Sounds on Sunday (15)

More diverse new sounds to wake up your Sunday – thanks to all contributors. Have a listen and let me know what you think, in the comments below – please also mention any new music you’d like to share. Details as follows:

Delafaye – Rain: Another from Delafaye, “The moniker of Andrew Shockley, Delafaye, recorded and produced ‘’Rain” by himself at home on a 32-track recorder and computer in a small apartment over an art studio next to a bar called the hilltop tavern in Louisville, Kentucky, which is where he is from. It’s the final single to be taken from new forthcoming debut EP ‘The Hilltop’, which (will be) released on new London based label Street Mission Records (distributed through [PIAS]) on January 27th 2017.”

Brentron – Heat Soaked: “I’m a 24 y/o producer/singer/songwriter from Toronto. Although people have tried to put my music in a genre, most can’t because it really is something different, although for ease it can be called “Heavy Electronic Pop”. I played all kinds of instrument growing up and in different bands, although once I started producing electronic music at 20, I pretty much dropped everything else (including dropping out of University because of my obsession with music). I’ve been doing a lot of live shows in the underground Toronto music scene over the past year. I try to do 2 a month (which is pretty much just me plugging in my laptop to an AUX cable into a P.A. system and singing live over the top because I’m not much of a DJ).”

SNØ – Prologue: …”debut EP from the Helsinki based SNØ. He recently won the “breakthrough artist of 2017” vote of YleX, the Finnish equivalent of BBC. In addition to getting recognised as a great songwriter he is getting well known for not giving interviews, or liking those long pitches and biographies. So, without any further A’s B’s or C’s, here the music!”

Comrade Hat – Go to Waste: “”Go to Waste” is a tribute to the simple joy of wallowing for half-awake 3AM dreamers.” … “Comrade Hat is the project of Neil Burns (based out of Londonderry, UK), whose new mini-album ‘Old Amsterdam’ was released this month – This all follows a year which saw Neil’s star rise considerably, with airplay on national radio North and South An Taobh Tuathail (RTE RnaG), Electric Mainline (BBC Radio Foyle) and RTE 2XM), in addition to acclaim online; Neil was selected to represent Ireland in the global Music Alliance Pact for May 2015 by James Hendicott (Golden Plec), nominations by PureM magazine for ‘Best EP’ and ‘Best Act’ and slots at Hard Working Class Heroes and Canadian Music Week.”

Squired and Minit – Awake: “I wanted to share with you our latest release. With his debut single, ‘Right On Time,’ the solo project Squired received notable support from This Song Slaps, and (artist) CRNKN… showing true potential and ability to create a vibe. Today he’s premiered his new collaboration alongside producer Minit, called ‘Awake.’ ‘Awake’ is about as emotional as a trap banger can get. With rich chords, and an shattering drop, it’s guaranteed to wake you up out of bed. That, and Minit rips a guitar solo over the second drop that’s guaranteed to make you feel.“

Robert Randolph & The Family Band  – Love Do What It Do: … “Video for their new song “Love Do What It Do” HERE. The video, set in a pool hall, features Randolph and his band along with country superstar Darius Rucker, (Hootie and the Blowfish) who lends his vocals to the song. “Love Do What It Do” is the first single from Randolph’s forthcoming studio album Got Soul (Sony Music Masterworks) set for release on February 17th. This is the fifth studio album by the virtuosic pedal-steel phenom and genre-busting Family Band. Got Soul also features songs with special guests Anthony Hamilton and Cory Henry.”

Daryl Donald – Solitude: “My name’s Daryl, I’m a musician from Edinburgh, Scotland. I’ve just released my debut instrumental LP ‘Solitude’ and I’d love to hear what you think of it if you get the chance. Inspirations – J Dilla, Madlib, Pete Rock, Portishead, Bjork, Flying Lotus, Massive Attack. Genre – Post Hip Hop, Hip Hop Instrumental, Neo Soul, Jazz-Fusion.”

Oparu (Dianna S. Hilaire) – Remember Me: Los Angeles based songwriter, singer and actress – originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, St. Hilaire started to write and perform music at a very young age in choir and musicals. Self taught, her first instrument was the piano … in her late teens she began performing with punk bands and for producers as a back up/ studio vocalist in New Mexico, where she took on her first musical alias, the highly successful group Versailles. Partnering with the infamous Kim Fowley (The Runaways, Kiss, Joan Jett, Alice Cooper), she has toured the US extensively, been featured on the official Grammy ballots, as well as charting on Billboard.”

Stefie Shock, ft. Laurence Nerbonne – Comment te dire adieu: Stefie Shock, a Québécois singer-songwriter “delivers a brand new video for his song Comment te dire adieu (“How to say farewell” in French) in which Laurence Nerbonne answers to his low key voice in the naive style of Françoise Hardy. Comment te dire adieu was first released as part of Stefie’s album 12 belles dans la peau, which is a moving tribute to France’s Serge Gainsbourg. 12 belles dans la peau is produced in the style of Gainsbourg by Stefie Shock himself (who plays almost the entirety of the recorded instruments) and with the help of Mathieu Dandurand, his old-time acolyte.”

A Cunning Man – Practical Applications of Theurgy: One-man metal project exploring occult themes, Ged Cartwright aka ‘A Cunning Man‘ has a debut EP, ‘Practical Applications Of Theurgy‘ which was released on 01/01/2017. It fuses a variety of Metal styles with an experience shaped by Scottish life. Additional vocals and spoken word provided by Gemma McCabe.

  1. Still catching up with the new music here and on Songbar. Have only had a listen once through here so far. Nothing that jumped out at me but will try to return for another go.
