You may have heard the syrupy tones of Jessie Ware before on records by SBTRKT or Joker but we’re not gonna talk about that we’re gonna talk about her voice. And what a voice it is. Ms. Ware’s ability to evoke precise emotion and feeling and still maintain expert phrasing and vocal rhythm is at a level that is truly exceptional. Get (re)familiar below.

LA band Batwings Catwings sort of sound like the b3sci blog distilled into a band. Lovers of punk and metal but with an affinity for top 40 and hip hop BC are definitely b3 kindred. Heavy guitar music with great pop songwriting sensibility gets us really excited. We’re psyched to debut the band’s track for “Early Exit” b/w “Radio” (which you can download here for free).

Slim Thugga (the dude with Houston on his back. Literally, it’s tattoo’d on his back.) drops a tough new track with “Can’t Stop”. Slim AND Spitta both bring top shelf heat to the track but the real showstopper is the beat, which seriously knocks. Get it.

Every once in a while, a great song is recorded that has potential to be timeless. That’s the case with this track from The Features’ Wilderness album. If “Another One” doesn’t become a hit for this band, I hope someone else decides to record it.
