SONG PICK: Mexican Radio – Pretty Out There

SONG PICK: Sara-Danielle – Sometimes

There is something in the music of Sara-Danielle that keeps it from falling into the background. You may think that you listen to jazzy lounge music in one moment, but then something happens that throws you off and gives a song a whole new spin. “Healing,” the second album of[…]

SONG PICK: Some Bodies – Higher Self

“Higher Self” the new single by Bristol five-piece Some Bodies packs so much gorgeous harmonies in its 3:33 minutes that it can even absorb an almost but not quite dissonant sonic piece announcing the third part of the track. The band also doesn’t seem to take themselves too seriously when[…]
