5 brand new releases we can’t wait to share with you this month:
- 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.
- Leonard Cohen Popular Problems (Columbia) – There aren’t too many 80 year old artists, who are still creating amazing music.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
