Essa - "Evade and Seek"

Just do yourself a favour and put Tall Black Guy in your Google Alert so you never miss a thing he's up to. This collabo with UK emcee Essa just the latest in an unending stream of the goodness.

The Weather Station - "Way It Is, Way It Could Be"

It may be the dead of winter and springs seems like a million miles away, but you should mark your calendar for May 12th. That's when the new Weather Station LP Loyalty comes out on Outside.

Slow Spirit - Bad News EP

This EP just dropped today. I know everyone's going gaga over Father John Misty today, but spare twenty minutes in your music-listening schedule for this Winnipeg band and you'll be rewarded with a great listen.

Nohelani Cypriano - "Lihue"

Just recently discovered this jam after getting into some sweet sounds out of the Hawaiian islands. Apparently Cypriano is the "Hawaiian boogie queen" according to Athens of the North.

GOSTO - "My Bad"

Just heard this on the Bandcamp podcast. Totally in the Chet Faker / Mikky Ekko / Miles Bonny vein.

AmsterDAMN this is good.

Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers - Cranes and Carpets

Kinda reminds me of Karl Hector & The Malcouns, and not just because of the "x & the y" naming convention. This is another German act playing afro-beat inspired funk through a European filter. I suppose there's an argument to be made for cultural appropriation, but it's just too funky to do anything but enjoy it.
