This Is How We Fly “This Is How We Fly” (Self release)

This is what the future sounds like. Elegant and fresh sounds crossing international datelines between trad, folk and jazz sources.

Sleep Thieves “Sparks” (Self release)

Bewitching, beguiling, dark-hearted electropop from the Dublin trio

Hubie Davison “Haven” (Leisure System)

Lush slo-mo house with a lovely swing from the Irish producer and DJ’s debut EP “I Won’t Be There”

Lorde “Pure Heroine” (Island)

Perfectly off-kilter and compelling pop from the New Zealand teen.

Various “New Orleans Funk 3” (Soul Jazz)

Get your Mardi Gras beads on for cuts from Allen Touissant, Betty Harris, Professor Longhair, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Dixie Cups (“Two Way Poc A Way” below) and many more.
