Music of the Moment:

Close Up Needle on Record

November 7, 2014 - 6:54 pm

5 brand new releases we can’t wait to share with you this month:

  1. Etana I Rise  (VP) – In Swahili, Etana translates to ‘The Strong One’, which is an apt name for a female artist in the male dominated genre of Reggae music. 
  2. Leonard Cohen  Popular Problems  (Columbia) – There aren’t too many 80 year old artists, who are still creating amazing music.
  3. Nikki Yanofsky  Little Secret  (A440) – A young Canadian who has worked with Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Phil Ramone and others, Nikki’s sophomore release is produced by Quincy Jones.
  4. Becky Buller  ‘Tween Earth and Sky  (Dark Shadow) – This is Becky’s first solo recording in 10 years, and it is certainly worth the wait. 
  5. Red Martina  Come On Home  (Badtape) – 2nd release from this superb downtempo hip-hop band out of Philly who avoids the infamous sophomore slump. Haley Cass’s vocals are really great and the whole album should have wide crossover appeal.
