Divus Julius presents: PWNT

PWNT, the LA-based dream-pop project of Kosta Galanopoulos, has shared his new single, “Days in the Summer”, which will serve as the title track for his upcoming debut album, out June 25, 2021, via Acrophase Records.

Borrowing his moniker from the Miles Davis quote, “play what’s not there”, PWNT fuses together the worlds of 60s psychedelia, 90s Britpop, and the sounds of 2010-era acts such as Passion Pit and MGMT on his latest single.

Music by Bergman: Peter Broderick

Born in 1987, Peter Broderick is an American-born multi-instrumentalist and singer, brought up in a musical household in Oregon. In his later teenage years he became entwined in the indie folk scene in Portland, recording for the likes of M. Ward, Laura Gibson and Dolorean.

On August 28, 2020 he surprised the world with a drop release of Blackberry, his first vocal based album in over five years. Peter continues to travel the world, performing solo concerts and collaborating with a vast array of different musicians and artists.

Best Covers: Black Pumas ‘Sugar Man’

Black Pumas  released a live performance video featuring a cover of Rodriguez’s “Sugar Man.” The band led by Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada initially issued “Sugar Man” in January as part of their first ever Spotify Singles recordings.

Rodriguez wrote and recorded “Sugar Man” back in 1969. The song is featured on the Detroit native’s debut studio album, 1970’s Cold Fact. “Sugar Man” is Rodriguez’s signature tune with a 2012 documentary about the singer-songwriter entitled Searching For Sugar Man.

Introducing…Caleb Landry Jones

Caleb Landry Jones is a continual creator. The Texan born star found fame as an actor – recently won best actor at Cannes Palme D’Or 2021 for his lead role in Nitram – but music is perhaps his first love, and his source of greatest comfort.

Set to release on September 24, 2021 Gadzooks Vol. 1 exists in a completely different realm from Caleb’s debut album. Ranging from spider-like wisps of neo-psychedelia through to vast swathes of synthetic chords, it’s a record that moves from joy to despair, from horror to glib humor.

4Ever Songs: Luther Vandross “Never Too Much”

In 1980 Luther Vandross became better known as the guest vocalist for the studio group Change with the hit songs “The Glow of Love” and “Searching.” Around the same time, he took his solo demos to Larkin Arnold and Jerome Gasper, executives with Epic Records. Vandross immediately got a record deal to write and produce his own albums. “Never Too Much” became his first hit single, topping the R&B charts and two years later charting in the UK at #44. The Never Too Much album went on to sell over 2 million copies.
