OutKast’s blend of gritty Southern soul, fluid raps, and the low-slung funk of their Organized Noize production crew epitomized the Atlanta wing of Hip Hop’s rising force, the Dirty South, during the mid to late ’90s.
Andre 3000 composed the track in 1999 and was even going to include it on Stankonia (2000), but the recording had to be postponed. The song had several working titles, including Thank God for Mom and Dad (“Thank God for mom and dad”).
A-ha have returned with their new album and film, ‘True North’,This film also include a special behind-the-scenes featurette, exclusive to cinemas.
The original idea for True North was for the Norwegian trio, formed of Morten Harket, Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and Magne Furuholmen, to record their first session in the wonderous studio location just 90km above the Arctic Circle then to film it. Eventually, the project expanded into more of a production, and they were joined by the talented Norwegian Orchestra, Arctic Philharmonic. What spawned from these sessions is a magnificent album, and film to match, that details the band’s vision of a collective connection to the environment.
Since their worldwide breakthrough with ‘Take On Me’ in 1985, a-ha have continued to adapt and evolve. Now, with what is both their 11th studio album and the documentation of its creation, a-ha have entered a new phase.
The Haunted Youth is the band centred around 29-year-old Joachim Liebens from Hasselt, Belgium, allowing him to channel his innermost feelings into music and lyrics. Liebens writes songs to dream away to, wrapping them in a rich and velvety sound, echoing the beguiling shoegaze of Slowdive, the lulling dream pop of Beach House and the downtempo indie rock of Current Joys.
The Haunted Youth have released their debut album, Dawn Of The Freak, to the world. A product of the last two years, the album symbolises everything Joachim represents. The record is an autobiographical portrayal of the highs and lows of life, it’s a documentation of feeling displaced in the world, but most importantly, it’s a symbol for finding somewhere that feels like home.
Ondara offers a unique take on the American dream on Tales of America, his debut album. Ondara grew up in Nairobi, Kenya, listening to American alt-rock and making up his own songs for as long as he can remember. After discovering the music of Bob Dylan, he moved to Minneapolis in 2013 to pursue a career in music. There he began making his way in the local music scene, continually writing songs about what he saw, felt and experienced in a place far different from home.
The musician known as Ondara has died many deaths. He has shed multiple stage names—Jay Smart, J.S. Ondara—and departed several homes. In fact, one of his most popular songs is called “Saying Goodbye.” Two months ago she released his new album, “Spanish Villager: No. 3,”
Jockstrap recreate the feeling of a teenager discovering dubstep for the first time in 2010. The kind of music that far out-accelerates brain waves, leaving you dizzy and confounded after the track’s end.
Formed by jazz violinist Georgia Ellery (who also plays with Black Country, New Road) and electronic producer Taylor Skye, each of the duo’s songs contain twisted and minced up influences and turns them into something possibly unlike anything else you’ve heard before. Something vomit-inducingly fun.
Following the release of her third album ‘Home Video’ last year, Lucy Dacus is covering two songs from Carole King, sharing her take on ‘Tapestry’ tracks ‘Home Again’ and ‘It’s Too Late’.
