§ I’m still listening to new music and it seems the proximity of SXSW is triggering a cascade of releases. Here are some samples from this week’s listening.
|UK||Need Love||Dr Meaker||Laid back jazz-blues-funk with female vocals, rather than the dance track you might expect.|
|USA||The Deep and Lovely Quiet||SubtractiveLAD||Dreamy, slightly metallic echo-acoustic of the shoe-gaze, Engineers variety. Would not be out of place in a Robert Rich concert.|
|USA||Culpa De La Luna||Rupa and the April Fishes||Pretty delicious stuff – imagine early Madness as world music with female vocals and you’re maybe close|
|USA||Let The Riverrun||Carly Simon||Verging on gospel, this is a great track from Carly Simon as she is now (rather than the blast from the past you usually get from her Best-Of fodder)|
Let me know what you think – I’ll keep listening and if people like the reports I’ll keep posting too.
