THE ECLECTIC EIGHT

1) TANYA AUCLAIR is a UK born and bred k-pop singer-musician. She has a pretty solid following abroad and I’m she’ll make her rounds here soon enough and generate more buzz here. For check her out here and take a listen here.

2)NIA ANDREWS is a singer-songwriter based out of LA. She is unsigned talent who somehow along the way in her journey to be a writer for Common (rapper yes) and worked with few other artists as well. Check out her music here.

3)JASON YARDE I came across him while surfing online and he is actually done more work for other artists, composing and arranging tracks, but recently he began working on his own music. It’s playful jazz. Take a listen here.

4)TWO BANKS OF FOUR is a neo-jazz band from UK. Another group I came across surfing for music. I am fusion-obsessed as of late if you couldn’t tell and their music makes me happy. I think it’ll have same effect on you soooo go check it out here.

5)EDITORS is British rock band that is apparently signed to The FADER’s label ( I had no clue FADER even had a label). They have the whole 80’s new-wave band sound but more polished modern sound. Check them out here.

6)TAME IMPALA is a an Australian pop-ish band. They apparently have teamed up with MGMT to go on a tour so you can imagine what type of sound their music has and that it probably will be a show worth catching. Check out the group’s music here.

7)COLECO is a UK based musician. He has done more producing work over the years but he does have his own personal material. Sounds like a fusion of reggae, hip/hop and electronica with a dab of latin. Definitely interesting music and probably best for the 9-5 grind listening time. Take a listen here for yourself.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

8)FRANCIS AND THE LIGHTS is an unsigned band based out of NYC led by a real Francis and he has quite the voice. Something about his voice reminds me of Little Richard and Prince. Pretty good music, on the pop/rock side. Check them out here.
