Soul singer Bobby Caldwell and producer Jack Splash just teamed up to create a really cool duo, with a really cool name, Cool Uncle. And what’s even more cool here is their new single, Break Away, with some lovely contribution from Jessie Ware. The full album will be out November 13 and I’m pretty convinced it will be f*cking cool!
New song from Blood Orange is a masterpiece of its kind. The atmospheric ambient filled with smoky sax, jazzy piano and dreamy synth makes a perfect background for an important message. In the lyrics, Dev Hynes talks about racism. violence and the Charleston massacre. 11 minutes of a very personal, touching and beautiful track. Worth listening.
Swedish synthpop band, Little Dragon, have shared the first of two music videos for ‘Klapp Klapp’, which is the lead single from their forthcoming album, ‘Nabuma Rubberband’. Zombie-themed, supernatural video was directed by Taylor Cohen. Nabil, the creative director of this clip, will also take care of the second one.
‘Nabuma Rubberband’ is the first quartet’s LP after 2011’s ‘Ritual Union’. The record will be out May 13 in the U.S. and May 12 in the UK.
