sc Been really enjoying the soul jazz artists coming out lately.  After really diving into the Joomanji catalog, I heard about this new band, Space Captain, from Brooklyn NY.
Melding elements of hip hop, soul and psychedelic rock, the Brooklyn-based group are set to release their first double A-side “Easier”/ “Remedy”, with Tru Thoughts on July 24th, ahead of a debut EP later this year.

ohland-wishbone Swoon.  Of course she's Danish.  I randomly stumbled across Oh Land today, and I'm not regretting it.  Great sounds, from dance tunes to dream pop goodness like "Three Chances" below. "Wish Bone" is available now on Tusk or Tooth Records.

Little Shalimar – The Best Thing Since Chin Chin

January 6, 2012 at 8:00 am
I posted on Facebook today that I was waiting for a band to make me as excited as I was when Chin Chin's "The Flashing, The Fancing" was released in 2009.  As I decided to write this post, I checked out Little Shalimar's homepage and what did I discover? Torbitt Schwartz, the brains behind Little Shalimar, is also founder of Chin Chin.  I thought there were striking similarities in the vocals.  Chin Chin's sound is much more dance oriented, with some other instruments involved.  I was instantly impressed with Torbitt's new release, The New Pneumonia Blues, and couldn't wait to share it with you.  Unfortunately, no upcoming shows in Los Angeles, but maybe we can convince to come out for no money.  This is just good, fun, rock n' roll, and I can dig it. You can download the new Little Shalimar EP for free on bandcamp.  Check him out on Facebook as well.  "Winds of Wackness" is definitely my favorite track.
