Roane Namuh & Reva DeVito – Frozen

We love this. New duo Roane Namuh & Reva DeVito offer up something-fresh a take on RnB and soul. There’s a chemistry on their latest Cloudshine release. The album track “Frozen” is especially drenched in sultriness with a digable nod to the ’93 Top 15 (Billboard 100) “Rebirth of Slick”. Cloudshine is available to stream at their BandCamp. Give it a spin thru.

Martin Solveig – The Night Out (Live at Studio Ferber)

Martin Solveig just dropped this live 25 piece orchestra version of his smash “The Night Out”. This tune has longer legs than they make pants. Even at that we still can’t get enough.

Capitol 6 – Cold Ride

“Cold Ride” is the new single from fab five outfit Capitol 6 by way of Vancouver. The track harkens back to psych-pop and all of it’s glory with a tambourine friendly A/B structure and refrain hook worthy of any record collection.

Euros Childs – Spin That Girl Around

There’s something reborant about Welsh songwriter Euros Childs new recording of “Spin That Girl Around”. There’s a whimsical quality to it, something intoxicating that we just can’t get out of our heads. As Euros puts it “… it was bugging me that there wasn’t a studio recording of the band version, so for peace of mind I recorded this version and thought it would make a good single”. And indeed it does. You can download the track over at his site here. Also worth noting, the former Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci frontman is currently putting finishing touches on his 8th solo album Summer Special which is expected this August on his own label, National Elf.

Azealia Banks – 1991

We’re not totally sure how we feel about this new Azealia Banks EP. Of the EP’s three new tracks, the 90’s house-styled title track is the definite standout. OK.
