Get ready to go through a variety of emotions with this video
On the heel of their exhilarating weekend at SXSW 2013 and a US/Europe tour, Sinkane releases a new video for Warm Spell!!!
Hiatus Kaiyote is the quintessential music head’s band. Before we got out first dose of Hiatus Kaiyote at SXSW 2013, we kept hearing about them from some really dope musicians and DJs we know. The bar was set high and they did not disappoint. This is Hiatus Kaiyote’s first US tour and the American audience’s response, no matter which city, has been nothing short of reverence for this new band.

Also, with a name like Nai Palm and a voice to match, we can’t help but categorize this under Birds Like !!!
Meet Inc. We fell in love at Fader Fort.
We’re teetering between a post-SXSW high and withdrawal so check in with us regularly for SXSW 2013 inspired posts.
Last year we saw Gilles Peterson plug Kilo by bringing her out at his LPR DJ set for a live PA. A well deserved plug. Listen to her new mixtape here.
One of the cool things about going to an Oddisee show is that we can rep Brooklyn, DC/MD, and Sudan right along with him.

This is more than a cover. It’s a complete re-imagination of a song
I love following the journey music and musicians take. And how apt is it that the title of this song is Stimela, which means train. I can honestly write a full essay about Wynter Gordon’s powerful control over her voice, the journey from the original Stimela by Hugh Masekela to her version on Doleo, and how the this phase in Gordon’s career is going to be exponentially more inspiring than her songwriting and dance music background. Listen to her perform Stimela on NPR’s soundcheck, and check out Masekela’s version below.
Trust that anything coming from Brownswood Recording, Gilles Peterson’s label, is going to be excellent music. Check out Troumaca from Birmingham (UK). Their entire soundcloud page jams.
So Many Details

AlunaGeorge’s sound is both timely and nostalgic. I don’t know how they do it, but it works.
