New Music – PANES, Lizzo, Anna Jordan
New music arrivals from London, Minneapolis and Dublin
OTR recently featured a story about the return of Neneh Cherry, but she’s not the only member of the family making choice tunes at the moment. PANES sees her daughter Tyson McVey team up with producer Shaun Savage (Flesh & Bone collective) for a run of dark, dramatic r’n’b cuts like “Choice Errors” and “A Narrative. An End”
“Batches & Cookies” is the reason why folks are going mega right now for this tornado. Fierce, feisty and loud, “Batches & Cookies” is an old-school banger for the modern age from the Minneapolis-based rapper. Listen to debut album “Lizzobangers” for more reasons for those comparisons to Queen Latifah, Missy Elliott and Salt & Pepa.
While Anna Jordan’s debut EP “Dust” was only released in the last few months, she’s already accumulated a long list of credits thanks to composing scores and incidental music for films like Breakfast On Pluto and Snap. “Dust” is a lovely, striking mix of styles from jazz and pop to ambient and classical.
