Song of the Day: “Things (Part 1)” by Ephemerals

Just heard about Ephemerals over at bamalovesoul. I’ve listened through the album once and it’s really consistent. The first and last tracks are my favorites so far. I have the feeling that this will grow on me even more over time. The album is “name your price” and came out halloween day.

“Ephemerals is a London based soul team featuring an allstar cast of musicians from Keke Mokoro, Gene Dudley Group, Dakhla, Kalakuta Millionaires, Marvelous & Bombs. They are fronted by the Franglo-American sensation Wolf, who was born and raised in New York before moving to Paris when he was 14.”

Song of the Day: “All We Can” by Yumi And The Weather

Yumi And The Weather (Brighton, England) released her All We Can EP October 21st on XVI. This EP contains a previous song of the day.

Yumi And The Weather is the wavy seaside guitar-electronica & rhythmically led pop of Ruby Taylor.

In the autumn of 2012 she self-produced her first released track ‘Not Again’ at home in Brighton and put it online. Coupled with remixes from Ambassadeurs, Manni Dee & FleshCat, the perking of ears was not late to follow as the tracks were picked up by the likes of 22TRACKS, XLR8R, The Line Of Best and DIY among others. A video for her 2013 follow-up single ‘Must I Wait’ attracted further intrigue to her idiosyncratic DIY pop.

Comprising of these two singles and a brand new track in the shimmering, bass-heavy ‘All We Can’, the eponymous debut EP is an impressive introduction to Yumi And The Weather’s equally catchy and thoughtful sound, bringing together her own brand of lo-fi beach garage with atmospheric synths & richly layered melodies.

Denitia and Sene. (NYC) On The Main Ingredient November 12th!

Denitia and Sene., who’s excellent His and Hers. LP has been featured on this site and my show several times, will come by the EVR studio Monday night to talk about their album and share what they are listening to right now.

About Denitia and Sene.:

Smooth like smoke from the tip of a Cuban cigar, and as sensuous as morning love, electro-soul duo denitia & sene not only exude sexy through their music, they invent it. The Brooklyn-based musicians came together a year ago with a shared vision to bring truth and ingenuity to stylistic music, and they’ve held their ambitions high ever since. Simple. Rare. Sumptuous. Bold. They’ve been influenced by a range of sonic proclivities. Thus, their work is distinguished not by genre, but attention to free verse, and the magic that transpires between darkness and light. It’s film noir for audiophiles – chic, hip and alluring – and together, they have broken down personal limits to forge a bond surpassing all expectations.

In true Brooklyn custom, the two artists met while attending a party one night at a spot they refer to as the “The Clubhouse,” an old Victorian home serving as a residence, community space, and recording studio for a collective of local artists. Sene, a rapper, was looking for someone to sing hooks on his new album, and denitia, a singer-songwriter, welcomed the challenge. He gave her the scratch vocals; she nailed it and then some; and suddenly, they were part of the New York fairytale so many artists call a dream. It’s Brooklyn at its finest – it’s serendipity. It’s denitia & sene.

After their initial collaboration went better than expected, denitia & sene decided to take it one step further and form a twosome, allowing sene, a Brooklyn native, to tap into his musical skills beyond hip hop, and denitia to explore a more sultry, theatrical side of her character. Both were inspired by a variety of artists and backgrounds, listing Sade, the Fugees, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, The Beatles, and Janet Jackson as a few of their shared favorites. Such diversity is reflected in the dynamism of their own sound, from smooth bass lines and reverberating vocals to synth-laden blues and abbreviated narratives. It’s kind of like nothing else out there, and that is the intention.

denitia and sene’s first EP, blah blah blah was released in August and presented by OkayPlayer.com, a three-track assortment blending definitive soul with electronic bebop. Their track “Casanova” won the attention of many music tastemasters, with Fader magazine calling it “an effortless, snuggly gem primed for late Saturday mornings tangled in rumpled covers.” Because their partnership has been effortless and magical from the get, they intend to continue down the same track, aiming to create authentic and intuitive music that is accessible to a wide variety of people. No fronts and no concessions – it follows only the rules they set for themselves, compromising nothing that might contradict their signature sweet panache. Their debut album released in early 2013 at #11 on the iTunes R&B charts. denitia and sene. have a brand new record slated for winter 2014 and will continue to tour the US, Europe, and abroad.

Song of the Day: “So Fine” by Pomo

Pomo (Montreal) posted this track to his soundcloud (with a link to a free mediafire download) in late September.
