This week, Today’s Top Tune kicks off with a new song from Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn featuring Corinne Bailey Rae. Tuesday, download new music from Rhye, who have a sold out show at The Orpheum in March. Lucius drops a new album, and has 3 sold out nights at The Largo (March 3 – 5). Dr. Dog has a massive US tour with several stops in SoCal. Friday, get your dance on with De Lux.
Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn returns to her dance floor grooves, as she delivers her first solo album with new songs in 7 years. Joined by Warpaint’s rhythm section and birthday girl Corinne Bailey Rae on backing vocals – “Sister” is a powerful track.
Accolades have been pouring in for Rhye’s latest album, a collection that oozes with their brand of seductive, soul-pop. Singing over a whisper, front man Milosh epitomizes boudoir anthems that beckon with intimate lyrics. Here’s “Feel Your Weight.”
With an acoustic new album dropping this week, the duo known as Lucius spent the bulk of 2017 supporting Roger Waters’ international tour, and even graced our studios with the legendary Daniel Johnston. Now, they kick off their almost sold-out tour with a 3-night stint at the Largo. Listen to the intimate, “Neighbors.”
Scott McMicken has been co-fronting Dr. Dog for the past decade and a half but that doesn’t stop him from feeling like he’s “in a totally new band right now.” Born from a journey of doubt and discovery, their new work finds them closer and stronger. We feel their revitalized style leaning toward The Beatles, with a speck of Ethiopian jazz sprinkled in on “Go Out Fighting.”
L.A. disco-not-disco duo De Lux know how to make us dance with a distinct 80’s synth sound, and a stream of consciousness lyrical style. “Keyboards Cause We’re Black and White” is an ode to a friend.
