Oooooohhh…I missed this in my inbox yesterday! I LOVE Mocky. More mixes to come….
Who can forget Jack Peñate‘s video a couple years back for “Spit At Stars”, those dancing shoes gliding effortlessly across the floor. Seamlessly blending Afro-beat and Caribbean influences to his already winning indie formula, his latest album will still keep you dancing…the only difference? You just might find yourself throwing a little more hip action in there now.
Unless you have been sleeping under a rock, I’m sure you have been hearing tracks from Little Dragon‘s new album, Machine Dreams, being played everywhere. It’s about damn time too, considering the lack of attention their self-titled debut album received. A little more upbeat and electronic than their first release, it still packs the same jazzy and ethereal feel that you fell in love with the first time around. Don’t sleep on this one.
I’m pretty familiar with Lorette Fleur, but this Dwilt Sharpp fella is totally new to me. A newbie to Paris’ Favorite Recordings (Onra, Mr. Day), you can be sure that Sharpp will be supplying plenty more of these funky and soulful tracks in the future.
