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 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.
Song of the Day: “So Fine” by Pomo
Song of the Day: “Time” by Benny Tones
Benny Tones (Wellington, New Zealand) released this single, featuring Alby Love aka Louis Baker on vocal, Tuesday. His page says this is “the first single to be released by Benny Tones in his next series of works” so I hope that means there is more on the way soon. If you missed his excellent Chrysalis album, stop listening to whatever you are listening to.
