Florian Pellissier Quintet

Timeless, the Florian Pellissier Quintet travels in jazz from Paris to New York. A rule of the game would be to rediscover the flavor of groups New Yorkers of the 60's coming to mix with the European musicians of the time. These guys are smooth. Dreamy.



Thank God It's Friday (Part 3)

I'm going back into the 2011 saved drafts for Thank God It's Friday. We've got the soulful voice of Marcus Foster and a fun track from El Ten Eleven. And lastly the indie party vibes of NewVillager and Grouplove.









Khruangbin

Khruangbin is a three-piece band from Texas, formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald Johnson on drums. Thanks to their 70s vibe If I remade Oceans 11 or Driver I would use their music.





KOKOROKO

KOKOROKO is a London based Afrobeat 7-Piece. They play music they love and grew up with. Inspired by the greats of West African they honor their masters through music. Also they definitely have a Buena Vista Social Club vibe and that's saying something.



Thank God It's Friday (Part 2)

For TGIF again I'm pulling tracks from my 2011 saved drafts. It's a punk, electronic and indie rock selection that I still dig. The hidden gems are "Outtacontrol" by LDFD, "Antics" by Jubilants, "Hyperlips" by Com Truise, "Swim" by Wishing Wars and "Long Gone" by Prison For Kids.









Thank God It's Friday

For TGIF this week I'm digging through my saved drafts from 2011 for nuggets. I've had this blog for almost ten years and there are saved links that I don't remember. Featured below are "Electric Lady" by Tesla Boy, "Sandcastle" by Beverlay, "Plastic Slides" by Winter Gloves, "Lets Lightning" by Pull Tiger Tail and "Funeral" (Band of Horses cover) by Copenhagen Collaboration. You can thank Oscar & Ander for the last one.









Moonchild

It's like if Flying Lotus, Pomplamoose and Sade had a watered down Los Angeles baby. Moonchild is on to something.
