Every week we get a look at the new music you should be listening to. This week music supervisor Morgan Rhodes offers her take. Here are her picks:
Album: MORE LIFE
Toronto's finest is back from what appears sonically to be a trip around the globe. He calls it a playlist - Morgan calls it a travel itinerary - with beats.
This new single, Cure, featured on their forthcoming album, the second since signing with Tru Thoughts Records is more of what fans have come to expect of this musical trio from right here in Southern California.
Jazz inflected future soul and pretty layered vocals. Well worth the wait. The arrangement of the song sounds similar to arrangements by another very cool Southern California alt- soul band.
- THE CACTUS CHANNEL AND SAM CROMACK
Album: DO IT FOR NOTHING - EP
Australian singer Sam Cromack, with the bands Ball Park Music and My Own Pet Radio, teamed up recently with the soul-funk collective, The Cactus Channel.
