It’s a Trans Musicales special this week for the New Music section from the On The Record column in tomorrow’s edition of The Ticket. Please feel free to share tips below or check out all past New Music selections here.

Petite Noir

South African kid Yannick Ilunga was formerly a member of the Spoek Mathambo crew but is now producing dark, beguiling, post-Afro indie pop with some magnificently weird angles to it. Check out “Pressure” or “Till We Ghosts” for the new Cape Town swing.

Phoebe Jean

From Baltimore, Phoebe Jean Dunne makes pop music which sparkles and glows with all manner of different tricks and teases. One part Neneh Cherry to one part Santigold, her debut album “Heartbreakers” is full of dashing funk and strong tunes.

Lou Doillon

The lady from a prestigious French cultural family (Jane Birkin is her mere and film director Jacques Doillon is her pere) has ‘em swooning with chic folk and boho pop. Debut album “Places”, produced by Etienne Daho, is a good place to go to find out more.
