Grab a fistful of Today’s Top Tunes starting with a long awaited track from Foxygen, Wyclef Jean reworks a classic song by The Pharcyde. The man behind Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst returns to his solo roots, we get an infusion of soul from Muddy Magnolias and we welcome Canadian newcomer Hannah Georges.
Foxygen is back with a new single called “America.” It’s the fearless LA duo’s first since 2014 and offers a much bigger sound that includes a 34 piece orchestra!
On this Election Day we turn to Wyclef Jean who reimagines the1992 classic by The Pharcyde with new lyrics reflecting the current political and social climate. It’s time to get out and vote as we share “If I Was President 2016.”
While hibernating in his hometown of Omaha after a decade of living in NYC, Conor Oberst literally returned to his musical roots. He’s created a solo album fueled by late nights at the piano while the snow piled up outside. Today’s Top Tune is “Tachycardia.”
Jessy Wilson and Kallie North met in Nashville where they began an epic friendship and musical collaboration that turned into Muddy Magnolias. The duo’s debut album took a year to write as they combined their stories into an 11 song journey. “Brother, What Happened?” is one of the album’s most soulful tracks.
There have been a lot of great artists coming from Canada lately, including Andy Shauf and Kaytranada. To that list we can add Toronto-based Hannah Georgas who offers textured pop songs like the lush “Evelyn.”
