Today is your lucky day because he is taking you out.

Meg Mac – “Roll Up Your Sleeve”
Jason Bentley has been spinning this track for a few weeks and I absolutely love it.
We were talking about it in the studio and, as he says, “it has an Adele soulfulness, but she totally owns it.”
This Melbourne-based singer is definitely one to watch and this track appears on her self-titled debut EP, out last month.

Seoul – “The …

Last week I was poking around and hit on this video for Tish Hyman’s “Subway Art”.
I was floored.
Even if you didn’t speak English, you could feel what “Subway Art” was about. The pain and vulnerability in her delivery bleed through every note of the song.

Her talent as a rapper and singer are undeniable, then add the fact that there’s a real message in what …

kanaku

When the entire blog community all across South America, hails your debut as one of the best records of the year, it raises insurmountable expectations for a simple Peruvian band trying to play feel good American, folk music in Spanish.

The combination of Amelia Meath’s traditional folk style of singing and Nick Sanborn’s electronic beats, made Sylvan Esso one of the brightest spots of 2014.
Many of us here at the station had their self-titled debut on heavy rotation & H.S.K.T. (Head Shoulder Knees Toes) was one of those songs that just about everyone gravitated towards. It’s just one of those tracks that you just …
