New album Canary by Astro Tan

2017-03-22 05:47:08 UTC

New

Astro Tan is a three-piece out of Portland, Oregon, who hail from opposing corners of the continent; they call rural Pennsylvania, urban Seattle, and remote Alaska their homes, respectively. Perhaps their trans-continental allows for what is a genre-bending songbook that places foot in no strict stylistic camp. Primary songwriting responsibilities oscillate between Charles Tern and Sam Wegman (bass and guitars) and an exacting drummer in Jed Overly (also a songwriter). Astro Tan is freshly attune to their creative ambitions, ostensibly due to a mélange of classic and contemporary influences. 'Soma', the freshman effort from the group, demonstrated a keen affinity for lush R&B, soft-jazz and psychedelia. Their latest, just-released album, 'Canary', brings this to the next level with moody orchestral additions.

Safe to say Becoming Phill is the only southern African electro/funk/boogie producer in the game right now. He won a Namibian Music Award a few years back for some hiphop records then went straight into this kind of sound, and here’s the album – Electrum. It’s a mix of electro, funk & r&b that is doing very well on the dancefloors in Namibia right now. It features vocals from Namibian singers Shishani and Dantago, and guitar from Christian Polloni, who has worked with Papa Wemba and Youssou N’Dour.

New single - Forgiven by Marga Lane

2016-11-12 07:37:50 UTC

Unnamed 2

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marga Lane creates authentic and heartfelt songs with an emotional rawness rarely found in music today. Upon graduating from the esteemed Berklee College of Music in Boston, native New Yorker, Lane moved to Los Angeles to further pursue a career as a professional recording artist and songwriter.

In 2015, Marga Lane began compiling what would be her most ambitious and personal project to date, a five-track story of love and loss. “I write a lot of love songs and love is synonymous with belief. I would hope my music inspires people to have a belief in the power of love. Whether it's love for yourself or love for another. You can believe that you are meant to be with a certain person or believe that you can overcome circumstances because you love yourself enough to,” confides Lane. Musically, the forthcoming EP entitled Undressed is powerful in its simplicity and an anomaly in a world dominated by overly produced music. Undressed, which was produced by fellow Berklee alumni Matt Bobb, showcases raw acoustic guitar, soulfully layered vocals and distinctive melodies.

Opening single “Thinking About You” begins with upbeat jazz guitar and features Motown inspired vocals. The song is a celebration of love in its truest form, a new relationship and the hope and bliss that accompany it. While “Forgiven” takes on a more sullen and melancholic tone, a beautiful ballad of regret featuring Lane’s stunning vocals.

Marga Lane has found success touring throughout the US including performing at fashion weeks and singing the national anthem at over 10 NBA and MLB games. She has enjoyed the support from popular recording stars and industry veterans including Lance Bass who featured her on his SiriusXM radio show “Dirty Pop”. Marga Lane is looking forward to the next chapter in her exciting musical journey.

Undressed is set for release December 2nd, 2016 worldwide.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
