So, you might notice a few bands on this list that sound nothing like what I have been posting lately. They are The Octopus Project and Matt And Kim, both have obscure sounds that I found playful and fun, so I thought I would share. Matt And Kim have this innocence about their sound, it made me really connect with their music.
The other thing you might notice if you pay any attention week over week, is my love for soul music, for that bluesy Chicago motown sound. I really love people like Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye and as such you will see this carry over in the new artists I search out. This weeks additions of this genre are Michael Kiwanuka and Emeli Sandé, who are both intense, yet delicate. They will take you places with their music, they will make everything else melt away. Some people call Emeli the next Adele, which is funny because her real name is in fact Adele. Michael is coming to the Commoodre in the fall. DO NOT MISS HIM!!!!!.
