Born in Liverpool and based in Manchester, electronic psych folk artist Jane Weaver is – and has practically always been – steeped in the ether of musical history.
From her early 90s Britpop project to her current female folk minded record label Bird, Weaver has long been part of a musical family that includes Badly Drawn Boy, (her partner) Andy Votel, doves, Elbow and Cate Le Bon. Recently, …

Many KCRW fans are gearing up to see buzz-worthy UK future-funk group Jungle at the Fonda this Friday, as well they should. But I also recommend getting there a little early, as fellow countrymen Beaty Heart make an appearance on these shores as the opening act for the show.
Fresh from the summertime festival circuit, including the acclaimed Bestival on the Isle of Wight, the …

Hiss Golden Messenger: Artist You Should Know

I may be a little late to the game as I’m just discovering Hiss Golden Messenger on their 5th album, “The Lateness of Dancers”, out now on Merge Records. It’s the band’s first record for the famed label and I fell fast and hard on my first listen.
The fact that I warmed to it so quickly doesn’t surprise me since it features Phil and …

Barely 18 years old and having already been the subject of a recent New York Times profile and hand-picked as the opener for Outkast‘s big homecoming show in Atlanta this month, the buzz surrounding Raury throughout the summer has reached a deafening roar. (Editor’s Note: He’s featured on a track by SBTRKT released today)
The release of Raury‘s debut album, “Indigo Child“, seems to mostly …

Alright, I’ll admit it; the first time I heard “Club Goin Up On A Tuesday” by iLoveMakonnen a few weeks ago, I didn’t quite know what to make of it.
The beat by Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin with its whirring church organs and beatdown bass was undeniably on point, but Makonnen’s quirky delivery threw me for a loop.
Then, one night, having not heard heard …

The Black Madonna: Artist You Should Know

Posted September 4, 2014 by | 1 Comment | 1,010 views]
blackmadonna

As aliases go, I can’t quite think of a better, more awesome name than The Black Madonna.
Evocative in a dozen different ways, it befits Chicago DJ/Producer Marea Stamper.
Apart from being that rarest of mythical creatures, “a woman DJ/producer” she also just actually happens to do it better than most (regardless of gender.) Her style rips through a whole spectrum of sounds from disco to techno to house with …

Sinkane: Artist You Should Know

sinkane

I knew next to nothing about Sinkane before Labor Day weekend started.
I’d casually heard a few songs on our airwaves and saw his name on our charts, but it wasn’t until I dug in that I realized what I had been missing.
I had a few hours to kill during a leisurely vacation in Colorado and streamed “Mean Love”, his latest release out this week …

Joel Hood: Artist You Should Know

Hailing from North Yorkshire, producer Joel Hood creates blissfully melancholic electronic pop that is both as big as a sunset and personal as a whisper. His work sounds like the work of a person who listened to nothing but Air France for months, because he did. The CD got stuck in his car player and what was probably initially really frustrating became an immersive experience …

The Khun Narin Electric Phin Band: Artist You Should Know

Local producer and studio wizard Josh Marcy is a righteous dude.
An unassuming and generally beatific kind of dude, you’d have to twist his arm to get him to tell you about being DJ Harvey’s engineer.
But that’s seemingly not his trip anyways, for a true head like Marcy, the trip is the trip.
And that literally and figuratively has resulted in the release of one of the most unique world …

Silk Rhodes: Artist You Should Know

One morning I was going through my iTunes and I got a message from Peanut Butter Wolf, founder and honcho over at Stones Throw, with an mp3 from a band that he was excited about.
It was the perfect song that I needed to hear at that moment.
It was the ultimate break up song complete with a haunting organ, wah wah guitar and strings with …
