The muses of La Musa: Tirzah

Let’s talk about the cause and effect factor encapsulated in Tirzah’s music: if Arca says he loves her songs and admits that he has listened to Devotion 20 times on the run while walking around London with goosebumps, it means that the balance between emotion and experimentation in Tirzah Mastin’s music is simply perfect. If her childhood friend, travel companion and unconditional producer on this first album is Mica Levi, aka Micachu, an exquisite instrumental depth is assured. If in 2010 Tirzah was already militant (“I’m not dancing, I’m fighting”, she sang on her collaboration with Micachu), in 2018 she is empowered: “Don’t raise your voice to me”, she now retorts on Go Now. If her name is the Hebrew word for “she is my delight”, and her first album is called Devotion, and she is compared not only to James Blake and also to D’Angelo, it means that she is not just another artist. If Tirzah has released the most stimulating debut of the year in the UK, we’ll just say it.

Best Covers: James Blake ‘Limit To Your Love’

Though the Feist version of this melancholic folk ballad has plenty of passion and pain, it’s not quite as visceral as the way James Blake plays with the contrast in “Limit To Your Love.” He absolutely rips into the piano, voice vacillating between skating across thin ice and diving in head-first—there’s something about this cover that feels like a first dance and a last dance all at once.

Music by Bergman: SG Lewis

The fertile and prolific alliance between soul and electronic music has found in SG Lewis one of its most recent and outstanding disciples. At the young age of twenty, this Liverpool producer has uncovered a path which travels from James Blake to Disclosure and gives a digital gloss to smooth and velvety R&B. After remixing “You & I (Forever)”, by Jessie Ware, the British artist debuted on PMR Beat Club with “Warm”, his first single was streamed over half a million times in just a few months. At the end of last summer, Lewis followed it up with “Shivers”, an EP on which the warmth of R&B takes on a more avant-garde facet. With growing popularity, at the same time, as a DJ, the British artist has released a second EP .

The muses of La Musa: PAVVLA

Behind PAVVLA we find Paula Jornet, a very young Catalan actress and singer who has found the path that connects the folk-ballad to the James Blake’ smooth electronic music. After settling in Brighton to study at the BIMM, the Sant Cugat artist is preparing her debut that will be released on Luup records at the end of the year, a record from which she has already released the two singles “Young” and “Skin” that go to show that she will be one of the great talents of national pop scene. She will be playing this october at Primavera Club.
