Fill me in…

#disco-_-funkyness had the sounds this past week, thanks in big part to @davehawkins. Getting the week off to a good start, he gave us a sound from the Los Angeles group known as LUXXURY. They embody the word disco like nobody else in this day in age and their song “Take It Slow” definitely finds its groove. The visuals that accompany their latest single are definitely on the interesting side...see for yourself:

Moving on to a channel we haven’t heard from on The Needle in a while: #folk Big S/O to @pedronunes for sharing with us a Josephine Foster song called, “My Dove, My Beautiful One”. The Colorado, US native has been making her way around the music industry for 15+ years spanning from the release of psychedelic rock album, teaching music in Chicago, living and recording folk from rural Spain, to most recently, releasing an album entitled “No More Lamps In The Morning”. Don’t be surprised if you get stuck in the entire album.

What else is going on?

 

In seemingly perfect poetic justice, the Eagles of Death Metal finished their Paris live show that previously came to a halt with the terror attacks of November. The sold out show featured a moment of silence before the music began and the vibe was heavier than normal (as expected). Some people who were at the show on Nov. 13 attended as well. More info from the NY Times here.


The #electronic pioneers, Kraftwerk, are nothing less than legendary for those who (+ some who don't) subscribe to that style of music in Germany. Now, even the youngins are getting at it with this pretty awesome video that features a class of elementary school kids paying homage to the electronic greats...let’s just say I wish I went to elementary school in Germany.

Don’t sleep on…

 

A singer with (apparently) just one solo song released so far, Anna Wise. She’s appeared on both good kid, m.A.A.d city and To Pimp A Butterfly and is ready to fill her own spotlight. It isn’t hard to tell from listening to the one and only song released under her name, “Precious Possession”, that her sound is definitely attractive.

People are already drawing comparisons to James Blake. Not sure how she feels about that, but it should definitely raise some eyebrows out there. Don’t sleep:
