If you don’t know the talent that is Jody Brock by now, I highly suggest you dive in right now!
I have been following his career for quite sometime now, and I am highly impressed with everything has put out. After what feels like forever, we finally get an EP that was definitely worth the wait titled ‘Phoenix’. The one word I would use to describe Jody Brock and this whole EP is “Raw”. His sound is verging on rock with a soul which is definitely a sound we don’t have anywhere right now. If I had to compare it something, it would definitely be The Black Keys, but don’t let that get stuck in your head, because Jody adds so much more to that sound. Each track has a very distinct sound but keeps a very rock vibe going for it. I can’t even begin to describe the vocals on this EP, I thought I had heard it all, vocally, from him but he continues to impress.
Although I love the EP as a whole, I have to admit ‘User’ is definitely a standout track for me, so much depth and meaning behind every word in that song. I have posted the video for the song after the jump, which I highly suggest you watch right now!
Thank you Jody Brock for creating this, and I definitely hope this gives him enough momentum to cross over and play some shows in the USA here soon!
After falling in love with his talent, go buy the EP right here —–> Phoenix EP
Ladies and Gentleman, we finally have some real talent from the USA, and I’m super excited to share this with you!
Heard a little buzz going around from this EP, so I decided to give it a spin and let me tell you, I wasn’t the least bit disappointed. Brayton Bowman is a sort of soulful, yet funky mixed with a little R&B talent. This short 4 track EP doesn’t do justice to the amount of Talent this guy has. I don’t really know anything about him just yet, but I intend to keep a close watch on him, he is just getting started and I can’t wait to hear what he has in store.
BOOTS has slowly made his way on to my radar after some fantastic releases. After finding out he basically produced Beyonce’s newest album, I was very intrigued to see what he was able to do on his own. He released ‘Howl‘ and many other tracks that I have grown to love and keep on repeat. Now he finally graces us with his ever so smooth and haunting mixtape WinterSpringSummerFall, and even though I have just begun to listen to it, I can tell, just like everything else BOOTS has put out, this will not disappoint!
In honor of Valentines Day, one of my all time favorites, JoJo has released a short 4 track EP for us today! You guys already know I’m a huge JoJo fan, and now that shes released from blackground, I’m currently sitting on the edge of my chair for her big comeback with her 3rd album. I’ll take what I can for now, and this is just fine. Take a listen below!
Most of you probably haven’t heard of these talented guys known as the Afro Deezy Axe, yet. These guys are currently a local band located near the Dallas,Texas area and after a couple of years of gigging locally, they have managed to release an EP, and I have to say it sounds fantastic! The short 5 track EP features some of their best songs and doesn’t even begin to show the aura they give out during a live show. I highly recommend if you’re ever near to check them out!
The above track is the only one I could find in full on Youtube titled ‘Stay With Me’. Definitely check out the others on the EP even if you aren’t a fan of this track, they are all fantastic!
Anyway, you can check out their EP via Spotify and iTunes
Keep up to date with their gigs on facebook
It’s been a while since we have heard anything from Katy B, and recently she has been teasing us about dropping new music. She finally releases a short EP with 4 tracks on it, which is available to download for free! I love me some Katy B, and each of these tracks fits her usual sound, but yet still gives a different style from her previous album. Collaborating with such people as Jessie Ware, Wiley, Diplo, and even Iggy Azalea these tracks are smash hits, and will definitely chart in the UK.
Track list includes:
1. Katy B x Geeneus x Jessie Ware – Aaliyah
2. Katy B x Zinc x Wiley – Got Paid
3. Katy B x Diplo x Iggy Azalea – Light as A Feather
4. Katy B x Jacques – Greene Danger
