After dropping the EP "Broken Vibes" a few years back, Taylor McFerrin had been laying low, making a few appearances here and there while putting together his long awaited LP. Well the wait is over, "Early Riser" is future music filled with a touch of jazz, soul and electronic rhythms. There's an eclectic list of contributors like Nai Palm, RYAT and none other than Bobby McFerrin himself. Check out the lovely "Decisions" featuring Emily King and do rush over Brainfeeder to purchase.
Credit Jose James for crafting muisc without boundaries. "His latest release "While You Were Sleeping" is slightly left of his previous release but just as engaging. Guest contributors include Becca Stevens, Kris Bowers and more. Check out "4 Noble Truths" and head over to purchase here.
When I discovered that Sorceress is the group formerly known as Funkomunity I almost lost it. "Chequered Thoughts", the group's first album dropped in 2012 and easily was one of my favorites of the year. They are back with their follow up titled "Dose" and they are picking up right where they left off. "Dose" is filled with soulful,Afro rthythms weaved into their own style. This has been in heavy rotation and I know you'll feel the same way. Listen to "Teacups" and go cop this joint from bandcamp here!
