many others. Enjoy Dexter Story’s “Everything” and don’t forget to support and purchase the CD or digest some digital goodness.
We’d like to congratulate Vincent aka Seravince with the 1st official single of his upcoming “Hear To See” album. Some of you might know Vince under his former Flowriders moniker. Seravince is all about being true to yourself and sticking to your guns. A lot of time and effort was put into this project and we are proud to be able to bring you quality music such as “U Love” featuring Renee Neufville. You might have heard an early version of this before, but the final mixdown sounds so much better. Please note that this ‘name your price’ free download will be available in limited quantities, but in case you’d like to donate a little something you are most welcome to do so. Hear To See will be available on CD in Japan tomorrow so look for the Japan edition with that sexy obi strip in your local Japanese music shop. A worldwide release is slated for December…right on time for Christmas!
