Many moons ago we did an interview spotlight with this pretty nifty artist named Oliver Grimball, an American wordsmith based in Barcelona. Below is the super new video for his single ‘Exploitation Cantata’, taken from his first LP entitled ‘Anodyne Holiday’.
Grimball is currently working on a 2nd album, ‘The Life and Times of Herman Lieserstein’ which is to be release later this year…pretty excited to hear this record, but for now you can check out new music from Mister Grimball over here – https://soundcloud.com/olivergrimball
VOK have been creating some pretty lovely, soulful, electronic music for little over a year. Not too long ago the band signed to The Musebox, and now plan to release their debut EP entitled ‘Tension’ on October 21st, 2014.
I just listened to the tracks of said release and am pleasantly surprised…Yes there are the hushed, smooth vocals the Icelandic folk are renowned for, but these vocals are supported by some super nifty, experimental beats and sweet sax/guitar driven melodies.
WE FIRST HEARD SHANAZ’ LOVELY VOCALS ON THE NEW SINGLE ‘BUS’, A TUNE RECENTLY DROPPED BY ONE OF BLOGGERTRONIX’ FAVE LONDON BASED BANDS BENIN CITY. THE TRACK IS ON THE BANDS NEW EP ‘MIDNIGHT MALARKY’ WHICH DROPS TODAY!
SHANAZ’ CAKE EP WAS SELF RELEASED EARLIER THIS YEAR VIA SOUNDCLOUD. ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD YET. THE EP FEATURES THREE LO-FI SUPER STRIPPED DOWN TO THE BASICS SOULFUL TRACKS. THE MUSIC PERFECTLY CUSHIONS HER DELICATELY SMOOTH R&B VOCALS, ECLECTIC ENOUGH TO HOLD YOUR ATTENTION AND YET STILL LEAVE THE VOICE FRONT AND CENTER…. LOVELY STUFF!
