Yumi Zouma – “December”

Recorded in the band’s home country of New Zealand, “December” is the first song from Yumi Zouma’s upcoming album, Willowbank, set to be released October 6, 2017 on Cascine.

Keyboardist/guitarist/vocalist Josh Burgess commented on the band meeting in New Zealand to record the album, “It was as though there was a brief pause in all of our lives and we finally felt like a band from New Zealand… We were on home turf and creating from a place that felt fundamentally natural.”

Kedr Livanskiy – “Ariadna”

Kedr Livanskiy has a lovely new track, “Ariadna” (ариадна), from the album of the same name which will be out September 8th.

The song was named after the Greek goddess Ariadne, according to her label 2MR, which also had this statement about the artist and her work:

Moscow’s Kedr Livanskiy (real name Yana Kedrina) confesses “Synthesizers help me maximally feel the present moment.” Livanskiy was born into a shifting and critical time for Russia. The Soviet Union had exhausted and old values were anathematized because of reconstruction. A sense of displacement drove Kedr to find herself. She’s escaped reality repeatedly in her explorations into the imagery and ideas of romanticism, mythical and fairytale themes which visibly bleed throughout her work and especially on her debut full-length ‘Ariadna’.

007

I’ve always liked this little gem from Desmond Dekker & The Aces, and Trojan Records just posted a video for this 1966 song, “007”:

If that doesn’t ring a bell, you might recognize them from their more popular classic, “Israelites.”
