Premiere: Little Elizabeth – Pitt St.

Melbourne AU trio Little Elizabeth are one of our favorite new bands. Their silky-smooth mid-tempo jammer “G’day For It” is our opinion one of the best tracks of 2018. “Pitt St.” is Little Elizabeth’s debut release. Not quite an EP but not quite an album, “Pitt St.” is a further delve into the band’s 70’s soul and funk-influenced sound that’s packed full of cooled out grooves and great bits of percussive melody and songwriting. Stream the B3SCI Premiere of Little Elizabeth’s “Pitt St” below.

Klubbhuset – Rehearsal

The great Let’s Play House is the label for new track “Rehearsal” from Klubbhuset. “Rehearsal” is backed by a tightly coiled set of 909’s and a cool R&B vocal sample and it’s one of our favorite dance tracks of the year.

Pip Millett – Love The Things You Do

What a vocal. Pip Millett takes a Lester Duval School of D’Angelo instrumental and just knocks it clear out styling the track with melodic stunner after melodic stunner. Love.

Oscar Jerome – Do You Really

“Do You Really” is the latest stream from UK songwriter Oscar Jerome. Matched to a sound palette that draws in influences from jazz and Brazilian music, “Do You Really” is very well-crafted bit of alt pop that we’re spinning.

Ryan Svendsen – One Hundred Percent (Feat. Jerome Thomas)

We dug last year Ryan Svendsen’s Molly Moore-featuring track “Orange Tree Leaves”. We’re very into Svendsen’s latest offering, “One Hundred Percent”. The track features one of our favorite new vocalists Jerome Thomas and is 3:25 of cooled-out horn-driven R&B. A+++.

Soft Streak – Ride

We’re into the cool blend of honed-in pop songwriting to more swerve-y production choices and non-obvious arranging on “Ride”, new L.A. duo Soft Streak.

[B3SCI Records] Laura Jean Anderson – Love You Most

Out now on B3SCI Records is “Love You Most”, the brand new single from L.A.-based Laura Jean Anderson. The follow-up to “Silence Won’t Help Me Now” (also out on B3SCI) “Love You Most” scales a Winehouse-ian set of sounds for a Fader-approved track headlined by a potent main vocal described as having an orange-yellow glow by BuzzBands.LA.
